Sally Hansen Insta-Ombre Review and Swatches

*Press Sample*

I think it's safe to say ombre is the trend of the decade. From hair to home decor, you can find it anywhere! Sally Hansen just released a line of polishes to help you achieve the ombre look on your nails. I really love the look of a glitter gradient on nails and it's a go to look for me, so I was excited to give these a try! The bottle says to apply one coat to the full nail, wait a minute and apply a second coat starting at the middle of the nail, wait a minute and apply a third coat to just the tips. 

Let's take a look at the 4 I have to show you and I'll give you my thoughts at the end of this post.

Gold Grade is a fine yellow gold and silver mix.


Copper Cap is fine copper and silver glitter.


Layer on Lilac is purple and silver glitter.


Grey-diant is charcoal and silver glitter.


My thoughts: I really like the subtle and delicate look these give to bare nails. I find that it took some extra dabbing here and there to get an obvious gradient look. I also didn't bring the first coat all the way down the nail because I feel like that contributes to the overall gradient look better. These polishes can easily be layered over another color for a different look. I will be posting that on my Instagram (mynailgraffiti) soon. The formula was very thin and easy to work with, especially for a glitter.

The only complaint I have is that it can be hard to get a true gradient look with just the one size of glitter in this bottle. I think these would have been even better if it came with a second bottle of slightly larger glitters to use at the tip to mid point. But that said, I feel like it's harder to find bottles of superfine glitters (as opposed to larger glitters) like these to use in a gradient look so they are very helpful to use in achieving it.

This collection is limited edition and retails for around $6/bottle.

Have you picked up any of these yet?

  5. The main thing you should focus on outside of the square shape of the court is your mentor shouting. Try not to mind what the fans are cheering or booing, or even what number of individuals are in participation. Positively never tune in to your folks. Your mentor let you in the group and chooses your playing time, not mother and father. Satta King
