I knew that I didn't want to go with the traditional silver or gold foil for this challenge and I'm not 100% sure that this qualifies as a metallic but it does in my book, so let's go with it! The shade is Pink Satin but it's not satin at all! I don't know what my deal is, but whenever I see these frosty metallic polishes in the bottle, I always think I'm going to hate them on my nail. This polish sat in my untried collection for ages until this challenge and just like First Time, I ended up loving it!
I bought this polish with the desire to collect all of the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line not really anticipating that I would ever really like it much. So wrong! First of all, this polish is truly a one coater. After one coat, it was completely opaque! Completely! I looked and looked but couldn't find any patchiness or bald spots. However, knowing that sometimes the camera can pick up what the naked eye can't, I went with a second coat. Application was easier than I thought, with brush strokes actually not being as bad as I had anticipated. This is also a good polish to stamp with.
I had low expectations for this polish but I really ended up not wanting to take it off. I think I secretly love the extreme reflective qualities of these frosty metallic polishes. I guess I'm not alone since Essie's Mirrored Metallics Collection has been gathering a lot of attention. I'd love to find a cheaper alternative to their Blue Rapsody, which is a light blue metallic. Anyone know of a light metallic blue that doesn't cost eight dollars? I bet Pure Ice has one. I'll have to look into that.
