Happy Wednesday! Today I have four Sally Hansen Lustre Shine polishes to show you. These came out back in the fall, and I was never able to grab any. I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to review some on my blog! Lustre Shine polishes are very unique, and can be worn either alone or over black. Let me show you how I wore these polishes!
First up is Azure, a gorgeous metallic blue that leans towards purple. I used three coats of this polish to achieve opacity, as two were a bit patchy. Azure’s formula is a little difficult to work with, but sometimes metallic formulas are streaky no matter what. Nonetheless, the finish at three coats is so beautiful. It has a very edgy look, and a high gloss shine. No top coat is needed with Azure!
Next is Lava, a stunning duochrome glitter polish that shifts from pink to orange. Lava has an amazing, full coverage formula that is opaque in two coats. I didn’t have any application issues whatsoever with this one! Lava is a really fun and bright polish. In the photos above you can see how the look of the manicure changes depending on how the light hits. I think it’s gorgeous!
Firefly is the next Lustre Shine polish I have to show you. In the first two photos, you can see Firefly alone. It is opaque in two coats and has a perfect formula. Firefly is a duochrome polish that shifts from bronze to green. On its own it is mostly a light brown polish, so I layered two coats over a black polish to see what would happen. As you can see in the bottom photo, the black base makes the duochrome effect much stronger and more dimensional. I love both looks with Firefly — one is more muted while the other is more rebellious!
Last but not least is Moonstone, an opalescent, pearly white polish. Worn on it’s own, Moonstone is opaque in three coats and leans towards a baby pink. In the first two photos above, you can see how dainty it looks! Then, when I layered two coats over a black polish, Moonstone came alive! It turns into a purple and green duochrome that is just really funky! I never expected those colors to appear!
All in all, I really like the Lustre Shine line from Sally Hansen. The polishes are very unique, and can be worn alone or layered over black for a strong, duochrome look. You can buy Lustre Shine polishes at your local drugstore or department store for around $7. Keep an eye out for coupons and weekly sales to get these fabulous polishes at an even more affordable price!
