Sally Hansen – “Lapis Amethyst”

I’ve had this polish a long time, about a decade. It was a present from my mother, who probably found it in a Walgreens. I wish the Nail Prisms line was permanent, because every swatch I see is gorgeous!

“Lapis Amethyst” is no exception. It’s a shimmery blue-purple duochrome with a hint of pink in the middle. The consistency is jelly-like, so each layer is slightly translucent and very shiny. I uses three coats in the photo above, but two thick coats gives almost the same effect. For a jelly, it dries fairly fast (though it can be dinted for a while after painting).

Keep your eyes open in case this or any other Nail Prisms polish appears in your life! I keep hoping to meet someone who has them all and inexplicably wants to give them away… ;)

  1. I have quite a few of the not-so-rare ones, and I would *love* to have them all. I wish there was a list of them all so I’d know which ones I need to look actively for.

    • Agreed, a list would be so helpful. I haven’t seen one anywhere. I do know there are 15 Nail Prism colors total. If I manage to find all the names, I’ll put a lemmings list up here. :)
