Holiday Selections from SinfulColors

*PRESS SAMPLES*

I have some holiday pretties from SinfulColors to share with you today!  To the best of my knowledge, none of these four are new releases but they are all currently available at Walgreens for Holiday 2014.  Here's a peek:
From left to right, two coats each: Cinderella, Ice Blue, Gold Medal, Let's Talk

As I said, I used two coats of each color.  My favorite of the four is Cinderella, a beautiful sky blue with pinkish shimmer.  I also liked Let's Talk, a pretty deep blue-leaning purple.  Gold Medal was nice enough but left visible brush strokes (bummer).  Sadly, the color I was most excited about, Ice Blue, was the biggest disappointment.  It's beautiful but soooo sheer.  Two coats, clearly, was not nearly enough for opacity.  This might work better as a layering polish, maybe over black?  I think that's how I'll try it next.

These polishes retail for $1.99 each and are available at Walgreens.

Zoya MatteVelvet Collection

*PRESS SAMPLE*

Today I'd like to share the limited edition re-release of Zoya's MatteVelvet collection. It is comprised of six shades just perfect for the upcoming holiday season. Here's a peek!
Two coats each of Dovima (on all but ring finger) and Loredana (on ring finger)

Two coats each of Harlow (all but ring finger) and Savita (on ring finger)

Two coats each of Veruschka (index finger), Harlow (middle), Dovima (ring) and Posh (pinky)

These matte polishes (designed to be worn without base or top coat) applied like a dream, opaque and lovely in two easy coats. They also dried quite quickly, also a plus. Loredana is a bit unique in that it has a bit of shimmer to its finish but all six of these shades are winners to me. Matte polishes are notorious for chipping quickly so I was happily surprised to go about three days before I had serious chipping.  

You may find these polishes on the Zoya website HERE. They sell for $9.00 each.
