Sinful Colors Sugar Rush Collection.

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  I had a pretty relaxing weekend, visiting with family and friends.  It was so nice to not have to really do anything.  The weather is starting to warm up here in So-Cal and I'm hoping to take my boys to the beach this Friday-  the perks of living in Cali :)

Today I have swatches of the Sinful Colors Sugar Rush Collection released for Spring 2013.  The collection includes eight creamy pastels that just scream Spring!



Sugar N Spice is a creamy bright pink with an extremely subtle shimmer.  The shimmer is barely apparent in the bottle as well as on the nail, but it adds a soft touch to the bright shade of pink.  The application was perfect.  Pictured is two coats to achieve opacity.



Cotton Candy is a creamy medium-light pink that has a subtle shimmer similar to the shimmer in Sugar N Spice.  It isn't too obvious, but adds that soft look to the creme.  This formula was very easy to work with.  However, it was a little streaky and took three coats to achieve opacity.  But the formula is on the thinner side; so although it is three coats, it is not thick like some polishes get with three coats.



Orange Cream is a gorgeous peach shade with the same subtle shimmer.  I love this color! It is so perfect for the warmer weather.  Application was a dream and only two coats were needed to achieve opacity.



Unicorn is a creamy pastel yellow.  The formula on this was fairly thin and resulted in streaky application.  Unicorn took three coats to achieve opacity.



Sugar Rush is a baby blue creme.  The formula was perfect on this, and it applied like butter!  Two coats were needed to achieve opacity.  When I saw this color, I instantly thought that this might be a dupe for OPI What's With The Cattitude? (a major lemming of mine).  Unfortunately, I do not own WWTC to do a swatch comparison.  However, from the swatches I have seen by others on Instagram as well as bottle shots, I would say this is fairly similar to WWTC.  But like I said, I don't own it so I cannot be completely sure.



Candy Coated is a soft lilac with hints of periwinkle and a subtle shimmer.  Application was like most of the others in this collection, only needing two coats to reach opacity.  This is another polish in the collection that triggered dupe alerts in my mind.  When I first saw Candy Coated, I was reminded of OPI You're Such a Budapest, which was released with OPI's Spring 2013 Euro Centrale Collection.



Here are bottle and swatch comparisons of Candy Coated and You're Such A Budapest.  I would say that these are fairly decent dupes of one another.  Candy coated only took two coats to reach opacity, whereas You're Such A Budapest took three.  You're Such A Budapest is a tad darker than Candy Coated and the shimmer is also a litter more apparent, but overall they are pretty similar.




Sweet Nothing is a teal creme.  I was very happy with the application on this one- nearly a one coater!  For the picture below, I used two coats only because I prefer it that way.



This color also reminded me of the Euro Central Collection from OPI, and I wanted to compare it to Can't Find My Czechbook.  Pictured is two coats of each.  Although these are somewhat similar, they are not dupes.  Sweet Nothing is more teal and Can't Find My Czechbook leans more blue.



[UPDATE]  I received many responses regarding the comparison between Sweet Nothing and OPI Can't Find My Czechbook.  This morning I wanted to take some photos outdoors to show what the comparison looks like in sunlight.  Although these two are very similar, I do not think that they are spot-on dupes.  CFMC is more blue than Sweet Nothing.  But if you are looking for a less expensive alternative for CMFC, Sweet Nothing would be a great choice if you aren't concerned about them being exactly the same.

Last, we have Sweet Tooth.  This is a gorgeous light lavender with a faint shimmer.  I love this color!  It was pretty shear with one coat, but the second coat achieved opacity.  When I looked at the bottle I thought that I might have dupes or at least similar colors in my collection, but I am delighted to say I do not!  This is definitely different than any other polish that I have in the purple family.  I like that it has pink undertones to it - it makes it unique!  Pictured is two coats.



Overall, I am very pleased with the new Sinful Colors Sugar Rush Collection.  All of the colors had easy applications and did not need any additional effort to apply.  This is a great addition to my collection, and I am definitely looking forward to the warm weather and abundance of color that Spring brings to the polish world.

What do you all think of the Sugar Rush Collection?  Which colors do you have, or which ones do you now need?

Until next time...

  2. I don't know if it's your nails or if these polishes are truly spectacular. I am really impressed with these colors. Delicate, feminine but still making a statement. I want them all! I don't usually have the best of luck with Sinful, but these look promising. Any idea on how Sweet Tooth compares to Essie's Play Date?

    1. Thank you! These polishes really are great - I was very happy with the colors and application, as well as the price! I am not 100% sure about the comparison of Sweet Tooth to Play Date because I don't own that Essie (I really need to add that one to my collection!). But by comparing it to the swatches I have seen, I would say that ST has more pink undertones than PD.
