Sally Hansen Pearl Crush

Good morning lovelies!  It's getting so close to CosmoProf time and I'm so excited to meet up with my blogger and maker friends!  But I have so much to do before then so I'd better get my booty in gear and get on it!  Today I am doing my diligence and sharing some new Sally Hansen polishes.  The Pearl Crush line is made up of 6 sheer toppers full of shimmer and iridescent glitters.  They remind me of mermaid scales!  Now these were a bit harder to work with than I'd imagined, I tried them alone and over a base color.  In the end I decided they looked best on their own.  The large glitters did require some digging.  But the ethereal effect is really pretty so I'd say to try one out and make a decision for yourself since I'm so up and down in my feelings towards them!  You can pick up the Pearl Crush collection in your local drug stores now.  They are $6.99 each.  Ok, let's check out some polish!

Shell & Tell is a lilac based sheer polish full of magenta shimmer and iridescent hexs.  I feel like you can wear this alone or over a base color, but it has to be the right base color.  I tried it over nude and didn't care for it.  So here is Shell & Tell alone, as you can see it's still really sheer.  But it does give a nice pretty nails effect.  The formula and application were both nice.  I did have to dig for some glitters but once I got everything in the bottle mixed up they came out easily enough.  I have on 3 coats of Shell & Tell and 1 layer of topcoat.

Here's Mer-Mint.  I loved this seafoam green in the bottle but it lost that pretty green color on the nail.  It ends up leaning a bit more pink with pink shimmer.  The glitter seemed to be in less quantity so I did have to dig around to get more than one glitter on each nail.  Other than that the formula was easy to work.  I applied 3 coats Mer-Mint and 1 layer of topcoat.

And the last of the Pearl Crush collection that I picked out to share with you is Silver Scallop.  This is a sheer, shimmery grey polish.  I wanted to like this one more, but the heavy shimmer made for a frosty looking polish.  I also found the glitters pretty sparse so I had to do some fishing for them.  I have on 3 coats of Silver Scallop and 1 layer of topcoat.
