Love at first Poppy

So the lesson today is don't judge by first impressions. If red were a hot pink, this would be it. It's bold, it's flashy, it's lit from within, and best of all, it's not too dark or too "plastic" for my skin tone.

If you read the previous post, you know I picked up Sally Hansen Salon Nail Lacquer in Poppy Love from a grab bag with three SH polishes for $5. I immediately was unhappy, but after slathering this on tonight, I love it.

Please excuse the messy nails, they aren't clean yet and won't be until tomorrow (But i didn't want to risk sheet marks as I am about to crash for the night). And the background is our Halloween homemade beer pong table, not a murder scene. But I had to share. This is a beautiful color and "poppy" is right on it doesn't look like the poppies hanging in my living room, but the shade is right on with the poppies in Wizard of Oz Technicolor. The best way I could honestly think to describe it is "If red were a hot pink..." Even though the color is not pink at all. It just has the same fun, brightness and glow that a hot pink would have.

If you have the chance to pick this up somewhere, it comes highly recommended. And, I did use the new base and top coat on this SH Double Duty.
