Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure

Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure (1 coat over Quirius' Ivy Wreath)

You may remember this polish from yesterday, but rest assured, I'm not crazy. There has been much talk about Sally Hansen's Hidden Treasure. People have gone to a dozen or so Walgreens looking for this elusive polish. I was lucky enough to get the last bottle at my closest store. At first, I thought I didn't need it since I have several other flakies from Nfu-Oh. Even with pictures, I thought I could live without it. Anyway, I take it all back because this is awesome! Different colors really come out based on what base polish you have on. It has lots of gold, pink, red, green, etc. I was also impressed with how many flakes are really in there. I have only 1 coat shown, and that is all that is really needed. This thing really packs the flakies! I absolutely hate the tapered wide brush on these, but it wasn't an issue since this is mostly a topcoat. Overall, if you find it, buy it!

Hee hee! I got several!!! And I do love it. It is with great restraint that I keep from using HT on ALL manis. ;)

Peri-Did you end up doing it? How did you like it? And don't worry, I don't expect everyone to love flakies. To each their own!

Kim-How did you ever find several? I'm jealous!

Angie-So you use it on its own? How does it look?

Um... wow.

i did do it
thank you for converting me
that swatch over the bright green did it

In the swatches I had seen previously I thought it looked gangly and unnatural.

irl it does not look unnatural in fact the way the color shifts and changes looks like something from nature, like sunlight on leaves the flakes change from copper to gold to yellow to green fascinating

Has a modern and retro look at the same time.

I probably will not wear my energy star without hidden treasure.

This combo would be great for St. Patty's.

I am bound to try it on my other green creams and neons too.

Perhaps even on some blues
