Hey everybody! I hope this week is going well for you. :) My sister Melanie and I recently won a fantastic prize of 16 Sally Hansen Triple Shines in a photography contest, and I have some to show you today. I've already posted about Red Snapper and Wavy Blue, so today's post is a continuation. And now that I have so many, I'll probably continue even more. :P
Let's dive right into it, shall we? What an awesome segue...first off I have Dive In!
Ahhhhh, isn't it lovely?? Dive In is a turquoise blue cream that is probably my favorite of all the Triple Shines. It's just so happy. And for all you girls who just LOVE the arrival of spring, this is definitely a springy polish. I am still a bit surprised that I don't have this color already, but I don't. I used two coats of Dive In.
Next I have Kelp Out, which is a medium green crelly. This is a really nice color that I could have posted about in my grassy green comparison if I hadn't wanted to keep my Triple Shines separate. The formula was easy to work with but a little thin for my desire to avoid Mr. VaNeLi, so I used three coats.
And in case you were wondering, Kelp Out is quite the shiny little number. And I know my coloring looks a little strange(r) in these pics, but I wanted to capture Kelp Out correctly. :)
There are several glitter toppers in the Triple Shine line. I layered Sparks Fly, a silver/blue glitter combo, over Kelp Out...and I'm kinda loving this look. It's like Swamp Thing goes to Vegas. This is one coat of Sparks Fly, and the formula was very good on this one.
And if Dive In is my favorite Triple Shine, Flame On has got to be a *very* close second.
Flame On is a BEAUTEOUS hot pink metallic with a subtle shimmer. And it looks just like shiny vinyl on the nail! Seriously...you see a teensy weensy bit of brushtroke stuff in the pics, but you cannot see any in real life. It's just like you wrapped your nails in plastic. LOVE!! I used three coats of Flame On for opacity.
I love the application and colors of Triple Shines, but I have the same problem will all of them: inordinate tip wear. I don't get it. Have you all tried any, and what has your experience been with them? Is it just me having these issues??
Stay tuned for more Triple Shines in all their glory! Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)
The first two are perfect shades for Spring. I like how many different shades and finished this line has. I have yet to try any of them but I'm sure there great.ReplyDelete
I think this line is pretty nice because it's got something for everybody...:)Delete
I love the description of Swamp Thing Goes to Vegas - hee hee!ReplyDelete
Heh heh...I couldn't resist. :PDelete
What a gorgeous threesome!!! I join you in favoring Dive In but for me Kelp Out is the close second and I just love the word Kelp!!! Raised eyebrows? I understand - there is no sane reason to like a word like Kelp but then I also love Sea Otters ;-P! Bummer about the tip wear - I experience this with Essence all the time. Have a lovely Friday xxxReplyDelete
LOLOL...oh, it's quite all right. I love certain words too. My favorite word is chicanery. Isn't that a great word? On the other hand, I detest the word poach. :D And I'm glad you like Dive In as I do. <3Delete
So many gorgeous colors!! Dive In is just the most stunning turquoise, and it looks fab on you! I can see why you love it. :) I'm loving the green and pink too.ReplyDelete
You know, it's strange with this line/collection. You think the colors are basic and unremarkable, but then there's just a little extra something that makes them really pop. :)Delete
