I have an exciting post for you today. Well I'm excited about it anyway. It is the *NEW* Sinful Colors Sheer Shimmers Collection or the Girl's In Pearls Collection. They display says both. I went on a hunt for these after a fellow blogger said she wanted them in a swap. Luckily I only had to stalk two Walgreen's to find it. I walked in and BAM! The full display ready for me to take home. So of course I picked up one set for her and one for myself. Now let's see what we have.
Let us begin!
Firefly is a creamy medium yellow with silver glass flecks. I don't have any yellow that is this beautiful. This is easily my favorite polish in the collection but the application was a nightmare with 3 coats and the formula was a little thick. It was very uneven and refused to self level much like a few of the other polishes. I was thinking if I layer one coat of this over a similarly colored yellow polish, I could get away with it. I will definitely try to make something work.
Now we have Flutter, a dusty pink with the same silver glass flecks as every other in the collection. This is another nightmare of an application because of the thick formula. However, I was almost able to pull of 2 coats, but not quite. I'm not in love with this one mainly because I'm not a pink lover. I mean it's pretty, but that's about it. I like a good "Wow Factor" when it comes to pink polish. I just don't think this has it. Simple as that.
Morning Star is a dusty periwinkle blue. Unfortunately my camera did not pick it up correctly. This is a really gorgeous color IRL and it's even better when you see the shimmer IRL as well. The formula on this one was definitely better, but still required 3 coats to full opacity.
Lastly is Sweet Dreams, a beautiful saturated turquoise blue. This one has a lot less shimmer than the other 4, but it is still very visible. This was the only polish in the collection that covered in 2 coats. If I were careful I could have gotten away with 1, but again, they don't like to self level. My only complaint with Sweet Dreams is the amount of shimmer. I feel like it's an outcast. A wannabe if you will.
So what is my overall opinion of the Sinful Colors Sheer Shimmers Collection, you ask? I LOVE IT. I think my love for the shimmer and the gorgeous colors trumps the difficult applications and thick formulas. I mean, they are "sheer shimmers" so if I can get a good even application in 1 coat, then I would wear it just so. Also layering them over similar creme colors would help.
I really hope you guys enjoyed this post. It took me forever because I am so not focused. My mind is all over the place. Now that I'm done, I feel like I've accomplished something so great. LOL! Just leave your comments and questions below and I'll be sure to answer them. I can also pick these up for you guys if you have a swap in mind.
Have a great Saturday!
