Happy Monday! If you are in the US you might have a vacation day from work, like me, whoo hoo!
Sally Hansen has some great new spring colors out in the Xtreme Wear line and I have some of them to show you. I didn’t get them all, but I got the coolest looking ones I saw. I think there were a few missing from the display, but I also saw a pink and a coral that didn’t seem all that interesting to me, so I didn’t purchase them.
The formula on these was really great. Aside from the wand on these being really long and a little harder to manager than a “normal” polish, I didn’t have any issues.
You might notice that I now have watermarks across all my pictures. I am REALLY unhappy about this because in my opinion watermarks are ugly and ruin pictures. However because I am dealing with my pictures being stolen literally 1-3 times a week by various eBay sellers and other e-tailer websites, I feel I needed to try and slow the theft down. I’m so sick of emailing people constantly telling them they cannot just swipe a picture simply because it’s on the web and available. Everything belongs to someone! I know a lot of people still have their pictures stolen even with watermarks, so I don’t know how much of a difference this will make. If it makes no difference then I’m just gonna remove them, because I really do hate them.
Anyway, check out the cool colors below! These pics were taken with cloudy skies above, so they are actually a little brighter in real life.
Wet Cement is a light cement grey creme. It looks exactly like the name describes in fact. I love grey polishes and I have a bazillion of them. None are dupes for this. This is much lighter than CND Asphalt, lighter than Barielle U-Concrete-me, lighter than OCC Dangerous and lighter than RBL Stormy (but not much). This was two coats.
Pacific Blue is a very vivid cornflower blue creme. This is a blue that I do not own yet, therefore I am really pleased with it. Plus it’s just really cool. This was two coats.
The Real Teal is a shimmery teal that leans on the green side. This is gorgeous people, just gorgeous. The application on this was particularly creamy and smooth. It might look like a dupe for Misa’s The Grass Is Greener On My Side, but that is a lot more green. China Glaze’s Turned Up Turquoise has more blue in it, so it’s not a dupe either. I did have a pic of that but the link is dead because it was on my old site, sorry! This was two coats.
Virtual Violet is a shimmery iridescent violet. This has a duochrome effect and changes from violet to blue to pink depending on the light. It’s amazing, you MUST own this if you like violets! This was two coats.
Purple Pizzazz is the star of the bunch, though I truly love each of these I have shown. But this, THIS is amazing! The polish is a deep royal purple jelly with pink and red flecks of glitter. I do not own anything like it and I think it’s launched itself up into the top 10 purples I own. This was three coats.
Overall I seriously love this collection. It’s rare that I find this many drugstore polishes in one collection that I like!
I found mine at my local Walgreen’s and they were around $3.29 each. You know Sally Hansen’s can be hard to find though since they don’t “evenly” distribute them across the country and stores, so good luck in finding them!
Which ones are you drawn to?
