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.
