New Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Polishes: Duchesse Lace, White Veil, Multi-Faceted

 Sally Hansen has a new, limited edition set of "Diamond Strength" nail polishes out right now.  I picked up 3 of them.  Of course, the nude polish, "Duchesse Lace" needed to be mine.  I also picked up 2 glitter "overcoats":

Here is "Duchesse Lace".  Dare I say this- this may be my new favorite nude.  It is almost a creme, but not completely- it has a super fine shimmer in it and it applied so easily:
(2 layers)
 It's not too yellow or pink...just perfectly balanced:

I did one layer of "White Veil" on top.  This glitter is a combo of small, round white'satin' (not shiny) white glitters mixed with larger, scattered gold hexes.  Beautiful!

Side note: "Stairway To Heaven" came on my Pandora station while I was putting this post together.  "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold and she's buying the stairway to heaven". I think it fits this glitter so well.  The small satiny pieces are ethereal and soft looking and throw in the chunks of gold= perfect! Too bad there is already a Lippmann with that name ;)

This combination is so perfect for me- nude, glitter and no color.  Shiny but not overly sparkly.  I didn't know I was looking for these polishes, but I am so glad I stumbled onto them.  <3 True love.

PS, I will post pictures of the other glitter, "Multi-Faceted" this week too!  ***UPDATE*** Here are pics of Multi-Faceted!

  5. OMG, Maribeth...I saw these last week and literally passed right by without stopping, thinking that they weren't anything I haven't already seen. WRONG! I love them - especially that nude! You're a bad influence on me, my friend; I've always been into the moody vampy hues, but now you've got me eyeballing all these neutrals & nudes!! Bad, Maribeth, BAD!! Lol! Gorgeous swatches!
