Vintage Sally Hansen Slime and Giveaway Winners!

Good morning everyone!! I have another quick vintage Sally Hansen post for you today!! As some of you may have gathered, vintage Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Halloween polishes are among the most prized polishes in my stash and I feel very lucky to have them as they are very rare. Upon reading Kaz's blog about these Sally Hansen's the other day, I realized that my dates for these collections have been 1 year off. So, the first two I showed you were actually from the 2000 collection and Vampira was from the 1999 collection.

Anyways, today I have for you vintage Sally Hansen Slime, which was from the 2000 Hard as Nails Halloween collection. Slime is a bright green glitter in a murky green jelly base. I thought this was going to be similar to Jack-o-Lantern in that the base would become opaque after a few coats but Slime's base was much more sheer. I probably should have layered it over another polish but instead, I was determined to cover my VNL and ended up doing 4 coats of Slime. I do like how it turned out because you can see that murky green base color poking through but it was a bit of a pain to get it to look nice. Slime probably could have been another candidate for Fug Friday, it definitely has that "ugly-pretty" vibe going for it.

So here's 4 coats of vintage Sally Hansen Slime. Enjoy!





What do you guys think of Slime?
