Sally Hansen’s A New Hue (829)

This is a little brighter than I expected. Also, in certain lights, a little bit more orange. It's not a hard-and-fast orange-red, so I can wear the color. I just think that I'll prefer using it as a dotting, lining, or freehand-art polish. It's a bit too thin to be used as a stamping polish. (Not at all watery. Just…not really thick enough to use for stamping.)

The coverage is solid, and the wear-time is standard for the CSM line. This color seems to have been snapped off the displays fairly quickly…but in my opinion, other lines have done this type of red creme before, so it isn't all that special. (Still…if you have a thing for near-neon bright reds, it's pretty. And if the drugstore is having a sale on Sally Hansen polishes, the price is fairly good, too.)
