Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Midnight Sky



Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in Midnight Sky. This one was on the display next to Pumpkin Spice- I think it might be a new shade because I don't recall seeing this one before. I grabbed it because it looked a little like Chanel Graphite, but I don't think it's close enough to be a dupe. This is a smoked metallic dark grey base with lots of sparkly, foily silver shimmer. Some of the shimmer seems gold tinted, but the silver color is the most visible.

Despite having a gazillion of these black/silver metallic shimmers in my collection, I'm still drawn to this. Normally I find these colors boring because they've become so common and they're all nearly identical to each other, but this one seems prettier. Sparklier. More crisp and clean looking, not muddled and cloudy.

I tried layering this with some holo topcoat and some blue flakies and that made it even better! I'll have to get the pictures off my camera so I can post that one. It was great.

  4. Okay... Now I have to shag on down to Walgreen's and pick up this polish, too. Might as well... I got all of the other foils so this will round out my little collection very nicely.

    You tell us all about sparkly, holo, flaky awesome then you tell us you have to pull the photos off of your camera? Geeze! What a picture tease. lol
