I honestly haven't had my nails bare in years and years. I routinely wear nail polish and don't like the look of bare nails on myself. The second I take an old coat of polish on, I put a fresh coat on. My favorite shades are reds and pinks. Sometimes I like to spice it up and add a coat of glitter on top for some sparkle. It's always fun to try new shades and find favorites.
Sally Hansen is the queen of cosmetics. The brand specializes in nail polish, nail treatments, skin products and hair remover products. I've been using Sally Hansen nail polish for as long as I remember. I really like how they are constantly coming out with new products to keep their customers happy. If I'm buying a new shade of nail polish in the drugstore I always head straight to Sally Hansen. The polish is quality. It looks great and is long lasting.
When I received the opportunity to try two new products from Sally Hansen's nail line up, I instantly said yes. Not only did I love the colors, they looked like something I would've picked out myself!
I received a bottle of Sally Hansen's complete salon manicure in Pink Pong, and a bottle of Gem Crush in Big Money.
Aren't these shades gorgeous? I love how the pink is such a light color, yet the Gem Crush adds some big sparkle to it!
I always love doing my nails. I'm very girly. I do my nails myself but in the summertime I like to treat myself to a mani/pedi. The Pink Pong glid over my nails and left its pink mark on them with ease. As the first coat was drying, I admired the color. The pink was subtle and delicate, not in your face. Sometimes it's nice to have a break from a big, bold color. The second coat gave a bit more life to the pink and brightened it. Then it was time to add the Gem Crush. I like anything sparkly, so of course this was right up my alley.
What I wasn't expecting was that the sparkles would be so thick. I thought it would be a light layer of sparkle so you could still see the color underneath. The sparkles covered up a lot of the nail polish. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, I just wish you could have seen more of the pink. I think next time I might put a light layer of sparkle on the tip of my nails instead.
The sparkle is fun though, it does brighten up one's day to look at it. The Pink Pong can be worn by itself if desired, especially if you're not feeling sparkly that day! Both polishes dried quickly and easily, and I had no issues with the polish smearing.
The Gem Crush would be the perfect addition to your nails for work or play, and especially a fun party at night too.
