Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure

On my recent trip to Victoria, I decided to stop by a Walgreens to see if just MAYBE they had the new Sally Hansen's.  OH YEAH THEY DID!  In fact, the display was completely untouched.  They retailed for $7.49 a piece but since they were having a 'buy one, get one half off" sale, I only paid $3.75 for one of them.  Wee!  (That's going in my 300 Followers Giveaway!)

I love this stuff.  It's a flakie - which is such a rare brand of polish finish.  It's been related to "mermaid scales" because of the way it flakes on the nail (not literally flaking off, but it has flakes of color).  Now the best part about this polish is that depending on your base, you can see a variety of different colors in the flakes.

For this first manicure, I wore it over my last NOTD: China Glaze Seduce Me.
As you can see, the flakes are seeing as more of a yellow and a gold against the red base of Seduce Me.

You can almost see a greenish yellow on my pointer finger.

Almost a little more green there!

Then on Thursday, I put on CND Blackjack (1 coat) and a layer of Hidden Treasure.  Please excuse the horrible quality - this was on my iPhone.
As you can see, in the shade, Hidden Treasure was more orange, but in the sun you could see green.  I actually wore this manicure for 4.5 straight days (pretty much a record) and only got a little bit of yellow staining on my nails (I had a coat of Seche Natural for base, 1 coat of CND Blackjack, 1 coat of Hidden Treasure and 1 coat of Seche Vite), so success!  I've never had so many people compliment my manicure, EVER.  I love it.  LOVE it.
