Sinful Colors Summer 2011 Adventure Island Collection: Adventure Island

Sinful Colors Adventure Island (2 coats)

Ah, I'm so happy to be back with all of you! This past week was pretty crazy, and I hope things start to settle down soon. All it takes is a few days off to really get me excited about blogging again. I'm not going to lie, I usually spend my weekends sleeping so all that packing and heavy lifting has left me pretty exhausted. My apologies, I sound like such a whiner right now.

Remember how I was saying weeks ago that I couldn't wait to get my hands on some fall collections? Well...I haven't gotten any yet, but I hope to make an order tonight for some China Glaze, OPI, Essie, Color Club and Orly polishes. I found the Orly Mineral Fx polishes at Ulta the other day, but there is absolutely no way that I'm paying $10 for Orly polishes. 

The second to last polish I have from the Sinful Colors collection is where the collection got its name, Adventure Island. It's one of those it's-so-ugly-it's-awesome colors that comes straight from appliances from the 60s and 70s. It's got a base of green with lots of yellow tones (do I hear baby poop green?). I don't care, I think it's unique and a pretty awesome color, especially for a drugstore brand. Sinful Colors, despite ripping off OPI on a few of the colors, you still did a great job with this collection (*golf clap*). 

Again, I'm so glad to be back and thanks for sticking with me!

Love the Sinful brand. I just picked up 3 of the Adventure Island collection. I have heard there is a new collection to be released end of Aug 2011. Do you know anything about it?

Not a of this shade - but like most of the others in the Island collection that never came to my lone Rite Aide or any of the other 60 miles away drug store chains that are nearest me.

That's a very unique color!

These kinds of Lime green are difficult, because not everyone likes it. But I think it is just hot :D Adore it!

Back in the 70's that color was known as Avocado Green. Paired with "burnt orange" it was the popular color blend for the couches most of the Mom's had (flowers all over 'em). Then those folks that were really stylish had either appliances or tile in their bathrooms in the Avocado Green.
I like it in polish, though I haven't worn it yet
