HALLOWE’EN – Part 2 of 4
SALLY HANSEN – Pumpkin Spice
So this is part 2 of 4, and this time the focus is on Sally Hansen’s PUMPKIN SPICE. You can read my review of China Glaze ICK-A-BOD-Y here. Coming up we have CG Fortune Teller and then a big ole pic heavy swatch comparisonarama!
Sally Hansen has my favourite bottle of all – this isn’t relevant, but it’s my blog lol. I love that it’s narrow and tall, and I love the wand. They also apply really easily and are a real VFM price.
So, Pumpkin Spice… has an automatic head start because my cat is called Pumpkin. In all the photos, PS is layered over 2 coats of SH Black Out, and the contrast nail (thumb) is in CG Ick-A-Bod-y.
The immediately noticeable difference is how much sparser and smaller the glitter is in PS. Which one you prefer is really going to be driven by this factor. Personally, I loved the sparseness – it made me feel I was wearing a night sky sprinkled with sunset.
The base is a murky brown rather than black, and does not have the green overtone of Icky. The orange glitter is pretty much identical in colour – and looks fabulous electric against black nails. I am also itching to try this over a red to see what happens J
Again, I added KleanColor Chunky Holo in POPPY over the middle nail – I really love how this makes half the sparkles flash green – it’s just so twisted monster!
So, for me, PS is a winner, I like it’s subtle, and I am pretty sure with more layers you can build it up to match Icky.
Stay tuned, just Fortune Teller to go, then we can vote for our favourite!
Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
