Extreme Pink - Sally Hansen Nail Prisms in Ruby Diamond

Apologies if I've been a bit uninspired lately, work has been pretty crazy busy. I get hangnails when I'm stressed and my thumbs are so raggedy now, arghhh. Also, I found out earlier this week that I am most likely headed to the UK in June so it's been a flurry of planning and making travel arrangements. *deeeep breath* Only a small portion of that is work though, so it should be fun!

ANYWAY! I pulled out an old swatch for today, but everyone probably already knows of the Sally Hansen Nail Prisms! Here's Ruby Diamond in all its shiny holographic gloriousness!

This pink is BRIGHT! The formula is thin, but it flows well and dries pretty fast - this was three coats.

The holo seems to be a cross between linear and scattered. Leaning a bit more scattered I reckon, but the last picture just below shows a faint hint of the "flame" you get with linear holos. (The first two photos are more color-accurate than the last.)

I once adored holos but I've moved on to glitter since because I'm so rarely out in the sun that I don't ever get to see the full blingy effect of holo polish. =( These are very pretty though and I'd love to get my hands on more! Alternatively, I should just get off my arse and make up that Spectraflair topcoat and I'll be set! =p


  1. This is a gorgeous pink! I thought I had this one but just checked and I don't. I have 3 of the other diamond colours but not this.
    Are you making a polish shopping list for the UK? My parents are off to Sweden and the UK for 3 months and I'm trying to come up with an easy to find list for them :)

    1. Aren't the Nail Prisms gorgeous! I have three holos and a couple of the duochromes but I'd love to collect more.

      I'm definitely going to try my best to find some polishes while in the UK but I don't know how much time I'm going to have to look around. I guess I better start figuring it out in advance...
