Sally Hansen strobe light


A very dear friend of mine who moved to the US recently sent me a parcel. Rather than putting chocolate in the parcel as a throw in (I've been spoiled by the good stuff) she put some Sally Hansen nail polish in there. I squealed a lot when I opened the package! I've never tried SH, so I was keen to put this on ASAP.

I love the colour. The only difficulty I had was knowing what to put it over, since it's sheer. Here I used two coats of OPI Skull & Glossbones underneath, and I would in retrospect have chosen something different for the basecoat. Over that is three coats of glitter and one of Seche Vite.




The only difficulty I had is that the coverage is quite sheer (I assume it's meant for layering, rather than opaque colour) and the base is thick, so I used a lot of the bottle on one mani. I hope I don't use it up before I work out the perfect base coat colour!

I have this color and it really looks fabulous over ANYthing! I like your choice, I think it's rather lovely & subtle. I really like it over dark colors, though. I have used it over black and a royal purple. It makes the glitter really stand out. It really is kinda like a strobe light! :)

I really like this combo. It might also look pretty over a hot pink.

I love your combination! It's glittery but still soft and subtle looking because of the base. I think it's very pretty.

Just a gorgeous glitter. I agree that it would look pretty over anything.

These more chunky glitters do like to eat top coat. I try to keep some Gellous on hand for some of these so I don't run through bottles of SV like mad. I go through enough SV as it is...always stocking up when it is on sale.
