SinfulShine Picante

SinfulShine Picante coverAlmost a year ago the makers of SinfulColors polishes released a new line of polishes called SinfulShine. The SinfulShine polishes are formulated with what they are calling “Gel Tech.” The Gel Tech technology formula is supposed to provide “opulent, rich color” that dries to a brilliant shine finish.

I spotted the display for the SinfulShine line way back in June but I was determined to wait for a sale to pick up a polish to try. Last month Walgreens had one of their $.99 SinfulColors sales and unlike previously, this time it included the SinfulShine polishes (which generally retail for $2.99). I hauled a few polishes including Picante (as well as Starry Night which I already reviewed).

Picante is an orange leaning coral with the slightest bit of shimmer. The shimmer really isn’t noticeable except for in direct sunlight but it does serve a purpose giving this polish a bit of a glow.

The formula of this polish is amazing. I used two coats in my swatches and as promised, Picante dries to a super shiny finish. I also find this polish wears very well. It’s become my go to springtime pedicure polish!

I’m quite impressed by this polish. I can’t wait to try some other colors!

The SinfulShine line is exclusive to Walgreens. But no worries if you don’t live near a Walgreens, the line is available on

There are swatches under the jump!

    It’s funny that even though I have the right skin tone for bright orangey polish, it’s my least favorite color for nail polish… reminds me of a life-vest, LOL. I do have one bright tangerine polish that I like, but it’s so loaded with gold shimmer that the shimmer knocks down some of the orangey-ness. You wear it well, though!

      I think we all have colors that for one reason or another we just can’t bring ourselves to wear! Funny how humans work 🙂

      And thank you!

    Alli, I bought one of the Sinful Shine with Gel Tech polishes, but I’m wondering if I need a special base/top coat with it?

      no special base or top coat needed!

What do you think?
