SINFUL COLORS: Hot Flash Metallics Collection Swatches

Pin It Man, I need to stop with all the late postings!

 Sinful Colors Hot Flash Metallics Collection Display (Walgreens)

Today I'm going to swatch and review a few Sinful Colors polishes from their Hot Flash Metallics Collection! I also have some dupes after the jump ;]

I grabbed 5 colors, I didn't feel like I needed the others and the purple looked WAY to frosty for my liking so... Here's are the colors I picked up!

L->R: Hot Hot Heat, Super Nova, Hot Wired, Precious Metal and Heavy Metal

Going in order - here is Hot Hot Heat:

Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat

Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat

This red is super pretty and a great red! Hot Hot Heat is a shimmery crimson red, berry color with shimmer through out. I'm so all over this shade of red for the holiday this year! Not TOO red and not TOO shimmery, perfect balance, I think. 2 coats, 0 issues! Supposedly, Hot Hot Heat is a dupe for Butter London Knees Up, I don't own the BL so here's a comparison via Pointless Cafe. HOWEVER! I DID find another dupe, check this out:

Left, Zoya Elisa and right, Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat

They didn't loo super similar in the bottle to me either.. I think it's because my Elisa needs to be mixed a bit haha. You might of saw me post this on Facebook so I could let you guys know during the sale! Here's my swatch:

Zoya Elisa VS Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat

Can you tell the difference? Because I can't... and neither could my Facebook Like-rs! Excuse the ring finger dent, whoops! Zoya Elisa is on the pinky and middle finger while Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat is on my pointer and ring finger. Pretty gosh darn close and pretty dupe-tastic if you ask me! So, if you're lemming for Zoya Elisa, Sinful Colors Hot Hot Heat would be a great substitute.

Next is Super Nova:

I think this one was the one I was most excited about. I know everyone's loving rose gold colors right now, how can you not? Super Nova is a rose gold, metallic, shimmer. Very pretty color, especially when it hits the light! 2 coats, no issues!

Next is Hot Wired,

Sinful Colors Hot Wired


Sinful Colors Hot Wired

I find Hot Wired to be a blue-toned grey, metallic, shimmer. It's not a true blue or a true grey, at least that's what I can see... when I grabbed it I thought it was a light blue bahaha! A very unique shade, I can't compare it to anything I have. This did take an additional coat in comparison to the others but, looked great after the 3rd coat. No issues here either! I keep thinking this would be good undies for Zoya FeiFei, I'll have to try it one day!

Next is Precious Metal:

Sinful Colors Precious Metal

Sinful Colors Precious Metal

THIS IS A BLUE METALLIC POLISH. Like, seriously. I LOVE this so much haha. This is a great deep blue color with awesome metallic shimmer. Like the polish above, this did take 3 coats instead of 2 but the end result was great. No issues here either, just pretty color :]

Up next is Heavy Metal:

Sinful Colors Heavy Metal

Sinful Colors Heavy Metal

This is an awesome metallic silver. I love how glitzy this look, such a fun color! I did 2 coats and I had no issues at all. I kept saying "nooo I don't need this, I never wear silver and I think I have something similar." Well, I did haha check out this, total dupe for Zoya Trixie:

Zoya Trixie, left and Sinful Colors Heavy Metal, right

Zoya Trixie VS Sinful Colors Heavy Metal

You ALSO might of saw this on my Facebook haha. I knew I wouldn't have this post done for the sale but it's still good to know! Zoya Trixie, pinky and middle and Sinful Colors Heavy Metal, pointer and ring. Yup, there ya go! A darn good dupe! So if you've been lemming after Trixie, Heavy Metal would be a good replacement too!

I got these polishes from Walgreens, their Sinful Colors are usually $1.99 but I grabbed these during a 99 cent sale! I know Rite Aid, Target and some Walmarts also carry Sinful Colors polishes.

Hope you enjoyed these metallics, I can't get enough of em! :]

Talk to you tomorrow,
