How Bloggers Influence Me: SinfulColors SinfulShine Yours Truly

Hey everybody!  I hope you're doing well.  I gave this post its name because there were two different blogs that influenced me to purchase today's polish.  Yun at The Polish Hideout was featuring some of the Tink Collection by Nicole by OPI last week, and I knew I HAD to have that pink one.  In the meantime, Karen at Frazzle and Aniploish did a review of some of the new SinfulShine polishes.  I thought, "Hmmm, I really like that last green one..."

I went down to Walgreens, after checking Yun's post *one more time* to make sure the Tinks were, in fact, a Walgreens exclusive.  Well...no Tink Collection in the building.  Pooh. But they did have a wonderful selection of the SinfulShine polishes...

I compromised and got a deliciously girly pink by SinfulShine, Yours Truly.


 And I have to tell you that the actual name of this polish is Your's Truly...but you all know I'm not going to give any airtime to badly used apostrophes, right?  Good. :)  I have been wanting a full-coverage, feminine, slightly bubblegum pink creme, and Yours Truly fit the bill perfectly.



SinfulShine polishes contain a polymer they call "Gel Tech", which is supposed to give the glossy shine of acrylic UV gel.  I don't know how it compares to a gel polish, because I've never used it, but this polish is very glossy.  It has a good application, and I used 3 coats just to try to cover up that ever-present visible nail line.  However, the glossy shine did dull a bit after 24 hours, which in my opinion isn't bad, considering the way polishes behave on me.  And these photos were taken after 24 hours.  The tip wear you see is half of what I usually have after a day.



I have never had a SinfulColors polish before now.  I guess I always figured at $1.99 (or $1.98 at Low Price Leader Wal-Mart! :D), they couldn't possibly be any good.  I also don't care for the word "sinful" in the name.  I mean...there's enough sin and depravity in the world without my nails traveling down the road to perdition as well.  Anyway...the SinfulShine line retails for $2.99 each.  I like Yours Truly so much that I wish I'd picked up a couple more.  The entire collection is 32 colors!!



Have you tried any SinfulShine polishes yet?  And most importantly...have you entered my Warm and Fuzzy Indie-tastic Giveaway??  

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)

  1. Well, you're one up on me. I'm not sure I could have purchased that polish with that glaring of a grammar error! I haven't tried the SinfulShine line but I have many from Sinful Colors.

    BTW, still chuckling about nails being on the road to perdition!

  2. I really like Sinful Colors polishes! I have thought about trying the SinfulShine polishes, but the cashier at Walgreens said they were really thick and took forever to dry. I listened to her advice because I'm rather impatient. ;) I like this polish a lot! It's a shame they made such a huge grammar error.

    1. This one wasn't thick, but it did take a while to dry...but I really think it's because of the humidity here. Everything takes forever to dry! I was pleasantly surprised with how pretty this is...but that apostrophe...oh my...

  5. Hi Melissa, so glad to have you back here - missed ya!!! But then I hope you had a wonderful break :-)!!! As to Yours Truly: what a pretty pink - it looks perfect on you!!! And tipwear? I had to scroll back and heft my eyeball to the screen - this is really minimal and hardly noticeable with this kind of pink. As for being tempted: haha and this from the lady who tempted me so often!!! But I so know what you mean when talking about Yun's Blog - she did that so often to me. I will have to check-out the other Blog as well. I love my few Sinful Colors - they are unavailable here in Switzerland but luckily I work in a heavy travel Environment and I can ask my colleagues every so often to bring back some polish for me - LOL!!! Take care xxx

  7. So many times have I considered making a Stuff Other Bloggers Made Me Buy a permanent feature, lol. And I love that you went in to WG for one thing but left with another because you can't just walk out empty-handed, now, can ya? ;D I've been meaning to trek over to WG and check out these Gel Shine colors, you just may be that last push I need... I do have the day off and should probably spend it doing something other than commenting on polish blogs... something like buying MOAR NAIL POLISH. This is a RULLY pretty pink on you and I like the bracelet a lot :)

    1. LOLOL...it's a necklace, and I had a fit getting it to behave! :/ You're right...I couldn't walk out empty-handed...but you ought to try these. I think you will really be impressed. Their staying power is great. I'm so glad you had this idea too!! I'm always trying to come up with interesting ideas...I'm currently considering "My All-Time Worst Colors Week."

  8. Thanks for the sweet shout-out, Melissa! Poooo, I hate when you love a polish and then you go to the store and it's not there! Grr... makes me have flashbacks of trying to track down certain polishes without success. Love this light pink on you! It's sweet and lovely! <3
