I was very excited to finally find the new Sally Hansen Color Foils in store. I picked up three to try. So, today I will be sharing Leaden Lilac with you. I really wanted to try these because I heard that they stamped well. Generally I'm not a fan of foil finishes. I did combine stamping with the swatches.
Leaden Lilac is by itself on the ring and index fingers. I started with a ridge filler base coat and used two coats of Leaden Lilac. It isn't horribly streaky, but still streaky. This is really a fault with most foils, in my opinion. A lot of polish stays on the brush. I recommend trying to get most of it off first. It covers well, so you don't need much. I almost got away with one coat, but was trying to see if I could hide some of the flaws.
The stamping is done using plate MoYou pro 08. Stamped over Cult Nails Nevermore and Tempest. Stamps very well over black, which is a huge plus in my books. Excuse the bad stamping over the white. It is my super curvy nail, but for some reason I couldn't get my squishy stamper to pick up the polish. I had to use my Konad stamper and it doesn't like the curve. So yes, this polish does stamp. And it stamps very well!
For me, I prefer this for stamping and not a straight up polish. It was too streaky for my liking. This is just not a finish for me. How do you feel about these polishes? I purchased this at Shoppers Drug Mart for $8.99 cdn.
