Adventure Island

Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing well :)

Monday's post included a sneak peak which was this :

With that being said, the answer to the sneak peak is Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection!
Those who guessed correct were Liz and tahillia! :D

Does anyone like the idea of the sneak peak feature? I don't know if I would continue doing this - so leave a comment on that!

Anyways, today wasn't the ideal day for swatching since it's cloudy and I think it rained, LOL I slept until 2pm so yup :X I haven't really gotten a lot of sleep lately so these days when I'm not working, I try to get as much sleep as I can. I've also been staying up a lot longer which has become "normal" and routine for me although I'd like to change that.

So here are my indoor swatches of Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection. I actually didn't see the display for these in the Rite Aid in my neighborhood but rather stashed with their regular core collection until I spotted them ~ which look awfully familiar to OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection. I don't have the OPI POTC Collection but I plan on ordering the mini collection to compare.

Adventure Island is a dusty grayed out yellow green creme. This is shown in 2 coats of Adventure Island and a layer of top coat. My mom saw me swatch this and she absolutely disliked the color but I don't think it's that bad LOL. As I continued to look at it, it looked pretty nice. 

Open Seas is a dusty light jade green creme which is shown in 2 coats and a layer of top coat. I like this color mainly because it looked similar to OPI Mermaid Tears which I have yet to get my hands on. This was my favorite polish of my purchase that I was most excited about.

Seaweed is a dusty green-gray creme with tons of gray, which is shown in 2 coats and a layer of top coat.

Star Fish is a dusty pink creme but my picture makes it look vibrant than the actual bottle color. This is shown in 2 coats. I wasn't really excited for this polish when I held the bottle in my hands at Rite Aid but after swatching it on my nails, I LOVEE it!!♥ It definitely became a favorite for me. :B

Verbena is a lightly dusty purple creme shown in 2 coats and a layer of top coat. This is also a very nice color that came out nicely and also another favorite. It makes me think of a lighter version of OPI Funky Dunkey. 

Lastly, here's a little nail art that I couldn't help but doing. You've seen this nail art a while back that I did but here's another color combination of it :)

I remember seeing people do chocolate covered strawberries which reminded me and inspired this nail art but no strawberries here.. unless it's a strawberry milkshake with chocolate/fudge syrup haha! For the chocolate I used OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys

Hope you all enjoyed and happy polishing! :)

P.S. - I just remembered it's 3 days past my blog's 2nd birthday so I'll host a giveaway but it might take me a while to gather a prize package. But do stay on the look out ;)

  5. tiffyama: Thanks! & I actually haven't heard about the collection until I saw it in Rite Aid and then I knew it was from a new collection. :P Star Fish is definitely a favorite for me from this collection!

    Iza: Open Seas was definitely my favorite that I held onto before my purchase but it came in second next to Star Fish :\. And thank you! :D

  8. Jo: Definitely agree with you :) I've seen a comparison with Mermaid Tears and they're so close it's like a dupe!
