Sally Hansen CSM Loves Me Not – Prabal Gurung Spring 2012

Meet Loves Me Not, one of the Sally Hansen colors created by Prabal Gurung for Spring 2012.  The other colors in the collection were pretty, but this one really called to me.  It is a blackened glass-flecked purple.  The formula was excellent and I could almost get complete coverage in one coat.  I applied two, which really added depth and sparkle. Here it is with a topcoat of Seche Vite.

I’m trying out a new gallery style of displaying photos – what do you think?  Please click to zoom!


Thanks for reading!

Sally Hansen Plum’s the Word + Pure Ice Busted

This manicure started off as messing around and ended up mesmerizing!  I’m sure people were wondering what the heck was wrong with me when I kept tilting my hands at different angles and admiring my nails.  Duochrome will do that to ya.  I started out with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Plum’s the Word.  It’s a creme muted plum that leans more towards brown than purple.  Application was no problem, and I love this formula’s thick brush!  I can pretty much do each nail in two swipes (one for the pinky).  The rounded tip also helps me get closer to somewhat approximating a clean gap – something that I still need a lot more practice with!  Two coats provided a good opaque base color, I felt like it needed a bit more razzle dazzle.  So I layered it with two coats of Pure Ice Busted.  In the bottle this polish looks like a sheer, watery lilac with pink and gold shimmer.  On top of the Plum’s the Word it looked even more stunning.

These pix were taken after 2 days so you can see a bit of normal tip wear.

Heeey, nice duochrome.

This one really shows the gold and pink shift over the plum base.

Artificial light

Busted is one of those polishes that’s pretty on its own but really comes to life when layered.  I can’t wait to try it with some different base colors!
