SILK + SATIN A New Demi-Matte Collection for Summer

Slip into summer with this sinfully luxurious new nail polish collection from SinfulColors. This NEW demi-matte silk texture in summer brights is a must have fashion accessory. In rich matte shades and lustrous textures, they're guaranteed to add a little sunshine to your summer style. The SinfulColors Silk + Satin collection features sultry blues, pale banana yellow, fruity coral, even soft silver. And, for a glamorous twist, add SinfulColors Clear Topcoat on tips, or in creative designs to add a satin shine to these stunning silk

The six silky hues from the Silk + Satin SinfulColors collection clearly indicates a bright summer forecast ahead.

Matte About Blue: A matte-nificent cornflower
Pipaya: A soft flash of coral 
Prime Purple: A delicate dose of lilac 
Real Teal: A quiet mermaid green 
Silver Solution: A gentle, shimmering silver 
Solar Flux: A subtle touch of yellow

Today I have swatches of Pipaya,  Prime Purple,  and Real Teal for you. 

Up first,  Pipaya: 

Described as "a soft flash of coral", there is nothing "soft" about this gorgeous,  summery shade!  It is a very vibrant deep red based coral. The consistency is slightly thin but not so thin that it is difficult to work with.  It is a little jelly-like,  and a little sheer with one coat.  It dries fairly quickly to a satiny,  semi-matte finish. This is a perfect "beach or pool" color for summer and is one of my favorites of those in this post.  Here it is pictured at two coats without topcoat,  outdoors in natural overcast lighting without flash. 

Next,  Prime Purple: "A delicate dose of lilac" describes this shade perfectly.  Y'all know how I love my purples,  lilac being among my favorite shades (and my favorite flowers! ) so I am completely in love with this one!  It is similar to Pipaya in texture and consistency,  though it is a bit more sheer.  I found this one needed three coats for optimal coverage as it was a little bit streaky as well. Here it is pictured at three coats without topcoat,  outdoors in natural overcast lighting without flash. 

Real Teal: The description of "Quiet mermaid green" is again perfect for this color,  in my opinion.  Similar to Pipaya and Prime Purple in texture and consistency,  this one is also fairly sheer and somewhat jelly-like. The addition of shimmer gives this shade some added depth and interest and leaves it with a more silky looking finish. While greens are not normally among my favorite nail polish hues I find I am really very pleased with this one and it is another of my favorites from the colors shown in this post. Here it is pictured at two coats which I found ideal though still just slightly sheer,  a third coat will provide full opacity if it is preferred. It is shown without topcoat and outdoors in natural overcast,  partly sunny lighting without flash.

FULL THROTTLE Racy Shades for Summer

Pedal to the medal nail polish ranks big this summer. Think racy shades in rubberized textures. SinfulColors introduces its Full Throttle collection this summer with a starting lineup of five smoking hot hues that'll put your nails into overdrive. The ramped-up texturized shades range from radiant red to a powerful punch of purple to fiery orange.

Here, these five race-iest colors are guaranteed to make you look like a champion, on and off the tracks! 

Rain Rubber: A brilliant burnout blue 
Burn Rubber: A fiery-fueled orange 
Race Rubber: A powerful punch of purple 
Rubber Ball: A passionate pit stop pink 
Red Tired: A racy, radiant red

From this collection I have swatches of Rain Rubber,  Rubber Ball,  and Red Tired today. 

Rain Rubber: This is a pretty deep sky blue. It initiallyblooks like a standard creme on application but as it begins to dry the rubberized texture becomes noticeable. I found the formula to be a little sheer and there was some streaking at one coat, so a second coat was needed to even things out.  The formula is a little thick and it dries quickly which contributed to the streaking.  If you can be quick enough it is easily good to go at just one coat.  Here it is pictured at two coats without topcoat,  outdoors in natural overcast, partly sunny lighting without flash. 

Rubber Ball: This is a summer-standard hot pink hue. Similar to Rain Rubber in consistency and texture but I found this one thinner, almost too thin. It dried a little slower so it was easier to work with in terms of having some time to work with it before it started to set,  so there were no issues with streaking.  Here it is pictured at one coat without topcoat,  outdoors in natural overcast, partly sunny lighting without flash. 

Red Tired: Lastly is this almost neon bright red.  The consistency is between that of Rain Rubber and Rubber ball,  making it a pretty ideal formula to work with.  It applied easily and was good to go with just one coat.  This is another of my favorites from the shades in this post - who doesn't love a great,  bright red polish?  Here it is pictured at one coat without topcoat,  outdoors in natural overcast,  partly sunny lighting without flash. 

I am a little undecided how I feel about the rubberized texture of the Full Throttle collection.  They are fairly smooth to the touch,  just a slightbgrittiness almost like a fine grit sandpaper.  I feel like the texture is most easily noticed visually in Rain Rubber while Rubber Ball and Red Tired require a slightly closer look to really see the texture. I love the red so much,  especially,  there is a good chance the finish will grow on me.
