Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mint Sorbet

I have been really attracted to pastel blue and green turquoise colors lately and Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet from the Xtreme Wear line fit the bill. It applied well and only took two coats to get even and fully opaque coverage. Before I even looked at the name I kept thinking that it reminds me of mint ice cream so the name in my opinion fits it perfectly.

This is two coats plus a top coat...



I added two coats of Pure Ice Oh Baby! (989CP) for some shimmer. The photos don't do it justice. I tried photographing it from all different angles and in different light, but no matter what I just could not capture the shimmer. Most of time the blue shimmer is visible (what you see in the photos), but in certain light you get a flash of gorgeous purple (which the camera refused to capture). Click on the photos to zoom in for a closer look.


Here is Mint Sorbet before the shimmer was added, outside (overcast)...



And with Oh Baby! added on top. Again you can click on the photos to get a closer view...


I can't stop starring at this one... loving Mint Sorbet and enjoying the added shimmer that makes it fun :)
