Hey There Polished People!
I’m glad everyone enjoyed my Bubba pictures last time! It is so fun showing what a weirdo he is. Minnie is perfectly strange too, but Bubba seems to take the cake as far as popularity goes. 🙂 Speaking of dogs, on Easter my family got together at my aunt’s house after church and had a delicious dinner (ham, baked potatoes, buns, jello with mandarin oranges, angel food cake with strawberries… mm mm MM!) and the weather was just perfect! It was 77 here on Sunday so we sat out in her yard and she has two dogs. Macy is some type of golden retriever with long reddish hair, and then Sadie is a little chihuahua mix and is just hilarious!! That dog was chasing this bouncy ball, like one of those kids’ balls with Winnie The Pooh on it or whatever, and she’d chase the ball around, hitting it with her nose/mouth and everyone once in a while she’d get too far ahead of herself and PLOP she’d roll right over the ball and end up in front of it! Then she’d get her little front feet up on the ball and back up, pulling the ball along with her feet. It was so funny and cute! We all had a good time visiting and watching those dogs play in the backyard. My only cousins with kids live out of state so this is the only entertainment we have 😉
Today I have some nail polishes to share with you that I got for review from Sally Hansen. Their PR person so generously sent me several Salon Effects nail polish strip sets, and three bottles of polish. Today I am going to share two bottles of polish with you- Hi Ho Silver and Gilty Party. Ready to see them?
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Hi Ho Silver
Surprise!! Hi Ho Silver is…. SILVER!!! It’s a pretty, super metallic silver and is super shimmery and bright.
The application here was good! It’s a little thin with the first coat, but after two it was great. I didn’t have any trouble applying it, but you’ll see that it really showed my patch job on my index finger. If you have ridge-y nails, you’ll probably need a ridge filler because I bet it would show those imperfections, too. These Complete Salon Manicures are supposed to be shiny enough to not need topcoat, etc, but I still used topcoat, because even though you could wear these by themselves, I wouldn’t. I like my top coat.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
If you don’t have a good silver, Hi Ho Silver would definitely fit the bill. I think it might stamp well, too, but I’ll have to try it and get back to you on that. I’m not completely sure due to the shimmery nature, but I’ll report back after I’ve tried. The color is a nice bright silver, the formula is non-problematic, so this gets a Yes, Please! from me if you are in the market for a silver! 🙂
The next polish I’ll share with you is Gilty Party
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Gilty Party
Gilty Party is a hard color to describe. To me, it’s a rose gold metallic polish with tiny reddish/copper shimmer particles. If you click on and enlarge the last picture with the darker lighting I think you’ll see those little flecks that I’m talking about. This color was really quite pretty on my nails, but in these pictures I think it looks ugly. I think this may be a color that people either love or hate. You’ll have to let me know what you think. 🙂
The formula for Gilty Party is identical to Hi Ho Silver. Non-problematic, opaque in two coats, nice formula.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
This is a polish I could live with or without. It’s unlike anything I have, which is nice, but it’s not something that I think I’ll be wearing all the time. I tend to like metallics best when used alongside cremes, and I don’t know how I would pair this so it leaves me a little perplexed. It’s definitely unique though, in my book at least. I’m leaving my final verdict on this undecided, just because I’m pretty apathetic about it.
Neither of these blew my socks off, as you can tell, but the formula was good and I don’t have anything bad to say about them. If you try them, you’ll have to let me know what you think. If I didn’t have other silvers I would particularly like Hi Ho Silver as a basic polish, but I do have other nearly identical polishes so… I just don’t “need” it. Stay tuned though, because whereas these two didn’t completely blow my mind, the next two products from my PR package I’m going to share DID! 🙂
Let me know what you think about these polishes! I hope you all had a nice Easter last weekend whether you celebrated or not. As always, thanks for reading and commenting and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
