Glitter Limited Edition
Sally Hansen X-treme Wear Fall 2013Monday, August 26, 2013Nail A College Drop Out
Friday afternoon I saw a post on Nouveau Cheap about the new Limited Edition Sally Hansen X-treme Wear Fall 2013 Collection and my little polish heart went into immediate hoard mode. I contemplated going to Walgreen's after work to scoop them up, but alas, my body was far more tired than I though, and I fell asleep.
Saturday rolls around, I get up, shower, shave my legs,--possible TMI? I've been avoiding wearing dresses all week b/c I've been too lazy to do so prior to Saturday. Definite TMI--got dressed, and headed over to the hunting grounds.I walk in, removing my $5 sunglasses from my eyes and stroll around to the cosmetics department. AND BINGO! The entire display was untouched! You know, until I got there.
Fast forward to Monday morning and I've got swatches!
I doing these swatches a little differently because I'm still rocking the hell out of my last mani. (Seen here.)
I broke out my handy dandy swatch sticks so let's get started with Frazzle Dazzle. Shall we?
Frazzle Dazzle is multi-sized copper hex pieces and black bar glitter suspended in a clear base.
Glitter Gun- Multi size gold hexagon and multi-size white bar glitter.
Green Rocket - Multi-size emerald green and white bar/hexagon glitter.
Sea-ly String - A bit more complex the the other X-treme Wears I picked up. This guy is multi-size black, blue, and silver haxagon glitter, along with black bar glitter suspended in a translucent blue base.
Spark in the Dark - Multi size black and gold glitter dispersed throughout a clear base.
The entire fall collection has ten lacquers but I only picked up seven. Why? Because one looked like an exact dupe of China Glaze Glitz N Pieces and the other two look like something a four year old would throw together if left to their own devices.
All seven of the shades I picked up are two coats without top coat and require a minute amount of maneuvering on the nail bed--in this case, swatch stick--for full coverage.
By the way I got these on sale for $1.99/bottle! I don't know if these are still on sale, but I've never paid full retail for X-treme Wears at Walgreens.
Looking to stock up on these LE lacquers? May the odds ever be in your favor.
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
