♥ FINALLY A good use for SH Xtreme Wear Lime Lights ♥

Sally Hansen X-treme Wear in Lime Lights - 2 coats layered over Wet n' Wild Burgundy frost
 & 1 coat of TC

I knew this Sally Hansen polish would be sheer, but I was a little miffed at what to do with it. I t looks great over black, and blue, of course, but over this burgundy color from Wet n' Wild; it is soooo cool. I first saw a look like this on Friday Night; a beautiful sheer blue color layered over a reddish burgundy polish. HERE is what I'm talking about. I thought I should try out this Sally Hansen polish as I have had this for a long time and not worn it yet, (and I try to use polish's that are somewhat easily available.)

??? What do you do with your sheer polish's that may be "dud's" ???

I think it looks really cool, I am not sure what to compare it to. It looks brown, copper, burgundy, blu and green. I have a trillion photos added to this post and hope someone else trys it out and can write up a better description than moi.

I will add that I am sooooo happy nail blogs exist, ever since the very first time I found one - I have compiled so many neat ideas for future manicures, nail art ideas, and have seen and read so many great posts. ( and MUA, too ) My goodness, I will never run out of ideas! I think if I starting doing all these neat ideas, the polish combos and nail art, I would have nail looks for a lifetime!

So thanks to everyone who puts their ideas out there!

You have absolutely gorgeous nails and hands! Great combo of colors although I like the burgundy by itself. How do you maintain your nails like that? They look super thick and healthy!

Thanks :)

So many posts that you do are polishes that I already have and have recently worn; it's so funny! I was wondering what to do with Lime Lights as well, since 4 coats is only startinggg to be opaque. Thanks!

I Looooove this color combination!!! What a fantastic idea! I'm only sad that I don't have the colors to recreate it :-(

I have lime lights too.
I happened to have a green/gold duo chrome pigment that I got from my art store. I just scooped a bit of that into the bottle... and ~*voila~* instant opacity improvement!.. granted it's not exactly the original color, but really, with the horrific pigmentation the original color had, it was either a bazillion layering tricks, this, or nothing. :)

Love the combinations you come up with. This is a gorgeous one! Hope I remember to do this. I never thought about layering like this till the nail blogs. That's been a big help.

GReat suggestions, I have this polish too and knew it would have to be layered but haven't busted it out yet.
