Sally Hansen Gem Crush

I’d like to share three colors from Sally Hansen’s Gem Crush collection, *Lady Luck, *Bling-tastic and *Cha-Ching!  I used two coats of each for the following pictures.
Lady Luck, Bling-tastic, Cha-Ching!

 Lady Luck on thumb and pinky, Bling-tastic on index and ring fingers and Cha-Ching! on middle finger, outdoors, no flash.

Indoors, with flash

Lady Luck features fine magenta glitter and larger hexagonal holo glitter, Bling-tastic features fine blue glitter and larger hexagonal silver glitter and Cha-Ching! features fine red glitter and larger silver hexagonal glitter.   I'm not sure if I’d necessarily wear these again without underwear of some kind.  I think they’d look even more spectacular layered over other colors.  However, with another coat, I think I could have achieved the opacity I desired.  It was interesting that Lady Luck appeared almost matte as opposed to the shinier appearance of the other two colors.  The finish on each is relatively smooth for glitter polishes, just a little bit gritty.  I expected, being the blue lover that I am, that Bling-tastic would be my favorite but Lady Luck, with its holo, won the day for me.  I do like each of them, though, and look forward to layering them in the future.  

I'd love to hear your thoughts.  Which one do you like best?  If you've tried these layered, what colors work best as underwear?

Inspired by you, I just took ChaChing off my untried list. Tossed one coat over Zoya Ibiza and am shocked at how opaque it is. It is also really glitterbally! Wow!
