Sally Hansen Gem Crush Swatches

We've been having lots of overcast days lately, which is not great for a nail blogger who likes to take swatch shots outside!

But yesterday the sun was out after I got home from work, so I got out some Gem Crush shades sent to me for review and got some quick swatches done.

Left to right, 2 coats each
Razzle Dazzler- light rose-toned pink with silver glitter
Be-Jeweled- light purple with pink glitter
Big Money- gold with light purple glitter
Showgirl Chic- silver with blue glitter

Although these are great on their own, I also think they are cool to use as a glitter coat on top of a coordinating shade.
Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Glitz Gal (2 coats)
over 1 coat of Orly Iron Butterfly

Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Cha-Ching! (2 coats)
over 1 coat of Sally Hansen Hard As Wraps in Heartbeat Cream

Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Lady Luck (2 coats)
over 2 coats Sephora by OPI It's My Pink

One thing to note is that these are very hungry glitters.... they eat topcoat, so I have found that adding a coat of Gelous before using Seche Vite really helps smooth them out.

Disclosure: These Gem Crush shades were sent to me for review purposes.

Pin It!
