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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
