Lately I’ve been loving all things rose gold. I know, I’m a little late to the trend but, better late than never, right? The other night my fiancé and I were on a late night target run and I came across the new Sally Hansen Salon Chrome in Rose Gold and purchased one to try.
As an aside does anyone else feel like target is a Bermuda triangle where time and money have no meaning?? I don’t know remember we went in for, but rose gold chrome nail polish certainly was not on the list.
The directions for the Sally Hansen Salon Chrome kit was easy enough. I applied a base color (Sally Hansen Nail Rehab, which I’m currently loving), one coat of the nude (the instructions say to apply two but I chose to apply one because I already had a base). Next I applied the rose gold glitter using the applicator that came with the kit. I topped it all off with their special effects polish and finished up with a top coat.
I was a little annoyed when realize I needed a Sally Hansen color, Cheap Frills, to complete the look. Since I was already home, I decided to use a similar Revlon ColorStay color, Perfect Pair, that I had. The look didn’t really come out like I hoped. While I got a very pretty iridescent color, it wasn’t the rose gold chrome color I hoped. I will note that my nails held up for three days without chipping which is pretty good.
Later in the week I went back to the store in search of Cheap Frills, and tried the look again. I ended up with a pink glittery color, which was pretty, but not at all what was depicted on the box. Based on the price (around $15 for the kit itself) and the final color payoff, I think a glittery rose gold color will get you closer to the look than the Sally Hansen Salon Chrome in Rose Gold. I will admit, I’m still interested in trying the Sally Hansen Salon Chrome in Peacock.
I hope you guys find this review helpful! And I’m still on the hunt for a pretty rose gold nail polish, let me know if you have any suggestions!
