I hope you have a great, restful one!!! :)


In June (2014), I picked out Sinful Colors from PINCHme. If you don't know about PINCHme,

I took this from the website. They said it better than I ever could!

Thoughts: When you order the samples/products from PINCHme, you get to choose what you want in your monthly box. By the way, it's free as long as you do surveys in return. For the month of June, they had 3 or 4 color choices. I choose yellow because I've been looking for a color that doesn't blend with my hand. Yellow is a tough color for me to wear. Most look like I'm not even wearing nail polish.
Here's a closer picture of the color and it's very true!
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to OPI, the brush is thinner. I wouldn't say it's completely thin but in-between thin to medium width.
I applied Orly Calcium Shield Basecoat, 2 coats of Sinful Colors in Lets Meet, and then topped it off with Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I usually find thinner width brushes hard to use but I didn't with this one. What I did find strange is that the brush had an angular bottom. I own other Sinful Colors and they don't have the angular bottom. I'm not too sure if only this color has it or mine was a defect. I did find it hard to paint with the angular bottom but thankfully since it was yellow, the errors weren't noticeable. Secondly, the consistency is in-between thin to medium. To be honest when I first saw this nail polish, I thought it would go on sheer because of the consistency. It didn't go on sheer at all. There was a lot of color with each coat. It also went on smoothly, and there was no streaking and bubbles. Third and even though I like the color, it'll look better on darker skin individuals. It just blended with my skin tone and even my co-worker said that. Lastly and I find this the most amazing, it lasted 6 days before it started chipping! It's a lot better than a lot of expensive brands.

Pros:
* The price is cheap.
* Light to medium consistency.
* Easy to apply.
* No streaking.
* No bubbles.
* Lasted 6 days before chipping.

Cons:
* Angular bottom.
* Looks better on darker skin individuals.

Would repurchase: Yes!
