Twinkle and Pink Champagne Bar Glitters - Vintage Sally Hansen Week

Hello lovely readers, hope everyone's morning has been splendid so far! I have two vintage Sally Hansen Hard as Nails with Nylon bar glitters today! I know bar glitters are not everyone's cup of tea but they were all the rage back in the 90's and I would be remiss not to include them during my vintage Sally Hansen week.

First up in Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Twinkle. Twinkle is an iridescent bar glitter with little iridescent microglitters scattered throughout. I layered it over a base of Finger Paints Black Expressionism and as soon as Twinkle went on top I was just about knocked out with the AWESOME. The iridescent glitters that looked pink and baby blue in the bottle took turned out to be these fantastic color shifting glitters that shifted from orange to green to deep cerulean blue. Think Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure or Nubar 2010 in bar glitter form. It looks like I have a crazy game of Pac-Man happening on my nails, right? Obviously, I am in love with this glitter and I don't have anything else like this is my whole stash. A winner for sure!

Here is 1 coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails with Nylon Twinkle over Finger Paints Black Expressionism. I know a lot of the pictures look the same but if you look closely you can see how even the most subtle movement shifts the colors in the glitter!

Next up is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails with Nylon Pink Champagne. Another awesome bar glitter, Pink Champagne is made up of pink, orange and lavender bar glitters with a spattering of microglitters in the same colors. It's so cool that over all these years, these bar glitters have not curled, bled or had their integrity compromised in any way. They are as good as the day they were made. I love that about these bar glitters. Anyways, I did this one over Black Expressionism as well and it was a dream to apply. Sally, bring back these awesome bar glitters! I have one other one, but there were quite a few HaN bar glitters that I hope to own one day. A girl can dream, right?

  9. These are so fun! I go back and forth on how I feel about bar glitter...back in the 90's all I wore was Revlon Cherries in the Snow pretty much so while I loved nail polish, and needed my nails painted constantly, I did not have a huge selection!
