Sally Hansen Lady Luck Glitter Gradient

This was the only nail polish I liked from the Gem Crush collection, the other ones seem too unoriginal, and to be honest a bit pricey for a drugstore nail polish.  Plus they have 0.31 fluid ounces, while the regular ones are 0.5, ok I know I am being stingy, but the bottle is deceiving because it's huge! [end mini rant]  Also, I am really liking the Glitter Tamer, it makes everything so smooth.

Layering Order:
Nailtek Foundation II
1 coat OPI It's My Year
3 coats Sally Hansen Gem Crush Lady Luck (tips)
Glitter Tamer
Butter London Hardwear


  1. very nice - is nailtek foundation ii any good?

  2. So pretty! I love the glitter. I haven't tried a gradient. That may need to go on my to do list.

  3. Gorgeous! I tend to agree about the Gems collection, dupey to many other polishes out there right now =)

  4. Ooh I saw the Gem Crush collection recently but I passed since I've been bad lately and should exercise some self-restraint. Although I did really want the one that looks like Lorelei's Tiara from the ChG Eye Candy collection. Maybe I'll go back and snatch it...

  5. @ Nail Polish Anon: as a ridgefiller yes, but on me any coat (or coats) of nail polish that I add on top are going to take longer to dry. And also, you have to use topcoat if you're using a one-coater, because it turns the nail polish dull on the first layer.

    @ Kaki: it feels weird at first (polishing half of the nail) but the overall result makes it worth it.

    @ Deez Nails: thank you!

    @ Jacqui: yeah, when I first saw the display I thought OMG glitter, then I took a closer look and I was like Oh I already have these.

    @ Laura: You get more bang from your buck if you just get the China Glaze one though. And their formula is better.

  6. Such a gorgeous gradient! Love it! <3 Good to know about the bottle size on the Gem Crush polishes. I thought they were full size!

  7. love this color combination .. i love gradient manis .. period :-P

  8. I think I'm in love ;)
    I really like your nails and mixture of those two colors, it looks like they were made for each other

  9. @ tata-nadaver: thank you!

    @ IDNP: thanks :)

    @ Polish AMOR: me too, loving gradients lately.

    @ MissDoll: thanks, I didn't think it was going to work at first because if the silver glitter, but I did like it.

  10. I love this gradient! The colors are so pretty!
