Who doesn’t love a cheap thrill? Sally Girl polishes are the ultimate cheap thrill. These mini polishes cost under a dollar at your local Sally Beauty Supply and there are a TON of colors to choose from. Occasionally, Sally Girl will put out a special collection. Grape Sherbert is from the current Ice Cream Shoppe collection. I saw the display at Sally’s when I was there picking up a couple of pairs of my favorite lashes and I couldn’t resist.
Grape Sherbert is a pale purple with black glitter. The purple base is a bit sheer which is good in this case as it allows the black glitter to show through when adding more coats of polish.
Due to this the formula is a bit thin. I used two coats in my swatches and while two coats was perfectly fine to the eye my swatches definitely would have benefited from a third coat.
A note regarding the name of this polish. It is called Grape Sherbert; not Grape Sherbet. I’m from the south and grew up eating sherbert with my Alabama born and raised grandmother. I have always pronounced sherbet sherbert. I’m honestly not sure I’ve ever heard anyone pronounce it differently. That being said, many consider this wrong pronunciation and spelling. I don’t know why Sally Girl chose to use the sherbert spelling. But I’ll leave the grammatical debate to the experts.
Currently, the Ice Cream Shoppe collection isn’t available on the Sally Beauty Supply website but it should be easy to find in stores.
