Sinful Colors Flower Power

Hey guys! It’s Friday! I’ll keep this short and sweet as I’m moving around a lot today. The traveling part of a trip is always the part I hate the most. Today’s post is on another shade from Sinful Colors. Here’s Sinful Colors Flower Power.

Sinful Colors Flower Power

Described as “baby pink speckled with white & fuchsia”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Bloomblast Glitters Collection. In terms of opacity and pigmentation, this is more pigmented than Petal Be The Day but less so than Standing Bloom Only from the same collection. This shade has pink and white glitters in 3 different sizes suspended in a milky pale pink base. The smallest sized glitters are round while the other larger sizes are hex shaped. Formula is good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

You can use a crème shade under this for greater opacity.

Sinful Colors is available at various retailers and drugstores such as Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens. They have a list of retailers up on their website here. They’re usually priced at $1.99 but you can score some for as low as $0.99 each when there is a BOGO promo or some special pricing on these.

Sinful Colors Standing Bloom Only

Hey guys! It’s the middle of the week again. I’m trying to wrap up some things like taxes and last-minute stuff before my upcoming anniversary-honeymoon trip. We delayed officially going somewhere for our honeymoon cause we had out-of-town guests to take care of for a few days after the wedding. We did go on a mini-trip last year a few months after that. We took a road trip all over a few states to see Yellowstone. I’d do that again in a heartbeat but probably not this year since we have 2 more trips lined up already. Today’s post is on a juicy shade. Here’s Sinful Colors Standing Bloom Only.

Sinful Colors Standing Bloom Only

Described as “a creamy mango with magenta flecks”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Bloomblast Glitters Collection. This is more pigmented than Petal Be The Day from the same collection. With a creamy, milky orange base, the glitters in this shade come in 3 different sizes and are orange and gold. The smallest sized glitters are round while the other larger sizes are hex shaped. It’s pretty much like Petal Be The Day but it’s just an orange creamsicle version of it that’s more opaque. Formula is nice to work with and it dried pretty fast. Shots were taken on a cloudy day. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day

Hey guys! It’s the middle of the week again. This week’s sure flying by fast for me. The weather will start changing today and we’re officially more or less in tornado season here. Temperatures will dip for a much cooler weekend. Enough of the sad news, here’s Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day.

Sinful Colors Petal Be The Day

Described as “royal blue and purple confetti”, this is one of the 3 shades from their Bloomblast Glitters Collection. I expected the base for this shade to be more milky and opaque. It’s a wee bit “clearer” than I thought but definitely not a clear base. The glitters in this shade come in 3 different sizes and are lavender and light bluish that’s more like periwinkle than anything else. The smallest sized glitters are round while the other larger sizes are hex shaped. Formula is pretty good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

I actually like this shade more than I thought I would! For a more opaque milky look, layer this over a lilac crème or even try laying on another coat or 2. It’s a buildable shade.

Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry

Hey guys! This week has been very busy. I’m looking forward to my upcoming trip that’s our honeymoon technically. I scheduled it to coincide with our first anniversary and I’m really looking forward to it! Today I have the last of the 10 new shades Finger Paints released for 2015 as part of their core line. Here’s Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry.

Finger Paints Still Life Strawberry

Still Life Strawberry is a magenta (or even fuchsia) version of Sterling Sculpture. I tend to think fuchsia is brighter and magenta leans more towards red so it’s darker. It’s a glitter shade that’s made up of magenta hex glitters in different sizes suspended in a clear base. It’s a very simple shade, but you can definitely jazz up a regular mani with this easily. Formula is good and it dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

This shade should now be available in Sally Beauty Supply stores and online for $5.49.

Finger Paints Daubigny’s Garden

The weather has warmed up quite a bit recently, but news of a cold front keeps my optimism of warmer weather at bay. This is good ‘ol Oklahoma after all. The weather can change day-to-day with 100 degrees difference in temperature. Yes, that has happened before. I imagine how the poor trees felt with that much of a swing in temperature! I’m finishing up featuring the new shades for 2015 from Finger Paints. Here’s Finger Paints Daubigny’s Garden.

Finger Paints Daubigny’s Garden

This shade is a chameleon to me. Looking at the bottle, you see this pretty blue and possibly green glitter shade. Swipe it on by itself and its true nature is revealed — a glitter shade made up of blue, green and purple iridescent hex glitters in several different sizes suspended in a slightly tinted purple base. I think this would look best over darker colored shades like blue, black and purple. It will reflect more of what you see in the bottle with those kind of shades for the base color. Formula is thicker than all of the other shades released at the same time. Shown is one with no top coat.
