Bargain Polish Smackdown: Sinful Colors vs Spoiled by Wet N Wild

Hello Ladies,

Over the last week, I have gone polish crazy!  In particular, I wanted to check out two bargain polishes: Sinful Colors and Spoiled.  Both are regularly $1.99 a bottle.  You can get Spoiled exclusively at CVS, and Sinful Colors is sold at Walgreens.  I had never purchased either brand, but this week, there was a 2/$3 sale on Spoiled and a .99 sale on Sinful Colors.  I bought two of each and will share my thoughts below.

L to R: SC Ciao Bella, SC Cinderella, Sinful I Got So Plastered,  Sinful Distant Memory
Initial Thoughts: The color selection from both brands is great.  Spoiled comes in 72 shades, and Sinful Colors releases collections periodically.  The packaging is very similar (nothing special), and the prices can't be beat!

First up, Spoiled by Wet N Wild :)  All photos are two coats and no top coat.



My favorite color of the four ended up being Spoiled I Got So Plastered.  It is a really pretty metallic pinkish brown, almost a rust color.  I love the finish on this one because metallics tend to be forgiving, and my painting isn't always the best.


The brushes on the Spoiled polishes are a bit wide, which I don't mind.  However, if you have small nails or want to get elaborate with your designs, this brush will not work.  The formula is think and opaque with two coats!



Next, I tried Distant Memory by Spoiled.  This color was opaque after just one coat, but I did two anyway. The weird thing about this polish was the finish was matte.  I don't mind a matte finish, but this one looked chalky and made my nails look dry. A top coat would be a fast fix, so I will probably never wear this polish without one.

On to Sinful Colors...



Ciao Bella is a gorgeous deep blue with a hint of shimmer.  I fell in love with it as soon as it was on my nails.  The SC formula is not as thick as Spoiled, and the brush is much thinner.  I found the opacity of this polish to be good and was pleased with just two coats. 



Last up is SC Cinderella.  This is the polish I was most excited about in the bottle, but I disliked it the most of the bunch.  The formula is so thin, and this polish is so pale.  As you can see, two coats did not do the job.  Plus, it was runny and took forever to dry.  The previous three shades took a while to dry (no longer than a Revlon Colorstay Polish on my nails but longer than Essie), but this one was tacky for a half hour after painting my nails.

Winner of this Smackdown: For me, it is definitely Spoiled.  I was able to wear the polish for about three days without chipping.  The SC polishes both chipped within a day.

For under $2, I would recommend trying both brands to see which works best for you.  When I want a bright, cheap color, I will be reaching for Spoiled.

Have you tried either of these brands?  What are your thoughts?

Talk Soon,

T.

  1. I love wet n' wild nail polishes but I never tried Spoiled. I'm tempted to now! Singful colors do also seem a bit too watered down for me.
