Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Amber Ruby


This is one of my favorite polishes of all time. It's one of the best shades to come out of the Nail Prisms line, and in my opinion, one of the best duochrome polishes ever made. It seems like there are quite a few purple/silver/green type duochromes (like Zoya Ki) and a lot of blue/purple duochromes (Like Sally Hansen HD Laser), but not very many of these red/orange/gold/green type multichrome colors.

Sally Hansen Nail Prisms #08 Amber Ruby. Is this not the most gorgeous thing you've ever seen? It's so richly colored, it's like fall in a bottle. It's even perfect for Christmas- doesn't it look like a warm crackling fireplace, green garland and golden ornaments? The color shift in this is very strong and very dramatic. It can go from red and amber to all green and gold in a split second.

  2. so gorgeous! I had a bunch of Prisms, including this one, years ago and foolishly gave them away. I've got Burgundy Orchid and Ruby Emerald again however and I'm never giving them up!

  4. Aweome! You're right, there are so many cool-toned duochromes, and very few warm ones. I'm so excited for fall! I think I might go throw on a warm toasty color. :)

    How many coats was this?

  6. After Turquoise/Opal, this was my very close second favourite prisms polish. I went through about 4 bottles of this back in the day and should have hoarded more. :)

  15. Thank you so much for swatching multi/duo-chromes, especially Nail Prisms. It makes my heart happy!
    I have a request, can you provide picture spam for "Turquoise Opal". It is my favorite polish of all time and I can never look at it enough!
