Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Coral Amber

Really old pictures of a really old color.  I love these Nail Prisms.  Glad to see that Sally Hansen is getting back on the duochrome/multichrome thing, but still nothing quite like the old ones.

Sally Hansen Nail Prisms in Coral Amber.  This one is a complex color, but it looks so plain here.  In real life, the color shifts are so much more obvious.  There's coral, of course, but multiple types of coral.  Pink-coral, red-coral, orange-coral.  Then there's a sort of pinkish-purplish hazy flash when you go to the extreme end of the pink side, and a green and gold hazy flash when you tilt the polish to the orange side.  This finish is more shimmery and less frosty than some of the other prisms, but it's still just as sheer.  This is four coats and I think it could benefit from a fifth.

Also, quick status update: If you're reading this on Wednesday morning (which I hope you are because I had a weird hiccup with scheduled posts publishing on the wrong date, resulting in blogs from the future!), I'm out of town, away from my computer, and hopefully having fun.  It was sort of a spur-of-the-moment impulsively planned trip, but I think it's going to be worth it (especially after last month's failed trip).  And hey, if the apocalypse is really going to occur on the 21st, I'd prefer to go out with a bang, doing something I love and having a good time! 

That being said, you'll see a few more bare bones picture posts while I'm gone.  I know that's probably annoying, that not everyone likes to look at pictures without reviews (though, for most people it seems to be the other way around!).  It's Christmastime and I've been rather busy with lots of life things, so, sadly, I haven't had as much time or energy to put into blog stuff as I'd like.  That will all calm down after the new year, assuming the sun doesn't explode this week...

Anyway, thanks again for reading and for all the super cool comments you leave me.  You guys are the best part of blogging.  And if I'm not back on here by then: Merry Christmas, blessed Yule, and happy holidays. ♥
