sally hansen's new polishes are really kickin if you ask me. this is one of my favorite colors in the Xtreme Wear line, purple pizzazz. it's a pretty rich purple jelly with a billion sparkles. this is three coats and i still had VNL (visible nail line) in most lights, but that doesn't bother me. if it bothers you, just use a ridge-filling base coat or a light nude polish as your first layer and it should help with opacity. i don't actually love how this polish wears over time though, which isn't usually a problem for me as I re-paint almost daily, but this guy i had on like four days. it ended up looking dingy and kinda lackluster pretty quickly. i mattified it and i liked it way better. so i'll have to remember that if i want to wear it for more than one day.
flash, less blue IRL
lamp light, accurate color
sun, third day wear
mattified w/ Essie's Matte About You
my totally gangsta purple aviators - very appropriate for this post, no?
