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.
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! :)
