Some products are worth a splurge, but it doesn’t make any sense to snub all budget branded makeup items. In fact, although as a beauty reviewer I can pick and choose, some of my personal favorite items are from the drugstore and mass market retailers. The secret is to find products that look and perform as well as the high end ones,, but once on your person, no one can tell the difference.
When it comes to nail polish, you actually can get quality polish for under $2.00. No that’s not a typo! Sinful Colors Nail polish is available at major drug and mass market retailers like Walgreens and Target, for just $1.99 a 0.5 fl. oz. There are more than 150 colors to choose from. The secret is that once Sinful Colors is on your fingers and toes, no one will be able to tell that you didn’t spend a fortune. What I like so much about this brand is not jut the insanely cheap price, and the gorgeous colors, but the fact that they’re made in the USA, with the quality you expect from a leading nail brand, and with no damaging formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.
For Valentine’s Day, drape yourself in the shades of the Kiss & Tell collection. You can’t go wrong with any of the Sinful Colors’ romantic reds. Apply a couple of coats of ”Sugar Sugar” and you’ll get the rich color of a glistening cherry with lots of shimmer. Nothing could be more classic and sexy. “Go Go Girl” is a brighter, lighter, more sheer red without any shimmer to dis, distract from the glossy red. “Truth or Dare” is more red (the press literature calls it but on nails it’s a deep rich opaque raspberry. Deeper and more dramatic still, is “Giorgio,” a berry so deep it almost looks blackened. On perfectly shaped, short nails, it looks runway-ready.
Gold is warm and lovely, but silver is sensational, too. The past few years it is grey that has dominated the nail trends. “Tantalize” is a medium grey polish with a bit of shimmer, that reminds me of the color of high end automobiles. For all out glitz, “Queen of Beauty” is infused with enough silver glitter to light up your night. For something new and different, “Snow Me White” is a stark, opaque white polish that can be used for tips on a French manicure or in a new way, as the primary nail color. Wear this one alone, or add a tip of another color and make a statement. The polar opposite is “Black on Black,” a glamorous, glossy, opaque black that can be worn alone or, perhaps, with white tips. Black isn’t everyone’s idea of a romantic color, but worn with a big statement ring, it is completely eye-catchingly glam.
Some of these polishes will win their way into your heart and into your nail polish collection. In fact, if you purchase all of these Sinful Colors you’ll still pay less for the collection than for some of the high end nail polishes on the market. The colors last, look glossy, and won’t ship any more quickly than those “fancy” brands. Treat yourself!
