I originally posted this on Luuux and since then Sally Hansen has renewed their Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color series. Its new packaging looks really cute. (Check here)

This shade looks really bright in the bottle and you may think it’s no good for daily use. When I got it as gift and used it for the first time, I was not sure what to do with it too. You can check out more swatches at KITTYPOLISHNBAGS, Crystal Polish, and Fashion Footing.

After some playing around with the colour, I decided that it’s a really nice polish for making gradient nails. As you can see on the photo above, the colour is pretty sheer. It layers nicely and seamlessly so it is really easy to make the gradient too. Basically all you do is:

  1. Paint the entire nail in 1st coat
  2. Paint top 2/3 of the nail in 2nd coat
  3. Paint top 1/3 of the nail in 3rd coat
  4. Finish it up with a top coat

Gradient nail makes your nails look longer and elegant. I also do the same type of nail with sheer gold nail polishes. It really isn’t very hard to do so please try and let me know if you like it.

My final rating: 3/5

    I found that almost every sally hansen product peels on me. 😦 maybe i bought wrong stock (ahem 5 bottles ahem) but yeah.

      Really? That is unfortunate…
      I like Sally Hansen nail polishes because they’re reasonable and good quality. Didn’t really peal on me.
      I mean my favorites are OPI, Essi, and China Glaze but Sally Hansen is a cheaper alternative.
