Swatches > Sally Hansen HD | Spectrum

Follow my blog with bloglovin

Need I say more...really?!?  Such a pretty pretty color, although its coming across a lot more green than it is in actuality.  My Mom absolutely loves this color, she had to compliment me on it at least 20 times in the past 24 hours that I've been wearing it, LOL!  I know she's definitely going to want to wear this color on her toes, even though she usually sticks with the wines, reds, fuschias, and pinks on her toes (she doesn't do color on her fingernails).

This is one color you out on and will really want to wear for days.  I can literally change my polish everyday, because I get bored super fast with shades.  I will especially do this is I buy a lot of polish and am on a swatching frenzy.  So, just a heads up, don't be mad if you don't see any swatches for the next few days, because I will be wearing Spectrum during that time.  I got it BOGO @ Walgreen's last week, not sure if its still on sale this week, but if it is definitely pick up a bottle of this awesome color.

Now for everybody's fave, pics....

Swatches > Sally Hansen HD | DVD

Follow my blog with bloglovin

I absolutely adore the colors I got from this collection. It was my first time actually purchasing any shades from the Sally Hansen HD collections, and now I think I'm in love, LOL! DVD is a holographic violet, so as with all holos it reflects whatever like bounces off of the prisms with in the sparkles in the polish. I will say that you have to put your time in with the application of holos, it took 3 coats to achieve the look you see in the pics. Unfortunately, most of my nail polishes, including my tops coats like the beloved Seche Vite are in storage, so I had to use some generic Sally Hansen clear which didn't really give me the drying result I wanted. I have about 5 bottles of top coat in storage, the storage facility is about 4 hours away, so it will be a while before I go and I will make due with what I have or just break down and purchase some ChG FstFwd or a bottle of Seche Vite.

Anyhow, I highly recommend DVD and other polishes in the collection (which I will be swatching, so keep on the look out!).

Now for some pics!:



I'M BACCCKKKKK and I have goodies (well kinda, LOL)!

Just a quick note about being back!  I was on hiatus for a month if you already didn't know, but I'll be back up and going with swatches this week so stay tuned!

So happy to be back!
