Sally Hansen – Grace Shell-y & China Glaze – Glitter Up

Hi everyone! Today’s manicure starts with a Canadian Exclusive Sally Hansen from the Complete Salon Manicure line. I’m going to miss these Canadian Exclusives when I get moved back to the US! I’m going to have to find me a Canadian mule (or would that be a Mountie??) so I can still get them!

Sally Hansen – Grace Shell-y


Grace Shell-y is a light, dusty lavender. The formula was excellent! I love the CSM line of nail polishes! The brush is wide but rounded and it is just perfect for me. The formulas are consistently excellent too! I used 2 coats plus topcoat for the photos today.

I loved Grace Shell-y on it’s own, but it was calling out for something to be added. I had a pretty glitter/holo topper picked out, but that one really needed sun and when I woke up to rain I had to go digging in the Helmers. I chose China Glaze Glitter Up from the 2014 Surprise Collection of glitter toppers. Glitter Up is a clear base with peach and light blue matte glitter hexes and smaller shiny indigo glitter that can look black, blue or purple depending on the angle. Eh, it’s ok, but I probably should have left it alone! 🙂
