Sally Hansen Mosaic Creme - Layered

I have had Sally Hansen Mosaic Creme for many years.  Like 4-5. One of those "OMG Sally Hansen At The Dollar Tree!!!" kind of things.
There are three bottles in my drawer! What? I think when the two pack action was going on it just ended up that way.

Ah, memory lane at the Dollar Tree.

Well, Mosaic Creme is one of those cremes that isn't super densely pigmented. I really was surprised - insert irony - that it was so sheer.

I knew it was a good one for a sandwich!

First I'll introduce the glitter to be covered up!

Make U Smile, but Nicole by OPI

Silver hex glitter with a complementary gun metal gray small glitter. Two coats.

Although it looks gold, it is actually silver.

I found this at T.J. Maxx a few months ago. A quick gander at gewgle showed a now-defunct Target page listing it as a Justin Bieber polish, or was a polish from one of his collections.

The silver glitter isn't unique at all, but gun metal is, I only have one other polish with a gun metal glitter.

Here it is over Mosaic creme. The green tone of the lighting basically turns Mosaic Creme into a gray.

It is a really gray, like the saturation has been removed from a blurple.

Next up: sandwiching.

One thing that always happens with silver glitter is that it turns white. Nice!

I alternated coats, three on the base, then alternated Make U Smile with Mosaic Creme.

This photo captures the shade better.

Here's another:

Of course the old Sally Hansen matching cap was great, if a bit optimistic about the shade in the bottle!

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!

    1. Thank you for your comment! kind of nice that it makes silver convert. I need to try it on other metallics. ;D
      As I recall it makes them kind of pastel. More testing needed. ;D
