Mystery Prism

Lextard's photo of Sally Hansen Metallic Magenta inspired me to add it to my wish list at MakeupAlley, as one of those "I don't think I'll get this but might as well put it out there" sort of items, since further research indicated it was a Canada exclusive and not very easy to find anymore. Well, one of the sweet Canadian ladies I'd swapped with before saw that on my list and said she had an unlabelled Prism that she thought might be Metallic Magenta and asked if I'd be interested. Oh yes, I would be. My end of the swap took its time getting to her, so the mystery Prism had to sit in quarantine for a while before I could swatch it, but finally the package made it through and I was able to take my new pretty for a test drive.

I can't say for sure if this is Metallic Magenta, but it could be. It's hot pink, and it's got multi-colored micro glitter. My photos don't match Lextard's, or this one by MollyHell, but that could be lighting differences or polish batch differences. Regardless, it's pretty, and I'm happy to have it in my collection.

Astute readers will notice that I'm once again rockin' the shorties, thanks to my old nemesis, Mr. Peelies. For a few days, I turned to an old school bottle of Orly Nail Defense I'd saved from years back when it was my go to treatment base coat.

I probably should just lay off the color for a few weeks and focus on treatment, but that's so hard when there are so many things I want to wear.

  5. I love the Nail Prism colours, too bad they don't make them. I don't think I could keep polish off my nails for even a whole day. My nails are also really yellow...
