Sally Hansen - Pacific Blue

Greetings gorgeous! It's my birthday today and I am officially 28 years old! Yikes! I wonder when I'll start feeling like a "real" adult and not like I'm perpetually 19 anymore... Anyway, I decided to put this polish on today, Pacific Blue from Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear line. It's really beautiful and a cult classic. I haven't owned it until the other day and I can't believe I waited this long to get it.

Pacific Blue is a stunning slightly dusty cobalt blue crème with a perfect formula. It's a one coater but I used two here, per my usual routine. Creamy, dreamy and buttery. I love it!

This beauty has unfortunately been the source of much controversy in the beauty world recently, as SH is reformulating a lot of their Xtreme Wear line and this was one of the first to go. The weird thing is that they are keeping the same names for the colors, which is really the only reason I have a problem with the whole thing. I hear the new formula of Pacific Blue is gummy and thin and generally unwearable. Great polishes get discontinued/retired all the time, but the fact that SH is trying to pass it off with the same name is basically deceitful and unnecessary. It's a "first world problem" but hey, the nail polish community is made up of some very passionate folks! If you're interested, you can read more about it on Nouveau Cheap and watch this YouTube video from YoungWildandPolished.

What do you think of this polish? Do you own it? If you don't yet and you want the original formula in all its glory, be sure to hurry to your local drugstore and pick up a bottle or two. The new formula is darker and has a shimmer to it, you can see pics online I'm sure. Have a great day and cheers to another year for the life of Kellie :D Thanks for coming by!
