Yep, I swatched every last Sinful polish that I own (standby for obscenely PIC HEAVY post)




Unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard that Sinful Colors polishes are on sale this week for $.99 a pop at Walgreens. As such, I thought it would be appropriate to swatch my entire 50 bottle Sinful collection. What's the sense in having a massive polish collection if you don't use it for the good of other penny-pinching lacquerheads out there perusing the interwebz trying to figure out exactly which Sinfuls to haul? I'm just doing my duty here people, no need to thank me.

I apologize that these swatches are on nail wheels and not actual living finger tips...I'm sure you can imagine the hours of difficulty involved in trying to swatch such a redonk amount of colors on real hands. Me, my family and my cuticles thank you for your understanding.

OK, on to the swatches (all are sans topcoat):

  5. Just FYI, your pics don't show the Green Ocean swatch. I can see the corner of it just to the right of Irish Green and to the left of Cinderella, but it's not actually *in* any of the pics. Just in case some of your readers might want to see it. I've got that one, so I know what it looks like, but a lot of the rest of these swatches will be IMMENSELY useful, so THANKS! :)
