Today I have some Sally Hanson Foils I just picked up. I was in a foil mood from seeing so much of the China Glaze Holiday collection foils and just happened to find these :)
From left to right: Applause, Rave Review, Brushed Gold, Antique Frost and Pure Metal.
I had picked up another one, but it was close to Pure Metal so I didn't swatch it.
Applause - a purple foil with what looks like some silver bits
Rave Review - a deep silver foil, looks like there is a hint of deeper shades in there also
Brushed Gold - a yellow gold foil
Antique Frost - a bronze foil
Pure Metal - a white/platinum silver
Below I have them swatched on my fingers:

Thumb - Pure Metal
Index - Antique Fost
Middle - Bushed Gold
Ring - Rave Review
Pinky - Applause
Overall I would have to say that my favorites are Applause and Rave Review, they are definitely the most foily polishes of the bunch. Brushed Gold is alright too, but the gold is a little too yellow for me, same goes for Antique Frost, too bronzy. These 2 were also a little bit more frosty than I thought they would be.
Pure Metal was an interesting colour, it was a mix between a foil and a chrome, I think this one would work good for konading.

I'm glad that these ones were so cheap because I get to try them out and if I don't like them, I don't feel so bad :) I actually really do like them, it is very different for me, but I like it.
Over all these are decent, easy to apply, easy to remove. I'm pretty sure that there are a couple of collections in here, one sounds theater themed and the other is more metal/metallics. Does anyone know for sure? I wish each brand had a timeline of their polish collections, that would be so awesome!
Anyways, what do you ladies think? Do you like foils? If these were still around would you pick them up?
