Vintage Sally Hansens

I'm really excited to be posting some of my favorite polishes from my collection, my Sally Hansen "vintage" nail polishes! I call them vintage but really they're just long discontinued, hard(er) to find nail polishes.

I've been wanting to share this post with you guys for a long time but it took forever for one of the polishes to arrive and I didn't want to post without it. When it finally did come I wasn't able to take pictures since the sun wouldn't come out, then I had a huge break in my nails and wanted to let it grow out.

Now, rain free, sunny, and longer nubbins--I finally could put this post together! 

*This post is kind of picture heavy*

Blue Aura is from Sally Hansen's Magical Nail Makeup Line. I'm not sure when these came out but I think these are older than the Nail Prisms. This is a gorgeous aqua blue linear holographic polish. It's also my first linear holo. I've never really been a fan until now...I'm in love, deeply in love, with linear holos! I purchased this on eBay from this seller.

Fire Opal is from Sally Hansen's Nail Prisms line. It's kind of hard to believe how different this looks over black! It's a sheer pink frost on it's own but layered over black it's a stunning purple, blue and turquoise duochrome. This is only one coat, two coats starts revealing the pink base. This really is a beauty. I purchased Fire Opal from cassiecosmetics on eBay, my favorite seller for nail prisms.

Amber Ruby is from the Sally Hansen Nail Prisms line and is also my favorite nail prism. The duochrome on this is so intense and so strong and Amber Ruby has a gorgeous glow to it! It's a beautiful orange, red and bronze duochrome with a tiny hint of green. I've swatched this before here. No pictures can do this polish justice. I also purchased this from cassiecosmetics on eBay.

The two nail prisms are fairly easy to find on Amazon and eBay, but the magical you'll have to do a little more work. Also, Blue Aura ( or any from the magical line) can often come with a hefty price tag. I had to go through days of bidding until I finally bought it for around $18 shipped but I have seen it go for more than $30. At the end of the day though, it was all worth it to me.
