Vintage from Sinful Colors

Posted on

How about another budget-friendly polish from Sinful Colors?  I’m always up for those!

Here’s a new polish called Vintage.  In the store (Walgreens, SRP $1.99) and under fluorescent light, I thought Vintage was a dark gray with a green tone.  But, no, it’s a dark shimmery silver-green.

Despite the heavy shimmer, visible brushstrokes weren’t a problem.  The formula is a bit sheer and I needed three coats.  Under indirect bright outdoor light, it gives me lobster hands (makes my skin look red):

Under indoor artificial light, not so much:

Where it really sparkles — literally — is in direct sunlight.  Outdoors was too bright for my camera so I took a picture of my nails resting on a windowsill inside, but still in direct sun:

Looking through my Mountain o’ Stash, I have two polishes that are close but not identical, Rikki from Zoya and Rags to Riches from Rimmel.  Both of those are lighter and not as grayed or neutral.

I love Vintage as a darker silvery green for fall while Rags to Riches is a fave for spring.

  1. Girl! I literally just found this little gem a few weeks back at my Rite-Aid. I absolutely ADORE IT and can’t wait to wear it! Thanks for sharing:). XOXOXO

  2. I LOVE this color, all of them. LOL ❤ ❤

  3. I actually went to Walgreens today because I thought this lipstick I wanted was still on sale, but it wasn’t. Of course, I had to give a look at the Sinful Colors display. I forgot about this new color Vintage (I have Zoya Rikki anyway), but they had one I’ve wanted since you swatched it on one of your blogs, “Forget Now”. YEA Now, I have some Sinful Colors I haven’t even used yet, so time to organize those and try them out. I admit, I have a tendency to Zoya’s more, since I just love then so much.

  4. A great shade for autumn 🙂
