20140125 sally hansen triple shine ree raff

Sally Hansen recently released a new line of nail color called Triple Shine. Sally Hansen says this line’s “innovative formula features a one-of-a-kind Ultimate Shield Complex, designed to help polish withstand the wear and tear of everyday living.” I sound like a broken record, but I must repeat this every time. It’s impossible for me to road test polish for wear time. There’s just too much polish to swatch and too few hours! But I CAN test polish for application and appearance. So today I have five polishes from the Triple Shine line in a few finishes to show you. All swatches are finished with Sally Hansen Triple Shine Top Coat.

This one is called Ree-Raf on the Sally Hansen site, but my bottle said Reef-Raf (which makes a little more sense to me.) It’s a summery, medium, coral-pink creme. This is two coats.

Wellies

Next we have Butter London Wellies, an amazingly bright green. This is described as a ‘green grass creme’ by Butter LONDON but I think it’s probably a bit too yellow to be reminiscent of grass. This was 3 coats, but I was definitely being over-cautious, you could easily get away with 2. 

Cruising

Hi all, today is my much overdue review of some Nanacoco polishes I received from HB Beauty Bar. I’ve already reviewed some of their foil shades here, but today I have some of their basic polish line colors. These polishes apply beautifully, have great formulas, and they are available for just $3.00 a bottle! (And you will find a discount code at the end of this review, too!)

First up, we have Nanacoco Romantic Cruise, a baby blue cream that (despite the name) looks perfect for winter! Shown above is two coats. This is a definite favorite out of the polishes I am showing you today. As simple of a color as it is, I didn’t have any like it in my collection, so you will definitely be seeing it in some nail art.

Times Square is a bright blue shimmer filled with holo hexes and dots. The glitters are buried in the base, but it’s a beautiful effect. I placed three round neon studs in a row at each cuticle.  (2 coats polish, 1 coat topcoat)

Today’s mani is all about the colour peach! I used three coats of Barry M – Peach Melba on most nails and Catrice – I Scream Peach! for some accent nails. The circles are from Konad plate m65 and I stamped with Konad Special Nail Polish in White.
