I noticed that some of my most popular posts are the ones featuring Sinful Colors swatches, so I though that I should swatch all of my Sinful Colors polishes for you. I managed to miss a few (I’ve managed to buy a lot of these polishes – mostly while they were on sale for $1 each), but here are 30 swatches. Since there are so many polishes, I did these on nail wheels.
The first wheel starts with some miscellaneous topcoats (and a metallic), goes to pink, then we start the rainbow – red, orange, yellow, and green. All swatches are two coats unless otherwise noted.
Because this post is so long and image-heavy, I’ve placed the rest of the photographs behind a cut (hopefully it works) so the front page of the blog doesn’t get too long and load slowly!
All about you is a very small gold flake. It’s very dense, and I love it. Here’s another swatch of it from an older Sinful Colors swatch post I did:
I love it all the different ways. All About You is a permanent shade.
Super Nova is a rose gold metallic foil. It was a limited edition shade, and is not currently available, but Sinful often brings back LE shades.
Smoking Hot is a very fine translucent glitter. This is one coat.
Social Ladder is a palest pink shimmer. It is slightly transparent at two coats. It is a permanent shade.
Truth or Dare is part of the currently available, limited-edition Kiss & Tell Valentine’s Day display.
Georgio is part of the same LE Valentine’s day display. It’s a slightly transparent dark red at one coat, and even darker with two coats (as pictured).
Sugar Sugar is a metallic red with shimmer. This isn’t really my type of shade, but it’s quite beautiful. (Permanent)
Clementine is a gorgeous, saturated bright orange creme. It’s just about opaque in one coat – many of Sinful’s cremes are. I had thought this was a permanent shade, but I don’t see it on Sinful’s website, so perhaps it was LE.
Let’s Meet is a cheerful yellow shimmer. It takes three coats to be opaque. Again, this one isn’t listed online, so it must be LE.
Green Ocean is a flakie with a base that is tinted green. It also has some glitter pieces in it. It’s best as a layering shade. I believe this shade comes out every year as a LE shade for St. Patrick’s Day.
Last Chance is a crelly (cream/jelly) finish deep green. It looks black in some lighting. This shade was part of the Enchanted Collection and is not currently available.
Rise and Shine is a very pretty turquoise green with some shimmer that (for some odd reason) dries semi-matte. I usually wear it with topcoat. (Permanent).
Mint Apple is similar to Rise and Shine, but has a glossy finish and is a bit lighter. It’s one of my favorite Sinful shades. (Permanent)
Here are In the Mist and Leap Flog side by side, since they’re so close – In The Mist is just a touch darker. In The Mist was part of the Enchanted Collection; Leap Flog has been released a few times I think.
Time for the second wheel! Blues, purples (that blue in the middle of the purples is really bothering me), greys.
Cinderella is a pale baby blue with pink shimmer. It’s a permanent shade (and very popular, though not my favorite).
I’ve photographed Why Not and Ocean Side together, since they look almost identical in the bottle; clearly, they are different when swatched, though I would describe each as a mid-tone blue. Why Not is permanent, Ocean Side was LE.
Rain Storm is one of my favorites – a deep, greyed blue. It is LE, part of the Enchanted Collection.
Lavender is a blue-lavender, and LE.
Inkwell is a very, very deep purple. It looks black in the bottle and in some lights. It was released as part of the Enchanted Collection as well, and is LE.
Mesmerize is a deep purple; it looks almost black in my swatch, but doesn’t appear black in person. I’ve heard it’s a dupe for Essie No More Film, but can’t confirm. It is LE, and was released as part of the Enchanted Collection and then again with the Sinful Matte topcoat.
Daddy’s Girl is another favorite – a deep but bright purple with flecks of lighter purple. It’s very sheer, and this is three coats. It’s a permanent shade.
Precious Metal should have been swatched with the blues, but here it is with the purples. It was an LE shade.
Winterberry, a shimmery slightly greyed purple, is another LE – it has been released multiple times.
Muse is another favorite. It’s anothered greyed out purple, but this time a creme. It is also LE.
Nirvana is taupe – a greyed brown with a hint of purple. It is permanent.
Jungle Trail, a light grey, is another LE from the Enchanted Collection (I loved it and bought the whole collection, which is why I have so many from it!).
Smokin’ is a LE that been released a few times lately. It’s a blue-based grey, and is a dupe for NARS Stormbird – side by side swatches here.
And finally, Slate is a LE shimmery grey. I believe it has been released a few times now.
Whew, that was a lot of swatches! I hope this post is helpful to someone, at some point!
