Sally Hansen Nail Prisms #04 South Sea Pearl Limited Edition

This limited edition version of South Sea Pearl has a slightly different formula to the original. The differences are very subtle - but are certainly detectable when the two are compared. The base colour in this version is a much crisper shade of white as apposed to a cream, and this difference is what stands out to me the most. The flashes of soft mint green are much the same as in the original, but the pink flashes have a slightly more purpleish hue. I actually prefer the freshness of this version of South Sea Pearl!

Please excuse my cuticles for the first few posts of these shades - I had a reaction to a product that was not pretty!
This shade followed suit in ease to apply! It only took two coats for a gorgeous finish! It is slightly sheer if you hold your hands up to the light, but not enough to classify it as a sheer. Great formula and very pretty end result!

I will be listing all the prisms I have available on OZtion for any Australian ladies interested in owning one! I will also be offering them for trade on MakeupAlley and in Vibrant V's Petite Boutique in the near future for anyone, anywhere!
