Sally Hansen Diamond Strength - Private I

August 05, 2013

You probably already noticed that I'm really into purple nail polish lately, I just can't resist them and it seems like I've swatched / wore a lot of these lately... So today I have another gorgeous purple-plum color polish swatches to share with you ladies!

This beauty is Sally Hansen - Private I (№18) form the Diamond Strength limited collection for summer 2013, it's a gorgeous creme-jelly purple plum base with tiny magenta/gold glass flecks.
The color is so rich and pretty, and the glass flecks create a beautiful depth. It is truly a gorgeous and unique color that I know I will wear again with pleasure.

The formula was good and easy to apply, didn't streak but did have a few minor bald spots with the application of the first coat. Once I applied the second coat, it evened out and the coverage was great with just two coats for me. It dried pretty fast, the finish was quite glossy but I do prefer it with a top coat on.
For the pictures below I applied two coats of Sally Hansen - Private I and one coat of Poshe.
Hope you will like this polish and the swatch photos I took. I would love to hear any recommendations for purple colors that you like to wear :)
Thanks for reading!
