Sun was out, and I had time to grab some shots.
Essence Glisten Up!
This is such a little gem of a polish.
Two coats over Sally Hansen Marble Creme. For a start it's not just a flakie, it's got a pretty iridescent glitter that works soft magic.
Sally Hansen Marble Creme is such a favorite of mine. It's a seafoam green that isn't just a mint green, it's like a grown up mint green. J'adore.
I had been trying out a purple, a shimmer that I've now since gotten ride of because of toluene, etc, blah blah...meanwhile, I wanted to wear Petites Dare to decide about it, again.
I'd blogged it here before over a light blue, but wanted to see what it looked like over a deeper shade. Plus it had been really a minor player once Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure came on the scene.
Fortunately the flakies pop out a bit better, which really helps.
I did want to show Hidden Treasure over Marble Creme, too.
Many people, I see, seem to think that Hidden Treasure is full of these intense greens and oranges, but pop it over a pastel and voila! you've got a beauty.
This is two coats.
This is Marble Creme after its been evaporated down to almost a solid block and I added thinner and some clear polish to bring it back. It still is a low-pigment polish (kid yourself not, Sally Hansen was a cheap piece of work on pigment on this polish), but it's not a complete bear to wrestle into drying and application.
Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!
