Sally Hansen Gradient

I'm pretty obsessed Sally Hansen Yummy Yam. Here I added a bit of Sally Hansen Maasai Red and dry brushed it into a gradient. Very easy and perfect for fall.

Sally Hansen Big Smoky Top Coat

Sally Hansen Big Smoky Top Coat isn't meant to be worn alone but I decided to try it out anyway. It's a bit streaky so I needed 3 coats to get it even but it's pretty easy to apply. I wish I could have gotten it streak free with just two coats since I liked it a bit less opaque than shown here. I won't be using it again as an actual polish but it will be fun to try some Halloween looks using it as a top coat.

Sally Hansen Yummy Yam

Sally Hansen Yummy Yam is from their Fall 2015 Tracy Reese Collection.
 
 
Go buy Sally Hansen Yummy Yam right now if you love funky colors. (Just a heads up, it dries darker than bottle color.) The formula is truly superb; you could get away with one coat and no top coat if you're in a hurry. A new favorite polish for sure!

Thanks for reading!

Sally Hansen Tag Ur It

Sally Hansen Tag Ur It is a recent release from their Insta Dri line. I love this line with their wide brushes and unique bottle shape. 

Sally Hansen Tag Ur It has a great formula for a white creme, one of the best I've ever used in fact. Shown here at just 2 coats. We all know great white creme polishes are hard to find so I suggest going to the nearest drugstore and grabbing Tag Ur It soon!

Layering With Sally Hansen Pearl Crush

Sally Hansen's new Pearl Crush polishes are very interesting glitter toppers but a little tough to figure out so I've got lots to say about them! Here we have Sally Hansen She Sells layered over Sally Hansen Bare Hug.

Pearl Crush polishes have fairly large hexagon mylar glitters that constantly shift colors, really gorgeous glitters! She Sells also has very fine beige shimmer. It applies nicely and I didn't need to do any fishing for the large glitter. The glitters did occasionally stick to each other though creating very small stacks of 2-4 glitters. It was very easy to spot and fix with the brush (I just touched them again and then placed the glitter where I wanted it) and some people might not have noticed. I applied 2 coats mostly to make sure the shimmer didn't have any brushstrokes.
 

I really love this layering combination and think the Pearl Crush polishes are worth a look if you like unique polishes. The glitter looks like drops of water constantly catching the light which had me staring at my nails!

Sally Hansen Bare Hug

Sally Hansen is my favorite drug store polish brand and Sally Hansen Bare Hug is another fantastic polish. Truly great formula for a pale creme that covers in just two coats. Lovely neutral color too!

Sally Hansen Quick Brick

Sally Hansen Quick Brick is part of a limited edition set of Sally Hansen's Insta Dri polish line. Quick Brick applied like a dream and is shown here at two coats but I probably could have gotten by with just one. I absolutely love the Insta Dri brushes because they are wide and curved and just so easy to use. Great classic red cremes aren't hard to find but if you don't already have a few in your stash go pick this one up at your local drugstore!

Layering With Sally Hansen

I picked up Sally Hansen Sea-ing Stars on a whim and tried it out right before an event. It ended up being way too sheer to wear alone so I saved the day by topping it with my beloved Sally Hansen Distressed Denim Crackle polish. I'll always love crackles!

Layering With Sally Hansen Pearl Crush Polishes

Sally Hansen's new Pearl Crush polishes are very interesting but a little tough to figure out so I've got lots to say about them! Here we have Sally Hansen Mer-Mint and Shell And Tell layered over Sally Hansen Slick Black. The three Pearl Crush polishes I've tried are too sheer to be worn alone and are meant to be layered but I had a hard time figuring out what colors to choose for a base coat for these two; black seemed like a good default choice.

Both Pearl Crush polishes have fairly large hexagon mylar glitters that constantly shift colors, really gorgeous glitters! Mer-Mint also has a duochrome shimmer that shifts between turquoise and pink and Shell And Tell has a pink shimmer. The polishes apply nicely and I didn't need to do any fishing for the large glitter. The glitters did occasionally stick to each other though creating very small stacks of 2-4 glitters. It was very easy to spot and fix with the brush (I just touched them again and then placed the glitter where I wanted it) and some people might not have noticed. I applied 2 coats of each mostly to make sure the shimmer didn't have any brushstrokes.
 

Overall the effect was quite remarkable. I decided the glitter looked like droplets of water that were constantly catching the light. I think I could have picked a better base color for both polishes though. These aren't for everyone but if you love unique polishes give them a try! I have one more Pearl Crush to show you soon and it is by far my favorite of the three I tried.

Sally Hansen Slick Black

Sally Hansen Slick Black is from their Triple Shine collection. It's shown here at 3 coats since it was still quite streaky at 2 which I don't expect from darker shimmer polishes. Slick Black ends up looking like the darkest midnight blue in the nail with flashes of silver, very pretty!

Sally Hansen Insta Ombre Scarlet Spark

Sally Hansen Insta Ombre Scarlet Spark is from a new summer 2015 collection full of fine glitters in clear polishes meant to be used for glitter gradients. With all of the crazy glitters on the market this collection is a nice change of pace and perfectly suited for it's intended use.
Scarlet Spark is a mix of very fine red and silver glitters that I used here for a glitter gradient over one coat of Sally Hansen Polar Bare. Great formula and very pretty.

Sally Hansen Distressed Denim Crackle

I will always love a good crackle polish; they can hide so many problematic manicures in a flash. This time I used Sally Hansen Distressed Denim to tone down a neon polish (China Glaze Sun Of A Peach) that was also bubbly and streaky. Much better!
You can keep up with what I'm reading on Goodreads!
