Sally Hansen Nail Prisms!

Soooo I went to Ross lately and found THREE of the Sally Hansen Prism sets!  One for me and two for swapssss.  If my second swap proposition doesn't go through, I'll add it to my Blog Sale :)

All I can say is WOW!  I love these :)  I'm all about my pink holos!  Check 'em out:

First up: Ruby Diamond:

Ruby Diamond is a deep pink's loveeeeely.  It goes on kind of thin and took 3 coats to become opaque, but when it got there it was amazinnggg!  It's not as linear as some of the other holo's I've seen but it's awesome nonetheless.

Next is Blush Diamond, another pink holo!

Blush Diamond is very similar to Ruby Diamond, but a little lighter!  It's also pretty thin and needs three coats.  The formula on these is pretty great for SH, though! 

Here is a comparison of Ruby Diamond and Blush Diamond, side by side, on a nail wheel so you can see the difference between the two:

Look at that fab holo!  On the left/top Ruby Diamond, on the bottom/right Blush Diamond
Those are my two faves of the whole set--I'm so glad to have 'em!

Here's the next one, a duochrome called Lapis Amethyst:

Lapis Amethyst is a beautiful lavendar/gray/blue duochrome.  This one I believe I used 4 coats on because it's a little frosty and my nails have a lot of ridges.  If I would've used ORLY Ridgefiller I probably could've been fine with three coats!  This is one of the prisms available in my giveaway!

I should mention that I was so excited to swatch these that I didn't do a very good job cleaning up and my cuticles look kind of like poop...I apologize for that!  However I ended up getting lazy and didn't want to swatch the last two, so I did them both on one hand:

Silver polish: Diamond, Cream polish: South Sea Diamond

Diamond is a lot prettier on the nail than I thought it would be.  It's a multi-dimensional scattered holo super fine silver glitter.  I can't tell if it's in a gray base or if the shimmer/glitter is just so dense that it makes it look that way!  I really, really like this polish a lot and wish it'd come in the larger bottle!
Diamond is a suitable name for this
South Sea Pearl is a pretty iridescent, frosty pearl-colored polish.  It took four coats to become opaque (I just slapped it on, so this up close pic below doesn't do it justice) and it has a beautiful shimmer to it. However, it's got just a bit of a yellowish tinge to it, that no matter what I do, I just think it looks off with my skin tone!  So I also added this one to my giveaway! lack of clean up is evident
Wam blam!  Those are some fab polishes obtained for not very much money!  Look out for these at Ross...that's the only place I know to get them so far.  I'll let you ladies know if I find any more for those who'd like this collection!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a chance to win South Sea Pearl and Lapis Amethyst!
