So I signed up for Influenster, a review program that periodically sends you little boxes of goodies. I thought it might be fun to branch out of books every once in awhile. I received my first box yesterday and started playing with the products.
This is Sally Hansen Magnetic Color in Graphite Gravity (with a Seche Vite base coat). I didn’t bother to clean up my mistakes or put on a top coat because I took it off immediately after this photo. Why? Because the color is so not summer and I couldn’t really get the magnet effect to work. If you look at my big left toe, well, that was my best attempt. I managed that with a triple-thick coat and holding the magnet above my toe for 45 seconds. (My hand was twitching by the end.) I may try the effect again later, but I was not impressed by the magnet.
However: the formula and brush are brilliant. The color went on like a dream. I actually got one-coat coverage! I don’t know the last time that happened. I don’t really need a polish this color as I own Stone Cold by China Glaze. (Stone Cold is a matte, but I can make it look similar to this with the right overcoat.) But I’d be tempted by some of the other Sally Hansen colors if they all go on this beautifully.
