Sally Hansen Purple Diamond

Love of my life. I found the perfect polish. Love at first sight. This is what I'll be wearing most of the summer.
I already have few frankens in my mind, and I'm planning to order a spare bottle.

Oh my god!
Nfu Oh, Gosh and CG true holo effect are ridiculously pricey in my country. You have to order those from ebay, and with the expensive price you have to add shipping and the final sum is too much, even for special polishes those holos are.
When I ordered my bottle of not-so-well-known Sally Hansen Purple Diamond (in comparison with those other holos, very cheap), I wasn't expecting much. Some dull holo wannabe, maybe.
So when I opened my package and put my hands on this beauty I was already in delirium  :)
But when I put it on my nails and went outside on the sunshine, I was speechless.

I hope you will be, too :)







It's really rainbow in every bottle as the sticker on the bottle says. I tried two photos in the shade, too, but the rainbow is visible even then!!!



I have just one little objection: this polish is pretty sheer. I first put three coats and there was still visible nail line. So I removed it next day and on these photos I have creme purple polish underneath, and on top just one thicker coat of Purple Diamond. I think it's better to apply this polish over creme base because this way I'll use it up slower.

One more thing: after a year of fighting with my weak, fragile nails, I gave up and went back to oval shape. Square edges keep breaking and I can't have nails longer than one millimeter. Now they are short, but I expect them to grow much longer because this shape suits them better. I don't especially like this shape and I envy all the girls who have strong nails and can wear them totally square, but I must accept mine as they are, so for now I'll have them this way. My exams are coming so I won't have so much time to take care of my nails, file them three times a day, whenever they break, so this is my easy way out.
Maybe at summer I'll go back to squoval shape.

Do you like the polish? :)
And my new shape of nails? :(

Bye

  2. Absolutely-didly-gorgeous ;D

    Znam na šta misliš, i meni više odgovara ovalni oblik, plus kod mene rastu u lepezu, pa ih nikako ne mogu "namjestiti". Doduše, kod mene ne pucaju, nego se listaju kad narastu do određene dužine. Ali tvoji su lijepi, nemoj biti žalosna.
    I daj link odakle si naručila ovog ljepotana :) Ebay?

  4. Ö PRELEPO! I ja biiii! Podsjeca me malo na DS Original, ma prelepo, nemogu imati previse holo lakova nikako! I bas mi se svidja novi oblik noktiju. <3

    I meni su nokti pucali po rubovima ali ja ko ja, ne mogu smisliti drugi oblik na sebi pa sam ih uvek skratila, ali sad da pokucam - dobro se drze. :)

  5. @Ivana: nisam ti ni stigla napisati komentar na blogu, ali doobrodošla natrag! :) Da je meni oblik noktiju poput tvojih... Mene je isto odmah na Original podsjetio, možda je malo svjetliji. Mislila sam dodati tamnoljubičaste unutra da ga potamnim pa da mu bude sličniji.

  7. zgodan lakić a i nokti dobro izgledaju... ravne je skoro nemoguće uzgojiti, i meni redovito pucaju na krajevima - kao da sami žele promijeniti oblik ;-)
