I have another older Sally Hansen polish to share with you today: Blue Aura. This polish is part of the Magicals line, a collection of truly spectacular holographic polishes. The bright sun departed minutes before I walked outside. I was hopeful enough to bring my camera with me on my errand to the grocery store.
The sun returned diffusely, directly in front of a cathedral. This was indeed magical given the positioning of the tall buildings that block much of late afternoon rays. There was a clear diagonal of sun across Chestnut Street coming from the direction of the Schuykill River. The first visible beams lit the pavement a few paces ahead of me. Perhaps the sun was possessed by a bit of whimsy and a love of holographic polish.
The application of this polish is workable. It's preferable to let the first coat set before applying the second. Otherwise, the brush will pull polish from the first coat as the second is applied. The formula dries quickly, so this is a small effort. The brush included is on the smaller side and doesn't give the best three stroke application. Expect to do minor clean up. Although Blue Aura wouldn't qualify as a fussy diva polish, it requires a little extra attention. The finished result to me is worth it.
If you have a penchant for holographic polish, the Sally Hansen Magicals are worth seeking on ebay. What do you all think of holographic polish? I have many to share with you if it's something you enjoy seeing on long nails. I may like to try some Konad stamping with holographics as well.
Happy painting, ladies!
