Big Mamaz Ship

I jumped right in to try one of my new Xtraterrestrial Effects polishes. This is Sinful Colors “Big Mamaz Ship”.

This is two coats of “Big Mamaz Ship” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat. I wanted to see the texture, so I did not use a top coat. The polish is more matte than I expected – like a dusty planet?

This polished reminds me of the old China Glaze Crinkled Chrome Collection. These polishes where more chromed (duh) than the matte Xtraterrestrial polishes.

Xtraterrestrial Effects

Oh, no biggie…but I found the ENTIRE Sinful Colors “Xtraterrestrial Effects” Halloween Collection by Saweetie at my Walmart. I absolutely bought them all, plus an extra set for a nail friend.

The pink one is “Big Mamaz Ship”, the blue one is “Icy Monstar”, the clay colored one is “Baelien”, and the green one is “Lil Beast”. They were $1.98 each. The collection also includes these alien nail decals ($2.98). I didn’t keep these, I had purchased them for my friend.

Time to get freaky with these textured polishes.

Skurt Skurt

What is a “Skurt Skurt”? Not only does it sound my cats puking…it also looks like cat puke! Cat owners know…

Sinful Colors “Skurt Skurt” is from Saweetie’s Graffiti Collection. I picked it up on a whim at HEB, along with “Hella Clean”, “Skurt Skurt”‘s lavender cousin.

This is just two coats of “Skurt Skurt” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

Sinful Colors does love their puke glitter…and I wouldn’t have it any other way. At least this one doesn’t smell like tacos.

Dragon Fruitie

I found another Saweetie “Vacation Vibes” polish at HEB! Add to cart…

Sinful Colors “Dragon Fruitie” is a less like a dragon fruit and more like a tomato-y red. It’s a true cream, which surprised me, since “Colada Mama” and “Mushy Gushy Mango” had a nice shimmer.

I started with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat, and then added two coats of “Dragon Fruitie”. My pinky is topped with Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat, while the rest of my fingers got regular Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

French Vanilla Starlight

After less than two days, most of the Dashing Diva Nail strips were lifting up and getting all linty. I just said, “fuck it” and peeled off the offending strips while walking around Kroger. (Don’t worry, I didn’t just drop them – I stuck them on the back of my shopping list.)

The stained glass accent strip on my ring finger was holding up well, so I left it on and built a whole new look around that one nail. After Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat, I did two coats of Sally Hansen x Jelly Belly “French Vanilla” on my thumb, index and middle fingers. “French Vanilla” is an odd polish – I’ve never seen a plain white jelly bean with sparse silver glitter, but whatever. My pinky got two coats of Sinful Colors “Starlight”. I also gave my index finger a light coat of “Starlight” over “French Vanilla”. “Starlight” is from the “Moon Metals” Collections – a sheer gold polish with sparse domed glitters. I finished off with Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat.

I have not been doing enough visually interesting manicures like this – I need to mix and match more, instead of just sampling single polishes!

Tealing Power

Sinful Colors “Tealing Power” has been kicking about my nail polish cabinet for several years…but I felt like blue fingernails, so it got lucky.

“Tealing Power” is a teal (obviously) sparkle shimmer. I don’t know what that means – I just made it up. The shimmery polish isn’t really a glitter, but there are specks of something in the polish that give it a 3-dimensional stone-like feel.

This is two coats of “Tealing Power” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat.

Target Beauty Capsule – Pampered Nails

The other Target Beauty Capsule that I ordered is the Pampered Nails Set. No shock there, I am a little obsessed with my nails.

Obviously, I won’t be using the KISS Gel Fantasy Nails – they’ll be gifted to anyone who wants them. I also already have a bottle of Sinful Colors “Low-Key Lavender”, which will also be gifted.

I will use everything else in this box: OLLY Undeniable Beauty Vitamins; Dr. Scholl’s Ultra Hydrating Foot Mask; Essie Expressie Quick-Dry Nail Polish in “Crave the Chaos”; BeLoved Cherry Blossom Hand Cream in “Blossom”; Up&Up Premium Cotton Rounds; Japonesque Essential 4-Way Nail Buffer; Up&Up Strengthening Nail Polish Remover; and a Manicure Set (great for purse or travel).

Another $5 off $15 coupon that must be used in-store. Ugh.

The Pampered Nails Target Beauty Capsule is $14.99 and still available! Use your Target Red Card for 5% off.

Candy Apple

There’s nothing like Xmas in July!

Sinful Colors “Candy Apple” is a glittery red jelly topper from a few Xmases ago. The jelly is red and the big glitter is red, but there’s also gold microglitter shimmer. It’s really pretty.

This is two coats of “Candy Apple” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat…except for the ring finger, which of course got the matte treatment with Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat.

Colada Mama

Sinful Colors “Colada Mama” is part of the newest Saweetie Collaboration – “Vacation Vibes”. I’ve only found a few of these in the wild (HEB)…but I keep on looking.

A Pina Colada is certainly NOT baby poop orangey brown like this nail polish. Pineapples aren’t really this color – inside or out? Maybe part of the skin? “Colada Mama” would make a great UT polish though.

This is two coats over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

Mushy Gushy Mango

I may or may not have posted recently that I hate “mango anything.” That may not be exactly true, because I DO like this nail polish!

This is Sinful Colors “Mushy Gushy Mango” from their newest collaboration with Saweetie. (I have no idea who Saweetie is – I had to google her.) I threw it into my cart after noticing it during an HEB run.

Although it’s a rather sheer polish, I got nearly full coverage in two coats. This is two coats over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

“Mushy Gushy Mango” may replace “Hang Ten, Brah” as my favorite mango/queso polish!
