Sally Hansen Chrome Turquoise

Today I have a vintage polish to show you, Sally Hansen Chrome Turquoise. From what I've been able to glean, it seems like the Chromes were released in the late '90s/early 2000s. I was lucky enough to receive this one in a very generous swap. 

This polish is unbelievable. The formula is outstanding. I did two coats only because I'm a habitual two-coater, but the first coat looked just like this - perfect coverage with no streaks or dragging or anything.

The most incredible thing to me about this polish is how smooth it is. Usually these metallic finishes are full of brush strokes and are very difficult to get smooth. But not this one. The application was completely effortless.

It is quite beyond me why companies stop making polishes like these - and that goes for the Sally Hansen Prisms line as well. They're highly sought after, and I have to believe that even people who aren't into polish as heavily as we are would still buy them. 

The good news is that even though these are discontinued, there must be a hidden Indiana Jones warehouse with old polishes in it, because these do show up really regularly on eBay. They're mostly even reasonably priced, though some shades go for higher amounts than others, of course.

So there you have it, shiny metallic blue perfection. 

Thanks for looking!

  5. @Ashesela Yes, I've seen the one that's just called Chrome, and it is insane how shiny and mirror like it is. And yes, sadly, that was a long time ago! I wish I had a time machine to go back and rescue all the polishes!

    @MariJo Yeah, the formula is inSANEly good. Might be worth a look on eBay to see if you can find it.

    @Kitties26 Thank you. =D I really thought it was flattering. I hope you find it!

  6. I'm glad you like it, I thought you might. Because it's a one-coater, it works great for stamping.
