Sally Hansen Insta-Ombre Review and Swatches

*Press Sample*

I think it's safe to say ombre is the trend of the decade. From hair to home decor, you can find it anywhere! Sally Hansen just released a line of polishes to help you achieve the ombre look on your nails. I really love the look of a glitter gradient on nails and it's a go to look for me, so I was excited to give these a try! The bottle says to apply one coat to the full nail, wait a minute and apply a second coat starting at the middle of the nail, wait a minute and apply a third coat to just the tips. 

Let's take a look at the 4 I have to show you and I'll give you my thoughts at the end of this post.

Gold Grade is a fine yellow gold and silver mix.

Copper Cap is fine copper and silver glitter.

Layer on Lilac is purple and silver glitter.

Grey-diant is charcoal and silver glitter.

My thoughts: I really like the subtle and delicate look these give to bare nails. I find that it took some extra dabbing here and there to get an obvious gradient look. I also didn't bring the first coat all the way down the nail because I feel like that contributes to the overall gradient look better. These polishes can easily be layered over another color for a different look. I will be posting that on my Instagram (mynailgraffiti) soon. The formula was very thin and easy to work with, especially for a glitter.

The only complaint I have is that it can be hard to get a true gradient look with just the one size of glitter in this bottle. I think these would have been even better if it came with a second bottle of slightly larger glitters to use at the tip to mid point. But that said, I feel like it's harder to find bottles of superfine glitters (as opposed to larger glitters) like these to use in a gradient look so they are very helpful to use in achieving it.

This collection is limited edition and retails for around $6/bottle.

Have you picked up any of these yet?

SinfulColors Street Fusion Collection Swatches and Review

*Press Sample*

Hey everyone!

I have a selection of polishes from the new for summer 2015 SinfulColors collection called Street Fusion. This collection "reflects the vibrant and eclectic chaos from around the world".

I have six of the 29 shades to share with you today.

Otaku Anime is a shimmery, frosty banana yellow. I did 4 coats...pretty sheer. It is a more wearable yellow since it's more on the golden side. 

Maroon Fine terra cotta with a gorgeous shimmer in it. I would gravitate towards this more in the fall, but I do love this one. And I'm not sure maroon is the right color description for this one?

Writing on the Wall is a splatter topper with matte glitter. While this has a neat effect, I don't feel like this topper is very versatile.

Paste-erd is a blue version of Writing on the Wall. 

Pink Ansen is an iridescent bar glitter topper. Very cool effect.

Fuji Fuji is a silver holo glitter topper. I love this one the best I think! The glitters were not too sparse which made this easy to apply.

 Keep an eye out for this collection out in stores now!
