Spring is nice. Warmer weather, sunshine and more importantly, soooo many new polishes for me to try. Going past Shoppers today I thought I'd better try something from the new Smooth and Perfect line from Sally Hansen. I've liked a lot Sally Hansen's, especially the Complete Salon Manicure line so even though the colours weren't mind-blowing, I gritted my teeth and picked up a pretty sky blue, Air.
What I didn't notice about this one in the store was that it's bordering on a frost! The first coat of this was so super sheer and frosty, I was all ready to be sad. The blue was so pretty in the bottle, I decided to persevere and it actually layers up really well. The pictures below are three coats and you'll see it's opaque and most of the frost has disappeared, hooray! Air being the perfect sky blue, I though I'd then add some clouds and man, I'm glad I did. Using Rimmel French White Tip Liner as it has a nice thin brush, I just dotted on cloud like shapes. Looks like a perfect summer's day.
The Verdict: Despite my initial reservations, Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in Air really is pretty smooth and perfect. The blue is so light and pretty, it can stay. I also really like the Rimmel french tip, it's going to continue to be my nail air white, especially since the white is so opaque. Yay clouds!
I love the clouds :)ReplyDelete
I've been wondering about the Smooth & Perfect. I'm not a big fan of blue but now I gotta try Air.
I love this blue! It really is the perfect sky blue colour. The clouds are too cute. I'll have to try this out one day. :)ReplyDelete
You should try it, it's really easy to do. Just dot dots together, easy peasyDelete
