Sinful Colors Nail Polish Swatch – Sinful Colors Glass Pink Swatch

I loaded up on some polishes during Walgreen’s 99 cent sale on Sinful Colors polishes a couple weeks ago, and I’m just now getting around to swatching them. One of my favorites is Glass Pinka very sheer pale pink with lots of pink/green microshimmer




The color is similar to Confetti’s Dreamdate, but the multi-colored microshimmer sets Glass Pink apart. It was just difficult to capture the beauty of the shimmer.






I used two coats in the above photos, and as you can see, it’s nowhere near opaque. However, layered over Wet ‘n Wild’s Sugar Coat (pics later), this is a perfect “safe for work” combo. Delicate, shimmery, and oh so pretty.

What are some of your favorite “safe for work” looks? Do you have any favorite combos for Glass Pink?

Confetti Nail Polish Swatches – Confetti Pink Paradise Swatch, Confetti First Kiss Swatch, Confetti Fashionista Swatch, Confetti The Red Carpet Swatch

I recently did a bunch of Confetti nail polish swatches and was pleased with all of the colors. It’s rare for me to swatch an entire collection without returning some afterward, so when I popped into CVS with a 25% off coupon, I decided to grab a few more. Confetti is a 3 free nail polish that retails for $1.99 and sold exclusively by CVS. According to the Confetti website, the line includes 48 colors.

From left to right: Pink Paradise, First Kiss, Fashionista, The Red Carpet


Unfortunately, I will be returning all of these polishes for reasons described below. First, Pink Paradise – a very sheer, milky pale pink – was just too sheer to create a buildable coverage. It was also terribly milky and left streaks, despite the fact I applied two coats.


Next is First Kiss. In the bottle, it looks like an amazing, bright hot pink. On the nail, it looks like pepto bismol, complete with the chalky finish and everything. The formula was terrible, and as you can see in the swatch photos, it was gloopy, bumpy, and horrible on the nail. (I didn’t want to post these pictures, but I guess reviewing polishes includes posting swatch photos of the bad and ugly.)

I’m somewhat torn about Fashionista, described as a juicy berry pink. The color is beautiful, but the formula was a little thin and watery. I also think I have many other colors like it in my collection, such as Confetti’s Not My Mother’s PinkSpoiled’s Tip Your Waitress, or Pretty in Punk.

Lastly is The Red Carpet, a true, bright red polish. I love red nail polishes, but I hated the formula. It was another thin and watery formula that was hard to work with and looked sloppy on the nail. Bleh!


What I think is interesting is that I sort of forced these additional Confetti polishes onto myself based on the fact that they’re $1.99 and the formula was pretty good according to the first batch of swatches I did. But I will be returning these. What was the last polish you returned? Why did you return it?

Confetti Nail Polish Swatch – Confetti Not My Mother’s Pink Swatch

Oh, I just can’t say no to hot pink nail polish. Not My Mother’s Pink is a hot pink creme nail polish from Confetti, a 3 free nail polish that retails for $1.99 and sold exclusively by CVS. According to the Confetti website, the line includes 48 colors.


I can usually tell how much I like a nail polish by how many pictures I took, and I took a lot this time around. I widdled down the pictures to a select few for the blog, but I did have to fight the urge to go paint my nails with this color! I used 2 coats for the pictures below.


This color is so pretty! It’s not as bright as a neon, but is still quite bright. It reminds me a lot of Spoiled‘s Pretty in Punk, so I definitely want to do a side-by-side comparison to see if they’re a dupe of each other! What are your favorite bright pinks or pink nail polishes?

Confetti Nail Polish Swatch – Confetti Too Teal to Handle Swatch

In an attempt to try more teals and blues, I grabbed this polish while shopping for some essentials at CVS. Confetti‘s Too Teal to Handle is a blue-leaning teal with a subtle, gorgeous gold shimmerConfetti is a 3 free nail polish that retails for $1.99 and sold exclusively by CVS. According to the Confetti website, the line includes 48 colors.


I didn’t noticed the shimmer until I applied the polish to the nail. Unfortunately, it’s so subtle that it was nearly impossible to capture in the photographs. The formula was super easy to work with, and it reached opacity in 2 coats.

The delicate gold shimmer in this polish enhances the beauty, making it gorgeous and perfect for summer. What are your favorite summer colors? Any NOTS (nails of the summer) to share?

Confetti Nail Polish Swatch – Confetti Lonesome Dove Swatch

Confetti is a 3 free nail polish that retails for $1.99 and sold exclusively by CVS. According to the Confetti website, the line includes 48 colors. I’ve been on the lookout for a cement grey, and Lonesome Dove is just that – a flat, cement grey. It’s gorgeous!


Like I mentioned with Belle of the Ball, cremes are pretty unforgiving, and I am working on applying them evenly and cleanly. Shown here, though, are 2 coats, which reached opacity and covered well.


Just looking at these photos, I know that grey is going to be my new must-have color. What are some of your favorite greys?

Confetti Nail Polish Swatch – Confetti Tasmanian Devil Swatch

Okay, I know that I have blogged about this Confetti polish before, but it’s just a fantastic glitter that it really deserves its own post. Tasmanian Devil is a clear-based polish with multi-colored, multi-sized glitterConfetti is a 3 free nail polish that retails for $1.99 and sold exclusively by CVS. According to the Confetti website, the line includes 48 colors.

Tasmanian Devil is probably my most favorite of any of my drugstore glitters, and some are calling it a dupe of Deborah Lippman’s Happy BirthdayConfetti is a 3 free nail polish that retails for $1.99 and sold exclusively by CVS. According to the Confetti website, the line includes 48 colors. I used only one coat for these pictures.

This polish is really amazing. Layered over white, and it looks like sparkly jawbreakers. Over Confetti‘s Lonesome Dove (shown below on the index and middle fingers), it reminds me of sparkly graffiti.

 Do you own this polish? Do you own Happy Birthday? Which do you prefer? What’s your favorite layering combo for Tasmanian Devil?

Confetti Nail Polish Swatches – Confetti Purple Pizzazz Swatch

I thought that super shimmers and near frosts and I didn’t get along, but I saw Confetti‘s Purple Pizzazz, which has restored my hope! It’s a pinkish lavender near foil and super shimmery polish. Confetti is a 3 free nail polish that retails for $1.99 and sold exclusively by CVS. According to the Confetti website, the line includes 48 colors.


This makes the color look a little darker than it actually is, but it does show the swirly shimmer very well!


Just looking at this photo, I want to go paint my nails this color. It’s so pretty and shimmery! Have you ever given a finish or color a second chance and have it work out?
