Layering Experiment No. 7 – Sally Hansen Black Tie & Hard Candy Pixie
This post is short and sweet because I am T-I-R-E-D! I went from being at the salon from 10:30am-5:30pm straight into working my midnight shift at 10pm the same night at my regular job. This new morning/midnight schedule of mine is going to take some getting used to.
I did a quick layered mani before I went to bed on Thursday night that I’ve been wearing for a few days now, and or course I got some sheet marks that I didn’t notice until I edited my pictures. What can ya do?
Sally Hansen – Black Tie & Hard Candy – Pixie
I started out with 2 coats of the newish Sally Hansen Diamond Strength polish called Black Tie, it’s a gorgeous dark/blackened teal and purple duo chrome. I then layered 1 coat of Pixie (holo glitter explosion!) by Hard Candy over it.
I know this picture is a little blurry, but this was the best photo I had to show off the duo-chromatic flash. This polish combination is incredibly camera-shy, trust me when I say that the duo chrome shows up much more strongly in person.
Pixie was sent to me in a polish care package from my girl Dana. I really love the micro holographic glitter, and this polish looks AMAZING layered over black. My friend Jacqui mentioned on twitter that this reminded her of galaxy nails, and I can see it. Though this look was much easier to achieve, no sponging involved! ^_^
If you want to see some pictures of Sally Hansen Black Tie on its own you should check out Nicole’s gorgeous swatches over at Nightly Nails or Mary’s swatches at Body and Soul. I blame both of them for me lemming after this polish so bad.
That’s it for today, and holy cats are my nails getting long again! I’m hoping that I get adjusted to my new schedule quickly because I have SO many polishes to show you all. Including the The Legends collection by A England, and a TON of custom frankens I’ve been snatching up on Etsy (that place is like crack to a nerdy polish addict)!
For now I’ll leave you with this picture of one of the fur kids, Clarence. My roomie put his hat on Clarence and it’s basically too adorable for words. Ignore his disgruntled gaze, he totally loved it.
