SinfulColors Holiday 2014 Swatches

The colors in this collection all look stunning. As tempting as it was to opt for some of the colors that really scream "Christmas!" I chose shades that will work all year long. I love blues, silvers, reds, and golds for the holidays.

All photos in this post were taken indoors in natural indirect sunlight without flash. Colors are all shown at two coats without top coat.

Gilded: "A transparent shimmer with gold and red" - This description doesn't do this color justice, it is stunning! It starts with a sheer shimmery white base that is packed with tiny red glitter and golden flakies. Flakies! One coat is sheer enough for layering (and looks fabulous and oh so very Christmas-y over a good deep green). This color is absolutely gorgeous!

Ice Dream: "Cerulean glitter with a translucent silver base" - This is a lovely full coverage glitter. It is a clear base packed with silver microglitter and small bright blue glitter. Like "Gilded" one coat is just sheer enough to layer. At two coats, as you can see by the swatches, it is still a bit sheer. With four coats it is fully opaque on the nail. The density of the glitter makes this an ideal one to use for glitter gradients!

Twilight Twinkles: "Brilliant flakes of gold" - This one is stunning in its simplicity. It is a clear base with irregularly shaped/sized metallic gold flakes. You can brush this on normally for a very sheer coverage, or dab it on for more coverage. The shiny finish of this one is amazing and very gel-like.

Last but not least, Cinderella: "An illuminating pastel blue" - Possibly my favorite blue polish I have ever tried, this color is gorgeous! The formula was quite thick, I had to add a couple drops of thinner to make it an ideal consistency to work with. It is the perfect "baby blue" loaded with gold-pink micro flakies. Yep - more flakies in this collection! Y'all know how I love flakies!

I don't think I could pick just one favorite from these four shades. They are all fantastic.

The holiday 2014 collection from SinfulColors - a whopping 22 color collection! - is available exclusively at Walgreens for $1.99 each.
