I was really looking forward to today's Challenge prompt! I just recently laid hands on the entire Sally Hansen Triple Shine Palm Beach Jellies collection. I kid you not, over the last couple of months I have searched for them in over a dozen stores. I finally found all but one at a Smith's grocery store (one I had previously searched). Then at Target yesterday I found they finally had a big display of them!
The biggest reason I've wanted them is so that I could try out the leadlight technique, applying them over a stamped pattern. Of course I could always make my own sheer polishes by just adding clear polish to a regular one and mixing them. But I didn't really want to go through that extra work. Plus I don't have any polishes quite this sheer, so naturally I needed them in my collection!
The one thing I have to complain about is that this collection is in desperate need of a yellow. The orange, Vitamin D-Light, is very pink leaning. And that is in addition to the "red" and pink shades. It's basically like there are three pink shades out of the six. I haven't tried the OPI Sheer Tints, which are also sheer jellies, so I can't compare. I have heard the the OPIs are super thick and bubble like crazy. I only slightly had that issue with these. I also think these are a little more sheer than the OPIs. I did two coats of each color.
So to round out my colors, I think I will have to pick up OPI's "orange" Sheer Tint, I'm Never Amberrassed, which is really more of a yellow.
