Amber Ruby and Emerald Amethyst Nail Prisms - Vintage Sally Hansen Week

Happy weekend my lovely followers!! You didn't think I'd let vintage Sally Hansen week slide  by without posting any Nail Prisms, did you?! Today I have an amazing multichrome and an equally as awesome duochrome to share with you.

Nail Prisms are, in my opinion, some of the best polishes that good ol' Sally ever did and they should seriously do something like this again.  This line not only contains many gorgeous duo-and-multichromes, but holos as well. Duochromes, multichromes and holos, oh my!! These are long discontinued but are among the easiest vintage polishes to find and pop up on eBay, blog sales, and in discount stores all the time!

First up is Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Amber Ruby. I first saw this bad boy on Scrangie and I knew that I had to have it! Amber Ruby is a fantastic multichrome that flashes red, bronze and green. There's not much to say about it, I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Here is 3 coats of Sally Hansen Amber Ruby. YES!

Next up is Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Emerald Amethyst. Emerald Amethyst is an amazing purple-to-green duochrome. This is probably one of my favorite polishes in my collection because green and purple are my favorite colors and amethyst is my birthstone and are the side stones in my engagement ring! Also because it is pure amazeballs. Again, I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Here is 3 coats of Sally Hansen Emerald Amethyst. Enjoy!

So what do you gals think? Nail Prisms - yay or nay?!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you've enjoyed vintage Sally Hansen week =)

Reminder: I'm working on getting my blog sale back up, the first part is up HERE:
THE SCHOLARLY NAIL'S BLOG SALE. I will be adding lots more stuff in the next week!

  11. Very pretty swatches of these classic beauties! I love this post. I agree, these need to be brought back.

    If Sally Hansen brought these back I venture to guess they would sell one or two!

    Because they don't make them anymore, I hoard the gold tops and rarely wear them.

    My precioussssss.....

    1. Thank you! I think if SH brought them back, they would definitely sell well! They haven't really done any duochromes in quite some time, they need to step it up!

  13. I had Turquoise Opal when it first came out, but unfortunately I was only about 14 then and dumped nail polish remover into it to thin it, I went into my stash for it a few months ago and it had turned grey!! Now I need to find a replacement! Lovin the vintage SH, they're awesome!

    1. Oh wow, that is so sad!! I'm glad we know about thinner now, has probably saved more bottles of polish in my collection than I can count!
