Twisted Toffee

In my experience, toffee isn’t quite this orange…but I’ll allow it.

Sinful Colors “Twisted Toffee” is the other new Halloween “Candy-Inspired Spooky Polish”. It seems more caramel-y than toffee, but I’ll eat either.

Like its sister “Sour Apple Killer”, “Twisted Toffee” has an abundance of glitter – no fishing!

This is three coats of “Twisted Toffee” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

Mrs. Mucus

Doesn’t the base of this polish remind you of Mrs. Mucus? That rude bitch who lives inside of your nose…

I wasn’t planning on getting this year’s Halloween collection…but…there it was in Walmart, just begging to go home with me. This is Sinful Colors “Sour Apple Killer”, a “candy-inspired” polish. I admit, it does quite look like a melted Jolly Rancher, even down to the little air bubbles.

Remember the ant-spider-baby-skulls? They’re back! And it appears that either the polish is a new and improved formula OR they put a fuck-ton more glitters into the bottle. Either way, I had no problem fishing them out of the bottle.

This is three coats of “Sour Apple Killer” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

Macaroni in a Pot

Macaroni in a pot…that’s some wet ass polish.

I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist. Please forgive me.

This nail that is so reminiscent of the neon orange cheese powder in a box of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, is Sinful Colors Quick Bliss “Hit the Spot”. I was expecting to hate this on my nails, but it actually looked really nice. It was so bright, I kept surprising myself, doing double takes whenever I’d catch sight of them walking by the bathroom mirror.

This is two coats of “Hit the Spot” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

I bet this would look even more like Macaroni & Cheese powder with a matte top coat…hmmmm…

Energetic Snake

Fresh off “Witchy Snake”, I couldn’t wait to try the other Bebe Rexha Snake-like Top Coat. Check out Sinful Colors “SSS Sparkle”.

I wanted a bright primary color that would pop against the gold, so I started with a single coat of Sinful Colors “Energetic Red” over Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Top Coat. I then topped all of my fingers, except the ring fingers, with “SSS Sparkle”. I finished the job with Glisten & Glow Top Coat.

I wasn’t expecting the glitter crackle to dissipate so much – it crackles, but also shrank onto the nail, leaving bigger crackles than her black sister.

I really liked the orange leaning “Energetic Red” – it’s still on my toes!

Witchy Snake

I found them! I found the new Bebe Rexha “snake-like top coats” at HEB. Girl, you cannot fool me, those are crackle top coats!

Surprisingly, I don’t own a black crackle, so I was happy to get a pure black crackle in Sinful Colors “Snake it Happen”. (I do have a black with silver glitter, but that DOES NOT COUNT.) There’s also a gold glitter, which you’ll get to see soon.

I finished off my bottle of Glisten & Glow Base Coat and threw away the bottle. It was okay, but I much prefer the Ridge Filling version. I started with one coat of Sinful Colors “Witch’s Brew”, a neon green. I should’ve done more than one coat, because as soon as “Snake it Happen” hit it, the green almost disappeared! Why??? Even though the green nearly disappeared, “Snake it Happen” crackled beautifully.

I finished with Glisten & Glow Top Coat, except for Sinful Colors Radical Matte Top Coat on my ring finger. The main difference is that the matte top coat is snug to the polish and leaves ridges you can feel, whereas the glossy coat is super smooth.

Sinful Station

Is there is a Dollar Tree in the same parking lot as the Honky Bucket I’m eating lunch at, I’m gonna find an excuse to drop in and search for Sinful Colors, even if it’s all the way in College Station.

This particular location had a decent selection of Sinful Colors…except for the fact that almost all of the packages contained “Energetic Red”. I picked a package that paired “Energetic Red” with SinfulShine “Guilty Pleasures”.

I also found a package with rather new polishes – “Witch’s Brew” from last Halloween’s Bebe Rexha “Wicked Neons” collaboration. It’s a blacklight reactive neon green. The package also had the Radical Matte Top Coat. I already have several matte top coats, but what’s one more?

Prosecco

I don’t actually drink Prosecco – almost all wine products give me an immediate headache and throat inflammation to boot. If only I could be one of those “wine moms”…

Sinful Colors SinfulShine “Prosecco” is one of the most popular shades from the core collection, and I can see why. It’s a beautiful taupe-y greige with a gold, bubble-like shimmer. It’s a great polish for vacation, as it’s neutral enough to hide chips.

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

+

Galaxy

Sinful Colors SinfulShine “Galaxy” really does look like the nighttime sky. It’s a midnight blue base, with silver shimmer.

This is two coats of “Galaxy” over Glisten & Glow Base Coat and under Glisten & Glow Top Coat. The formula is silky smooth and applied like a dream. I highly recommend.

I did my toes, too – perfect for a lazy weekend in the pool.

Hella Bright

I was NOT expecting the peach shimmer peaking through the purple polish in Sinful Colors “Hella Bright” – surprise!

How have I missed trying out this polish from last year’s Neon Collection? It’s stunning.

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

You’ll notice that I stubified my nails and cut them all fairly short. A few of the longer nails were getting sharp, so I just went ahead and cut them all to match. I feel really self-conscious of how short they are…

+

Clay Me

Sinful Colors “Clay Me” reminds me of terra cotta pottery, but shimmery. The sticker says “Stoned Crystal Shimmer”, but it’s from the 2017 “Desert Diva” Collection. It was another cheap Dollar Tree find…

This is a THICK polish – this is two coats, but I could’ve gotten away with just one. I started with Glisten & Glow Ridge Filling Base Coat.

I had a hunch that this polish would look better with a matte top coat, so I used Glisten & Glow Matte Top Coat on all of my nails, except the pinky. It’s not bad looking shiny – the regular Glisten & Glow Top Coat makes it look like wet pottery!
