Hello lovelies! I finally found Sally Hansen Color Foil polish in Rose Copper at HEB the other day. I’ve seen swatches, and loved what I’ve seen, so I had to grab one. Here are my thoughts:
Here it is swatched on my nails. It came out a bit more copper-toned than I expected. I then noticed this about my preliminary swatches:
Three swatches, one bottle, all different. For some reason it took on a weird golden copper tone on my thumb. I did use a base coat as I had read others have done, but I’m thinking maybe it reacted weird to the base coat I used – ORLY Bonder.
Hoping to make the best of things, I tried some leopard-print stamping with Nicole by OPI in Better After Dark – a Dove Chocolate promo polish I won earlier this year. I do not recommend Better After Dark for stamping, it was a bit finicky to work with – I either got too much or not enough. I was pretty pleased with the overall aesthetic of the stamping design though.
Overall thoughts: I would like to try this one again without base coat. Until then, I’m going to have to say that ymmv – your mileage may vary. Like I said, I’ve seen gorgeous swatches of this, both with and without base coat. I’ll just have to try this one again.
