From The Vault: Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Diamond
As I was going through some of my folders on my Flickr account I came across these swatches of the vintage Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Diamond that I apparently forgot about, whoops! These pictures are from last August! I was sporting some serious nubbin nails (polar opposite to what I’m sporting currently) and I definitely had my summer tan rocking in full gear. Mmmmm, summer. I’m already wishing for beach weather, only a few more months right?
I used Sally Hansen Nail Quencher and no top coat for these swatches. You’ll want to enlarge all of these photos to their original size to get the full detail of each photo.
Sally Hansen Nail Prisms – Diamond
Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Diamond is a pretty little scattered silver holographic polish. It’s pretty sheer, I used 3 coats here, but I love it just the same. I think this polish would look fabulous layered over a nice creme polish, remind me to try that in the future!
Diamond is shown above with no flash.
Here’s a few shots of Diamond with camera flash. The first photo is taken with flash in normal lighting, and the latter is taken with flash in low light. The holo really comes out to play in the sunlight, but alas is was probably in the middle of the night when I was swatching (what’s new?) so simulated sunlight with camera flash was all I was able to capture at the time.
Here’s a macro shot with no flash, natural lighting.
And here’s one more macro shot, this time with flash. If you haven’t looked at any of the previous photos yet in their original size you’ll at least want to check out the last 2 macro shots. ^_^
That’s it for today. I think I lucked out with Diamond, I found it on eBay last summer as part of a 5 polish bulk buy for only $9.00 with shipping!! If you look at the current prices for Diamond they range from Silly to Ridiculous.
I have two whole days off from both my regular job and the salon this weekend, so I hope to have an EPIC swatching session because I’ve got a backlog like no other taking over the coffee tables in my living room. And I really need to update my spreadsheet. PLUS I just bought 2 more IKEA Helmers, if that gives you any indication of the amount of new goodies I’ve been collecting since my last polish spreadsheet update.
Amanda my dear (one of my BFFs and my polish spreadsheet assistant), we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us.
