If you’ve been around for awhile you may recall seeing some nail mail I got from Sally Hansen consisting of eight complete salon manicure shades which I have for you today. I couldn’t get these shades to water marble like the xtreme hardwear ones but I did find a liking to a few of them. Most of these colors are perfect for the fall months and the brushes if you didn’t already know are quite thick making for quick application.
Trouble Maker is a dark purple plum cream. Two coats with topcoat shown below. Accented it with a water marble using Lacquer Lusts Amethyst and Sapphire.
Kook a Mango is a reddish coral cream that also showed opacity in two coats. Felt this color was perfect to try out some dried flowers I got from Born Pretty store. I feel a flower inspired marble in the future.
Golden Rule is a gold microglitter topper. I used it overtop of Precision Nail Lacquer’s ‘Love you Long Time’. The application was a little sparse on this one as the brush is so large. Paired it up with some lepoard print which I always forget to add the extra black dots to. Probably should start adding some other type of art to my marbles if I can’t even get lepoard print right :D
Black and Blue is a layering duochrome that shifts from teal to dark purple. I used it over Aengland’s ‘Camelot’ to show the transition. The teal is more prevalent then the purple at most times. Studded it up with some hexagonal studs.
Blue My Mind is a dark kind of bright blue with a shimmery cream base. This was probably my top of this group as it was quite a perfect blue. Here it is shown next to some of the blooming mums in my yard. The contrasting colors was just too perfect.
Please Sea Me is an ocean blue cream that showed opacity in two coats. Hard for me to capture the trueness of any blue color so I would say this one is a little brighter then shown.
Jungle Gem is a dark teal blue cream that also showed opacity in two coats. My photo is nowhere near color accurate but as you can see it is a pretty dark color
Lastly is Mermaids Tale. This is filled up with teal and blue hexes and blue microglitters all in a blue jelly base. I layered one coat overtop of Jungle Gem.
The creams from this line apply quite nice I will always be a die hard xtreme wear fan but I can see myself slapping on Blue My Mind or Trouble Maker for a quick evening mani.
These shades can be found at your local walgreens or Target and all the colors can be viewed HERE.
