Nails I Love - Sally Hansen MYSTIC LILAC

Nails I Love

SALLY HANSEN – Mystic Lilac

Oh my god.  I am in so in love with this polish it just crashed into my All Time Top 10 List.  I love this.  LOTS.

My holy grail of nail varnishes is always to find the perfect lilacg-grey-taupe and oh my god does Mystic Lilac deliver.  Stop the clocks, the search is over J  Mystic Lilac is amaaaaaazing.  Its beyond gorgeous, it transmogrifies (real world) in the light and I haven’t stopped staring at it for the 2 days I’ve worn it.

Mystic Lilac is a greige base with some lilac / lavender applied.  There is no bright whiteness here – just a whole lotta sludge going on.  This is a dirty girl’s lilac.   A swampy lilac.  A concrete lilac.  A lilac porridge.

It’s dusty and murky in tone with just that beautiful lilac hue and then …. It has green glass flecks.  Teeny tiny itsy bitsy flecks that catch the light and turn it into an elfin masterpiece.   This is the colour the rebellious tweenage elves would wear in ElfLand to match their dirty blonde hair and their grass-stained knees.

little green flecks!

Really, I could go on all night.  I love this colour sooooooo much.   However, 7, yes s-e-v-e-n, Glitter Gal holo polishes just arrived and siiiiiiigh I just have to go and spend some time with them J

Happy polishing xx
