Hiyah there lovelies! Today I have four of the new Sally Hansen ColorFoil nail polishes to share with you. I'm sure you may have seen these around, as they generated a lot of interested with the publishing of the press release.
-The colors are very interesting and surprisingly different from the colors that appear on the bottles.
-All of them had good formulas and were very opaque.
-Best results are achieved without the use of a base or topcoat.
-Be sure to lightly buff your nail beds to smooth out ridges prior to application.
-After buffing, be sure to cleanse the nail of all residue and oils.
Titanium Flush is a deep pink color with purple undertones. This one is definitely darker than what the bottle portrays. I used two coats, although it was practically opaque in one. Application was very easy and the polish went on smoothly without any problems.
Leaden Lilac is everything BUT lilac. I am not sure where they got the name, but this one is more of a dusty denim blue with purple undertones. It is very opaque and a one coater. Of course, I still used two because I'm anal like that! Hehe! There was no staining upon removal.
Cobalt Chrome is vivid cobalt blue with teal undertones. I love how bright this one is! Again, the formula was amazing and two coats were more than sufficient. There was no staining upon removal.
Minted Metal is a beautiful darkened mint colored foil with a good formula. This one was also opaque in one coat, but I still used two. This is a really beautiful color.
Overall, these perform better than I expected. We all know how foils can be a big hit or a big fat fail. I think these are pretty decent. I have also tried stamping with a few of them and they work great. I will be showing you some looks using these for stamping soon.
The Sally Hansen ColorFoil polishes can be purchased in drug stores, food stores, and other mass retailers throughout the county. They retail for about $7.99 each.
What do you think of these? Have you gotten a chance to try them? Will you pick any up?
