NOTE: If you are buying Hidden Treasure after 2012, you're getting a different polish that's from the same vendor, and using the exact same name.
This color had a huge following even before it hit the stores, thanks to blogger promos and lingering enthusiasm for China Glaze's Fortune Teller, which had been released in Halloween 2008. I had only really just gotten into nail polish, so wasn't aware of companies like Nfu Oh (which makes several of these “flake” polishes) and wasn't really aware of GOSH's rainbow, since that brand isn't available stateside. There was a frenzy of bloggers looking for this color, and finally - after stalking my local Rite-Aid and Walgreen's obsessively for nearly two months, I got myself two bottles. (The person in Walgreen's said that once their display was sold out of a particular color, they weren't getting any refills…so two bottles of Hidden Treasure, Ring My Shell, and all the other polishes in this collection were all that the various Walgreen's stores received.)
The first picture is Hidden Treasure over China Glaze's Goin' My Way. The second two pictures are Hidden Treasure over Zoya's Colbie.
Hidden Treasure does make a nice, subtler manicure on its own. I've found through trial and error that two coats may be a bit too much, if you want to really see the underlying color. I'm very glad I got my bottle-and-a-backup, and I do hope that Sally Hansen releases some additional flake polishes…does anyone know if it's possible to make flakes that prism through the cooler end of the spectrum? I'd love to see green/blue/purple/silver flakies in a clear base, as a counterpart to Hidden Treasure.
NOTE: In 2011, Sally Hansen released another Salon Formula nail polish named Hidden Treasure. It is not this color. That color is more similar to Ring My Shell, another polish from the same Tracy Reese collection that contained the original Hidden Treasure.
