Sally Hansen’s Leaded Lilac colorfoil

This color is right on the border between blue and violet and I LOVE IT!!!

What I don't love quite so much, is the streakiness. This manicure was after shaking the bottle thoroughly, but to no avail. I still got streaky color. It looked almost as bad as a frost polish. And that is just…well, sad. Especially since the shade is utterly gorgeous and amazing.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

Close-up photo of the middle three fingernails of the left hand, showing the nail color applied. The left hand holding a bottle of nail polish and displaying all manicured fingernails, with 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Leaded Lilac Four fingers in a row, resting on the thumb, with all nails displaying 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Leaded Lilac

On the up side, this polish is thick enough that I can use it in even fine-detail nail stamps, and get an interesting color AND metallic effects. The color unevenness can just be an “artistic effect” then.
