Sally Hansen Royal Blush

Sunday, November 2, 2014

Hi!

I've been really into nude shades lately -- they always look so classy! Unfortunately, finding a nude that matches my skin tone has been a struggle :(

I recently tried out Sally Hansen Royal Blush. I don't think it matches my skin tone very well -- it's a little too warm and pink/orange-y. It looks more bluish in the bottle than it does on the nail, I hate when polishes trick me like that!

It still is a pretty color, though, so I decided to keep it on and do a simple glitter gradient.

Polishes Used
China Glaze Fairy Dust // Deborah Lippmann When Lightning Strikes // Sally Hansen Royal Blush

This is the first of Sally Hansen's higher-end "complete salon manicure" polishes I've tried. I really like the wider brush (although I know a lot of people prefer a thinner brush), but in terms of formula, wear time, etc. it seemed pretty similar to any other drugstore polish. 
However, the big plus for me is that these come in a wider range of shades than, say, Wet n' Wild or the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line. They have a lot of nice nude and pastel colors that are hard to find among cheaper polishes.

(For reference, cheaper Sally Hansen polishes are usually around $4-5, while these are around $7-9)



I like this polish, but I feel like it's not quite right. I guess I'll have to continue with my quest for the perfect nude shade! Any suggestions?

Thanks for reading!

  2. I think it looks perfect, love the glitter. I find nude polishes never suit me either. When I wear them you can never tell I have it on lol. At least can see you do.:)

    1. Thank you! Haha, true :) My natural nails are pretty stained and peeling so I feel like you could definitely tell even if it matched the shade of my natural nails perfectly!

  3. I love how you added some glitter to the tips! Looks so gorgeous! I know what you mean about finding the perfect nude. I either buy ones that are way too dark or are way too orange for me. The bottles definitely fool you sometimes!
