New Sally Hansen Color Therapy Shades!

 *Sent for review*

The Sally Hansen Color Therapy line is really fantastic, if you haven't yet tried it. It's patented argan oil formula moisturizes your nails as you wear it and I do see an improvement in the texture of my nails when I wear it without base coat for a few days. There are some new shades in the line and I have a couple of them for your today. Sally Hansen Reflection Pool is a gorgeous green-blue shimmer. It looks like a normal teal in the bottle, but it really has a great green flash to it, almost like a blue with duochrome green. It also looks like a touch of golden shimmer is living in this pool! This shade is just beautiful and screams summer day at the beach to me.

This is just two coats of Reflection Pool and the application was perfect. Very easy and smooth. I used one coat of the Sally Hansen Color Therapy top coat and it was nicely shiny. It's not marketed as a quick dry top coat, but I find it to be very fast. Maybe not as fast as Seche Vite or Glisten & Glow, but still a very respectable drying time.

Sally Hansen Haute Springs is a nice crimson red creme. It's a great, rich-looking red, perfect for any red lover out there.

This is two coats of Haute Springs. The formula was a little on the thinner side, so I just had to make sure not to load the brush up too much to avoid pooling at the cuticles. I used one layer of Color Therapy top coat.

Sally Hansen Slicks and Stones is a vampy eggplant purple with pink and gold flecks glowing from within. The pink and gold flecks really pop out in the sun, but when I took these pictures, sun was lacking a bit! I can still see the flecks in all lighting conditions though, they don't disappear in low light. 

This is two coats again and the formula was very good. Nice and smooth, with great pigmentation. Topped with the Color Therapy top coat.

These pretty polishes are available now at a drugstore or Target near you! For more information on where to buy, visit https://www.sallyhansen.com.

Lynnderella Friday, Vol. 78!

*Sent for review*

OK time to get this blog back on track, yikes! What a busy couple of months I have had, it's been crazy. It's time for a good Lynnderella Friday around here and today is a great day for it because Lynnderella was actually on the nails of Hailee Steinfeld as she performed on The Today Show this morning!! She wore a Lynnderella called Diamond in Training and you can check out a clip of her performing/get a glimpse of the polish here- http://www.today.com/popculture/see-love-myself-singer-hailee-steinfeld-rock-out-today-plaza-t113853. I think that is a pretty cool accomplishment for Lynnderella!!

Lynnderella Snazzy is a seriously STUNNING polish. Lynnderella describes it as a "charcoal black holographic microglitter with a red metallic glow". The red metallic glow is so strong and contrasts beautifully with the charcoal glitter. The effect in the sunlight is like fire, the holo rainbow and the metallic glow are so strong! Indoors you can see the charcoal gray/black color more, but the red flash is definitely still there and very visible. Overall such a unique polish!

This is two coats of Snazzy. It was gloriously easy to apply and very pigmented. I did use two layers of top coat because I thought it would really bring out the metallic glow.

Lynnderella Picnic is a holo watermelon pink microglitter. It's a nice juicy pink and has a light rainbow flare of holo glitter. Great summer pink for glitter lovers!

This is two coats of Picnic. It was a little thicker than Lynnderellas typically are and I found the first coat to be a little lumpy. The second coat smoothed everything out and was better, but it wasn't as flawless a formula as I have grown accustomed to with Lynns as of late. I used two layers of top coat here as well.

Lynnderella Tra LaLaLa is a "blue-violet shimmered charcoal black holographic microglitter with neon and iridescent flake accents". The charcoal glitter in this looks totally different than in Snazzy, it really has more of a purple-y feel. I love the fun colored accent glitters and flakes, they really pop out nicely. The charcoal glitter is nicely holographic and the whole polish has a rainbow look to it in sunlight.

This is two coats of Tra LaLaLa and one layer of top coat. It was easy to apply and had nice coverage. Every time I read the name of this polish, I sing it to the tune of "Swalla" by Jason Derulo and Nicki Minaj LOL... can't help it.

These three lovely Lynnderellas are available now at http://stores.ebay.com/lynnderella-lynnderella. Lynnderellas are also available on Amazon and StorEnvy.
