Sally Hansen – Chilli Flakes

Another one of my slightly naughty eBay purchase to share here.  I’d been eying this up on lot of US blogs, and I do love a shard glitter.  This is called Chilli Flakes and was part of the limited edition release of Complete Salon Manicure.  Its made up of lots of shards in red, pink, gold and some silver in a clear base.

What you see here is one or two coats of the shard glitter over a base of Maybelline Color Show Greyze in Love, a fab slate grey which I think really helps make the colours of the shard pop.  The shards are red, pink, orange and pink… varying sizes and they do behave themselves and lie flat.  The effect does remind me of my beloved Revlon Moon candy polishes.

Love it love it love it!  Anyway, I think that Models Own have some glitter toppers that have shard like pieces in if you fancy something similar… let me know what you think and what you might have in your stash that is similar.

  1. ooh I really like that – would probably have passed it by on the shelf but the undies you used really make it look good! I’ve got one SH shard glitter – Pearly Whites – which I love, but the clear base is *very* thick, is this one the same?


    • Thanks for your comment – no its not too thick, it can get a bit claggy if you get lots of shards at once, but a redip solves that problem.
