Sally Hansen Triple shine swatches- part 2


Hi there everyone!
Today is part 2 of the Sally Hansen Triple shine collection. We will be looking at the shimmers.
These were the biggest surprise in the collection.The variety of colours was awesome and several had a few hidden secrets which I will share with you.




Clam Up-  Is a pale pink pearlescent polish. It took 4 coats to get the coverage in these photos, but as a work appropriate polish it ticks all the right boxes, Also this polish looked amazing over black. I will be posting pics of the polish shortly.

Blow Bubbles- Is a pink pearl polish. Again this took 4 coats but was almost opaque. Like most of the shimmers in this collection they are pretty by themselves but also they can be layered over different colours to create totally unique effects. The formula was sheer but after the layering it was quite acceptable.

Pool Party- Is a pale blue pearl polish. 4 coats for the coverage in the picture. This is a pretty colour and reminded me of cold winter snowy days. I was not sure if I would like this colour as pastels are not really my thing, but after popping it on over black I really like it! Formula was great.

Drama Sheen-  A pale purple pearl polish which is really pretty. I used 3 coats to get this coverage. This colour surprised me. as I really thought it would be wishy washy but on the nails it was beautiful!! Plus it had a a very slight colour shift!

The next few pictures are the last four colours over Sally Hansen Xtreme wears lights out.(black) Putting these pearl polishes over a different colour totally changes how they look and if you were using these polishes for a work environment, you could then pop them over black for a more night out appropriate manicure!

Make Waves- So this polish totally blew me away! If you looked at it in the shop, honestly I would have picked it up and then poped it back on the shelf. Out of all the polishes in the whole Triple Shine collection this is a little gem, and everyone needs to go an buy it! I will be showing you this polish by itself, which I did using 4 coats, tho I could have done 3.Then I will be showing you all making waves over black. this time using 2 coats. The polish by itself is a blue to green to gold duochrome. it is very subtle. when you put it over black making waves looks bright metallic green....until you get into the shade, then it shifts from green to pink to almost a funny grey blue colour. I tried to capture it best I could, but not even my pics can do it justice. A simply amazing polish.

Flame On- Is a red shimmer polish with a slight gold/pink shift in it. It was again very hard to capture in the photos but IRL you can see it no problems. I used 3 coats for opacity. This polish is something I have seen before colour wise but I do like the formula of this polish so I was very happy with it.

Great White- Is  your basic white shimmer. Pretty much a staple in a polish collection. Nothing new to see here apart from the new wide brush. A nice colour 4 coats for opacity.

Wavy Blue- Is a deep royal blue coloured polish with what looks like tiny glass flecks throughout it. I really love this colour. a unique colour for Sally Hansen as I have not seen here in Australia anything like it. I only needed 2 coats for opacity and it was very easy to apply. Another must have in this collection.

Slick Black- Is a black polish with tiny glass flecks though out it to give a beautiful shimmer quality. I loved again how this was only 2 coats. There are other blacks on the market similar to this polish but I do like the fact that slick black has a real depth to it.
