new in: sinful colors KYLIE collection
Makeup has always excited me. Same with fashion. Nail polish.....not so much. Sure, I loved having nicely painted nails. But there was nothing super thrilling about nail polish. All I needed were a couple of cute shades and I was good. That has changed over the last little while. I have been getting more creative with my nail looks. Trying to use different colours, adding an accent nail, putting on polka dots, tossing on a gemstone or two. You get the idea! It is a whole new type of self expression.
My nail polish collection is fairly modest. Though there are certainly more colours in there than there used to be! There have been a few recent additions as well. I was not looking to buy any more nail polish shades. Then I saw a massive display of Sinful Colors: Sinful Shine. There was a giant picture of Kylie Jenner on the display - and Kylie's name all over the nail polish bottles. The prices were super affordable (between $2.99 and $3.99 per nail polish) and I am a Kardashian/Jenner fanatic. So, I figured why not? That is how I wound up spending twenty minutes pouring over the display.
It was an overwhelming process. Simply because I was determined not to buy more than four. Quite frankly because I did not need more than four. (Even though I wanted way more than four. The colours were so beautiful! Most of them had a subtle shimmer but there was a matte collection as well.) That meant decisions needed to be made. In the end....I chose a shimmery ivory (Kovet from the Signature Collection), Karamel (a shimmery nude from the Signature Collection), Kryptonite (a shimmery emerald green from the Signature Collection), and Kosmic (a super sparkly mix of colours from the Denim and Bling Collection). These shades were chosen simply because they would get the most use. Gorgeous neutral nails are always in style. And I threw in a pop of colour and a pretty glitter polish for good measure.
How do they perform? Surprisingly well. The polish has been on my nails for a week now with minimal chipping. The only issue I had was with applying too much. Thin coats are essential - otherwise it takes hours upon hours to dry completely. Just a little something to keep in mind if you decide to purchase something from the line! These shades are gorgeous and I really love how they look. Fingers crossed there will be a few more shades in my future.
What do you think of these nail polish colours? Have you tried anything from the line?
