Hard as Nails with Nylon Planetary and Reflective - Vintage Sally Hansen Week

Happy hump day everyone! I start school again next week (six classes, six days a week, ugh) so this week is just going by too fast for me!

Today I have two Sally Hansen Hard as Nails glitters to show you! I don't know if these glitters were from a specific collection, but there are a group of different colored glitters with holo glitter that have names like "Astral," "To the Moon," "Planetary," and so on and so forth. So I use the term "astronomical glitters" to refer to these polishes though I'm not sure if they were from an official collection or what. They are vintage Sally Hansens so they are long discontinued. I got these from a super generous ROAK from the lovely lady over at Another Bottle of Polish, but they are pretty rare and don't really pop up anywhere as often as other vintage Sally Hansens do. I know I probably sound like a broken record when I say this, but I wish Sally would bring these back!

First up is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails with Nylon Planetary! Planetary is a magenta and holo glitter. In all these astronomical glitters, there seems to be greyish glitters in there that add a bit of dustiness to the overall feel of the polish. I'm not sure if it's due to age or what but all the pictures I've seen of these glitters look that way and there does not seem to be any bleeding because the base of the polish is clear. So, Planetary is a greyed-out magenta and holo glitter.

These glitters are super dense and it only took two coats for full coverage. I only used one coat of top coat, but if I was wearing it for a long period of time I probably would have done two to smooth out the grittiness a bit better. These glitters are pretty phenomenal and I don't have any like this in my collection. The greyed effect really lends to the outer space feel that these have.

Without further ado, here is two coats of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Planetary. Enjoy!

Next up is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails with Nylon Reflective. Reflective is a greyed out dark aqua and holo glitter polish. It didn't have as strong a holo effect as Planetary, but it was still prevalent. This had the same easy two-coat application and it was lovely to work with. Not much else to say about Reflective except it is another fabulous polish!
