Sally Hansen Spring 2014 Satin Glam Swatches: Chic Pink and Crystalline

Sally Hansen Chic Pink (2 coats no topcoat)

Sally Hansen Crystalline (3 coats no topcoat)

Remember when I posted the Satin Glam polish Teal Tulle from Sally Hansen awhile back? Well, they were kind enough to send me more to review for you! All of these polishes dry to a satin finish which is not quite matte, but pretty close. All of these are unique in that they have a beautiful shimmer in them which would also make them look good with topcoat. While I like these, I do have some major issues with them. 1. They will not dry for me. I've tried different basecoats (I have to have a basecoat because of ridges in my nails, otherwise they will show) but none of them truly dries, even well after a half hour on me. I end up having to put topcoat on them to make them dry. This goes across the board for all the polishes I have to review, so I figured I'd mention it before I get into individual colors. 2. The bottles have a long neck, so they have to have a long brush. The opening in the top is quite small, so I found myself sometimes getting the brush jammed in the top, or having polish from the top of the brush slowly flow down onto my nail, giving me too much polish. Now this sounds like a negative review, but I haven't read anywhere that others have had this problem, so maybe it's just me. 

Up first is Chic Pink which is a bubblegum pink that has identical shimmer. My mom wore this one, and it lasted days on her. Thinking of it, I should just give it to her. It's a nice color, but nothing too earth shattering. It wouldn't dry on me after trying about 3 different basecoats. 

Now Crystalline is more of an interesting polish. It is a white satin with pink, blue, and gold shimmer which is absolutely stunning. Being a white, it was a bit sheer and needed 3 coats and you can still see a little of my nail line. Nevertheless, this one is a keeper (sorry mom!).
