Y’all. It has been OVER A YEAR since I last did a post on a polish from SinfulColors. That is CRAZY to me!
SinfulColors is one of my favorite drugstore brands. Unfortunately, it’s not a brand that is carried at my normal CVS. So if I want to get my hands on polishes from Sinful Colors I have to make a special trip to Walgreens. Which is exactly how I ended up with this polish!
A couple of weeks ago Walgreens was having one of their $.99 SinfulColors sales. I’ve really been wanting to try the new SinfulShine line so I headed to Walgreens and while I did pick up a SinfulShine polish I of course also ended up with a couple polishes from the regular SinfulColors line. To say the lease my little mini haul was quite diverse.
Starry Night is a black jelly packed with holographic glitter and gold flecks. Think a better version of Orly Androgynie.
The formula is about as good as you can expect for a polish like this. I did need three coats to get an opaque base but each coat adds depth to the polish. While Starry Night could easily be used as a top coat the depth would be lost.
What really impresses me about this polish is how holographic the glitter is. Even in indoor lighting the holographic glitter stands out. That being said, as with all holographic glitter, it really comes out in the sun. Don’t believe me? Check out this blurrybutshowsofftheglitter picture I posted on Instagram!
There are a ton of swatches under the jump! Including a couple of pictures in sunlight
I find that Walgreens has the best SinfulColors selection. Starry Night was new to the line about a year ago but seems to have made its way into the permanent line.

Well, I can’t give you back your beloved hour of sleep… but I can give you something almost as good. Giveaway time! When I found out that Lex Cosmetics was going to retire from the nail polish game, I was pretty bummed. Lucky for you, to recover from my state of sadness, I ordered a […] Continue reading →
My relationship with China Glaze No-Chip Top Coat did not start off well. I’ve heard people talk about this top coat and believe it or not I’ve never tried a top coat from China Glaze. My curiosity got the best of me and I threw it in my shopping cart. Unless I’ve stated otherwise in […] Continue reading →
I’m not even going to lie, I was terrified to try this nail polish! All I could think about was the disaster that was Essie Belugaria. I mean, I still have nightmares that center around that nail polish, I am happy to report that Zoya did not make the same mistakes Essie did. And I […] Continue reading →
Seriously, how could ANYONE resist a nail polish and lipstick combo called Romeo & Juliet!? I realize the answer to that question is most people but I am not one of those people! This nail polish and lipstick duo is part of the JulieG and Jesse’s Girl collaboration collection The Perfect Pair. When I saw the […] Continue reading →
The other day I was going through the polishes I have to swatch when I realized they were almost all salon brand polishes. Somehow I’ve managed to be a bit out of the loop when it comes to what’s going on in the nail polish world at the drugstore. So, I headed over to drugstore.com and […] Continue reading →
Happy Mardis Gras! I’m not going to pretend that I’m super into Mardi Gras or anything but, as with most holidays, I embrace the opportunity to do a holiday appropriate manicure. For this manicure I used 2 of my favorite polishes from China Glaze; Dandy Lyin’ Around and Glitter All The Way. I used 3 […] Continue reading →
I cannot believe this is the first polish from Revlon’s Parfumerie line I have tried! Revlon released their Pafumerie line the end of 2013. Katie tried Wintermint and adored it so I’ve had my eye on the line ever since. But for one reason or another I kept passing the Parfumerie polishes. The only explanation […] Continue reading →
Press Sample Yesterday was absolutely beautiful! I couldn’t ask for a more perfect March day: sunny with highs in the 70′s! I decided to embrace the (sadly) brief warm up with the bright pink deliciousness that is Prestige Wonder Gloss Romance. I was really excited that Alli sent me this polish because Prestige is a […] Continue reading →
This is hopefully my last winter weather inspired manicure of the year! Charlotte has gotten more than her fair share of snow this winter. The last bout I was stuck in my house for a couple of days. And while I’m thankful I didn’t lose power and it was only a couple of days I […] Continue reading →
