I'm Swatchin' You - Sally Hansen Silver Sweep

In case you didn't hear (or see, or read), my new Facebook page is up and running!  Go likey!!!  And we seem to be stuck millimeters away from the giveaway.  I'm hoping the FB exposure will fix that!  On to the polly...
Apparently, I'm on a silver kick!  This is a color from SH's Insta-Dri line.  It's called Silver Sweep.  Honestly, I bought this color for stamping, but it's a great color in it's own right.  It's a metallic silver and you are looking at only one coat, folks!  A second coat would have been nothing more than a tragic waste of polish.  Formula on this one was great.  As a metallic, you can pick up slight brush strokes, but it really isn't noticeable enough to avoid the color.  Sorry I didn't have a sunny pic for you, but I think you get the idea anyway.  Still don't love the brush and don't think I ever will.  Although, I didn't make as much of a mess with this one as I have with some of the others.  It seems that the more difficult the color is to clean up (i.e. dark colors or reds), those are the ones that will look as though I painted it on while blindfolded, balancing on one leg, hands tied behind my back, and holding the brush with my teeth.  And apparently, colors like this don't give me lobster hands, they just make it look like the edges of my nails are bruised...sooo pretty!  Click here to see it in action in stamping.

SH Double Duty and SH Insta-Dri for base and top.
