I love any holiday that gives me an excuse to wear green nail polish (as if I need one) and with St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to dive into my emerald hues and figure out what to wear. If you’re struggling to find the perfect green to represent your Irish pride (we’re all Irish on March 17th, no?), then I’ve got eight great options for you.

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – Sinful Colors Open Seas from the Adventure Island collection

sinful open seas nail polish from the sinful adventure island collection for summer 2011 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

Even though I tend to be pretty much a salon brand kind of girl I do have certain drugstore lines that I consider quality buys. Sally Hansen is a given, Milani puts out some great colors and is regularly on sale and Sinful Colors makes the best budget nail polish I’ve tried. Though it’s always on the bottom shelf of the fragrance counter at my local Walgreens which really does a disservice the brand.

Of course my Rite-Aid knows Sinful’s value as they always place Sinful’s seasonal collections in a prominent spot. As was the case last week when I stopped in to see what was new.

Side note: The Rite-Aid closest to me has the best seasonal displays of any drugstore chain in the area. It’s a gold mine. The Sally Hansen Tracy Reese & Prabal Gurung collections? Both there, in full!

Anyway, on my last visit I noticed a display that looked eerily like the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides collection so I had to investigate by bringing Sinful Colors Open Seas home with me.

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – Color-Block Nails with Orly Ancient Jade

orly-ancient-jade-nail-polish-365-untrieds 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

Color-blocking was all over the Spring 2011 runways but being that my own personal style doesn’t really mesh with color-blocking, I translated the trend to nails. As much as I love how bright colors look on others, I tend to stick to neutrals when it comes to my own wardrobe. My nails are my color statement.

Inspired by a dress I saw while online window shopping on Nordstrom.com, I incorporated Orly Ancient Jade from the Precious Spring 2011 Collection to create a color-block manicure.

Go Green Week – Sinful Mint Apple

sinful mint apple nail polish bottle It’s Go Green Week on ALU! In celebration of Earth Day on Thursday, April 22nd I’m reviewing some of the great green polishes from this season that I haven’t yet shared. Included with the reviews are tips on how you can “green” your manicure routine.

I never seem to have luck when it comes to finding the LE colors from Sinful.  I don’t know if it’s because my local drugstores don’t typically order them or whether they sell out in a flash.  Either way, when my friend who lives WAY out east from me said that she spotted a whole mess of new Sinful greens for spring I pretty much figured I’d never see them.

So you can imagine my excitement a couple months ago when the clerk at my Walgreens told me they had some green Sinfuls behind the counter that they hadn’t put out yet.  Mint Apple was among those gorgeous green gems and in the sea of mint green polishes we’ve been seeing, this cheese stands alone.  Check it out!

Mannequin Hands is a new series featuring ALU Fanatics showing off their “mannequin hands” shade.  The one polish that best gives that elongated, flesh-toned look to their hands.

Today Kelsey S. is showing off her “mannequin hands” using Sinful Colors Satin.  Kelsey is a Bare Minerals Medium Beige/MAC NC35 and this is what she has to say about the color,

“This was a hand-me-down polish from a friend who had much darker skin and didn’t like the the way it looked on her. I found that it matched my skin tone pretty much perfectly and I love it! Having so many colors, this is always my go-to polish when I can’t make a decision on what color I feel like using. The formula goes on quite smoothly, and I never really have had any problems with Sinful Colors polish. It also has microscopic silver sparkles in it that you can’t really see unless you have a magnifying glass, that add to the luminosity of the polish.”
