I read a review of the Sally Hanson Hi-Definition nail polishes and they looked nice, but every time I saw them in the store they looked boring. Weird, that blue, green, purple etc. would look boring and it's in this really pretty HD deal that's supposed to look dimensional and futuristic and all.
Sally Hanson HD Hi-Res. In my opinion - it's boring!!!
I bought this dark pink because there was no red and you know my pink problem. And I was just bored by the blue, green, purple and yellow.
I'm bored by this too. It doesn't look special, just kind of shiny.
Oh well. It was buy one, get one half off, so I bought another Sally Hanson kind:
Sally Hanson Hard As Nails Extreme Wear - Brick Wall. I love that name.
I've heard that reds can get addictive. I'm feeling it. There are so many different reds, and I thought a brick color would be a nice change, something different.
It is different! It's a much darker red than other reds (although close to my Mandalay Ruby) but not brown in the least, not pink or orange in the least. Picture colonial brick with bright white mortar.
Here's the mortar.
OPI Alpine Snow. Four coats of it. It applied nicely, but I wanted it completely opaque. This does not work as a sheer at all. Streaky.
I was looking for a sheer white, but this didn't turn out to be that so I decided to do that RETRO look that I'll probably never wear.
Guess what? I really like this!! It's just so cool looking. I wish I had some mod dress to wear with it. Sadly, I'm wearing khaki's and a blouse. Anti-mod.
Maybe I'll have an outfit I can wear this with at some point. I actually would wear this again, but it's a special look. It would look nice with a big white ring. Hmmm.... like they have in Annie Sez..... uh oh.... I feel some shopping coming on..... I'm totally building an outfit around these white nails.
