I don’t know what to title these posts. They aren’t always exactly reviews but sometimes I talk about the performance. Woes of trying to categorize/organize posts.
I wasn’t going to talk about this nail polish since it’s Limited Edition but I found it by chance when I went in Walgreens and I absolutely love this color, I just decided to anyway. Sally Hansen Hot Lava was released in Spring 2013 as part of the Designer Collection. I tried to find this color when it was first released, but it was always sold out at any store I went to and eventually forgot all about it. I happened to find the last one at a random Walgreens when I went to get some Rimmel Apocalips and it had to come home with me. This was the only color that I wanted from this collection, although Green Tea almost made it into my collection also. I have so many different mint/pale greens that I resisted purchasing it. I’m trying to streamline my nail polish collection.
There was nothing in my collection similar to Hot Lava so it was a justifiable buy. Hot Lava is a perfect name for this polish as it reminds me of flames, very Hunger Games-esque or Flame Princess. If Flame Princess were super glittery, Hot Lava would be her exact mix of colors. In retrospect, I should have used a yellow for my accent nail, but I didn’t have a glittery yellow polish (next buy?!) so I opted for a beige.
I used two coats of Hot Lava and about 4 coats of OPI Up Front and Personal. Hot Lava is definitely a two-coater, but you can do three for good measure although it’s perfectly fine at two.
