Thanks to Influenster I recently had the opportunity to try the SinfulColors Kylie Jenner Denim & Bling polish collection.
Once I was notified that I qualified for the SinfulColors Virtual VoxBox from Influenster, I quickly headed to Walgreens to see what the collection was all about. I was was unexpectedly disappointed. When I think about a Kardashian collaborating with a company for a nail polish collection, I picture bright and bold colors. But, none of the colors in the collection really stood out to me. Does anyone remember when the Kardashian’s did a line in 2011 with Nicole by OPI? I loved those shades, I think that’s what I was expecting from Kylie’s collab with SinfulColors. I’m really picky when it comes to my nail polish, I don’t really care for shimmery colors, or glitter polishes that aren’t opaque. It was really hard for me to choose a color that I thought I would like.
The first time I went to Walgreens to find a shade, I didn’t purchase anything because nothing caught my eye. The collection has 13 different shades, each one giving off a textured matte look. In typical Kardashian fashion, just about every shade has a name that begins with a K. Shades like ‘Acid Wash’ and ‘Kameleon’ give a matte pearl look, while shades like ‘Kobalt’ and ‘Kargo’ give a matte metallic look. I ended up choosing the shade ‘Karats of Kargo’, a gold glittery color. I thought it would be an opaque glitter, but it was actually a clear polish with gold glitter.
I didn’t test the shade out until I got to the nail salon this past Saturday I was really disappointed when I realized what the actual shade was, shame on me for not doing a swatch prior to purchasing!
When the polish dried, it looked as if it were a glitter based acrylic, which I actually liked. Since its Summer and I was looking for a bright and bold look I decided to use a Julep polish in the shade’Randi’ to add a little pop to my nails. Surprisingly I was happy with the end result, and I’ve gotten several compliments.
Overall, I thought the collection was just okay… I don’t want to waste my polish so I’ll probably add it over top of a lighter color like ‘Funny Bunny’ by OPI.
Have you tried the SinfulColors Kylie Jenner Denim & Bling collection? If so, which shades are your favorite?
Until next time lovies…
