I recently stumbled upon a full drugstore display of a new Sinful Colors Enchanted collection – filled with murky, dusty cremes – my favorites! I bought five of the six polishes – I skipped Inkwell, since it looked like a black creme, and I have plenty of those already.
Update: Per commenter Stella, Inkwell is not black – it’s a purple! Based on her comment I purchased it, and I would describe it as a dark, vampy eggplant purple. Thanks Stella!
The seven colors I bought are Last Chance (deep green creme), Rain Storm (dusty blue creme), Mesmerize (deep purple creme), Muse (dusty greyed out purple creme), Jungle Trail (pale grey creme), Smokin (medium grey creme), and In The Mist (dusty/murkey green/grey creme).
As an aside, let me also note that I am aware of the recent controversy over Sinful Colors stealing bloggers’ images. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, start here, then read this update. G. at Nouveau Cheap, who I respect and admire very much, has decided not to cover Sinful Colors polishes on her blog for now. While I respect that decision, I have come to a different conclusion for now. Until I know what’s going on, I will continue to buy Sinful Colors polishes and swatch them for the blog; if new information comes to light I will reevaluate. You are welcome to comment on this, but please be respectful.
Back to the polishes themselves – some of these polishes are new, and some are repromotes. In order to determine which was which, I googled for color names. As best as I can tell:
Inkwell (not swatched here) is new.
Last Chance is a repromote.
Rain Storm is a repromote – I actually realized when I got home that I already owned this, and swatched it previously here!
Mesmerize is new.
Muse – I’m not sure about this one – it is probably new.
Jungle Trail is new.
Smokin is new.
In The Mist is new.
Here are some comparisons:
Sinful Colors Jungle trail is just a little bit darker than NYC Sidewalkers.
Sinful Colors Mesmerize is a bit duskier and deeper than Nails Inc. Belgrave Place, which is brighter and cleaner.
Sinful Colors Muse is more purple than Sinful Colors Nirvana, which has more brown.
Sinful Colors Muse and Winterberry are very similar, but Muse is a creme and Winterberry is a shimmer/frost.
Sinful Colors In the Mist and Leap Flog are very close, but In the Mist is a tiny bit darker and duskier than Leap Flog.
Here’s a picture of the display so you can recognize it if you see it:
Overall, I love these colors. Cremes are my favorite finish, and I love the dusty colors of this collection.
Update! I saw this collection at Walgreens today – all the polishes are the same, but it’s called the “Muse” Collection instead of the “Enchanted” Collection. I have no idea why.
