Sinful Colors SinfulShine Polish is Amazing!

Sinful Colors introduced SinfulShine nail polish colors a while ago, but I only noticed them before Christmas. Even with a higher price, the SinfulShine colors are still way cheaper than most of their competitors. I was with my daughter at Walgreens, shopping for blush for me and a kid-friendly lipstick for her, when we saw the very enticing Sinful Colors display. I'm sure you aren't surprised to hear we went home with three new polish colors.

Penny picked a purple and a pink, which I'll talk about another time. Today, I really want to shout from the rooftops about the SinfulShine collection.

I bought VIP #1231, which is a lovely, rich pink that is very work-appropriate, feminine, and fun, but not super cutsie or immature. I quite like it, though I admit I normally wear reds for work and less traditional colors (black, green yellow, etc) for weekends and vacation.


It's not the shade, or the bottle, or the brush, that's awesome about SinfulShine. It's really, truly the staying power. For less than $3, I have a polish that doesn't look like crap after a couple of days. The photo above was taken 48 hours after applying the polish. In that time, I did 7 loads of laundry, cleaned 3 toilets, the kitchen sink and stove, baked 4 loaves of bread, and washed my hands a bunch of times. Any other polish that I've done at home would have been half worn off with that type of abuse, especially since I didn't use a base or top coat.

It was 8 days before I decided to take off the old polish and reapply, but I could have done some touchups instead and it would have looked fine. Seriously, 8 days!

Now, I'm not super picky about perfect nails, so I'm not saying they had a "just polished" look after 8 days, but unless you were staring at my hands, you wouldn't have noticed any chips or fading.

I've been telling my husband how I want to dump all my old polish and buy up every shade of SinfulShine. He's probably tired of hearing about nail polish now, hehe.

The real test will be on my daughter's nails. She can go to school with fresh polish and come home with almost none left. Working in the dirt does major damage to a fresh coat of nail color. I may have to get a SinfulShine purple shade to convince her to try "mommy's polish."

If you want to see more shades, there's a great post from Mommy Needs a Manicure Stat with photos of 12 of the 32 colors on someone else's nails.

Pottery Barn Kids Lunch Bags: Cute, but Annoying

When my daughter transitioned to "big kid school" this fall, I bought her a personalized lunch bag from Pottery Barn Kids. This was our first time having to send lunch to school, so I wanted her to enjoy carrying the bag and also have it be practical. She's just turning 4, so it was important that she be able to open the bag herself and carry it from the car to the lunch cart without assistance.

Pottery Barn Kids offers a slew of fabric patterns and four bag styles. Penny picked the MacKenzie Chocolate Zebra classic lunch bag, which is a fairly standard size and shape lunch box. We paid $7 to have her name embroidered on the bag, which I figured was worth the price to ensure her box isn't mixed up with another kid's lunch. I let Penny pick the font and thread color and ordered online.

Our classic lunch bag has now been used every weekday for nearly three months, but it looks more like a year old. It's still functional in that Penny can carry it in to school, o…

Switching from Olay Regenerist to L'Oreal RevitaLift

I've been using Olay Regenerist DNA Superstructure UV Cream for years now. I love the SPF 25 (it's now 30) the thick moisturizing quality, and how fresh my skin feels once it's absorbed. It's really thick, so it tends to need more time before I put on foundation, and it does leave my skin a touch lighter than it is in real life. The sunscreen ingredients mean this moisturizer smells just like traditional sun protection, and even a bit like my daughter's diaper cream (ick), but I know it's doing it's job and I've been really happy with it.


I intended to buy some more during a trip to Walmart today, but L'Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Day Lotion had a $2 off coupon attached, and the base price was less than the Olay product, so I took a chance and bought  the RevitaLift instead.


L'Oreal's bottle is prettier with a similar pump mechanism. Like Olay, the product is in an opaque container, which helps keep the contents from being affected by ligh…

eSalon.com Hair Color Review

It's now May 2014 and since my original review, I've had a chance to fly out to eSalon and see how orders are processed, learn the right way to apply color, and find out the differences between box color and eSalon color. I learned a lot and have a totally different perspective now and would definitely recommend giving eSalon a try.

When you order from eSalon, be sure to upload a current, well-lit photo of your hair and don't hesitate to ask their color experts for advice. The eSalon team are experts. Let them help you find the right shade and apply color correctly. It's a learning process if you're used to box color products.

Last August, I tried eSalon. At the time, I found the color was fine in that it was even and matched what I had seen online for that shade, but it wasn't really what I was going for. eSalon's customer service was helpful, with a colorist calling to explain how their product differs from what I buy in-store and the risks of going darke…
