Sally Hansen Triple Shine: Part 2

✯ PR Sample ✯

I was generously sent ten of the new Sally Hansen Triple Shine's for review. Since I already shared a post before with eight of the new colors that I purchased myself, I'm going to be breaking these next posts up into part two and three. Today I'll be reviewing 5 colors, plus the Triple Shine topcoat.


Flame On is a magenta iridescent color with a pearl like finish. It has some blue/purple shimmer in it. The formula is nice. Not too runny or thick and you can get it opaque in just 2-3 thin coats. I used 1 coat of Triple Shine topcoat. (In real life you couldn't see my nail line, but under the bright lighting in my light tent you can see it in the photos.)



Reef-Raf is a bright, almost neon hot pink cream polish. The formula is thick but not goopy. I only needed two coats to make it opaque, but because I'm a perfectionist I did 3 coats for the photos. It dried with a nice glossy finish so I did not use a topcoat.


Pixie Slicks is a bubble gum pink. The formula was thinner than I expected. It's much thinner than the other 'Pop' colors in the collection. I needed 4 coats to get it even & opaque. You could probably get away with 3 coats, but I still had streaks at 3 coats. Also, because it's runny you have to be careful when applying, so you don't flood your cuticles. I needed to use the Triple Shine topcoat with this, because it wasn't as glossy on it's own.


Twinkled Pink has pink, silver, copper, iridescent and micro glitters. It's really pretty glitter topper. The formula was a little bit thick, but not hard to apply. I used 2 coats over Vanity Flare which I purchased myself.


Red Snapper is a gorgeous bright fire engine red. Formula was perfect. Not too thick, not too runny. It applied nice and even and opaque in two coats, though I did three for pictures. It dried with a super glossy finish, so I did not need the topcoat. I love this color! Even my husband said, "Wow! That's bright."



I was also sent the Triple Shine Topcoat. I didn't need to use the topcoat on every color, because some of the polishes dried with a high shine finish on their own. When I did use the Triple Shine topcoat, the formula wasn't too runny and it applied nice and even. You do need to be careful to do a thin coat though, or else you will get little air bubbles. It dries with a nice glossy finish.


I've heard a lot of the people say they don't like the wider brush with the Triple Shine collection, but I find no issues using it. It's wide enough that you can cover your nail in one swipe once you're used to it. The Triple Shine line is formulated with an ultimate shield complex which gives your nails daily protection from water and wear and non stop shine. There are 29 colors and 1 topcoat and they retail for $4.99. You can find them at chain drugstores, food stores and mass retailers like Walmart, Target, etc.

What do you think of of the Triple Shine Line?
