I'm Swatchin' You - Sally Hansen Lightening

Hello, everyone!!!
I know, I know...I'm so sorry for my unexpectedly long absence.  I have been (and still am) out of town dealing with some important family matters.  But, I have been slowly trying to get back to swatching my little heart out, and have finally gotten around to getting the swatches I have managed into posts for you guys!  Please excuse the pitiful state of my nails and cuticles.  They have been quite neglected for the past couple of months.  Actually, this may prove to be a fun little adventure.  We can see just how long it takes to get pitiful looking cuticles back into some form of decent shape.

I also need to throw out a little disclaimer on my photos.  As you can see, I do not have my light box with me or my little swatch background rolls.  So please excuse the craptastic photos that will follow.  Just bear with me as I play around with the options I have on hand until I find something that I like that works well for me.

Today, I've got Sally Hansen's Lightening, from the Insta-Dri line.  It's a rich yellow creme.  If you remember, I can't stand the paddle brush on the ID line.  That still holds true.  And the formula on this one wasn't that great.  I got some balding on the first coat, which got better with the second coat.  Usually, the ID polishes are one-coaters, but not this one.  It takes 3 coats for solid coverage, but I stopped at 2 for the swatch.

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

I also want you all to know that I greatly appreciate you sticking around!  It's so great to be back and hope to be able to bring you lots of great colors, and maybe some fun, too!
