Sally Hansen Salon - unknown - deep purple/burgundy

Application: Smooth
Coats: 2
Source: Dollar Tree, and unfortunately, the bottle was missing the sticker, so I have no idea what it's called.
Comments: Another beautiful vampy color with a purple/burgundy base. When I was younger, I never would have thought to wear colors like this, but I think my skin actually likes them. Of course, not hubby-approved, lol! I really like that Sally Hansen builds shine into so many of their polishes. I may invest in some drying drops as I feel like I'm wasting topcoat when I use it on colors like this.

I love these square bottles and rubber-grip caps. Why, oh why did they change the design?

Here I'm trying to show the color better.

Then, of course, I decided to have some fun with other topcoats.
From L to R: The SH for this post
Orly - Prisma Gloss Gold
Borghese - Cristallo Shimmer
Cover Girl - City Lights
Sally Hansen - Hidden Treasure

What's that on the pinky you ask? I added white to the original color for some (ugly) nail art just to see the contrast before I put on the topcoats. Topcoats in same order as above
And then in reverse order

  1. So, should we come up with a name for that vampy color? ;) It is wickedly gorgeous.
    And your nails look awesome!!!

  2. Kimberly, I'm kinda hoping someone will recognize it and tell me what it's called. I don't want to give it an identity crisis by naming it and later finding out its real name.

  3. I understand why you had fun but that looked sooooooooo good on you!

  4. Gorgeous!

    Wait I might own that...I'll check my stash when I get home.

  5. I'm dying to get my hands on a bottle of SH Hidden Treasure! Love that vampy color also :)

  6. I like the color topped with City Lights!

    I bought the same bottle at DT and mine was labeled "Pat on the Black"

  7. I love a deep dark color in the Summertime, and I'm with you that bottle is great!

  8. HT makes everything look that much more beautiful! Thanks for the swatches...
