I really liked the summer Sally Hansen HD collection. I loved all the sparkly duochrome colors. The only issue with them is they are SO sheer! One of my favorites was LCD, but it's so sheer I don't know hot to wear it really without compromising the true color.

I lost track, but I believe this is 5-6 coats of polish to achieve opacity. That is insane and ridiculous, but I love the way it looks that way. This is a light bright pink with glass fleck glitter that flashes violet and blue. I adore this the way it is, but there is no way I'm doing 5-6 coats of it. I guess I'll have to find a suitable pink to layer it over to maintain it's actual color.
On to the Sparkle & Duochrome giveaway winner! Thank you all for participating in this giveaway. I had so many entries!
The winner is......
Congrats Amanda!!! Amanda has a blog Fiercely Fresh Fingertips
I will be posting a holiday giveaway shortly for US residents. Be on the lookout for it after Halloween!
That's such a pretty color!ReplyDelete
I have seen the displays for Sally Hansen HD polishes and they all look so pretty. I gotta get me a few! :0)
Maybe you could layer it over a similar pink? I agree with you - they're deceptively sheer. I have the blue one and I always have to layer it over black.ReplyDelete
Wow, that's a lot of coats for a polish, I would franken it with a more opaque pink, or swap it :)
:O whoa cool THANK YOU!!! i've seriously never won anything before..and mac bad fairy was the only one i am missing from the collection!ReplyDelete
congratulations on SO many followers!!! we enjoy reading your posts, i know i do. keep up the great work!
ps - LCD is such a pretty color and you're bound to find the right pink to layer it with
Congratulations Amanda! I agree with you, I really enjoy this blog and Steph's writing. She deserves all the followers she's got... and more!ReplyDelete
I love the HD collections too, I only wish I had Opulent Cloud and the other LE polishes that were released with it. I actually already have the ones that were in the giveaway, so if I had won, I would have back-ups! lol
I love the color so girl and cute :)ReplyDelete
I also tagged you in my recent post on my blog [award]. http://www.necessary-nails.blogspot.com
Congrats Amanda! I love this HD pink, so pretty!ReplyDelete
LCD is definitely one of my favs. The HD's remind me of the sheer Savvy's, you need 50-11 coats to get them opaque :(ReplyDelete
Leslie- Thanks. I've actually seen these in clearance bins some places, so you may want to check them out.ReplyDelete
Megan- I'll try to find a pink to match with it. You're so right they are "deceptively" sheer!
Jackie- I don't want to swap it. I love it to much I think I'll just have to layer it.
Amanda- I'm glad I can help you complete your MAC NP collection from villains stuff! Thank you for the nice comments too :)
Donna- Aww thank you for your kind comment. I really appreciate it.
necessary- Thanks for the tag!
Freshie- Thanks! It is pretty if only it wasn't so sheer!
Enamel Girl- Ugh..lol 50-11 coats. I know it's ridiculous!
I just wanted to say that today I am wearing Laser for the first time. OMG! It's gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I was really nervous with the first coat because it's so thick and streaky, and yet the color is sheer. The second looked so much better, still vnl, but not streaky. The third was opaque for most of my nails, I still had to touch up two of them.
So, to recap, still takes a bit of work to get opacity, not as bad as LCD, but the payoff is sooooo worth it.
Try China Glaze Sugar High under it and it looks AWESOME!!ReplyDelete
