Sinful Colors: 2012 Cast Away Collection Review & Swatches (Picture Heavyyy)

Good morning! 
As promised on my Facebook page, here are the 8 nail polishes from the Sinful Colors Cast Away Collection. There's quite a bit to cover, so let's jump into it! ;) 

Note: I took into account many of your recommendations to better my blog and the main suggestions I had were to enlarge my pictures. I'm loving how easier it is to view each picture, hope you guys like it too! Remember, all photos on my blog posts are clickable!


1112 Olympia 
This makes my top 4 list from this collection. Olympia is a soft, sea foam green. If you've ever had split pea soup, this may look similar. This was pretty streaky on the first coat, but evened out after an additional coat. Perfect for Spring/Easter!


982 Be Happy
Hmmm, I'm guessing this is a re-promote as the name and number has no relation to the collection. Anyone know? Anyway, Be Happy is a pale, blue that leans to a light grey. It's a bit difficult to describe. This was also tricky to apply and was very streaky after the first coat. This was two coats.


1107 Greek Isles 
I'm gonna get straight to it, this was absolutely horrible to apply. I'm not sure if it's just my bottle, but, this was a thick mess. This is a pale aqua that is a combination of Be Happy and Athens(next pciture). If they were to be mixed, Greek Isles, or something similar would appear. 


1113 Athens 
A teal with a hint of greyish green. Application was perfect after 2 coats. No problems here. IMO, Be Happy, Greek Isles, and Athens are pretty dupeable and unfortunately does not draw my attention after application. 


1109 Grecian Sun
A vibrant, corn flower blue that was perfect after 2 coats. I could have gotten away with 1 coat if I were more careful. I love blues of this hue, it's very clean and crisp IMO. ;)This also makes my top 4. LOVE!


1114 Neptune 
Neptune is a blurple meets grey infused with silver micro shimmers. It definitely reminds me of a more amplified version of OPI's I Have a Herring Problem from the Holland Collection I showed you all a few weeks back. You know, now that I think of it, I actually prefer this over IHAHP. This was 2 effortless coats. Neptune also makes my top 4 list. Stunning!


1108 Zeus 
Rounding up my top 4 is this baby! Zeus is a gorgeous dusty lilac with a soft, pink opalescent shimmer. This was 2 coats and application was like buttah! ;) Beauty!


1110 Pandora
Lastly, my least favorite from this collection. :/ As many of you all know I'm not a huge fan of salmon/apricot granny colors. Again, I don't mean this in a negative way, but my grandma owns many of nail polishes from similar to this hue. This is probably the one color I absolutely refuse to wear. I will give it this, application was perfect after 2 coats. 

Overall, I only liked 4 colors from this collection. However, I do think SinfulColors did a great job with the names and the overall idea of this collection. Formula varied from each polish. Some were either streaky or thick. On the other hand, they offered 4 unique colors that I am very pleased to add to my ever growing nail polish stash. ;)

Olympia, Grecian Sun, Neptune, and Zues

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

  5. This is very helpful. SC are hit or miss when it comes to application. Now I know which ones to avoid, if I ever see them in my Wags. In my small town, these LE collections and colors are rarely brought in. In the meantime, I'll enter your giveaway for them and see if I can get them that way. Thanks!

    1. Thank you! I agree, def hit or miss. Keep in mind that it may have just been a bad bottle. I haven't seen too many swatches of these online yet, so it's kinda hard to tell.

    1. SEE...that's why they put in that salmon peachy shade - there ARE folks out there who wear those shades and love 'em...and it's a shade that is hot this year - fits with all the corals and tangerines so popular now. I also like Pandora...however have not gone looking for it on evil bay...I have only got Zeus and Pandora..now seeing all the green/teals I want to get a couple more!

    1. What an amazing place you live!!!! However, sure you are in anxiety over the last vote and what will happen with your country's economic situation esp if they pull out of the Euro. I have not been to Greece and the area around it for far too long - maybe 20 yrs now. I would adore if I had the $ to travel again.

  48. No , I haven't senn before:) and my favourite is BE happy.

  49. I bought six of them and my four favorites were the same as yours. Zeus is definitely the best though. <3

    ReplyDelete
  50. These are absolutely gorgeous! I agree with your top four, but lots of the colors really spoke to me. I don't have a lot of colors like this, muted and soft. I might have to start stalking the Sinful Colors section of my local Walgreens!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I haven't seen these colors in my area. My favorite is Grecian Sun. It so pretty. I guess I should be on the hunt to see if I can find any of these colors.

    1. Me too - we don't get the Sinful collection new releases anywhere around where I live which is in the boonies - we have a Rite Aide - but it only has the same colors for a year it seems. Last new thing they got were the little art like polishes from Sinful last holiday.

  52. All these colors are beautiful, but my favorite have to be Neptune and Zeus.

  62. This colours make me feel summer is closer :)

  63. FAB photos of your swatches - thanks so much for doing a blog on the full collection. I live in a rural area that only has a few Sinful shades and we never get collections. I started to see a FEW shades from this but could not find good photos of the entire collection - now I have. I had to turn to evil bay to get the 2 I have - Neptune and Zeus...but now I want to get a couple more from the collection if I can track them down. Who would think anyone would live in a place where Sinful Colors is impossible to get in the US??? The colors all lined up look so beautiful - sure you have heard the skuttle-butt over the wrong name given to Neptune that should have been Posiden (Roman vs. Greek god of the sea). I think maybe Be Happy's name came from it being a place you would go and be carefree and happy? Just my guess. Agree - Sinful's team could have been more creative on a name for that one - they only needed to look up names of Greek Gods and would have found a good Greek name fast.
