Sally Hansen Gem Crush Swatches Glitter Nail Polish Review

Update: And the winner is… Kimberly Jones! Congratulations! I will email you shortly to get you set up with the giveaway. This contest is now closed to further entries. Thanks so much to everyone that entered.

Previous: I have a fun giveaway for you all today! Sally Hansen sent me their Gem Crush collection to swatch and review, and another to give away to one lucky reader. In addition to this super sparkly 7-piece collection, I am also giving away 4 sets of Salon Effects press-on nail strips.

“Gem” Crush is the perfect name for this collection of blinged out glitter nail polishes. At first, I thought these were sheer top coats, but I was happy to discover that are PACKED with shimmer and all went on opaque in only two coats. I topped each with Sally Hansen’s new Diamond Flash Fast Dry Top coat (I’m not sure if this one is available in stores yet).

My Thoughts On Sally Hansen’s Gem Crush Collection

While I’m not usually a fan of shimmer glitters {with the exception of sequin and effects top coats}, I thought this collection was really fun and so colorful! The formula and application was perfect with no streaks. I was surprised that most went on fully opaque in only two coats. I’m confused about the brushes – if you look at the bottles in the first pic above, the tops are different. The skinny tops had wide brushes that I loved. The wider tops had thinner brushes, but they weren’t difficult to apply at all. I’m hoping the difference in bottle means that they are all transitioning to the wider brush?

How To Win

In addition to the 7-piece Gem Collection, one lucky reader will also win the following 4 Salon Effects press-on nail polish sets including Lust-Rous silver and gold glitter over black nail polish, Tattoo Much, Hear Me Roar! blue leopard, and Brattlesnake.
