SinfulColors New Shades 2017

I know these are old news but I just found them a few weeks ago and had to swatch them! I'll edit some comparisons in later because I plan to show Taupe Is Dope to So Daupe, Cash Out to Apeasing, and Deep End to Bluz Cruz in a swatch video, so the photos for that will be added here once that is up.

These are in the group of SinfulColors that are not available in US drugstores. Walgreens and Rite Aid will not have these on display nor carry this collection, just as they did with some of the Christmas polishes from last year. These are found in department stores like Walmart, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and some grocery stores such as Kroger or Harris Teeter. I personally found these at Harris Teeter.

Bluz Cruz is a gorgeous blue/purple, "blurple," with an amazing formula. 2 super easy coats but you could have just used 1! It glides on and dries to a gloss finish. I also try to get color accurate photos but this is actually more purple toned in person. It doesn't look purple, it just has a drop or two of purple tint in it which isn't showing in the photo.

Cash Out is a light pistachio green. When compared to Apeasing, they are not the same tone, but they are both in the same color range. Apeasing looks more mint whereas Cash Out is more of a true pistachio. 2 coats, fantastic formula, and dries to a glossy finish.

Taupe Is Dope! Is a gray taupe. I don't know what's up with this one. So Daupe! is basically the exact same shade, or at least in my case in is. When compared, So Daupe is maybe one or two shades darker but the difference is barely noticeable, if at all. It's pretty weird that they included basic dupes in similar collections. The Walgreens exclusive shades are still part of the New Shades For 2017 collection, so to have both of these part of it is just odd to me. Even the bar code numbers are one number apart. Coincidence?! I think not.
Taupe Is Dope's # is 2189 and So Daupe's is 2198. Really, SinfulColors?

Formula was great! 2 coats, dries to a glossy finish. All of these polishes had great formulas.

The Full Monte is probably my favorite in this mini collection and you can see why! It's a lovely pink toned nude with glass like shimmer flakes going throughout it. Definitely a beautiful soft look that instantly makes me think of ballet slippers. Because it is sheer, this took 3 coats. I love the look of this! Also, this look may have inspired one of the spring collections from Sinful for this year, the Desert Divas collection, which features the Stoned Crystal Shimmers you've probably seen by now (though that inspiration may just be my speculation). However, I can't find to own all of those!

Did you pick up any of these? Which is your favorite? I'll have a swatch video up of these eventually. School/work has caused a lot of delays in my YouTube schedule. Plus, I wanted to get full collections before recording videos since no one wants to see 1 or 2, they want to see all of them.
