Right now, let's get into these teal polishes, shall we? I applied basecoat with every swatch and I'll let you know about the topcoat as we go. I only have 3 for you today because I didn't have as much time to swatch as normal. I was assembling furniture for my new office so I can have separate space for office and nail art, which is also exciting!
Next is Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear # 280 'Jazzy Jade'. One of the things I love about teals in general is how much variation there can be in the same color family. This is a very green leaning teal also with a subtle shimmer finish. The formula is nice and thin, and is perfectly opaque in 2 coats. It is pictured with a glossy topcoat.
Last for today is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear # 280 'Marine Scene; Another green-leaning teal, but still very different from the last one. The application is nice, though the formula is a little sheer, however it layers well and can be built to opacity in three coats, as pictured below. Unlike the subtle shimmer of the last 2, this polish is chock full of gorgeous shimmery-ness! Also, I did not topcoat this one since I wanted you to feel the natural shimmer effect in full force, LOL!
Before I say goodbye, I have one bit of news and one question for y'all. First, I just bought some China Glaze polish from a lady on Facebook who was selling them in sets of brand new polishes. I got 20 BRAND NEW China Glaze for $50! I'm so excited! She had about 17 or so sets for sale with 9-10 polishes each and I liked them so much I couldn't pick so I told her my top six choices and to surprise me, LOL. Since I don't know what exactly I'm getting or where they will fit into my collection swatching I will probably do separate posts for my newbies. Second, did you guys like seeing a nail art featuring one or more of the polishes swatched that week? Would you like me to do it again, or just move on to the next color family? Let me know, okay?
Which of these did you like best? Anything you're hoping to see in Part 2? Thanks for reading and I'll see you on Wednesday!
*NOTE* - I know that both SH colors say #280. That is because when SH did their reformulation, the Jazzy Jade replaced the Marine Scene. Marine Scene has been discontinued, I'm very, very sad to say :-(
