SinfulColors Holiday 2013 Mirror Metallics - 4 shades - pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

The SinfulColors Holiday 2013 Mirror Metallics collection is still available, but not for long. If you're lucky enough to find these, you may be interested in picking up a few shades before the season is over. I know for me, there were two shades that really caught my eye from the four shades I have: Pine Away and Triple Platinum (I'll explain why in the review below). Check out my full review, including all the product info, after the pics!

SinfulColors Holiday 2013 Mirror Metallics Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $1.99 each (0.5 fl oz full size). Available exclusively at Walgreens (although I have spotted some SinfulColors "Walgreens exclusive" polishes in the past at Rite-Aid stores).
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Kisses!

New this season: The Mirror Metallics nail polish collection from SinfulColors features 7 sparkling shades guaranteed to steal the spotlight. Infused with sensuous shimmer, these luminous tints will light up your holiday celebration and beyond. The Mirror Metallics collection covers the color scheme from seductive purple to bold gold. Each is designed to bring a sweeping holiday spirit to all who partake in the festivities.

Available in these seven shades:
  • Pine Away: a glittery x-mas tree green
  • Red Eye: a sprinkle of crimson by candlelight
  • Purple Heart: a royal rush of rich purple
  • Gold Medal: a golden, glimmery goddess
  • Blue Steel: a brilliant blue gush of gift-wrap
  • Triple Platinum: a light shade of lilac tinted with tinsel
  • Simply Silver: a sparkling ornamental shade of silver
I have four of the seven shades, and I can say there are two that really stood out to me as "must-try's". They are Pine Away and Triple Platinum. 

Pine Away is one of the most vibrant, true "Christmas" green metallic shades I've seen. It is just really pretty in person and a gorgeous shade of green. That's saying a lot from me, considering green isn't one of my favorite colors. But Pine Away is one I'd recommend from this collection based on how special the green color was, at least in my opinion and certainly for just $1.99!

Triple Platinum is one of those gorgeous complex duo-chrome metallic shades. It's a lilac purple metallic with a golden and even platinum duo-chrome shift. The photos do not do this shade any justice!  It's really pretty and a shade I know some higher-end brands have done (or at least close to it) but at $1.99 this is truly the "special one" of the collection, if you ask me. Probably my favorite of the group and the one I'd recommend the most if you were to just get one (but get two, because you'll want Pine Away).

The other two shades I have, Gold Medal and Purple Heart, are pretty but they didn't stand out to me in teh way that Pine Away or Triple Platinum did. Gold Medal is a softer gold metallic shade. It's the gold for someone that doesn't want to be in-your-face with gold nails. It's a champagne gold; that's probably the best description I could give. Purple Heart is the most pigmented out of the four shades I have. It's a rich, deep purple metallic. If you love purple shades you'll likely enjoy Purple Heart (but probably not as much as Triple Platinum)

The other shades look pretty too, but I'm not a big red polish wearer so even though it is/was the holiday season, the shade Red Eye didn't appeal to me much - but certainly would be a pretty metallic red if you're looking for one - especially an affordable one! Blue Steel may be the only other one I should pick up; seems like a pretty shade. And Simply Silver just seemed a bit too much like others I have in my collection, but certainly would be worth checking into if you like metallic silver shades!

Overall, if you're looking for some great metallic shades in more holiday-themed colors, then the SinfulColors Holiday 2013 Mirror Metallics collection is what you've been waiting for. At $1.99 each, I love that you could get all 7 shades for less than the price of two OPI polishes and I find the SinfulColors formula to be great!
