Old (and awesome!) swatch: Sally Hansen Turquoise Opal


I got this in a "mystery swap" with someone from Makeup Alley's Bath & Body Board. I've probably mentioned this before but I love "etailer" (in this context, small online retailer that is often a SAHM working out of her kitchen or generally a woman with a tiny handmade cosmetics business) bath/body & home fragrance products. My favorites right now are Cleanse Your Soul, Bissy's Boutique, Bathed & Infused, and smfildes on etsy.

Anyway, not all scents work for me (obviously) so I have a pretty healthy swapbox of B&B. Instead of swapping individual products, sometimes I'll swap one big box of stuff for another big box of stuff. Sally Hansen Turquoise Opal came in one of those boxes along with some other goodies. I thinned it out slightly and layered two coats of it over the dusty teal STRANGEBEAUTIFUL from Volume 3.

I mean, does it even NEED explication? I think words would ruin it. :)

Very pretty. I love scents. I have many perfumes. I would feel naked without a perfume on. Your nails look fabulous.

I'm so jealous! I wish these were still in production. I love duochromes!

That is so cool!

Gorgeous! The only thing that would make it even better is if it were a creme. Is there even such a thing as a creme duochrome? That would be awesome!

Awesome. The second picture looks just like the peacocky colour I'm currently chasing.
