Sally Hansen – In a Flurry

Quick post today, with a polish sent o me from my lovely Canadian polish twin.

When I first got into polish, I had a lot of Sally Hansens, they were cheap and plentiful.  Now I tend to forget about the line, which is a shame, because every so often there are some new gems.  Like this one.

This is In A Flurry, one of the fall 2012 colours issued in August or September this year.  Its a black creme base with flecks of green, gray and silver within it.  In the bottle it is very sparkly.

What you see above is three coats.  I’ll be frank, the formula was a bit gloopy and problematic for me. It also seemed to take an age to dry.  Nevertheless, I think its nice.  The sparkle in it is very subtle once its on the nail, so if you are hoping for a bit of bling, you may want to pass this one by.  I used my Essie all-in-one as the base coat and then topped with a thick layer of Seche Vite.  I went a bit thicker then usual with the Seche as I also found it dried a bit bumpy.  Wear time wasn’t that hot either, but I wonder if thinner coats and a bit of patience might work best here.

If you want to see the most amazing swatches of all three fall shades, you can see them on Scrangie’s blog.  Yes her with the magical fingers!
