This post is long overdue! Back in October or November, one of my friends on YouTube, Yukia aka WarmVanillaSugar0823, showed this polish a video. I immediately starting lusting after it! And then when I heard that if you layered it over black it is similar to MAC “Bad Fairy”, I had to have it. Of course after that I couldn’t find it anywhere. She very kindly found a bottle and sent it to me. I immediately put it on and have had this post in my unblogged folder on my computer for almost 4 months now! I’m sorry this post is sooo late! On the bright side, you can find the Sally Hansen Lustre Shine line almost everywhere now! I think this polish is almost the epitome of a fall polish because its duochrome shifts to every color of the changing fall leaves, I also think its really appropriate for the changing season into spring and summer.
Sally Hansen “Lava” is a duochrome that is ultra ultra shimmery! It shifts from an orangey red, to orange, fuchsia, and gold. It seriously is like a fire on your nails, or changing leaves. Which makes me think this might be a staple polish in the fall and summer.
When you apply it it applies like a microflakie that just compounds on top of itself. The finish is very similar to OPI “Golden Eye” where it comes out as an almost-flake but creates a really gorgeous and dimensional finish. But also like Golden Eye, this baby is sheer. This was 3 coats to get it completely opaque. Also, the dry time takes a long time just like Golden Eye. And also like Golden Eye, this gets EVERYWHERE when you remove it. I had gold and orange glitter all over my skin for a few days. But since its such a pretty and unique color, I will have to put up with it!
And I had to take pictures of the full shift so you guys can see how cool this polish is!
What do you guys think? Do you have any of the Lustre Shines? What are your favorite duochromes?
