Having a Blast with SinfulColors 4th of July 2015: Swatches and Nail Art

*Press sample*

Hi loves! I'm excited because today is my Friday at work - the 4th of July weekend is upon us! :D I plan to have a little cook out tomorrow since my fiance and I both have the day off and he has to work on the 4th. And I'm also just happy for an extra day off lol. But anyway, today I have a great collection to share with you from SinfulColors that can help you to celebrate the 4th in style - on your nails, of course! <3

This 4th of July, it's all about fun, fireworks and fierce polish.  The seven dynamic hues in the SinfulColors Having A Blast collection gets you in the American spirit while looking fresh and festive whether painted on toes or tips.  Saturated red, white and blue lend a classic touch, while a glitter shade adds a zesty spark to any mani or pedi. It's the perfect way to kick off your summer festivities.

These seven explosive shades from SinfulColors will ensure you have a star-spangled holiday.

Blue By You: Pearlescent royal blue
Green Ocean: Glitter-flecked emerald
Hot Spot: Shimmering cobalt blue
Out Of This World: Perfect silver with swirls of glimmer
Ruby Ruby: A classic deep red
Snow Me White: Bright white

Star Blast-Off: Star-spangled red, white, & blue confetti

I have 6 of the 7 shades from this collection today. First, I am going to show you Ruby Ruby!

This is a lovely polish! To me, it almost had more of a jelly-ish formula, and I love red jellies! It really is a great classic red for any collection. This is 3 coats of Ruby Ruby with HK Girl topcoat.

I had a bad break halfway through swatching and had to file my nails down :( Sorry about the change in the middle of the post lol. The next polish I have for you is Hot Spot.

This is a really pretty blue shimmer! Application was a breeze. This is just 2 coats of Hot Spot with HK Girl topcoat. It's a great blue for 4th of July. It reminds me of denim jeans :)

Next up is Green Ocean.

Green Ocean is an awesome flakie that has been out for a while now but usually only pops up around St. Patrick's Day. I have heard that they are making it permanent - yay, if that's true!! It's so pretty over lots of colors, like black, dark purple, or as you can see here - blue! :) When you pair the iridescent green flakies with the blue base, it really reminds me of oceans and underwater. It's a fun topper anytime you want to add that something extra to your mani. This is one easy coat of Green Ocean over Hot Spot.

Here we have 2 coats of Out of this World, topped with 1 dabbed coat of Star Blast-off. I had some trouble with bubbles when I applied Out of this World, so I didn't get any photos of it by itself. I'm sure it was user error, but I really struggled with it so I added Star Blast-off and you couldn't really see the bubbles anymore! :) I did notice that the base for Star Blast-off is lightly tinted red. As you can see on my middle finger, which I was a bit more heavy handed with when I dragged the glitters around, (so it was more like 2 coats) and you can tell a difference in the color. Not at all a bad thing, I just didn't notice it at first! :)

This is a really fun topper for the 4th of July. I think it goes really well with Out of this World, and would actually look great over a lot of different colors. It makes for an easy 4th of July mani - just dab this on over a black or silver base and you have instant patriotic nails! :)

I really wanted to do a patriotic nail art with this collection, so I decided to try a water marble. It's never been my strong point lol but I have been improving slightly since I got those little paper Dixie cups! :) Here is what I came up with.

I started with a base of SinfulColors Ruby Ruby. I watermarbled using Ruby Ruby, Out of this World, Snow Me White, and Hot Spot. I really loved how this turned out. I wanted to go for more of a blended look instead of the usual crisp curves like petals of a flower. I think it gave this almost like a precious stone kind of look, like you know how they can be swirled inside sometimes? Especially the ring finger reminded me of that sort of thing.

The water marble was pretty, but I wanted to make it even MORE patriotic lol! So I added one coat of Star Blast-Off and it really completed the look. I topped it off with HK Girl and done. :) It was a quick and easy 4th of July look!

This is a really great collection, lots of must haves for any nail polish collector. If you are in need of a quick 4th of July mani for this weekend, this is a perfect collex to pick up because it has everything you would need. Some of these shades are re-releases, but I know Star Blast-Off is new and it's a super fun glitter topper to have on hand! :)

These polishes retail for only $1.99 a piece and can be found at Walgreen's and other local drugstores and department stores like Wal-Mart.

  1. I've picked up most of these that I did not already have.....great post, and love the marble! I probably will be pretty lazy and just do the silver + the star glitter...maybe using a sponge to try to avoid the tint of the base....
