Kylie Jenner is a name I’m sure everyone on the face of the planet has heard of by now. No intro needs to be said about this girl. She’s everywhere! If you thought her name couldn’t possibly be anywhere else, she’s now in the nail industry. She’s teamed up with Sinful Colors to release a massive collection. It’s a 20-piece limited edition collection new in stores.
When I saw heard of the news, I knew I had to get my butt over to Walmart and grab as many as I could! I really did… I ended up buying 11 of the 20! All the polishes are part of the Sinful Shine line, meaning they all boast the claim of being a gel-like polish by providing the benefits of longer lasting polish and a gel shine. I would settle for no less either if I were to partner up with Sinful Colors!
Today I’ll be sharing half of my King Kylie haul. I thought I would split it up to make it easier on me and to get this post out to you as fast as I could!
For those not following me on Instagram (@chezadrienne), here’s a pic of my haul I posted!
First let’s look at the packaging. What makes this different is obviously the Kylie embossing all over the bottom portion of the cap. I’m glad they went for the more pleasing look of an embossed design rather than just sticking a label over it like OPI tends to do (think about how cute the Hello Kitty collection would have been if they had done this).
There’s also a “Step 1” sticker on each bottle to remind you that this is only one of two steps of this Sinful Shine system. The second step is a top coat that’ll boost the lasting power. This sticker is easy to remove, which is nice ’cause if you don’t like it and you want that Kylie design to be the center of attention, you can go ahead and peel that “Step 1” right off.
I’ve separated the polishes I got into three categories, pastels, neutrals and jewel tones. I’m going to save the jewel tones for the next post. I haven’t had as much time as I would like to swatch so that post should be coming within the week. So first, let’s start with the pastels.
Miss Chief is a cool pastel pink with blue undertones. There is some stealth shimmer in this that you may not catch at first, this was actually one I initially skipped on because I thought it was a straight up creme. When applied, the shimmer gets drowned out by the pink creme. Only at certain angles when the light hits it right do you see the light sparkle. If you like a subtle shimmer and pastel pinks, this is one for you.
The formula wasn’t the best, which is normal for such a light polish. Some nails looked opaque in 2 coats but for some, I needed a third. This dries a little dull and a touch bumpy due to the shimmer but that’s nothing a top coat won’t fix.
Miss Chief- 3 coats, w/top coat
Minty Fresh is another creme shimmer but in the bottle, it is noticeably more shimmery than Miss Chief. This is richer pastel, it’s not as toned down and more saturated with color. I can’t help but feel this mint also has the slightest dusty feel to it. When I laid down the first coat I was surprised to find it was almost fully opaque. The formula is a good thickness, very creamy, however, it was a little lumpy because of the denser shimmer. Again, let that “Step 1” sticker remind you to add a top coat to smooth out those lumps.

The next is one that stood at the display thinking over buying or leaving. Miss Majesty is a purple with iridescent blue/green shimmer. In the bottle it looked really sheer but it went on with more coverage than I thought it would. I did still end up with three coats but you really could get away with just two. When you get this on your nails, this shade is so mesmerizingly satisfying. You find yourself shifting your hand back and forth to see the pretty iridescence effect. I like it. Glad I picked it up.
If wearing it alone isn’t your cup of tea, there’s always the option of using this as a topper instead!

When I saw this, I thought it would be similar to Zoya Leslie (review) but nope. Much different. Formulas are completely different and Leslie is a much lighter pastel.
Okay. We are now moving from the pastels to the neutrals. Are you ready for the next two? I’m going to tell you now these are some of the stand outs from the collection. I LOVE these.
It’s also a bonus that it has such an adorable name, Slay Grey. Yes. This is a cement gray filled with gold shimmer. The contrast is what strikes me. The warm golden shimmer hitting this cool gray. It’s beautiful. The base is a crelly so you can build this up to a darker gray with three coats for the bottle color or just go with two coats like what I did.
Slay Grey- 2 coats, no top coat
If you’re familiar with Sinful Colors, I know what you’re thinking right now. Hold on to that thought. Let me show you the next one and I’ll share with you what I’m thinking. Hopefully we’ll be on the same page.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, here is another neutral with packed with gold shimmer. This time it’s an apricot beige named Karamel. The formula of this polish was amazing. It was nearly opaque in just one coat. The base is more of a creme than the other one. If you’re someone who applies thick coats, this’ll be a one coater for you.
On a side note, doesn’t this make you think of that trending nude top that everyone’s been wearing these days?
Karamel- 2 coats, no top coat
Now let’s get back to that thought you may have had. Don’t these two make you think of Sinful Colors Prosecco (review)? Like they could be the parents or the siblings? I am completely behind this move. I would love it if they would continue to expand the Prosecco family!

The last one in the neutral category and the last I will be sharing in this post is Kafé Latte. I guess this is supposed to be a coffee shade… Well, I guess… To me, this is more of a rosey bronze. This was a one coater but it didn’t wow me. The color isn’t as spectacular and after using the two stunners in this category, I was feeling underwhelmed with this one. You wind up with a dirty rose gold with heavy brushstrokes, I don’t hate it but I don’t love it either.
I found out after that there’s a true rose gold in this collection named Kreme de la Kreme. I may have to go back and take a look at that one… Perhaps do a comparison?

Just for a color comparison, here’s a look next to OPI Worth a Pretty Penne (review).
I’m really happy with this collection so far. I haven’t found that I’ve hated any of them. It’s also a bonus that these are different from anything I own. Let me clarify that I don’t own any in my collection that’s similar enough to put up as possible dupes but these aren’t super unique so it would’t surprise me to hear that you have seen/found dupes.
When I found out there were going to be 20 shades in all, I wasn’t sure how to respond. That’s a large amount to be putting out at one time! I kept thinking how many of these am I going to like? What if they don’t do as well as they hope it will? I should have known better than to have doubted one of my favorite brands! They have done a fantastic job and I’ve only tested the waters with these 6. There are still 5 more that I need to get swatchin’ for you!
I think for $2.98, these are a great buy! The people at Sinful Colors know what they’re doing. They are killing it with this collection and I am sure it doesn’t hurt to have someone as famous as Kylie Jenner be the face of this collection.
For now, this collection is available only at Walmart but it will be spreading to other retailers. I believe they should be in all Sinful Colors locations within the month. That means keep an eye out at Walgreens, Kmart and Rite Aid! You can even find it online here on Walmart’s website if you can’t wait to get your hands on them!
Stick around for my part II of the King Kylie for Sinful Colors collection! I can’t wait!! Slay Grey and Karamel have me excited and giddy!
