Hey, hey! I’m really excited to show off another polish from Sally Hansen’s Tribal Vibes collection! You all know how much I love metallics, but I love them the most of all in the Fall. When leaves are dying and falling off trees there’s just something special about that extra sparkle & shine that is so….perfect.
Monday I showed off the beautiful Buffalo Nickel. Today I have another polish from Sally Hansen’s Tribal Vibe collection: Terra-Coppa. Sally Hansen describes Terra-Coppa beautifully: melds the gleam of copper with the earthy appeal of pottery. I definitely agree with the gleam of copper, but there’s very little about this polish that screams earthy or pottery.
I was just as pleased with this polish as I was with Buffalo Nickel. The application is so smooth and easy. I’m really surprised at how quickly the polish itself dries – all on it’s own, before the top coat. I decided to do the bed test. I went to sleep without putting any top coat on my thumb – and it looks just as perfect as the rest of my nails PLUS no bed nails. VICTORY.
Now, I owe you a bit of a caveat before you take peak at my swatches. I was SUPER tired when I was putting on this polish, half asleep and ready for bed. I used two coats of Terra-Coppa then the top coat and headed off to bed shortly after. I scrambled to take pictures around lunch time yesterday and noticed the tips looked a little worn. But it’s not so much that they were worn, it’s that I didn’t focus on making sure the nail polish was spread evenly across the nail. You can see what I mean below, I did the two coat swatches with the top coat bottle. Once I got home from work I added another coat and took new pictures with the bottle of Terra-Coppa.
So – lesson learned. Pay more attention. I do think this could be a two coater, but if the struggle is real, just throw on a third coat.
