Hello lovelies and happy Monday? Today *most likely* marks the beginning of madness at work, so it should be a good one haha. But we only have three more weeks, and then things should be relatively quiet until next year! I’m seriously so stoked. But, that’s not why you’re here so moving on. I’m back with some more swatches for Sally Hansen’s Color Of The Moment campaign, so let’s get to it!

Description: Very light, basically white, grey.

Release Information: Unsure

Number of Coats: Three coats.

Topcoat: One coat of Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Top Coat.

Formula: Chalky and streaky on every coat. Topcoat is highly recommended to smooth this one out.

Dry Time: About ten to fifteen minutes for each layer.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: Man, oh man. I had high hopes for this, because I’m always on the lookout for a good white. But, unfortunately this polish did not fit that bill. This applied too unevenly, and really only smoothed out once topcoated. The final product looks nice, but I have to say that isn’t worth the trouble.

My thoughts: Creme De La Creme applied much better than Get Mod, so I have to give it points for that. But, unfortunately, this was still pretty difficult to apply. I do like this color though and I don’t think I have anything else like it in my collection, so you might see this pop up every once in a while.

My thoughts: Duochrome polishes like this one are part of the reason that I started getting into nail polish almost five years ago. Since then I’ve grown away them, but I’m kind of digging this one! It’s a little brushstroke-y and it bubbled weirdly, but I’d love to try this layered over black.

Name: Teal Good

Description: Teal creme.

Release Information: Unsure.

Number of Coats: Two coats (could possibly be a one coater.)

Topcoat: One coat of Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Top Coat.

Formula: Slightly thicker, but applies easily.

Dry Time: About ten to fifteen minutes for each layer.

Staining: This will stain your cuticles if you aren’t careful! I would recommend doubling up on basecoat too, just in case.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: I have a soft spot for teal polishes, so I knew that this polish would be one of my favorites when I opened the package. Luckily it delivered, because I’m really liking this color! But, this polish is a cuticle stainer so be very careful when applying it. Also, random side note, does anyone else think that the Color Therapy polishes smell like cardboard?

Release Information: Unsure.

Number of Coats: Three coats.

Topcoat: One coat of Sally Hansen ’s Miracle Gel Top Coat.

Formula: Sheer and prone to brushstrokes.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: This polish is very similar to Black And Blue from above, but I do think you could make the justification for needing both. Reflection Pool leans a little bit more on the teal side, which is why I chose it as my favorite of the two duochromes! This one too was sheer and brushstroke-y, but I bet this would look awesome over black.

Now, it’s time for some nail art!

For the first look, I thought it’d be fun to pair the soft pink with the darker duochrome. The triangle pattern is just a random design that I’ve painted before in the past, but I’m liking the bold lines against the grunge-y base!

  1. Start by applying three coats of Creme De La Creme.
  2. Then using some saran wrap, dab on Black And Blue.
  3. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint a detail brush to add on the triangles.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Miracle Gel Top Coat.

Get Mod looks amazing mixed in with the two teals, and ugh. I’m so in love haha! I couldn’t bear to cover the base, so I settled for some subtle polka dots.

  1. Start by applying two coats of Teal Good.
  2. Then paint liquid latex all around your nails.
  3. Use the smoosh technique to add on Get Mod and Reflection Pool.
  4. Peel off the latex / clean up.
  5. Once that’s dry, use a small dotting tool and acrylic paint for the polka dots.
  6. Then, clean up again if necessary.
  7. Finish with a coat of Miracle Get Top Coat.
