First up is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Hot Sauce. Hot Sauce is an amazing bright red metallic with gold shimmer. The gold shimmer doesn't really show up on the nail but it definitely adds to the metallic effect. It took 3 coats for opacity, pretty standard for old non 3-free polishes. The formula was super easy to work with, it wasn't too runny or too thick and applied quite smoothly. This is one HOT!
So here is 3 coats of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Hot Sauce!
Next up is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Cool It! Frost. Now this is your classic 90's polish, a bright, metallic yellow with frosty, brushstroke-y goodness! I know how most people feel about brushstrokes but I actually don't mind them. In fact, I embrace them! I feel like brushstrokes help add light and dimension to these kinds of polishes and I wish they wouldn't get such a bad rap in the polish world.
Cool It! Frost is shown with 3 coats here and you can still see a bit of VNL (visible nail line) in bright light, although it's not all that noticeable in real life. Application with these kind of frosty polishes can be a bit tricky because you want all the brushstrokes to run in straight lines. But honestly, it was worth the extra bit of effort because I am loving how bright and metallic Cool It! Frost is. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but I am positively smitten with this polish!
Here is 3 coats of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Cool It! Frost.
