It seems that glitter is the current trend in SOG. When I saw that Sally Hansen Gel Polish has released a glitter line, I was intrigued. Naturally, I had to pick up a few to try out. The four I have swatched today jumped out at me based on the boxes. The colors inside are definitely not what is pictured on the box, but I feel that the glittery goodness inside is somehow better.
First up, Funfetti. The name really says it all with this one. Think two sizes of multi-colored metallic glitter in a clear base. The picture on the box shows red and green glitter, but that is certainly not what is inside. I'll let the pictures do the talking for this one.
Next, I have High Society to show you. The box depicts a shimmery blue polish. Nope. This one is blue glitter with scattered silver glitter in a clear base. It is mostly opaque in 3 coats but would be better as 2 coats over a matching base.
Of course, when I saw this next one, I couldn't resist picking it up. The box for Glitter Chatter shows a shimmery pink, so I was not prepared for the awesomeness I found inside. This one is a pink jelly base with fine, scattered holo shimmer and a few larger silver glitters thrown in. If it wasn't Halloween week, I would still be wearing this one. It absolutely sparkles without being too strong.
Finally, Glisten Up appears to be a shimmery grey on the box, but it is actually a charcoal grey base that is loaded with glitter. The majority of the glitter is silver, but there are a few colors thrown in as well. I don't even know how to describe it, so I'll just show you.
I'm very tempted to go back and get the rest of the colors in this release just to see what's inside that little misrepresentation of a box. I will say this: while Sally Hansen completely flubbed the boxes on these, the dots on the display are a much closer match to the actual polish. If any of these strike your fancy, grab them while you can as they are limited edition colors. I found them at CVS. :)
