Sally Hansen Nail Prism Diamond - Fun with Holos!

Hey Ladies,

Today I have for you one of my many Nails Prisms :) I love these little guys, some of them are holographic and some are crazy duo-chromes, similar to the new Sally Hansen HD's

Today I have a little experiment I did with Sally Hansen Nail Prism's Diamond and some of the newer Sally Hansen Ultra HDs. (the Ultra HD's are apart of the newer line of HD's, basically more shimmery and pretty!)

Below is one of my Nail Prism holos, Diamond.

Don't let the photo fool you, this polish is pure holo in the right light.
I took the picture at night so all I had was the flash form my camera.

I came up with the idea for this experiment because I long for a bunch of the China Glaze OMG polishes that are no longer in production.

Anyways, I wanted to see what would happen when I layered a holo polish with a sheer coloured duo-chrome polish. Would the holo shine though the coloured polish? Would the coloured polish show through the holo?

I used these Sally Hansen Ultra HD's, left to right, Laser and Spectrum. I currently have DVD on my nails, pure love!! Expect to see a swatch of that shade soon.

Before I show you my layering expariment, I just wanted to let you ladies know that these polishes are sooooo cool! They are thin, DVD took 4-5 coats, but I wanted to see how far I could build it up. Next time I will layer over another polish... which is another post on its own for how cool that is! lol, but the outcome is so worth it. I wish I got more when they were on sale ( I got them for $2.99 CAD,) I love my deals :)

On to the holo-y goodness:

This is Laser layered with Diamond

This is Spectrum layered with Diamond

The shimmery duo chrome in the HD's make the halo so sparkly :) I wish I had gotten some photos in direct sunlight, the holo would be BLINDING!

What do you ladies think of my little experiment?


  1. Wow, these are gorgeous! You definitely don't need DV8 now!

  2. Okay you've sold me. I have to go get them all now. :P Shucks, more shopping. :p

  3. ABOP - thanks :) This will hold me over for now, hopefully DV8 will be mine... one day lol

    JQ - The HD's are so cool, I literally cannot stop looking at my nails! there are a couple in the new collection that aren't as shimmery though, so watch out

  4. halos are awesome but whenever I try to layer something it goes boom!

  5. I know what you mean, this wasn't my first attempt lol

  6. Ooh, that's gorgeous! Is Diamond still available?

  7. Zara - Thanks :) Unfortunately the Sally Hansen's Nail Prisms line is discontinued


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
