Vintage Vault - Sally Hansen Prisms - White Turquoise

Today's post is one I've held of posting because I wasn't 100% sure what the name of the polish was, but after a bit of research I'm now happy to think I've got the name right.

Today's post features a sexy layering combo, now we all know and love Sally Hansen's Prisms, but there are a few that look boring in the bottle and on the nail are sheer and not so exciting, but thankfully layering them brings out all the lovely duochrome goodness that we know and love.

On the day I took these photos I'd tried an old Revlon called Drama, the post for it is here, it's a darkish purple. I thought I'd try layering something over it. I grabbed a un-named Prism and tried it, with one coat it was really nice, but with two it was just simply amazing. The polish looked alot like south sea pearl in the bottle so I thought that might be what it was, but I was wrong, this is much sheerer and I think it's actually called White Turquoise,  if anyone can confirm that'd be great.

So here's Revlon Drama layered with two coats of Sally Hansen White Turquoise, prepare to fall in love. :-)

I seriously could not do this polish justice, the colour is amazing, in real life it goes from turquoise to blue, to purple and then pink. It's also really refective with an almost metallic look. After two coats of White Turquoise, Revlon Drama couldn't be seen underneath, so in future I'll just use any dark colour I've got, I don't think it'll make much of a difference as White Turquoise seems really pigmented.

Right that's it for today, I'd love to know if you've got any of these Prisms and if you've got a favorite one for layering.

Cheerio for now,

Heather. :-)
