Sally Hansen Pink Diamond Nail Prisms


 I finally wore pink for pink Wednesday's and I am actually going to blog about it before Wednesday is over! I am an avid young go-getter. I didnt really need to add as many photos as I did to this post, but I took so many......

This is 2 coats of Sally Hansen Nail Prisms in Ruby Diamond layered over 1 coat of an un-named Sally Hansen Chrome polish. I had 3 of these Ruby Diamond polish's, One I bought at a garage sale 7 years ago, the other two I found at a dollar store in my town 2 years ago. Most of these Sally Hansen Nail Prism polish's are sheer - but awesome - and need to be layered or 4 to 6 coats are needed for opacity. I tested this on my pinky and it would need 4 coats to cover any bare spots and hide VNL.


I used a coat of another awesome Sally Hansen polish, there is no name on his one but it is a bright pink, the same base colour as this Sally hansen Nail Prism polish. On the left is 2 coats of Ruby Diamond layered over the pink chrome and on the right is just 1 coat of the pink chrome polish.

I have read that top coat diminishes the holo-ness of some of these prismatic polish's.... I cant see any difference, as I skipped TC on every other nail.

The TC thing i think is a myth i use tc with my holos and looks the same... not big deal.

You're right I don't see a difference between the nails with or without the TC, thank you ^_^

So pretty! I used to have that Chrome polish, but I gave it away to a friend because I never used it. Pretty sure it's called 'Ruby Chrome' :) ♥

I can't tell the difference between top coat and no top coat. I always use a top coat. Love those Sally Hansen Nail Prisms. I have a few. Love them layered.

Beautiful! I'm in love with that color but I can't find it anywhere. So sad!

Holo polishes are beautiful, but pink-holo polishes are just amazing! :D

I always use TC. But why do some holos drag so badly and others not? Weird.

Yay I love pink wed and I love your choice it's stunning wish I could find this at a yard sale.

I've heard the same topcoat rumor. I don't believe it and I'll probably add topcoat to my holos anyway.

The color is simply stunning in the last photo! I'll have to find some of these Nail Prisms because all the ones I have seen are soooo pretty!

Hi :) I like the last photo best, the one with the "weird lighting" *gg*
I own a few Sally Hansens Nail Prisms and you HAVE to try them over black!

They are quite sheer, that's true, the holos as well as the duochromes (if you can get your hands on turquoise opal or amber ruby or garnet lapis, try those over black, you will be amazed by the duochromyness, turquoise opal for example changes from blue to green to pink to gold and in some angles even green, it's the most amazing polish!
I've only ever seen one brand doing the same finishes, it's an Australian brand called ozotic) .... but if you layer your holo over black you will be stunned by the effect!
Some are a bit streaky, but if you apply them carefully, you'll soon get the hang of it.
