Sinful Colors Halloween 2009 Collection Swatches and Review

Happy Friday!

One day until Halloween! I am excited about our “haunted garage” we’re doing this year. I haven’t yet done a trial run of my makeup though, so I’m kinda nervous it’s going to turn out like crap. Oh well, at least it will be dark ;-)

Today I’ve got the Sinful Colors Halloween collection for 2009. Well I have all except the basic black one, because we all know what black looks like by now.

I have only reviewed two Sinful Colors polishes in the past because I had a horrible experience once. About a year ago I tried out the San Francisco color, and used CND’s Stickey base coat and then either Seche Vite or Poshe top coat. The polish turned sticky, weird, and never, ever dried! I mean not at all. It was so bizarre! That combo did not work, so I never really tried any of their stuff since then. But I saw these, and had to get ‘em. Peep ‘em out!

Sinful Let Me Go
Let Me Go

Let Me Go is a very pale blue/pink/lavender/green opalescent pearl polish. I thought this was going to be super, duper cool when I saw it in the bottle, but it’ so sheer it’s just kinda meh for me. This was three coats.

Sinful Courtney Orange
Courtney Orange

Courtney Orange is a bright orange shimmer. I think this is a perfect Halloween color, and I love the yellow shimmer running through it. This was three coats.

Sinful Irish Green
Irish Green

Irish Green is a bright lime green. This was VERY sheer, so I was disappointed. As you can see, even after three coats you can see my nails underneath, and I really don’t like that! Cool green though.

Sinful What's Your Name
What’s Your Name

What’s Your Name is a black with dark blue micro-glitter. In the bottle this looked SO cool, it was blue glitter, and had swirls of purple in it. But turns out it’s not as original as I had hoped. Don’t get me wrong, I love the color, but I have many colors very similar to this that I like better. This was three coats.

Overall I think this is an ok collection, but nothing to write home about. For the price the polishes are pretty good. These were each $2.29 (correction $1.99) at Walgreen’s.

If we don’t talk until after tomorrow, have a happy Halloween! Oh and don’t you worry, I will be posting pics of my costume/makeup and our garage, etc. :)

    Courtney Orange is pretty, I might have to pick that one up! The name is odd though. What could it be named after??

    I got What’s Your Name and Let Me Go too but haven’t yet tried them. I wish Let Me Go looked on nails like it looks in the bottle :( oh well. Happy Hallowen and I can’t wait to see pictures of your makeup and costume!

    $2.29? I thought they were always $1.99? Or is that because of tax?

      Hi Mariah,

      You are correct! Something else was $2.29. Am correcting that now, thanks!

    I have quite a lot of these polishes, and What’s Your Name really comes to life when paired with Pearl Harbor [clear base with small purple and blue glitter].

    Oh man, Let Me Go looked so promising in the bottle. I would have loved it if it had managed to get opaque.

    happy halloween Kelly!
    I think that “let me go” can lookg amazing layered over black or other dark color.

    I have a couple of those colors–Let Me Go and What’s Your Name?. They really are nice colors, but I too don’t like the sheerness of Let Me Go. It took me six or seven coats for full impact. Maybe if it was layered over a black creme, that might work? And I wonder why Sinful has to make many of their polishes so sheer you need at least four coats for full impact? I love their colors and the price, but come on, we need a bit more opacity!

    Courtney Orange is Halloween! But I’d wear it whenever – I love orange polish! Especially when it costs $1.99 ;)

    I like Sinful Colors polish. I have Irish Green, Brooke from GetchaNailsDid sent it too me. I love the shade. Courtney Orange is a great looking shade for Halloween and the Fall season. What a shame Let Me Go doesn’t translate well on the nai. They are cheap but there are some great colors.
