Royal Periwinkle

Periwinkle: I love it!

Here are a pair that are beauties.

Left to right:
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Royal Hue
Milani Power Periwinkle
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Royal Hue
Milani Power Periwinkle

All three coats, all no top coat.

If you can see a difference, good luck.  Similar to the legendary SH Pacific Blue, but lighter, sweeter, and just as delightful.

Power Periwinkle is often at Dollar Tree in my 'burg, so I will pick up a backup every now and then. It's just lovely. Royal Hue was on a Sally Hansen special display, but it is on the SH website in their stable of Xtreme Wear colors, so good news, you should be able to find it.

In comparison of the formulae, I'd say Milani was a bit creamier, more viscous, which lent itself to a tad bit less work applying it, though the SH wasn't a let down at all.

Clearly a case of "if you have one, you don't need the other", but in my case I need both.

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. I feel like the Milani is just a hair lighter? But pretty much the same. Both quite lovely!!
