Spotted: Sinful Colors and Sinful Shine Holiday 2014 Collections

UPDATE: all shades in both Sinful Colors displays added to this post (see below).

The Sinful Colors Holiday 2014 Collections have landed (well, part of them, at least!) and I've got some great pics and info to share with you thanks to two lovely readers.

Let's start with the Sinful Colors displays. Reader Maggie spotted these are Rite Aid this week and was nice enough to share some pics:

The shades in the Holi-Dazzled! Collection from left to right:

839 Sugar Sugar (repromote)
1381 Decadent (repromote)
1497 Twlight Twinkles (NEW)
1398 Pine Away (repromote)
1498 Galax-Sea (NEW)
831 Hottie (repromote)
929 Let's Talk (repromote)
842 Out of This World (repromote)

As I was working on this post, Yadi of Night Swatcher blog confirmed to me that there are only two new shades total in both of the above displays (the rest are repromotes from the permanent line and past limited edition collections). Both new shades are in the Holi-Dazzled display and they are:
  • 1497 Twilight Twinkles 
  • 1498 Galax-Sea
You can see bottle shots of both new shades on Yadi's Instagram HERE (spoiler alert: shards!).

You may be thinking, "Wow, two new holiday displays and only two truly new shades?" And I would agree that this is kind of a bummer. BUT, there is one harder-to-find gem lurking here! Yadi mentioned to me that the Walmart-exclusive shade Ice Blue is in the Holiday Wishes display (it's the fourth shade from the left in the pic at the top of this post). My pal Amanda of Pretty Girl Science has swatches of Ice Blue HERE if you're new to this shade. So yay for that!

Next up, Yadi of Night Swatcher blog spotted the Sinful Shine Holiday 2014 Collection at Rite Aid and kindly shared this pic:

(retail: $1.99 each, 0.5 oz)

Yadi confirmed that there are no new shades in this display--they are all repromotes from past collections. HOWEVER, Yadi also pointed out that Prosecco is in this display (see last shade on the right). Yes, THAT Prosecco. The one that's causing quite a stir in the polish community lately (originally from the Fall 2014 Shining Bright Off the Runway Collection). So you have another chance at it, polish fanatics! 

NOTE: If Sinful Colors is following what they did last year, then I would expect that there will be a few more counter displays for Holiday 2014, and we might see some additional brand new shades. Last year, all of the counter displays spotted early in the season at Rite Aid were combined into one giant end-cap display that popped up at both Walgreens and Walmart later in the season. So don't get bummed about the lack of new shades just yet...I have a feeling we're going to see a lot more from Sinful in the weeks to come. 

Thanks so much, Maggie and Yadi, for the great sightings, pics and info. I really appreciate it!


  1. I love the color selections in each collection. Is it just me or does holiday wishes have a very Hanukkah theme going? I just love the color combinations in I will be able to round out my sinful nail collection.

  2. I'm glad to have helped, thank you so much for the links!

  3. Hoping for some more new shades, because I'm not impressed by the new shard polishes at all. :(

  4. My heart skipped a beat when I saw all those blues until I realized I have most of them. Lol. Anyway I am hoping for new shades soon. Thanks for the heads up!

  5. I hope the Sinful Shines come to a store near me. My Wags and CVS are the most display-less stores ever. Like Robin, I have most of the others.But now I know what to look for. Thanks G.

  6. Anyone know about sinful colors outta space #1495

  7. Has anyone found the shining lights collection at Walgreen's? I need to get back ups of Wisp and Dark Room but I don't have Rite Aids by me
