1 coat of White Dove layered over Black with 1 coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top coat
I love opalescent polish's. In low lighting and dim lighting, they are eye-catching and beautiful. I have seen bottles of beyond perfect at a few discount stores recently, but they were all pure white or other boring beige colors. I happened to get lucky ( sort of ) when I spotted these at my favorite store in town and picked up the three posted below.
I know that when I was in the USA in summer, I spotted quite a few lovely and STRONG opalescent polish's at Walmart, Love my nails 'Starling' (?) and one from Perfect 10.... I have put in a few special requests from other bloggers to see what these look like swatched.
One of my all time favorite looks is a sheer opalescent polish like this one, layered over black.
Also; this is the last of my natural, real nail photos..... I neeeed to put some beautiful artificial nails on ASAP! I am happy to report that I only cut myself twice, but today I had a somewhat painful finger injury under my nail. ..... and I don't want to push my luck! Thanks for all the kind words about my real nails♥
I picked up these 3 older Sally Hasen Beyond Perfect polish's at my favirote store in my town.... I was afew days late for these as they had restocked their older polish and I missed out of first pick. But wow- did I ever find some beauties!!!!
I LOVE THAT STORE!
Below - Sally Hansen Beyond Perfect Fresh Lavender, Cinnamon Incense and White Dove
wooooooow - I love the opalescence of White dove in this photo.
Fresh Lavender has a subtle flash, and Cinnamon Incense has a subtle golden micro-shimmer
...... and a few more photos
A PSA from Deez Nailz;
I have seen some hauls recently with Sally Hansen Nail Prisms in Diamond - You can layer 1 COAT of this over ANY polish and the base color will show through while creating a brilliant and stunning HOLOGRAPIC polish!
Below; on the very left of my thumb nail is a coat of Sally Hansen Nail Prism's in Garnet Lapis, and on the right is 1 coat of White Dove. I always use Garnet Lapis Nail Prism polish to gauge the flash in other polish's. Garnet Lapis has the strongest flash and MULTI-chrome of all the polish I own.
I fell like i use Nail Prisms this polish Garnet Lapis alot, but I only need ONE thin coat layered over any darker polish to create this beautiful multi chrome effect. Thats why if you are in the USA, and you live near a Dollar tree you need to get your bunz there ASAP - becuase I read on MUA they have Older Sally Hansen polish's in stock!!!!!
The flash pink/aqua green flash is not as strong in White Dove as it is in Garnet Lapis. It base color leans way more green/teal. I do plan on frankening with this by adding some of the White Dove to Clear.... just for fun! I think it will be a very pretty sheer polish.
