SinfulColors Let’s Talk (+ a comparison to Pixi Amazing Amethyst)

This was the first SinfulColors nail polish I ever purchased. No, really! Although, that shouldn’t be that shocking…it’s purple and shimmery. Back then purple shimmery polishes had a monopoly in my collection. The reason I pulled this back out now is that Pixi Amazing Amethyst reminded me quite of bit of Let’s Talk and in the comments Zoey asked if there were any affordable dupes. Below the jump there is a comparison of the two.

Anyway, Let’s Talk is gorgeous! It is an electric purple with blue undertones packed with shimmer. This is definitely bordering on frosty but I would not call it frosty.

This is one of those purples that absolutely freaks my camera out. It pulls significantly more blue in my swatches than it is in real life. Apparently I’m not the only person who has had that problem with this polish. I couldn’t find an accurate swatch anywhere on the internet! So definitely check it out next time you’re at the drugstore. The bottle color is very accurate.

The formula of this polish is a bit thin. I did need three coats to get an opaque color. Otherwise, I have no application complaints.

Like I said, below the jump there is a comparison of Let’s Talk and Pixi Amazing Amethyst. They are not dead on dupes but they are close and Let’s Talk has the same electric quality that makes Amazing Amethyst so special. Let’s Talk is definitely a good less expensive alternative.

Also below the jump there are more swatches of Let’s Talk!

  1. Oooh! So glad you did a side by side comparison of Sinful’s “Let’s Talk!” & Pixi’s “Amazing Amethyst”! I fell in love with the Pixi’s purple courtesy of your blog, but thought it looked familiar as I have Sinful’s “Let’s Talk!” And you’re right on the money as”Let’s Talk” is definitely blue purple–so much so that when I had it on, I was disappointed, purple lover that I am!

    Love your blog! Keep up the great work! And happy polishing! 😉

  2. Pixi’s Amazing Amethyst is looking more purple and less shimmer maybe? But for me if the formula was OK on the Sinful (and I could find it), I would rather speak the $ on Sinful. We hardly have any Sinful – they are so picked over at the 2 stores that have tiny collections and we never get the new groups of them. Pixi is only at Target right ? or is it Walmart? Both are a really long drive for me.

    • Let’s Talk isn’t as blue as it looks in my swatches. They are definitely more similar in person. Let’s Talk is just a bit darker.

      Pixi is only available and Target and on their website. I’d be surprised if even a picked over SC display didn’t have Let’s Talk. It’s such an old color!

  3. Thanks so much for posting this! I’m going to have to keep an eye out for “Let’s Talk”!

  4. Hum… Looks similar to Wet n Wild Buffy the Violet Slayer, which is a bit bluer.

  5. I love comparisons, thanks for sharing!
