Sally Hansen: Mystic Lilac (*Thank you Tamara!)

I was intending to do more China Glaze Holiday swatches but we had no sun this week so we'll have to wait until next week for that. Sorry!

A few weeks back Tamara of MochaMishMash held a Sally Hansen Mystic Lilac giveaway and I won! I was so excited because I could not find this color anywhere. So I thought I would share it with you today:

Mystic Lilac is a gorgeous grayed out lilac color with sort of irridessent or silver microshimmer. I am not sure, it's difficult to describe. It's a great sort of "edgy" neutral because it's not in your face; it's understated yet unique. I really like this color a lot.

As far as the formula is concerned it's not the best in the World but is is much much better than some of the other Xtreme Wear lacquers I have tried. I found it much easier to apply than usual but it does dry rather quickly in my opinion so it can gunk up the sides of the bottle a bit if you don't work quickly.

On to the photos. I apologize in advance, my hands were very dry that day.

So are you a fan? Have you seen this in your drug stores?

pretty color! I feel like I'm the only one here who doesn't own any Sally Hansens :(

I have this in my un-trieds, I think I'll try it out this weekend!

It is a very "edgy neutral"..looks great!

I love this! I love how much Grey there is in this. So chic and delicate.

absolutely lovely color.. i can't seem to find it in any of my drugstores. unfortunate bc CVS is having that buy one get one 50% off sally hansens this week.

I love this color so much!!!

Lois you`re not the only one wihtout Sally Hansens :( I`ll just wait for a swapping buddy hehe

Lois - Thanks. I am sorry, I promise you're not missng out in terms of formula though.

Jackie - Glad you agree, I love edgy neutrals like this. Let me know what you think when you try it.

Let them have Polish - I agree, totally chic!

Amanda - ugh the drugstores here are like that too. I can never find new collections, so annoying!! Good luck finding it!

Martje - Me too!!!

Loveee this. So glad I found it!

Loveee this. So glad I found it!

I love this polish so much! I actually have a back up even haha. My original bottle is very weird application wise but hopefully the second bottle will be better. I've already worn this twice, so pretty.

Glad you loved the color. I'll admit the formulas not the best, but the beautiful color kind of makes up for it. It would be nice if SH would have made Mystic Lilac with the Complete Manicure formula instead.
