Bad as in sinful…. but only if you’re talking about nail polish.
Presenting Color Club’s fall collection, Seven Deadly Sins. On CC’s web site, we find this dagger-clawed vixen:
Color Club shows these pictures as inspiration for the collection, but note there are only six, so one sin got shortchanged.
The short description reads, “Color Club® Seven Deadly Sins contains 7 matte, textured glitters. Each of the deep, sexy hues was created to bring out the bad girl in all of us. Being sinful never seemed so glamorous.“
Ooh, matte textures! Just when I think I’ve tired of this fad/fashion, I see some new shades I’d like. (Click on the picture for a larger view.)
And now let’s look at them up close and sinfully personal.
Friends with Benefits
Under Your Spell
You’re So Vain
Wow, I think I’d love to have the fall-looking Indulge Me and Fierce. And Dirty Money. And You’re So Vain.
These are $8.50 each directly from Color Club, but one of my favorite e-tailers, Head2ToeBeauty, has them for $3.25 each, not counting shipping & handling.
So what are the real seven deadly sins? You may have seen the Brad Pitt/Morgan Freeman/Kevin Spacey movie “Se7en” from 1995, which uses the sins as a theme. Creeeeeeepy. Not for the faint of heart.
The big seven are:
I’d match them up with the polishes this way:
- Lust — Friends with Benefits
- Gluttony — Indulge Me
- Greed — Dirty Money
- Sloth — Under Your Spell (this one is a reach)
- Wrath — Fierce
- Envy — Obsessed
- Pride — You’re So Vain
What do you think of these colors? Do you Lust after them and feel perhaps a bit of Greed? I do, and normally I’m nothing but Sloth. ;-)
Edit: Found some lovely swatches of four of the colors, the ones that are included in a mini-kit: Under Your Spell, You’re So Vain, Dirty Money, and Friends with Benefits. Look here at LiveLoveGlittr !
Also, Veni Vidi Varnished (love that blog name!) has four colors too, but not the mini-kit. She shows Dirty Money and Friends with Benefits as well, but also shows the GORGEOUS Fierce and Indulge Me. Now I want those latter two more than ever. They’re great matte but magical with the clear top coat.
