Today I have a quick mani post, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, Sequin Scandal.
Click to zoom in on the shimmer!
I keep wanting to call this one sequin sandal lol, I think I read it wrong the first time I saw it on a blog and now it's stuck in my head!
This is a part of the latest limited edition line (by Tracy Reese). When I saw the full display I knew I had to have this and Problem Child, they were the stand outs for me. One thing both polishes have in common are these little flakie bits. I didn't even know Sequin Scandal had them, but once you give the bottle a good shake they appear. Keep this in mind when purchasing, to me it looked like some bottles had more flakies than others.
My photos show 2 coats with no topcoat. Unfortunately it was grey the day I took this picture so you don't see a lit of the shimmer, I forgot to take a flash shot. This polish is very pigmented and you could get away with one thick coat if you wanted to, I opted for 2 thinner ones.
The colour is a deep olive green with golden/green shimmer. I really love it :) I am super in to the darker shades lately. Fun Fact: when I was in high school all I wore was black nail polish lol
The formula on these "salon" polishes are awesome, I really like them. I always have to get use to the brush at first, but it really helps to get a nice clean curve at the cuticle.
This polish definitely needs a topcoat to truly sparkle, but I had planned on layering another colour on top, so I decided not to add more coats of nail polish on top than I needed to.
