#CSMTKO Sally Hansen Nail Polish Complete Salon Manicure

I was sent:

  • “Red my Lips” which is a bright red basic red
  • “Pat on the Black” which is a rich black with undertones of insanely deep dark purple
  • “Jaded” which is a basic mint
All three are creams. No shimmer. No glitter. And that’s just it. The shades are super basic. They’re good but they’re verging on boring. But I think that was the point of the colors that they chose to send us, there’s nothing outright to dislike about them.

I went through the colors listed online and there aren’t a lot I’m super excited about. OR they are a match for something I already own like Jungle Gem which is a deep teal.

“Please sea me” or “Water Color”  are the most appealing of the available shades to me.  But both seems like a summertime color … and we’re not yet at summer. :) The red I’ll probably wear around Christmas.

The quality is good and the nail polishes do last well though. I just wish they were a little more adventurous in their colors.

The good news is that these are “3 Free” when it comes to ingredients

Zoya “Lotus” with Essie “A Cut Above” and Sally Hansen Crackle polish in “Antique Gold”

I DO think that Zoya’s “Lotus” looks better with a top coat. Particularly Essie’s “A Cut Above” pink glittery top coat would be my choice.

It draws attention to some of the pink undertones that Lotus has but are hard to see. I still feel like this isn’t a very spring color for some reason. Maybe because I’m personally interested in pastels, golds and neons for spring. :/ :)

“Foiled Again” – gold foiling or gold leaf on clothes & nails

“Foiled again” get it? Ok, that would make more sense if I had previously written about gold foiling or even any kind of gold on clothes, right?

Apparently I’ve been getting into golds lately. As exhibited by both some recent clothing purchases as well as nail polish choice.

OOTD - gold foiled OOTD - gold foiled

Outfit Top to bottom (click images for a larger version):

  • Earrings: Kohl’s daisy fuentes® Gold-Tone Hammered Drop Earring Set I had removed the chain portion of the coin style earrings and they look better.
  • Tank: Talbot’s Outlet (one of my recent gold purchases) cream with gold foil streaks.
  • Wrap: Tabot’s Outlet (in the fall) it’s a heathered cream linen that’s a perfect weight for spring and fall. Very versatile.
  • Bracelet: thrifted.
  • Jeans: Walmart (shhhh … why do I end up with jeans from there?)
  • Shoes: Lauren Conrad leopard print ballet flat from Kohl’s. Loving these, they also go with a LOT.

Then there was the yoga capris I bought that had a foil leopard print pattern. This wasn’t actually on purpose. It was more because I didn’t like the pairs that had funky color tops and they didn’t have a plain black and I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket:

Then there are the nails.

Essie "A Crewed Interest" Spring 2012 color and Sally Hansen Crackle in "Antique Gold" Peachy Pink and gold

  • Three coats of Essie in “A Crewed Interest” which is a Spring 2012 color.
  • Topped with a single stripe of Sally Hansen Crackle polish in “Antique Gold”

It’s a nice subtle effect that reminds me of gold leaf. And the peachy pink is like a less sheer version of Zoya’s Lulu. That “point shoe pink / peach” I had been looking for for years and suddenly found. Repeatedly apparently.

The gold crackle is actually a little preview of something I’m going to do a giveaway on sometime in the next month. So if you don’t normally read my blog, you might want to stay tuned by either subscribing to the rss, the emails or my twitter or youtube channels!

Are you wearing more gold lately? Is this a trend or just a weird accident that I’ve recently purchased more than one item that was gold foiled?

Next thing you know I’ll own a gold sequin mini skirt…. uhhh probably not anytime soon (though they are CUTE on other people!)
