Sally Hansen Gem Crush Collection

Well... not really the whole collection. Just my favourite three. Again, many thanks to the awesome Ali for getting these for me. *hugs!*



Lady Luck. Magenta microglitter and small silver holo hexes. Amazing! It's so strange that I would pick a pink as my favourite from a collection... but yes. This is my favourite. It's so bright and happy. And the shade doesn't give me corpse hands!





Glitz Gal. A couple of shades of charcoal microglitter plus small silver holo hexes. Sparkly! I love wearing this as a pedi. I know there are a few dupes to this one out there though.





Cha-Ching! Red microglitter and small silver hexes. Such a rich red on the nail. I love how this pulls together... the silver glitter looks like it's half buried in a sea of red. So awesome!


One thing I think should be mentioned are the brushes on these. They're the same as the Complete Salon Manicure ones resembling a big ass paddle. Do. Not. Like. I hate brushes like these. They don't give me enough control while painting. Love the colours though. I'm willing to forgo the brush for that!

  4. These are lovely. I especially like the first one...I think this shade of red-pink is quite unique when it comes to glitters. And your photos are stunning <3

  16. Man, okay. I've had horrible problems with Glitz Gal chipping on me! Granted, I wear stuff really rough (infant son) but my GOD. They chipped the first night, about 6 hours after first application.

    And yes. The brushes SUCK!

  17. i found them and you could choose 2 kinds of brushes, paddle and regular.  the handle tops were different.  i've never seen that before.

  18. I got Glitz Gal after seeing your swatches and my brush is a regular one...weird. Maybe they got a bad reaction from using the paddle type brush, so they switched back?

    Either way, I cannot wait to wear this! I went a couple of times to the store & picked it up, & put it back, & picked it up again, etc. until I finally couldn't help it & just had to get it. :) It's pretty unique.

    Thanks for the swatches! They convinced me to get it! :)
