It is Cheap Tuesday where everything is cheap like tacos and movies so today in the world of Claw of Cthulhu, it's no different - it's Cheap Polish Tuesday where we explore and discover polishes that are found on sale or at regular price for $5 or less. Today I've got a Sally Hansen polish and Sally Hansen seems to have so many permutations of lines, it gets a little confusing. This from the Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear line. I know this one is definitely under $5 at Shoppers Drug Mart up north here, but I for sure picked this one up for $2 on sale.
OK this will be a mouthful... Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Gunmetal is gunmetal with cold undertones and finishes a tad frosty. It matches my Volkswagen Jetta's gunmetal colour very closely! Formula and application wise, it goes on quite nicely and has slight frost finish. It will probably have the tendency to streak, so apply with minimal brush strokes on the last coat. My swatch is 2 coats and no top coat:
I've also used this polish before when I made matching nails with my car. Ch-ch-ch-check it out:
And of course, for funsies, I added some Rainbow Honey because Rainbow Honey is my favourite and for the last couple of months, I've made the decision to only buy Rainbow Honey polishes until next year. (Albeit we'll see how well I do with that one.) Here's one coat of The Worst Possible Thing over top:
Now as for being 3 Free, that's where I am a little unclear. It isn't labelled on the bottle. I've also read that the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails top coat is not 3 Free - not sure if the same is to be said about the polish line! But I'd consider that a buyer beware.
How are you rocking Cheap Tuesday? I am seeing Pacific Rim for a second time tonight - this time in 3D! (Even though I hate 3D movies.) What do you think of this gunmetal? Are you aware of any other polishes that are similar and might be 3 Free?
