NEW! Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure- Greige™ Gardens
I took my Grandma on a shopping trip to Walmart today, like the good granddaughter that I am, and found this beauty. Because I always go look at the Complete Salon Manicure display in any store to see if some polish I don’t have and might want, I did a stroll by the polish aisle while we were grocery shopping. Boy, am I glad I did. I spotted Greige™ Gardens, and snatched it up IMMEDIATELY. I even did a quick Google image search to see if there were any swatches, and their weren’t, which meant I had a BRAND NEW CSM color on my hands. Also, I have no idea why Greige is ™ but it’s that way on the label. And I assume the name is a nod to the Grey Gardens documentary, or HBO Movie about the making of the documentary. Anywho, the color is absolutely gorgeous, and the formula is fanfreakingtastic. GG is a two coat grey jelly-creme with a purple tint. I love it. It’s cool enough to be a winter neutral, but light enough to be a spring color. It’s a little less purple to the eye than in the picture above, but it’s MORE purple than in the picture below the jump.
Because I can’t leave well enough alone, I added a rebel nail of Revlon- Whimsical. You may remember a few weeks ago when I tried it over Fashionista and was really questioning my life choices. Basically, it has been determined and made a Lacquer Law that Whimsical should be layered over a lighter color, such as a blue or purple. This looks incredibly similar to Sandy’s Whimsical mani in picture, but not so much in real life. You’ll see below that w/o flash, it’s definitely a grayish polish. But not so gray that Whimsical looks weird over it.
Complete Salon Manicure polishes are sold… pretty much everywhere. As I said, this is a brand new polish and I picked up a bottle at Walmart for $6.48. It looks a little similar to Commander in Chic, but I don’t have that polish to do a comparison…. GO BUY IT ANYWAY.
