Go Gold // Silk Onyx

As I mentioned, I purchased two of Sally Hansen’s new Satin Glam polishes a few days ago. They sell for around $5 each, and the bottle is quite small – .33oz. The bottle is identical to the Lustre Shine bottles.

Do you prefer glossy nails, or do you like different textures?

Nails, Inc. has another textured polish, the Concrete Effect polish, which appears to be more similar in texture to say, Milani’s textured polishes.
