Quick Review & Swatches: SinfulColors Full Throttle Collection

    I’ve been dabbling in textured polishes lately, and while I’m not sure I prefer them over a smooth, shiny finish, they definitely add some variety to my manicures. If you’re looking for some textured polishes to try on a dime, perhaps you’d enjoy the Full Throttle collection from SinfulColors for Summer 2014. These have a “rubberized” texture that looks like subtle, small dimples on the surface.

    Sneak Peak Swatches: SinfulColors Full Throttle Collection - Burn Rubber

    Burn Rubber is a safety-cone orange. It reminds me very much of an actual orange (like, the fruit) because of the bumpy texture.

    Sneak Peak Swatches: SinfulColors Full Throttle Collection - Race Rubber

    Race Rubber is a deep, bold burgundy shade. This one was a bit tricky, because the shade deepens with each layer, so you have to be pretty precise each time to get an even application.

    Sneak Peak Swatches: SinfulColors Full Throttle Collection - Rubber Ball

    Rubber Ball is a vibrant, mid-toned pink. This shade applied with full coverage in just one layer.

    I’m not sure if this texture is what I think about when I imagine “rubberized.” I think it resembles concrete more, no? Either way, the shades are vibrant and still maintain a shiny finish. I found it much more suitable to apply in thin layers, otherwise the polish has a hard time settling into the texture and drying down.

    Find these shades and the rest of the SinfulColors Full Throttle collection at Rite Aid for $1.99 each throughout July.

    What’s your favorite variation of nail polish texture?

    1. I love texturized nail polish’s concept but I have only one of this kind (totally matt).
      These look like a nice compromise as they’re still so shiny… Rubber Ball is cool and I like Burn Rubber too but it isn’t my go to colour.
      Have a nice day!!!

    2. Like others and like you said, textured polishes aren’t my favorite though in a glitter polish it’s OK. I like the orange shade. Gotta try Sinful one of these days

    3. I’m usually just a fan of the regular nail polish finish, I’ll like the textured finish of other polishes for a minute but then just want to get it off!
