I was lucky enough to obtain a bottle of the somewhat coveted Hidden Treasure from the Sally Hansen Salon line - since it's nowhere to be found in Europe, I got it from my dear friend Teresa over in Michigan state. I was saving it for some kind of special moment, though what that really could be was obscured somewhere in the back of my head. Then, I suddenly felt inspired, and decided to kill it with fire! Because, at the same time, I was feeling like a classic, classy red, and brought out the famous Vodka & Caviar from OPI, then... I killed it with fire! Now, enough with the shameless pun promotion.
Look! Flames! What you're seeing here is two coats of Vodka & Caviar, topped off with the kind of clear glitter gradient I tend to do sometimes - just apply a french tip, drag it towards the cuticle with the brush wiped off, and then add some extra oomph right at the edge.
Darn I loved this one. I believe I wore it for three days, which is, as you all know by now, a long time for me. Sure, I was lazy and tired after finishing up my job practice in forensic psychiatry, and lacked energy to redo my nails, but these was also very durable and still looked nice and chipless by the time I took it off.
So, thank you Teresa, for the opportunity to do this, and please feel inspired, all of you. There just aren't enough flakie gradients out there!
