Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Midnight Sky

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    Today is the first Fall day for me, so I picked a great Fall color, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Midnight Sky, one from a display of all glittery Xtreme Wears I recently came across. It's officially Fall for me because there's something I'm allergic to, I think tree pollen, that makes me ears buzz really loudly so I can hear nothing at all, and this morning I woke up to the start of it. It happens every August, so waking up this morning, it just felt like Fall. It's not a big deal at all, just a tiny bit annoying, but it generates a lot of really funny conversations!

    Anyhow, in light of an early Fall feeling, I reached for Midnight Sky. I looked at the display I mentioned, and was really pleased when I found this one. It's about the grey of the graphite in pencils, which is a handy segue to the reason I was so pleased about it.

    I'd avoided pictures of Chanel Graphite so I wouldn't be too tempted until the Revlon rendition came out, and when I looked at comparisons it was that grey with a whole lot of Chanel sparkly bits that got me, not the Revlon. When I saw Sally Hansen Midnight Sky, the reason I was excited about it is that it has a whole lots of pronounced sparkly bits, and since it was that grey with a lot of sparkle I was after, I'm able to dismiss Graphite. Not having used a Graphite, I'd never propose that anything was a dupe for it, it's that the elements of Graphite that really appealed to me are in Midnight Sky, so I'm content with it for $20 less.

    I used a Nutra Nail base (I'm just using up what's around and doesn't cause troubles), two coats of Sally Hansen Midnight Sky, which applied beautifully and was great in two coats, then Diamont. Here's Midnight Sky in sunlight (that sounds like something from Late Lament!).

    Isn't that a nice one? I'm a big fan of the Xtreme Wear line - a lot of really nice colors of offered, and the quality of them is usually very nice for little cost.

    That's Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Midnight Sky and just about all I know this morning, so until next time, love and nail polish to you!
