Sally Hansen - Sequin Scandal

Hey Ladies,

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.

What do you think about the newest Sally Hansen Fall collection? Which polishes are your favorite?

  5. Hello Danielle, First of all, excuse me for not writing very well in your language. I don't manage to find the polish SALLY HANSEN SEQUIN SCANDAL. You would agree to buy me one and send it to me in France. Of course, I shall pay off to you the polish and the postal charges. I can pay by Paypal. I thank you for your answer. Goodbye.
