Layering Experiment: Sally Hansen Resolution with Sinful Colors Cinderella

Often when I am trying to find the right color for a manicure, I layer potential candidates over an existing manicure just to see the color. It is not often that I find a combination that I choose to wear as a full manicure. Such was the case when I was trying to find a color to match my dress last week. I ended up using a different green for my emerald manicure, but thought I would show you this pretty combo today.

The combination is Sally Hansen Hi-Definition nail color in Resolution layered over Sinful Colors Cinderella. For some reason I had expected Resolution to be more opaque so I was excited to see how the green polish turned teal with a golden green shimmer upon being layered. It also has such a pretty dusty look to it...

On it's own Sinful Colors Cinderella is a bright baby blue with a strong pink to silver fleck shimmer. The pink shimmer is quite pronounced even though it didn't come across well in the photos.  The formula on this is rather sheer with the nail line still visible even after three coats as seen below. Also it is a bit on the thick side, but application is still manageable. Next time I intend to layer this polish over a similar, but more opaque baby blue. I think the color definitely makes up for any formula flaws...

    Cinderella really is gorgeous. I wore if for quite a few days alone before trying to layer.
