I thought I’d use the next couple of blog posts to catch up with some US Nail Polishes that I have recently been sent. Up first, I have one for you that I have worn a lot, particularly on my toes, and I have actually loaned this bottle to several friends as they all went a bit gaga for it. So I give you Sterling Silver, one of the new Sally Hansen Color Foils, part of a huge range of new shiny goodness!
We all know that foil polishes can be a menace. They dry quickly even whilst you are on the first brush stroke meaning that you can often see your brush strokes. AND top coat makes them shrink onto the nail in a seriously unattractive way. That said, I love this and I love it hard. This is some silver polish.
Formula is runny but not unworkable. It goes onto the nail quite fluidly but it dries fast. What you see above it two coats over a base of G&G Stuck on Blu! I probably should have used more of a ridge filling polish to provide more of a smooth base, but there you go. No top coat here. Without top coat, I probably get a day out of it. I did top up the tips and keep it on an extra day and that worked quite well.
As I mentioned this is a US Edition polish. I have noticed several Sally Hansen lines, other than Complete Salon Manicure and Insta Dri, popping up in pound stores in the UK. most recently, the Spring Jelly polishes from the Triple Shine line have been spotted. You can get the odd one on eBay or perhaps get a US based buddy to send them over. I can never quite understand why the SH range is so truncated in the UK, we’ve got a few bits and some glitter toppers, but I think they would make a killing if they broadened the range.
Anyway, rant over! Let me know what you think in the comments!
