Sinful Colors Metallics

Walgreens had the new Sinful Colors Metallics display this evening so I thought I'd give you a very quick preview of them. I'll be doing full swatches later, but for now here are bottle shots and one-finger swatches.


Sinful Colors Metallics

Sinful Colors Metallics: L-R Moss Have, Hot Wired, Heavy Metal and Hot Hot Heat

Sinful Colors: L-R Precious Metal, Zincing of You, Super Nova and Gone Platinum



My quick first thoughts:

Gone Platinum - Violet Purple - 2 coats for opacity - more of a frosty look than a metallic
Heavy Metal - Sliver - 2 coats for opacity
Precious Metal - Blue - 3 coats for opacity
Moss Have - Green - 2 coats for opacity - more of a frosty look than a metallic
Hot Wired - Grey - 3 coats for opacity
Super Nova - Rose Gold - 2 coats for opacity
Zincing of You - Taupe - 3 coats for opacity
Hot Hot Heat - Red - 2 coats for opacity


So what do you think of these?  I'm not a huge fan of metallics (or frosts) but overall, these weren't bad. The red was similar to butter LONDON Knees up only a darker, deeper red.

Quick and dirty comparison swatch...


Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat vs butter LONDON Knees Up

These are available at Walgreens and wherever Sinful Colors polishes are sold and retail for $1.99 for a full .5 oz bottle.

    1. I haven't tried but I think the red, green and purple would be good. The others wouldn't.

    2. Actually the silver and rose gold *might* be okay. The others are too sheer.

  2. How do you think super nova compares to penny talk?

    1. Penny Talk is more of a smoother looking chrome polish and Super Nova has more of a textured metallic look.

    1. I don't have Red Carpet, but Ruby Pumps isn't a metallic and this one is.

  9. I like metallics, but I was surprised to read that the dark blue needs three coats to be opaque. It's should be possible to make the formula so it needed maximum 2 coats for opacity. It's a dark colour after all.

  10. I think they look alright but with the other metallics out they don't compare! However I'm sure I'll be picking up a few of these
