I was generously sent ten of the new Sally Hansen Triple Shine's for review and this is part three of the review. I'll be reviewing 4 colors and the topcoat today.
Dive In is a bright creamy aqua with a high shine finish. I did not use the Triple Shine topcoat with this, because it's quite shiny on it's own. Formula was easy to work with and evens out nicely. I used three coats for the photos, but you can do two and it's still opaque.
Oyster Bar, a silver metallic. This does show brush strokes, but the formula is nice. Just the right amount of thickness without being a goopy and you could get away with one coat, though I did two for the photos. (You will want to do thin coats with this color, because I had some bubbling the first time I tried to apply a thicker coat). I did one coat of the SH Triple Shine topcoat.
Pool Party is an iridescent pale blue shimmer. This is a very very sheer polish. It is probably best layered over another polish. I needed 5 coats to make it opaque.
I was also sent the Triple Shine Topcoat. I did not 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 wanted to do a test on the Triple Shine topcoat to see how it held up against no topcoat and other topcoats. For the test I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Triple Shine Vanity Flare which I purchased myself. My pinky has no topcoat, my ring finger has the Triple Shine topcoat, middle finger no topcoat, pointer finger has Seche Vite topcoat. I wore this for 24 hours, and as you can see there's really not a big difference! All are equally shiny.
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. 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?
