Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection

Sinful Colors Adventure Island Rise and Shine

I’ve been hearing a lot lately that the Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection has dupes for the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean Collection. I don’t own any of the shades from POTC but after a recent purchase of Sinful Colors Innocent, I wanted to try a few more shades from the brand. After suggestions from a few of my readers, I went to Rite Aid to check out the Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection. I found the greens to be pretty unique so I picked up Rise and Shine, Seaweed, Open Seas and Adventure Island

Rise and Shine is a turquoise  green with faint silver shimmer that dries to a semi-matte finish. I took this one with flash so that you can see the shimmer. It is still pretty much true to color. It is a repromote from the permanent Sinful Colors line-up and is not a dupe for any shades from OPI POTC. This is my favorite of the bunch! Reminds me of F21 Teal Polish but with shimmer.

Sinful Colors Adventure Island Seaweed

Seaweed is a pale pea green creme with slight grey undertones. It is a dupe of  Stranger Tides from OPI POTC and also Essie Da Bush.

Sinful Colors Adventure Island Open Seas

Open Seas is a dirty pastel sea foam green creme. It is a dupe of  Mermaid’s Tears from OPI POTC.

Sinful Colors Adventure Island

Adventure Island is a dirty pastel chartreuse yellow creme. This shade was the first to catch my eye as it looked so unique in the bottle. I have recently become obsessed with different shades of dirty pale greens.

The purple shade, Verbena which is supposed to be a dupe of Planks a Lot from OPI POTC, looks like a lighter version of  China Glaze Spontaneous. Verbena is also a repromote and permanent shade. One of the pinks, Starfish is supposed to be a dupe of Steady as She Rose from OPI POTC. There is also Beautiful Girl a bright pastel pink, and Easing Going which is a very pale pastel pink. Neither of these are dupes for any shades from OPI POTC. I did not pick up the rest of the shades from Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection because I already have similar shades in my collection.

Dupes or not, the Sinful Colors Adventure Island Collection is beautiful in it’s own right and very affordable at $1.99 a pop. Not only are the polishes super cheap, they are of great quality. They apply smooth and last long on the nails without chipping. OPI can retail anywhere between $8-$15 a bottle. Sinful Colors is clearly the winner in my book!


When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

      It is gorgeous. I currently have Rise and Shine on my hands and Sinful Colors Innocent on my toes. I am loving the contrast of the two!

    i’m just getting into bright, funky nail colors (no more boring nudes) and sinful colors has definitely been a winner in my book… great quality, beautiful colors, downright cheap price and they’re “3 free” … a win, win, win

    I love Sinful Colors nail colors. I am presently wearing Innocent. I have Rise and Shine, but i have not worn it yet. Another great color by this line is called WHY NOT. It is a fabulous blue.
