Sally Hansen Blue Frosting

Tonight's post will be a quick one- this is Sally Hansen Blue Frosting, a new-ish shade from the Diamond Strength line. Here I've layered one coat over a dark blurple shade (I thiiiink it's Essie No More Film, which is usually my go-to shade for layering). The finish on this reminds me a bit of the Sally Hansen HD polishes, and features a similar type of flakey shimmer (and in this case, some impressive duochromatic range). This shifts from blue, to purple, to teal. I'm very happy with this- it's pretty eye-catching in person. 






I'm intrigued to see Sally Hansen bust out some fun duochrome polishes, especially in the Diamond Strength line which I typically write off as a snooze-fest when browsing the cosmetics section. It's something a bit unexpected, but definitely welcome. What do you think of Sally Hansen Blue Frosting?

  4. This really is pretty! Drugstore polishes like SH have really upped their game lately, haven't they?

    1. It's definitely strong in real life, too! Such a fun polish. Quite sheer on its own, though- best for layering.
