SinfulColors Sugar Rush Collection and Comparison

I know you're probably sick of hearing about all the snow we've had here in New England, but we had no power for five days after Nemo! No heat! We lived like PIONEERS!!! Also, there was a driving ban for a while so by the time I managed to get to Walgreens some of the colors from the Sugar Rush Collection were gone. Gone! (sob) But I do think that the ones that were left were probably the only ones I would have gotten anyway, so I guess I'll live...

My favorite of the five I was able to get was Sweet Tooth, a delicious glass-flecked lilac. This is one of the most flattering colors on me so I can't help but be drawn to them! The formula was a bit thin so I had some cuticle flooding on a few nails, but overall it was fine.

Rather than showcase the rest I'm just going to show them all on one hand. What? It's winter! My cuticles are already suffering! And, yes, I do actually have a thumb, but it's so squatty that you'll understand why I don't usually show it. Sugar Rush and Sweet Nothing were cremes, but Candy CoatedSweet Tooth, and Orange Cream all had glass flecks in them to add to the appeal. Orange Creme is a bit brighter than it shows in the photo — I think my camera was metering for all the blues and the orange suffered for it.

I had also recently gotten the minis of OPI Euro Centrale, of which You're Such A BudaPest! is my favorite. It has not gone unnoticed that it appears to be very similar to Candy Coated. Let's compare, shall we?

While they are very close (but not as close as Winter Wonder and FeiFeiYou're Such A BudaPest! has a richer, slightly darker shade of lilac and a lot more glass flecks, so if you're only going to get one, that would be the one I'd recommend. However, Ulta has raised the price on OPIs to $9 now, and Walgreens has an in-store coupon for $1 off on SinfulColors this week, so Candy Coated is a better buy (even at the full $1.99 price.) They're both limited edition colors, so make your choice and hurry up!

  2. I sigh happily every time I see the Sinful Colors Sugar Rush collection. They just look like Easter eggs lined up all in a row in their little display! I love how cheerful they look! I decided not to get all the colors but I did get 3 (Sugar Rush, Sweet Tooth and Candy Coated). It looks like you got most of the collection and the yellow one was just Unicorn, so you could still find that anyway. :)

    1. I already had Unicorn from some earlier collection but haven't used it yet. Thanks for reminding me!

  3. I love periwinkles and for me these 2 are different enough to own em both - esp when I love (usually) the formula of OPI

    1. Me, too. I have the mini of BudaPest and I was thinking that would be enough since I also have Candy Coated but, nope. I need a full sized bottle!

  4. I want all 5 of those SC polishes! Too bad the Walgreens in my area rarely carry anything new when it initially comes out.

    1. Mine is often slow to get new collections, too. I wish they were consistent!
