SinfulColors 2015 Spring Fever Collection

You all know how SinfulColors is one of my very favorite brands (even Consumer Reports rated it a best buy!) and I particularly like it when they release a huge collection with different formulas to choose from. Right now you should be finding their Spring Fever Collection in stores, some showing a large display with all the colors and other stores breaking up the collection into smaller displays. The Walgreens near me has both in two different areas of the store so be sure to look around.

This collection is made up of 24 colors in a variety of formulas, some repromotes from previous collections and several new shades. I have for you four of the new shades and one from the core line. I'll start with the creme finishes, the new Navy I Do and Why Not, from their core line.

One coat of Navy I Do — one coat!!!
Navy I Do is my new favorite navy blue creme. It covers easily in one coat and unlike many other navy polishes, it didn't stain and was easy to clean up. I can see this as a base for a lot of nail art.

One coat of Why Not
The other creme is Why Not, a bright clear blue. Double up on your base coat with this because, surprisingly, this one does stain — but the color is worth it!

I got two of the three opalescent toppers and they are both stunners! Normally I'm not a big fan of opalescent toppers (they seem so '80s to me) but the three from this collection were so iridescent and amazing that it was difficult to choose!

One coat of Prized Plume over one coat of Why Not
SinfulColors describes Prized Plume as an "iridescent peacock-feather blue" but I see it as a bejeweled sapphire. Putting it over a medium blue like Why Not really brought out the shimmers so I couldn't wait to also try it over Navy I Do. I'm not great at nail art so I tried a simple taped triangle (which wasn't as simple to do as they make it look, BTW) and loved the result. Now I want to try stamping it!

One coat of Sheer Flight over one coat of Last Chance
The other opalescent I got was Sheer Flight and I think it's absolutely the one to get if you have to choose (fortunately the $1.99 price tag means you don't usually have to.) SinfulColors describes it as a "bejeweled emerald" but, to me, in the bottle it looks like the greens and turquoises of a peacock feather (I guess we see birds and jewels reversed, eh?) Its beauty wasn't really drawn out by any of the cremes in the collection so I tried it over one coat of Last Chance. Fortunately this stunning green creme is also in the St. Patrick's Day display so grab that one, too, while you're at it. Isn't it gorgeous!?!

It reminded me of Hey Jude, so I decided to do a comparison. Its not holographic but I actually think I like it better — I love it when SinfulColors dupes a higher-priced brand and nails it. You have to get this!

One coat of Ring The Belini over one coat of Energetic Red
The third topper I got is Ring The Belini from the Citrus Twist collection. They call it a metallic tangerine so I paired it with Energetic Red to bring out the bling. It really glows, doesn't it?

Spring Fever 2015
Here are all 24 colors of the Spring Fever Collection. Of the cremes, I think Navy I Do is the only new color but all of the toppers and glitters are new. So many options to mix and match!
