Mainstream Swatch and Review - Play Your Cards Right by SinfulColors

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovely readers. Today I am reviewing the Play Your Cards Right collection by SinfulColors.


The Play Your Cards Right is one of several collections released by SinfulColors in Spring 2016. The collection is comprised of 8 polishes, including 4 new limited edition releases: Trump Card, Cash Game, Aced Out, and I'm All In. Today I will reviewing the 4 new releases.

Cash Game

This polish is a canary yellow glossy shimmer. The formula is quite nice. It self-levels and covers from the very first coat. Two easy coats its all it takes to become opaque. Shown below are 2 coats plus top coat.

Aced Out

This polish features multichrome microshimmer and dark metallic microshimmer in a blackened base. Like Cash Game, the formula is great. It just takes 2 easy coat to become opaque. The finish is not fully glossy but it is not matte. Shown below are 2 coats plus top coat.

Trump Card

This is an off-white glossy polish with subtle gold microshimmer. The shimmer is almost impossible to capture but it is there, and it is very pretty! The formula is a bit on the thick side and goes on streaky. Shown below are 3 coats plus top coat.

I'm All In

This topper features opalescent microglitter, black diamond-shaped glitter, and red metallic heart-shaped in a light lavender base. The microglitter can best be appreciated when worn over a dark base. The larger diamond-shaped glitters were not a problem to swatch but the heart-shaped glitters are difficult to retrieve. Shown below are 2 coats over Black on Black by SinfulColors. The diamond- and heart-shaped glitters were placed over Cash Game.

Overall, I think this is a nice collection. I was surprised by how much I like Cash Game, as I am normally not a yellow polish kind of person! The standout of the collection is Aced Out. The color is unique, the formula is fantastic, and it looks great with both a glossy or matte top coat.

This collection is available at Walgreen's and it retails for $1.99 US.

Did you get this collection? I would love to hear from you!

  11. Cute collection!!!! I love that white, hate to hear it was thick. Do you think a good dose of thinner would help?

  13. I was also very surprised that I liked Cash Game (judging from your swatches, I don't own it). I have maybe 3 yellows in my collection because you sometimes just *need* yellow for a nail art look. Aced Out reminds me of Sinful Colors Secret Admirer, but from your bottle shot it is clear they are quite different.

  17. I have to say, none of these catch my eye. Which is strange, at least one polish from every collection usually jumps out at me. Great swatches though!

  22. I can see people who aren't insanely into nail polish could be satiated with colours like these for sure.
