Oh, how the tables have turned.
When Walgreen’s carried Sinful Colors Nail Polish, I’d wait for the sales, hoping for 5/$5, but 3/$5 or 2/$3 were good, too. The sales were few and far between, but at least they still carried it…until now. Walgreen’s no longer carries Sinful Colors, but their main outlet is now Walmart. I’ve seen displays at HEB and Target, as well as buckets at Big Lots – but the new collections are dropping at Walmart.
I had to make an emergency cat litter work after work one night last week, so I made a reconnaissance run through the makeup aisle and there it was – the brand new Sinful Colors display, barely touched. I filled my carts with two full collections – the Naughty Nudes Collection and the Sinful Mattes Collection. 18 bottles of nail polish, rolling around in my cart. I looked for a bottle of Base Coat, but there wasn’t a space for it in the display – I’ve got to search for it. I passed on the new Sinful Shines, a bit pricey for me at $2.98 each.
Ultimately, only the Naughty Nudes ended up coming home with me. when I was checking out, the Sinful Mattes were also $2.98 each. I didn’t feel like spending another $30 on nail polish right this second – $17.82 is bad enough.
The Naughty Nudes Collection consists of (clockwise, starting with the lightest color at about eight o’clock) “Strike a Pose”, “Tease”, “Nakey Nay” (my personal favorite name), “Copper a Feel”, “Come Closer”, “Body Language”, “SkinTillating”, “Nude Mood”, and “Skinny Dip”.
I have regrets about skipping a few of the Sinful Shines, specifically “Poison Apple” and “Let’s Flamingle”. I need to go back…
