Sally Hansen Haunted & Emerald Amethyst

    Good afternoon, Dear Reader!

    Since duochromes seem to be making quite a return right now, I thought I'd show you one of my favorites from the Sally Hansen Nail Prisms line, Emerald Amethyst.  The sun is absolutely not cooperating today, so the best I can do is give you a sense of how cool this one is.

    Since Nail Prisms seem to be pretty sheer, I picked a charcoal shimmer base for it, which I find to blend a little better than a black creme, and the one I used was Sally Hansen Haunted, which is a New Lengths from a few years ago, and I think it was a Canadian exclusive.  Haunted needed two coats over a base, and while I gave it a few minutes to set, I took a picture of it alone.

    I added two coats of Emerald Amethyst to it, waited a few minutes, then added Sally Hansen Salon Speed Shine to dry it all.  Here are a few pictures under a completely overcast sky to give you a hint at what it really looks like in decent light.

    You can see that straight on, it's kind of a purple mauve, but from any angle it's really green, which make it a lot of fun to play with in the light.  I'm glad to see a return of duochromes, and hope that some of the new ones coming out are as cool as the old ones with some different color combinations.  I haven't seen any yet that strike me as unique, but hope springs eternal.

    That's my ode to Emerald Amethyst, so until next time, Dear Reader, love and nail polish to you!
