Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Turquoise Opal

Sally Hansen Turquoise Opal. What can I even say about it? It is the crown jewel of the Nail Prisms collection. We all know it, we all love it... It's undeniably one of the prettiest nail polishes ever created.


Sally Hansen Nail Prisms #16 Turquoise Opal. This is four coats. It is sheer, but if you have the patience to wait a few minutes between coats, it will be well worth your time. It starts out turquoise and blue and shifts to every color of the rainbow. Purple, gold, red, pink, green... It's all there. A masterpiece of polish.

  1. FYI: anyone looking for it and finds Rainbow Presents, that is the Canadian release of this shade.
    Why the different name, I don't know!

  2. I've found that putting two coats of this over one coat of a black creme makes it look fantastic!

  3. Burgundy Orchid is my Holy Grail, though Turquoise Opal is a close second. I find using a base coat of black or deep blue helps T.O. look less sheer. I got loads of complements when I wore T.O. with a topcoat of chunky purple glitter. I wish they would bring back colors like this.

  6. Ugh, still kicking myself for not hoarding bottles of this after I went through five bottles back in the day. That was when I only had about 15 bottles of polish in my stash. Thanks for showing us how beautiful this is!

  11. I've found that layering it over black makes all the colours pop more and there's only a need for one or two layers of the Prism, leaving more in the bottle for more manis!

  16. I've wanted this polish so badly for the longest time. And now, seeing your swatches is making me feel like I should just bite the bullet and buy it on eBay. Sigh!

    The last picture is particularly stunning because it looks like you have a blue French tip almost! Love polishes with a multiple personality.

    Great photos - loved how you showed it at several angles. :D

  17. Hi Scrangie!
    Unfortunately I don't have Turquoise Opal, only Garnet Lapis, but it's such a perfect shade!
    Take a loook at this new brazilian collection and try to find Turquoise Opal's dupe :)

  21. The duochrome effect seems stronger here than most polishes of that type I've seen. Is it just the pictures?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow, that's amazing. I haven't seen it around in my neck of the woods though.

  28. I have 9 shades from the Sally Hansen prisms line but not this one, beautiful color. I agree they should release more colors like these, there is obviously a big demand; and next time I will make sure to buy every color.
