Tips for those of you looking for Sinful Colors at your Dollar Tree stores (and a nail look I created using these two polishes) after the jump...
Not all Dollar Trees carry the same shades of Sinful Colors polishes. In fact, the inventory varies DRAMATICALLY from location to location. At one of my local Dollar Trees, they had a TON of Irish Green (which usually only surfaces at Walgreens right before St. Patrick's Day, along with Green Ocean) and a few other older core shades like San Francisco.
However, I've heard from several of you who have spotted shades at Dollar Tree from previous Limited Edition collections like the Summer 2011 Adventure Island Collection (OPI Pirates dupes) and others. And reader Jessica on Facebook just spotted Green Ocean (the flakie that only appears at Walgreens around St. Patrick's Day) at her local Dollar Tree.
The moral of this story: If you're looking for 1/2 price Sinful Colors polishes, check every Dollar Tree in your city. You never know what you might find! And remember: newer limited edition and core shades are all numbered in the 1,000s. So chances are, if the polishes you find have numbers below 1,000, they're probably older core (permanent) shades.
A nail look I created using Sinful Colors Irish Green and Bad Chick:
When Rite Aid was clearancing out all of the Sinful Colors Nail Art polishes (they were $0.49 each) a while back, I should have listened to all of you and bought a zillion of them. These stripers are WAY better than the LA Colors Art Deco stripers I own (also purchased at Dollar Tree). The brush is shorter and the formula is thicker, which makes them SO much easier to apply to the nail. I'm horrible at freehand nail art, but even I can do a few stripes thanks to this polish. If you're convinced you can't do freehand nail art, I say give one of these a try if you spot them at Dollar Tree. They might seriously change your mind.
Also, my Dollar Tree had a bunch of shades (cremes and shimmers) of the Nail Art polishes. Hopefully yours does too!
Have you purchased any Sinful Colors polishes at Dollar Tree lately? I would absolutely love it if you'd leave a comment and let us know which shades you've spotted!
