🌮 🍕Sinful Colors Sweet and Salty Collection: Tacos, Pizzas, and More!
Jun. 24, 2020
Are you bored in the house and you’re in the house bored? Why not ramp up your mani-pedi game with scented nail polishes!
Sinful Colors released the Sweet and Salty Collection earlier this year. Fronted by trendy beauty Bebe Rhexa, this scented polish includes fragrances such as tacos and cheese puffs.
I’ll delve into all the mouthwatering shades and let you know what to expect.
Sinful Colors Sweet and Salty Line: What Food-Inspired Fragrances Are There?
Rather than that unpleasant chemical stink, imagine the scent of your fave snack instead—yum, right?
The Salty and Sweet nail polish is also delightfully budget-friendly: each polish is only $3.00 a pop, cheaper than the food it smells like.
SINFULCOLORSweet and Salty Nail Polish
Let’s dive in nose-first:
1. Taco Tuesday
Taco scented nail polish has to be first on the list—I’m a taco-fanatic.
The bottle might look a little unappetizing, but the smell is something else entirely. You’ll get a legit whiff of that trademark tortilla aroma.
The scent isn’t overpoweringly strong, but it’s definitely there. Aesthetics-wise, the polish applies is pale orange with darker orange, red, and green flakes—pepper and lettuce accents!2. Pizza Party
There’s nothing like pizza for almost any occasion, including mani-pedis.
This pizza scented nail polish is subtle—if you’re expecting the same experience as opening a takeaway box from your pizza parlor of choice, you might be let down.
However, there’s a mild aroma reminiscent of that unmistakable pizza-dough-smell. You know, like when you bite into a thick crust and get that bready-smell?
On application, the polish is somewhat similar to Taco Tuesday. The base is tan with yellowish and red flakes, which you could look at as mozzarella and pepperoni.
3. Cheese Puff
Let’s be real: we’ve all had the dreaded cheesy fingers after indulging in a bag of Cheetos.
The Cheese Puff can match your nails to your fingertips after a late-night snack—it’s a vibrant flaming orange with a thick texture.
The fragrance is pretty spot-on, which can be a pro or a con: it has that distinctive cheesy odor to it. Unless you seriously love your cheesy puffs, that might get a little nauseating after a while.
4. Donut Even
Donut Even isn’t only a cute name, it’s one of the sweetest-looking scented polishes in the collection.
The base is pale pink and the rainbow-colored flecks turn your nails into the perfect strawberry-rainbow-sprinkle donut.
Scent-wise, you can anticipate sugary accents (duh) that are mouthwateringly donut-ish. If you adore candy-themed scents, you’ll be a fan.
5. Cookies & Creme
Cookies and cream work in almost any form: ice cream, milkshakes, actual cookies... I could go on.
This nail polish is in the same category as Pizza Party and Taco Tuesday: you’ll probably want to wear it exclusively for the fragrance.
It’s a brownish-grey base with dark brown sprinkles. Yes, that’s basically cookies and cream in a nutshell but it isn’t particularly enticing to look at.
In terms of smell, it has a sweetish cream odor—it’s one of the most food-ish fragrances in the collection.
6. Chocolate Cake
By this point, I’m starting to get a little peckish—Chocolate Cake is the last scented nail polish to review.
The texture is rough, which is interesting—like a dry, spongy piece of cake. The color is a deep chocolate brown to suit the name.
You’ll get whiffs of chocolate from the bottle, but it’s rather faint. You probably won’t be drooling over your nails all day (or get your crush to either).
What Other Scented Nail Polish Brands Are There?
Sinful Colors aren’t the only scented nail polish brand on the market. Other brands to get your nails smelling delicious include:
Revlon Parfurmerie Scented Nail Enamel
Revlon Parfurmerie Scented Nail Enamel includes a collection of 10 colors and fragrances—there’s a decent variety.
You can pick from enticing scents such as lime basil, winter mint, ginger melon, and China flower. The perfume should last for up to a week, but the coverage isn’t ideal.
KleanColor Nail Lacquer Scented
The KleanColor Nail Lacquer Scented line offers 23 perfumed colors, the most diverse selection on the list.
With timeless shades and sweet scents, they can complement any style. All the options consist of top-quality pigmentation and are chip-resistant, but may take some time to dry.
L.A. Girl Fruity Scented Nail Polish
L.A. GirlFruity Scented Nail Polish
L.A. Girl Fruity Scented Nail Polish polish consists of several popping colors. There’s everything from deep blue to a striking blood red.
The scents are inspired by the fruit the color represents. For example, blue is Blueberry Fizz.
Be warned that the polish might chip quicker than a non-aromatic variety.
Get Heaven-Scent Nails
Scented nail polish can definitely be an awesome addition to your beauty lineup.
Every time you lift your hands to your face, you’ll get a whiff of your favorite aroma! They’re also a great conversation starter and Insta-worthy share.
Bear in mind that for lines such as Sinful Colors, removing scented nail polish can turn into a chore. Flecks and glitters are the worst to scrub off your nails.
Stay Young Forever? ✨
That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?
My Farewell To Cherie
Follow me on Ig for more skincare since Cherie is leaving 😭 @naturedskinv This has been an amazing journey and I’ve made soo many amazing friends. Thank you for all the love, conversations, and just overall happiness I’ve experienced on this app. I’m definitely sad, a little upset, and a dash of confused, but thank you @cheriefor giving me such an amazing confidence boost and guidance. The way the app shaped my thoughts on skincare has been insane. I’m still willing to forget this and call it a joke if y’all are! 😭 Anyways thank you again and hopefully we can stay in touch 🙏🏾
Black Owned Makeup Look
So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream 💗💗💗 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
