SinfulColors Leap Flog and Zoya Evvie Comparison

I know when I'm thinking of getting a new polish one of the first things I do is check online for comparisons to see if it's different enough from one that I might already have to warrant getting the new one. OK, it usually is, but I still like to see comparisons, don't you? When SinfulColors came out with its Study in Style collection earlier this summer, Leap Flog was the only new color — one of the grayed-out greens that are so popular right now. I read that it was a dupe for Revlon After Party and since they were both available to compare at Walgreens I could see that they were close enough that I didn't need both. Leap Flog was part of the 99¢ sale at the time, so no contest! But how does it compare to Zoya Evvie? Let's see...
Decisions, decisions...
Erin already reviewed Zoya Evvie last month so I won't review it again, but I thought I'd do a side-by-side with Leap Flog so you could decide for yourself if you need both. As you can see, Evvie is a bit darker but it's still the same hue, just with a little more black to it. Seeing them next to each other I'm drawn to Leap Flog more, but on their own it's a difficult decision. I definitely need both!

SinfulColors Leap Flog
The formula for Leap Flog was a bit thinner than other Sinfuls, although it evened out quickly and could easily be a one-coater, but I decided to put on a second coat to see if it made any difference. It didn't, so not only is it a one-coater, it dries super shiny so you don't even need a top coat unless you're in a hurry and want to use a quick-dry.
Label shot for the number.
Formula-wise it was also a draw with Evvie. The pigmentation is strong enough on both that you could get away with a single coat, and they dried shiny enough to need no top coat. The photo at the beginning shows two coats each with no top coat. Adding the second coat made no difference in the appearance at all so it's a matter of personal preference if you want to do two. I didn't notice any staining either so you might even be able to go without a base coat (but I never do...)
Zoya Evvie is on the pinky and middle fingers. Close, but not the same!
Do you need them both? Hard to say; if I had to choose only one I'd probably go with Leap Flog, but only because it was 99¢ (or $1.99 when it's not on sale) as opposed to $8 for Evvie, and it's more widely available. SinfulColors are available at Rite Aid, Walgreens, and some Targets, but not all of them carry all the colors. I'm not sure if Leap Flog will become part of their core line, so if you see it near you I'd get it while you can. It's one of those trending colors you're not going to want to miss out on!

I've only seen Zoyas at Ulta, but if you don't have one of those near you, you can always find them on the Zoya web site. I tend to wait for a coupon to get them at Ulta, and with an account at the Zoya web site you can often find a deal.

  1. Excellent timing! I just recently purchased Leap Flog, but while perusing the Zoya site for polishes to snag during their sale, Evvie really caught my eye. I hate ordering online only for them to arrive at my house and discover I already have X amount of the same color, so this was incredibly helpful :D

    1. Glad I could be of service! I know I always find comparisons to be extremely helpful myself.
