I haven't used a lot of Sinful Colors in the past, so am not sure how this polish stacks up against the rest of the same line for application, formula, etc. The color itself is lovely, and is pretty darn near an exact dupe for Chanel Particuliere- so close, in fact, that you wouldn't need to own both. That said, I found the polish itself to be very streaky, with an almost "dry" texture, if that makes sense, and it left brush stroke streakies. I also needed 3 coats for it to be completely opaque. Any lingering streakies were solved by topping with a coat each of gelous and SH top coat. All in all- a pretty color, but I'd rather spend a little more for a polish that has a nicer application and is opaque in two coats.

Taupe-y brown color, lovely color in the bottle, but not for me.
Was surprisingly streaky when applied to my nails, and required 3 coats for opaque coverage, and required more time than other polish to dry.

I took advantage of this week's sale at Walgreens for Sinful Colors nail polish (99 cents each vs. $1.99 regular price). I literally went straight home and painted my nails. I tried this neon pink shade first, named 24/7 which ended up being really streaky. I took that off and tried Nirvana and LOVED it. It's a perfect chocolate shade with a hint of taupe. It dries matte (even says so on the bottom of the bottle), but I put glossy top coat over mine. Below are my nails with two coats of Sinful Colors' Nirvana and one coat of top coat. The polish actually dried really fast, which is great because I ALWAYS end up with "uh ohs" because I'm too impatient to let polish dry. The formula is great, and has been holding up well over the last couple of days, no chips yet! (I usually end up chipping a little since I wash my hands so often due to working in the hospital). Overall, I'd say this shade is a STEAL for 99 cents. Hurry to your local Walgreens to pick it up on sale! :)

This is such an odd color. Chocolate-y taupe that looks greenish in some lights, greyed out in others. I love it, I didn't love it when I got it but it's grown on me.
However, Sinful's formula is a bit thick and takes longer to dry than better formulas, and I find the brush a bit too narrow and stiff. I find I have to be very careful not to leave brush marks. I use Sally Hansen Mega Shine top coat over it when it's completely dry and I usually get 72 hours of wear out of it. I'm hard on my nails, your mileage may vary.
At $2 it's a bargain, but if I were to find a dupe for it, I'd buy the color for $8 in a better formula. I might want it to be a hair more on the olive toned side at that price.

Beautiful mushroom-taupe. Looks great for mani or pedi. Formula is great, very opaque. Dries reasonably fast, too. I would repurchase. I took off one point on packaging because I would prefer a wider brush.

I usually wouldn't think to pick up a mushroomy brown polish, but I decided to give Nirvana a shot -- and hey, $2. LOVE it. Nirvana's the perfect name for it too. Simultaneously casual, earthy, and even classy, and I think it would be flattering on almost every skin tone. It takes two coats for opacity, has a creamy texture, and a nice shine.

I am not totally in love with this color on me. On me, it looks like old blood clots underneath the nail bed. But on my mother, it looks amazing. She likes it but complains about the texture. I will repurchase for her.

This is my favorite color from Sinful. It is a beautiful taupe color. I think it would look nice on all skin tones. I got mine from a drug store for 1.99. The only problem i have with it is that it chips easily on me, but i most likely need a stronger top coat. But over all this is a gorgeous color.

This is one of the best polishes I own. I bought this as a cheaper alternative to OPI You Don't Know Jacques and I agree with one of the previous reviewers - it is a warmer version, which actually suits my NC35 skintone better. Sinful polishes are great overall, but I find that some of them are less opaque and have a difficult formula to work with. Luckily this one is awesome, opaque in 1-2 coats, dries rather quickly, and long lasting when used with a good base and top coat. This is such a sleek, sexy color that I'll probably wear all year round.

I have been into polishing my nails lately. I really like OPI but they are getting really expensive at 8 to 9 bucks per bottle. I stumbled upon the Sinful brand while visiting my local Walgreen's. I saw this color and the price of 1.99 and I purchased immediately. I gave myself a mani and pedi this weekend and this was my color of choice. I really love this color! It looks kind of brownish/greyish to me. I really liked the color but I have to say that I was reluctant that it would work with my skin color. Anyway, this was a good and affordable choice.

This product came out with their new (assuming) Spring collection, Polka Dots. This is the only color that I actually fell in love with from that collection. It saddens me that this is limited edition (correct me if I'm wrong)
It's a beautiful milky brown color. As always, Sinful Colors never cease to amaze me with their formulations. Two coats was just right for me.

Warmer dupe of OPI's You Don't Know Jacques and extremely similar if not identical to Essie's Hot Coco and Essie's Mink Muffs. I'm in love with brown polishes now and I was worried I'd have to keep buying You Don't Know Jacques which is rather pricy and a little cool for me. This is PERFECT. $1.99 when not on sale and only takes one coat. Gorgeous dark brown color.
