I hope you had a great weekend! It is still unbearably hot here and I spent the weekend melting. Let me just say, summer, you were great but I’ve had enough. Roll on cooler weather.
I have the Sinful Colors – Bare necessities collection to show you today. I have had this forever and only getting around to showing you now. Apologies. I do still see these in stores so don’t fret if you want or need any of these. Pop down to your Clicks 😉
Sinful Colors – Bare
Bare is a nude-ish pinky creme with a subtle micro shimmer. This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It has a good formula and I had no problems applying it. I wasn’t sure I liked the colour very much at first. In some lights in can look a little dark but the longer I wore it the more I liked it. A really great colour to pair with a bright.
Sinful Colors – Cupids Arrow
Cupids Arrow is a very light lilac jelly. This is 3 coats with no topcoat. It applied beautifully and has a gorgeous shine to it. This is perfect for jelly sandwiches. It is a really sheer jelly but super gorgeous. Definitely a favourite for me.
Sinful Colors – Easy Going
Easy Going is my favourite by FAR! This gorgeous creamy, peachy, pinky colour applies like a dream and you just need 2 coats. This is 2 with no topcoat. I am so in love with this polish that I might wear it forever. I also used it as a base here and I am sure you will see me use it many many times in the future. It is not white. If you want me to compare it to white let me know. In. Love. I believe this is also a good alternative to Essie – Fiji (not a dupe though). I’ll say it again. I looooooove Easy Going.
Sinful Colors – Heartfelt
Heartfelt is a beautiful pink creme. I have also come to realise my camera hates pinks. That makes my heart very sore, because PINK. Anyway, heartfelt is a little brighter than it appears in the photo. This is 2 coats with no topcoat and applied beautifully. Another favourite.
Sinful Colors – Poudre
Poudre is a peachy creme. This is 2 coats with no topcoat. When I opened my bottle I noticed that it must’ve been opened a few times before and also had loads of gunky polish all around the tip and in the lid. My polish was quite thick and even though it wasn’t as great to apply as the others it was still easy to work with. I at first thought it was because my bottle had clearly not been sealed well but I have noticed a few people saying the same thing. I added a few drops of thinner and it’s perfect. So if you find it a little too thick don’t be put off. With a smidge of thinner it is gorgeous.
Sinful Colors – Social Ladder
Social Ladder is a very very light pink (almost white) packed with shimmer. I couldn’t capture the shimmer perfectly on my nails but you can see it somewhat in the bottle. It is quite sheer so this is 3 coats and I can still see some VNL. If you have cinderalla (blue) or glass pink* (pink) then this is almost the lighter / whiter version of it. I think this will be great for layering. In fact this over Easy Going might just look stunning.
Sinful Colors – Tutu
How adorable is that name? Tutu is a very light pink jelly. This is 3 coats with no topcoat and is still quite sheer. It is really gorgeous though and will be great for sandwiches. It also reminds me of Essence – Sweet as Candy. Great application with a beautiful shine.
*Glass Pink is also in the Bare Necessities display but I have seen it on the shelf for ages. I bought it quite a while ago so I did not swatch it with this collection. If you do want to see it let me know and I will do it for you as well.
What do you think of this collection? It is a whole bunch of soft, subtle and pretty. I didn’t think I would like some of them as much as I do (I’m looking at you Easy Going and Cupids Arrow). Do any of them appeal to you?
Thanks for reading!
