New Sinful Colors: Sinful Shine

Recently, I saw a different kind of Sinful Colors display at Walgreens that caught my eye.  These were new and with fancy silver caps so for $3 I had to try a few.  Boy, I was not disappointed!

I picked up In the Limelight & Alfresco.

Sinful Shine In the Limelight.  I picked this up because I thought it would be a close dupe to Zoya's Josie.  In the Limelight is not a lime green at all it's more of a dusty grass green.  It's more of a subdued green.  It's very wearable and not a "in your face" sort of green. 

I added some flower stamping from BM321. 

I thought white flowers would look good but these were too large.  This looks more like a St. Patrick's day manicure than a spring manicure. 

Sinful Shine Alfresco.  This is a periwinkle cream.  This color is also slightly dusty and subdued but my camera is picking it up as more vibrant than it is.  I've always been looking for a true periwinkle cream with a good formula.  The closest I have is Essie's Lapis of Luxury but its formula is thin, streaky and slow drying. 

I layered it with Sephora Chaotic (Connect the Dots dupe).

Final Thoughts & Availability? 

I purchased the Sinful Colors Sinful Shine polishes from Walgreens for $2.99.  These are available at select Walgreens but not at all locations (call ahead for availability).  I'm not sure if these a limited edition or will be a part of the permanent display.  I will be sad if they are limited edition.

Overall, the formula on these were thick and creamy and applied wonderfully.  In fact, the formula is a little too thick so you have to work to apply thinner coats.  These dried super glossy and did not require a top coat.  Also, they say with "gel tech" but these do not require any type of lamp to cure.

In sum, buy the whole display. 

**Double Bonus** 

I took a touristy boat tour around the bay. 

Thanks for reading!
