SinfulColors: Flirt With Hearts (partial) Collection swatches, review

Tuesday, January 27, 2015


SinfulColors has a collection that will be launched in February. Flirt With Hearts is a collection of eight exciting shades. I have four of them to share with you today.

The polishes were easy to work with and applied well. I used two coats and a top coat for each of the swatches. I love themed collections and the great thing about SinfulColors collections is that they are a nice polishes and you can afford all of them. You can have the entire collection for less than $16.

Let's take a look.

24/7 is a hot pink creme. This flirty, vibrant pink is sure to be an eye catcher. I had no applications issues.

Rise & Shine is a titillating teal creme that has a subtle shimmer. I had no issues with application. I can't wait to use this color in some bright and cheery nail art. I was concerned that it may have a tendency to stain. But it didn't leave behind any hint of color.

Sinful Colors Glam Rock, Heart and Soul, and Country Chic display found at Walgreens

Thursday, August 8, 2013

I stumbled upon an end cap display at Walgreens last week - Sinful Colors Glam Rock, Heart and Soul, and Country Chic.

There were some new shades in there along with some I have seen before! I had to grab some of the shimmery polishes. Sinful Colors is an affordable and quality polish and I love to use them for nail art. Let me show you what I snagged.

Daddy's Girl - is a gorgeous grape shade with micro glitter. This is two coats.

Springtime blues - rose nail art

Saturday, May 4, 2013


Springtime is finally making an appearance in Wyoming. The snow is almost gone except for a few drift remaining around to remind me that Mother Nature is the boss around here. The grass is turning green and the sun is shining. So of course I had to had to create some Spring nail art.

I received a couple of Color Club polishes to share with you. I used  Color Club Evolution as the base for my nail art. It is a wonderful sky blue. It did require three coats to bring it to the opacity I wanted. If I were careful I am sure I could have gotten away with two coats. It dries to a high gloss shine relatively fast.

Then I used acrylic paints to create the roses. The roses really weren't hard. Just paint a circle with some rough edges. Then using darker and lighter shades paint lines. These lines will add to the dimension of the roses. Then I used a green acrylic paint to add stems for the rosebuds and leaves around the roses. Finish with a high gloss top coat and your finished. I used the new Sinful Colors Over the Top topcoat.

Sinful Colors Sugar Rush Collection

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Sinful Colors has launched a new collection. Sugar Rush is stocked full of Spring pastels. There are eight colors in the set. I am going to share four of them with you today. The rest of the collection will be up soon so stay tuned.

I did have to use three coats of these to get to complete opacity. But otherwise the formula is great. It dries to a high gloss and the cream polishes have amazing color.

Let's move on to the swatches.

Cotton Candy - is a wonderful pastel pink. The name completely fits it as it makes me think of summer carnivals and cotton candy.

Sweet Tooth - is a glorious lilac shade.

Sugar Rush - is a wonderful pastel blue.

All of these make me think of tasty cupcakes and frosted sugar cookies. Sinful Colors is available at several retail outlets. I purchased mine at Walgreens for $1.99 each. Keep your eyes open though as Walgreens frequently has Sinful Colors on sale for .99 cents.

Stamping tips and tricks

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

I did a stamped mani today and wasn't going to post about it but several people have made comments that they have issues with stamping.

I am going to give some tips and tricks. First of all I want to emphasize that I am not an expert by any means. I have just learned some things that make it easier for me. A good friend who is now a nail tech shared a lot of these tips with me. I do like to give credit where credit is due. If it weren't for Jessica I would have given up on stamping a long time ago.

Zoya Lo with stamping
I think the one of the hardest parts of stamping is finding colors that will work well together. The colors you stamp with will be in a thin layer so the color you would normally get isn't what you will get when you stamp with it.

Apply your base color and then apply a good top coat. This is an important step and I will explain why in a minute.

Allow your nails to dry. I use Seche Vite quick dry and it speeds up the process quite a bit. 

Get your working area ready with your image plates, stamper, polishes for stamping, qtips, non-acetone remover (it's important that it is non-acetone), and a towel.

Apply the polish to the image plate and scrape off with your scraper. Roll the stamper across the image and before you roll it on your finger look at it to make sure the image transferred well. If it didn't, use a qtip and remover to clean it off your stamper and start again. If you don't you won't be happy with it. Don't take to long though. The polish is in a very thin layer and will dry quickly.

Sinful Colors and Sally Hansen Color Quick pens work well for stamping.

Roll across your nail and don't be afraid to use some pressure. Spacing is another part of stamping that is an issue. It just takes practice. 

If you are not happy with the image on your nail take a qtip and non-acetone remover and "erase" it. It will make the top coat dull. But that's okay. It's a lot better than starting over again.

They say to clean your image plate after every stamp. I don't though. I just clean it every few stamps so the polish doesn't build up in the crevice.

I use the towel to wipe off the scraper and the image plate. I keep a special towel just for that purpose. 

Apply another top coat and you are done!

What are your tips?

Happy Polishing!

Finger Paints "Color Inside the Lines" with gold accents

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Sorry it has been a while since I have updated. I have had some family emergencies.

Let me just jump to the wonderful Finger Paints color I used. Finger Paints "Color Inside the Lines" is an amazing, vibrant, gorgeous pink. The application is great. Two coats provided amazing coverage.

Then I added a gold line using Sinful Colors "Pot O Gold" Nail Art polish. The I used Essie "Cosmo's PSS Shimmer" on the tip. It is much more pretty in real life than in these photos.

The brush in the Sinful Colors "Pot O Gold" is phenomenal. It is truly a nail art brush.

Essie's "Cosmo's PSS Shimmer" is an amazing burst of gold shimmers and applies wonderfully.

OPI Hoodoo Voodoo and multi-color stamping

Monday, April 2, 2012

OPI Hoodoo Voodoo
I recently was on a work trip and I wandered to the Alco behind the hotel. I found an oldie but goodie by OPI - "Hoodoo Voodoo." 

The coverage was amazing! I could have gotten away with one coat. It went on rich and smooth and had a decent dry time.
I used this marvelous color for a base color for stamping with my Konad image plate B57.

For the stamping itself I used Sinful Colors "Why Not," "Soul Mate," and "Let's Talk." Sinful Colors is a great brand to stamp with. I stamped once on each nail with each color. I think the stamping is actually the easiest part.

I really like the way it turned out. Multicolored flowers on a rich background of Hoodoo Voodoo.

If you haven't tried stamping what are you waiting for? It just takes a little practice and adds so much depth to a manicure. It actually only takes a few minutes as it dries almost immediately.

Happy Polishing!

Spring Cherry Blossoms Manicure

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Spring is in the air. Although in Wyoming I don't anticipate it will last long. But it sure is a breath of fresh air. 

While at the post office this week I saw a poster of a wonderful stamp. It was to commemorate the Cherry Blossom Festival but I saw it as a possible manicure. I am pleased with the results.
With a computer printout of the stamp. 



I started out with a base coat of Seche Clear and then added two coats of Sinful Colors "Why Not." I love this color by itself.

Sinful Colors "Why Not"
Then I took a home made striping brush with black polish and added the trunk of the tree.

Use a "swooping motion" and add the pink for the tree shape. I used Orly "Basket Case."

The pink added to the tree
Grab a dotting tool (it can be home made too) and add lighter pink dots on top of the pink. Don't be afraid to go just outside the darker pink with the dots. I used a Color Club pink.

With lighter pink dots
Finally add your white dots and you will see the final results. To pull it together I also put dots of Orly "Basket Case" on the other nails. 

Voila! The final product.

What's your spring manicure?

Happy Polishing!

Scotch tape and dotting

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Hey there lacquer lovers.

Tonight I have a new mani for you. I wasn't going to do my nails today because I had a killer headache. Then a Tylenol miracle happened and the headache was gone. What was the first thing I wanted to do? You got it.. Paint my nails.

I started out with a base coat of Seche Vite and then applied two layers of OPI's "Manicurist of Seville." I am in awe of this color. It's a deep, rich color of red (almost a burgundy) with wonderful coverage and super shine.


Then I used scotch tape and applied Sinful Colors "Black on Black." See my post here about using scotch tape to create a unique manicure.


Then to top off the the diagonal and add a little extra "zing" I used a dotting tool and added accent dots of OPI's "Pros & Bronze." If you don't have a dotting tool that's okay. See my post here about making your own.

I love the look. How do you accent your nails?

Happy Polishing!

Sinful Colors - Soul Mate

Saturday, January 28, 2012

I was trying to learn to stamp tonight and decided to take a break. Every time I think I have it figured out I am wrong. :)

So I decided to do some swatches. I put on Sinful Colors "Soul Mate" and I like it. It is a gorgeous coral color.  My favorite Sinful Colors and maybe one of my all-time favorites is "Mint Apple". It is the color shown in my banner.

But Soul Mate is a nice color too. Sinful Colors goes on great. It does seem to get a few lines when you first apply it, but they disappear quickly.


I wish I had better lighting. But even when it's daylight here the sun is illusive in the Winter. It is Wyoming after all.
Watch for more swatches!

Scotch tape - Glittery Valentine's Day Manicure

Monday, January 23, 2012

Hello everyone, I said I would be doing a post on Scotch tape manicures so here you go.

I love glitter and I love bold colors. If someone had told me a year ago that I would know the names of these polishes I would have told them they had lost their mind.

I wanted to experiment with a Valentine's Day Manicure, although this combination may be a little more Christmasy.

I started off with a base coat from Sally Hansen. I change my colors enough that a base coat isn't really needed but I hate to stain my nails with the bright colors.

Then I applied two layers of Sinful Colors "Sugar Sugar". I love the color. Sinful Colors has a nice thin brush and applies well. But sometimes it does give me a few bubbles. But just make sure the coats are nice and thin and it eliminates that problem for the most part.

Then I used a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat. I love that stuff! It dries so fast means I can tape off my fingers relatively quickly without damaging the base layer.

Tear off enough Scotch Tape strips to do the pattern you want and stick them around your worktable. This will help you avoid smearing the polish when you move from finger to finger.

Take the Scotch Tape and apply it to the palm of your hand or the back of your hand. You just want to get a lot of the sticky adhesive off so it doesn't stick too much. Then apply the Scotch Tape leaving the area you want to accent. It doesn't have to be a stripe. It can be a straight tip, or a diagonal one -- or anything your heart desires. Use your imagination. Trust me - this is the hardest part. Trying to get the angles the same and the accent the same width is trying at times. Obviously I should have tried a little harder.

Then apply your accent color over the open area of tape. For my accent color I used Nicole by OPI "Make a Comet-ment"

Take the tape off quickly so the polish doesn't start to dry and pull off with the tape. Do the same on each finger and Voila!


You get an amazing accent without having to freehand anything. Goodness knows if I tried to freehand it would look like a kindergartner did it.
