First up is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Ruby Slippers. Ruby Slippers is a dense red microglitter in a clear base and it is fantastic. This is pre-China Glaze Ruby Pumps folks, and it may very well be the original ruby slippers polish! My guess is that it came out somewhere between 1996-2000. It could have been opaque in 2 coats but I saw my girl Dana layer hers over a deep vampy red and it was just absolutely stunning! I couldn't resist trying the same thing when I swatched it so that's what we've got here =)
Here is 1 coat of Sally Hansen Ruby Slippers over one coat of Wet n Wild Blackest Red.
Next up is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Star Sapphire. Star Sapphire is a sapphire blue glitter in a clear base. It wasn't nearly as dense as Ruby Slippers and isn't the type of glitter meant to be opaque so it is layered as well. The glitter pieces were a bit bigger and chunkier than the ones in Ruby Slippers so although they look similar in the bottle, Star Sapphire is quite different.
Another fun thing about this polish is that there were a few scattered pieces of red glitter in it! I have another Hard as Nails glitter called Shimmer, which is a green glitter that has a few scattered red pieces of glitter in it as well. I don't think the red glitter is intentional in these polishes, it probably just stuck to the lab equipment more than the other glitters and showed up in all sorts of fun places.
Here is 1 coat of Sally Hansen Star Sapphire over OPI Roadhouse Blues.
What do you guys think? Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow =)
