Sally Hansen Red White & Hue

Hey guys! Today’s post is on a shade released last year from Sally Hansen. It’s one of eight shades from their Color Frenzy line. I actually thought about featuring this today being that it’s President’s Day. The color combo is on the patriotic side and I thought it’s quite fitting. Here’s Sally Hansen Red White & Hue.

Sally Hansen Red White & Hue

Red White & Hue is a glitter shade made up of red, white and blue hex glitter of 2 different sizes suspended in a clear base. The glitter is the non-shiny type or not what one would associate with glitter typically. Formula is beautiful for a glitter shade and it dried pretty fast. The glitter pieces applied pretty evenly, which is a pleasant surprise since glitter shades like this can apply sparse where you may have to end up fishing for some pieces out from the bottle. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

This is definitely a nice one to have from a drugstore brand!

This should be available generally wherever Sally Hansen is retailed.

Sally Hansen Drama Sheen

Hey guys! Today’s post is on a newer shade from Sally Hansen. This actually reminds me of another shade from the same line called Blow Bubbles but a purple version of it. I like this shade better though because the duochrome property is a bit stronger. Here’s Sally Hansen Drama Sheen.

Sally Hansen Drama Sheen

Drama Sheen is a light purple with pinkish lavender shimmer. It looks like a duochrome to me with the pretty flash. As expected, the pretty flash is best observed under direct sunlight. This shade is pretty sheer but buildable. Formula was leaning on the watery side ever so slightly but it dried pretty fast. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Sally Hansen Hypnautical

Hey guys! Today’s the day I have my biometrics appointment in the city. It’s for legal paperwork and stuff. I hope it’s fast since the appointment they gave me is at noon. Lunch time! My husband will be driving me there (cause it’s in the city and I’m a scaredy cat with city driving) and we’ll probably grab some lunch while we’re there. It’s been a while since I featured a Sally Hansen shade so here’s Sally Hansen Hypnautical.

Sally Hansen Hypnautical

Hypnautical is one of their newer shades that I was most excited about. It’s a flakie glitter and I love those! This shade is made up of regular and flakie iridescent glitter in a tinted green base. While it is quite stunning in the bottle, not so much alone on the nails. I thought the green tint would come through more, but sadly no. This is definitely best used other shades, especially darker ones such as black or blue. Formula was pleasant to work with and it dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

I’ll have to revisit this one again over other dark opaque shades, but at least this shows y’all what it looks like on its own.

Sally Hansen Blow Bubbles

Hey guys! Happy Friday! Today’s post is on one of those new shades from Sally Hansen’s Triple Shine line. It’s a softer, lighter shade that’s perfect any time of the year really. Here’s Sally Hansen Blow Bubbles.

Sally Hansen Blow Bubbles

Blow Bubbles is a light pink that struck me as being duochrome a little bit (but not really). It shows a teeny flash of bright pink and I was actually expecting purple. But it’s still a pretty, light shade. This is a good one to use over other shades I think, like crème pink or purples and such. Formula was pleasant to work with. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.

I contemplated using this for my wedding mani, but I think I’m going with a holo still. :)

Sally Hansen Make Waves

A shade from Sally Hansen’s recent Triple Shine line, this shade has got the beauty world a-buzzin’. Here’s Sally Hansen Make Waves.

Sally Hansen Make Waves

Make Waves is a stunning shade that makes me think of beaches and mermaids. This shade makes me want summer to start right NOW. It’s a duochrome, but not a strong one. I see some hint gold in this green when the light hits it just right. The formula is a little bit on the watery side, but very easy to work with. Shown is 3 thin coats with no top coat.

I’m actually really excited about this simple shade surprisingly. Have you tried any of the shades from their Triple Shine line?
