Sally Hansen Caribbean Coral with Salon Perfect Jolt Accent


Morning, all.

Survived the Fourth weekend, despite the insane and unbearable heat in New York.  Unfortunately, I somehow managed to sunburn large swathes of skin across my body (did you know that burns on your knees hurt like a mother?) but because my new apartment building has a great view of the Hudson River, we were able to see the fireworks without having to elbow through throngs of sweaty bodies also trying to wade towards the west side.  (New York Cityites will understand.)

Complaints aside, I have for you today another accent nail manicure.  I guess I'm finally getting into these...only two years after they became a "thing."  I started with my go-to summer color -- coral -- this time, a more orangey/peach-leaning shade from Sally Hansen.  The formula was smooth and creamy and would make a fabulous pedi color to boot.

For a little summer pizzazz, I topped my ring finger with Salon Perfect Jolt, a yellow based matte glitter inflected with the same type of glitter in neon orange.  When I went to Walmart the last time I visited New Jersey, I went a little crazy stocking up on the various Floam-inspired glitters so I was anxious to use Jolt somehow.


Personally, I don't think Jolt goes well with the more subdued Caribbean Coral, which looks almost dusty in comparison to the neon matte glitter.  I probably should've paired Jolt with a brighter orange or daffodil yellow, but oh well.  You live and learn.
