My first nail polish was a Sally Hansen’s. I’m sure it was one of my Mom’s. My Mom used to have the most glamorous and long nails. Gosh, I wish my scanner would work on my printer because I’d love to show you a photo of my mom…her senior photo. She’s simply beautiful. And I ended up looking like Dad! No fair!!!
So, Sally’s Hansen has a looonngggg history. And, fortunately, they have kept up with the times. When the new limited collection of their Complete Salon Manicure came out and, after I snagged all the ‘Hidden Treasures’ I could find, I got this one next…
This is ‘Silver Lining.’ Right off, the photos do not show a true, accurate representation of this polish. In real life, the sparkles are rich and iridescent in a silver base. It looks like it could be watery, but it wasn’t. Not quite.
Ah, that’s a better photo! But sadly, I only took one of it as my pedicure. I have no reason why. Maybe I just forgot. :/
I’ll definitely swatch this one again as a manicure. It’s a new favorite even though it is a lighter color.
And, along with this look, I did a manicure. Here’s a polish that isn’t quite so bad for a cheapy, nail supply polish…
This photo shows the orange shimmer in this polish. It has, what I would label, a bright coral base.
Not a photo rich blog this time. I guess I didn’t want any overkill on photos, this time. Hmmmm….
So, I’ll wrap up by saying that this brand is ‘Cleopatra’ and the name of this shimmery coral is ‘Reconcilable Indifference.’ That’s a fun play on words. This polish wasn’t a total wash-out like other cheapy, nail supply polishes. It actually did OK with 2 coats. It’s a bit watery but came out to my liking.
And my Mom is still one of the most beautiful women I know.
Have you ever bought a cheap polish that you ended up loving? Can you actually get the owner of a nail supply shop to sell to you, even without a nail license?
