Take a Pink Break

I previewed the back to school collection Class Act from SinfulColors a few weeks ago, and now it’s swatch time.  Class Act consists of three sub-sets — Play It Cool, All Nighter, and Chalkboard Diaries.  Here’s the Chalkboard Diaries display of limited time demi-mattes aka satins.

Official press release:

     Get ready to hit the books and go back to school in style with the latest collection for Back To School from SinfulColors, A Class Act. The extensive array of fresh shades are perfectly on-trend with the latest fall fashions and will ensure that your mani is top of the class. Dusty pastels and pops of color come in a demi-matte finish that feels soft yet looks striking and is deserving of nothing but straight A’s.  Denim blues and ready-to-burst brights capture an effortlessly cool and rebellious vibe, while shimmering silvers, purples and teals with eye catching 3D glitters look just as chic during a night out on the town as they do in class the next day.

We think you’ll agree that all of these 27 SinfulColors shades deserve straight A’s:

You can click that pic for a larger view.  Some of the colors are brand new and some are repromotes.

I could hardly wait to try one of the demi-mattes and started with Pink Break.  Pink Break will be a Walgreens exclusive and is a warm-toned light pink.  Its formula was a little different and once I realized that it was easy to work with, but be careful at first.  It’s like some chromes or frosts in that you can’t overwork it or keep dabbing at it, or it’ll dry patchy.  Big, even strokes with the brush, with plenty of polish on the brush was the best way to apply it in my opinion.  Two coats, no top coat, with a fill flash and then under artificial indoor light:

I feel the first photo is the more accurate representation of Pink Break’s true color.  And oops, missed a spot by my cuticle on my middle finger.

The semi-matte or satin finish is cool, but I thought I’d top Pink Break with one of the new glitters.  Night Owl — also a Walgreens exclusive — was very different than what I was expecting!  From the promo bottle shot I expected purple and blue glitter in a sheer purple base.

SC Night Owl

But Night Owl is actually an interesting mix of holographic shard glitter plus blue-green tiny bar glitter in a mostly clear base.  The formula was good but I had to fish for some of the bigger shards, and whenever I apply bar glitter I try to keep it from looking “all lined up,” if you know what I mean.  Also with the fill flash and under artificial indoor light:

Woo, party on my nails.  Would be fun over a lot of different colors, for sure.

I like both polishes a lot but think the new demi-mattes, like Pink Break, will take a little more attention during application to make them look their best.  More new colors later this week!
