I'm really excited to show you some polishes from the Sinful Colors Leather Luxe Collection today! I won 5 of the polishes in this collection from Tabitha's giveaway over on her blog, Lacque Enthusiasm. So thanks again, Tabitha!
To brief you on this collection, Sinful Colors describes the polishes in this collection on their display as "matte shades with patent leather accents." So yes, the polishes do dry with a matte finish. The idea of this collection is to use the top coat displayed with this collection to do things like paint lines of varying length or other designs to create a "leather accented" look. There are a total of seven polishes in this collection, but I will only be showing you the five that I have.
Today I will be swatching two of my five polishes from this collection: Leather Loose and Strapped.
So first up is Leather Loose. Leather Loose is a rich chocolate brown with a copper micro glitter. The formula was good and easy too apply. This is probably my favorite polish of the collection because it's an amazing color for fall. Below is a picture of the polish by itself with its matte finish. I used two coats.
The following picture is of Leather Loose with a top coat on top. I don't have the top coat that went with the collection, so I used one coat of Seche Vite dry-fast top coat instead. I like the way this polish looks with the matte finish, but I'm absolutely in love with the way this polish looks with a top coat on it! It's absolutely Gorgeous!
Next up is Strapped, a beautiful grassy green polish. It sort of looks like a teal color in the pictures, but it's more of a grassy green in real life. The formula for this polish was really thin and sort of runny, so I ended up having to use three coats. Although the formula wasn't the best, the grassy green color is really pretty and definitely worth it! Below is a picture of Strapped by itself, with its matte finish.
The following picture is of Strapped with one coat of Seche Vite top coat. I think both the matte and top-coated versions look really pretty! :)
So far, I'm really liking these colors! I should have part two of this collection up tomorrow.
Which of these two polishes do you guys like best? Would you want to see any of the "leather accented" designs with these polishes?
