SH Spark with Sinful Green Ocean

I picked up a bottle of Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine polish in "Spark" for cheap at Walgreen's. I don't know if SH is discontinuing the line, or if it's just Walgreen's that is discontinuing the line, but all the Walgreen's here have the entire Lacquer Shine line for 1/2 off. The formula is better than decent, drying time was excellent (without a fast-dry topcoat), but I hate the tiny little brush that comes in the Lacquer Shine line.

As you can see below, Spark is your basic navy blue with a tiny bit of pinkish-purple shimmer. The shimmer only comes out in direct sunlight; in indirect light, the polish looks straight-up navy blue. (You can click on the picture to enlarge it; it shows the shimmer better that way.)



I topped it off with two coats (because I can never seem to stop at one...) of Sinful Colors Green Ocean. It's a delightful blue/green flakie polish that was available in March. I love it, and I especially love it over navy blue.

Here's a pick when I think it's at it's best, in indirect natural light:





And here's another in direct sun:



After red, navy blue is one of my favorite polish colors to wear, and I really like how the flakies really pop out and glow.

I think SH must be discontinuing it because it's 50% off at CVS as well.

Looks like they're definitely going out! The colors offered weren't inspiring enough for me to buy them at full price, but when I saw them at half-off, I couldn't resist. I grabbed one of each, except for the black.

Very pretty!

I agree that that Lacquer Shine appears to be on its way out--I bought a few backups at CVS for 75% off over the weekend. Sad, because I love them, but at least SH gave me the new sparkly HDs to distract me.

Love the blue flakies!!!!! Over pink maybe?? Hmm...

KarenD: Those new HD's are absolutely AWESOME. The old HD's (which I just got around to trying) aren't half-bad either. It's always a bummer when polishes you really like get discontinued, though... I am so jealous you got the Lacquer Shines at 75% off, what a fantastic deal!!

Pryncss: You'll have to let me see when you try yours over some pink!
