This is my first time trying the new Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect line. While the first thing I will mention is that for opacity you will require at least 3 coats (perhaps more if you have staining, as I do), I actually think this might be worth it. All the colours in this line are lovely, pale, dream-like colours. They look pillowy soft and have a translucent quality, even when opaque- does that make any sense at all? Also, I have to admit, there might be something to the "smooth and perfect" descriptor. I rolled my eyes at first, but the finish on these does seem to be unusually glassy and smooth.
On to the pictures! Sea is the palest sea-foam green, with pearly shimmer in it. It's very soft-looking. It leans far more blue than yellow in tone, and does not emphasize the red in my skin- no "lobster hands"! This is four coats:
And this is three coats of Sorbet, a very squishy-looking pale peach (modelled by my mother, who is making another guest appearance). ;)
I have to admit, I didn't think I would love these polishes so much! Usually I go for vibrant lacquers over softer shades, but these are so gorgeous. I love the subtle, pearly shimmer running through them. Both Sea and Sorbet are delicate and beautiful, and I would think that even Sea (a green polish, albeit a very light one), would be work appropriate. I love the dreamy, pale shades in this line, and will definitely be trying more of the colours.
What do you think of Sea and Sorbet? Do you think they are as pretty as I do? Have you tried any colours from this line yet?
Finally, I'll leave you with this mother-daughter picture:
