Good morning! Today I have super quick swatches of a rainbow of colors from the new Walgreens-exclusive (per Nouveau Cheap) shades from the Sinful Colors Summer 2014 Destination Color display. The red, orange, and yellow are textures, and the green, blue, and purple are sheer toppers (though the green and blue are too milky to work over darker colors, however). Continue reading
Sinful Colors has released three new collections for Summer 2014, each with a mix of permanent, repromoted, and new shades. You can read all the details about each collection on Nouveau Cheap. I bought one new shade from each collection (plus a repromote), and have quick swatches of them for you today. Continue reading
A few days ago, I posted about Sinful Colors’s new Sail La Vie collection – I have display photos here. Note that this colIection is called Sail La Vie at Walgreens and Ahoy There! at Rite Aid – both collections have the same polishes. bought all four of the blue shades (plus Sunburnt from the Pool Side Polish Collection, swatched here). I have quick swatches of the blue shades for you now.
I have a quick swatch for you this morning; Sinful Colors Sunburnt, from the new Pool Side Polish collection (display photos and more information is here).
The color is gorgeous, but I found the polish to be a bit streaky – if you look closely, you can see that it’s still a bit streaky and uneven looking in the photo, which is is two coats without topcoat. For $1.99, I’d say that if you love the color it’s still worth it, but it’s not one of Sinful Colors’s better formulas.

Sinful Colors recently released a new line of permanent products, the Sinful Shine polishes with Gel Tech – supposedly five times glossier than the regular line of Sinful Colors polishes (many of which I find quite glossy, actually). Per the display, these can be found exclusively at Walgreens.
I think you can tell where I’m going with this post based on the photo.
So, I bought Sinful Colors Endless Blue from the new Sinful Colors Buff to Bright Collection (more information on that collection here). I bought it partly because I am loving blues right now, and partly because I was curious to see if it was a good dupe for Nails, Inc. Baker St. Note that Baker St. is also duped by Essie Butler Please and quite similar to Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, but the Sinful Colors is the least expensive of all.
Here’s another close up comparison, this time with flash:
In my opinion, they are excellent dupes; the only different I notice is that Nail, Inc. Baker St. dries to a satin / low-gloss finish and Sinful Colors Endless Blue dries to a high-gloss finish (both swatches are completely dry in the photo). Both have good formulas; I did find the Sinful Colors just a touch thicker than I prefer, so I thinned it just a little bit. It is useable as bought.
And finally, a quick swatch of Endless Blue on the nail:
Overall, I would definitely recommend Endless Blue – both as a lovely polish in it’s own right, and as a $2 dupe for the more expensive Nails, Inc. Baker St.
