Sally Hansen Arabian Night

Spring 2008 when Sally Hansen Arabian Night polish came out I was about 6 months away from entering my polish addiction. I did not care about nail polish. I never looked at collections. If I wanted a nail polish I usually just found Maybelline or Cover Girl one in the color I needed and moved on. Then, when I got into nail polish I started reading posts on Sally Hansen Arabian Night, and I fell in love with this color. The problem was by that time it could not be found anywhere.

This is a problem in the nail polish world. When it comes to drugstore limited edition polishes, when they're gone they're likely gone forever. It's very hard to find them. I always had this polish in the back of my mind, but never felt I would find it. A few weeks ago, I saw someone post on it on MakeupAlley, I decided to just google on a whim to see if anything came up. What came up was great! I found it! I found it for $2.99 too on Cassie's Cosmetics. I've used Cassie's Cosmetics before to buy Sally Hansen Nail Prisms and other long discontinued products, but I was so thrilled to find Arabian Night on here. I had not seen it there before. Of course, I swooped it right up! It felt good to quell a 4 year lemming.

Arabian Night


Arabian Night is a medium-dark grape with a golden glass fleck shimmer.

This is gorgeous! You know me cool-toned colors paired with golds/coppers/bronzes is so my thing. Polish companies...do you hear me again? I love the richness of this color, and I am over the moon that it is now mine. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this, then again I've been wanting it for so long how could I?

I really recommend Cassie Cosmetics to those of you looking for some of the polish nostalgic favorites. There are so many discontinued products from different brands on that site with very reasonable prices. This was my second purchase from them and on top of that they ship fast too!

Happy Monday!

  9. Gorgeous purple! It almost reminds me of Are Mermaids Real? from the Wet N' Wild Spoiled line. But this one is darker and I like it more because of that.

    Wow this is pretty.  It kind of looks like a Spoiled polish I have, that I can't remember the name of now! :)

  18. YEP. Totally just bought this one, haha. I'd given up on ever finding this polish so you helped kill my lemming too. :D

  19. What a total beauty! Perfect name for it too--and so awesome that it lived up after pining for it for so long!

    I know what you mean about just barely missing the boat sometimes. Nfu Oh is very rare where I live, but there was this huge specialty sale of them literally right downstairs from my apartment not a month or two before my polish addiction really got started. Now I'm kicking myself for not buying a ton of them when I had the chance!
