Hey guys! Today I have a very exciting post for you. Sinful Colors has released a new collection of demi mattes (which means literally half-matte) and I have 6 of them for you today! And the most exciting part – they are available in Canada!
The demi mattes are part of the Class Act: Chalkboard Diaries, available at select retailers (more on that later) through until September. They have a beautiful creamy finish that is not quite matte. In fact I’d say it almost has a creamy-waxy finish to it. My display also had Black on Black (black cream) and Snow me White (white cream) but these are also part of the core collection and since I own these, plus back-ups, (and back-ups of my back-ups), I didn’t pick them up. For my pictures I used 3 coats no top coat.
V.I.Peach is a bright sunshine-yellow. It was the one I was most excited for in the collection – yellow is generally my least-favourite colour but I was drawn to this one. It didn’t disappoint:
Next up is Chalk It Up. I would say this is somewhere in-between a sage and a lime green. A bright sage green perhaps? I’ve seen it described as pistachio and it does remind me of that green pudding I used to eat as a child.
A-Crush is a beautiful periwinkle blue. I feel this blue lends itself very well to the demi matte finish:
Truth or Lavendare is a nice pastel purple. It was the easiest to get opaque for me. This is a perfect spring through fall shade!
The next two polishes in this collection are actually jellies. Jelly demi mattes!!!! And they are fantastic! First up is RADiant. This is a beautiful bright fuchsia. The formula was a dream on this and it dried to a flawless demi matte finish. My only complaint is that after 3 coats I can still see my nail line (strictly personal preference but it’s something I try to avoid). Otherwise it’s such a beautiful colour!!!
And I saved the best for last. Hazed is probably going into one of my top-ten polishes of all time. And that says a lot coming from someone who isn’t really drawn to the jewel-toned purples. The formula on this was so amazing I think I could have painted my nails with my eyes closed. Sheer perfection.
I purchased these at Rexall, a Canadian pharmacy. They retail for $2.99 CAD but they were on sale 2 for $5.00. We haven’t seen anything outside of the core line (and not even the complete core line) for several years, so I’m hoping that we will at least start to see some of the bigger collections (we are coming into the fall/holiday season, and in my opinion, Sinful Colors puts out THE best Halloween and Christmas collections). If you don’t have a Rexall in your neck of the woods, you can check out the Where to Buy page on their Official Site. Also keep an eye on their social media for info on new collections (Instagram/Twitter/Facebook). And I will be stalking all of the Rexall/Jean Coutou within a 50 km radius (I even cross provincial lines I’m so determined!) and I will let you know if I’m lucky enough to come across any new LE Sinful Colors collections!!
Until next time, happy painting!!!
