Sally Hansen Nail Prisms #10 Golden Cinnabar

When gazing at the bottle of Golden Cinnabar I was not at all wowed. I didn't think I would even like it once it was on my nails! But let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised! I won't go so far as to say that this is one of my favorite Prisms, but it is much prettier than I gave it credit for! To be honest, I didn't even know what "Cinnabar" was! I have since found out that it is a red mercuric sulfide, used as a pigment. I have included a picture below for anyone interested in seeing it in it's crystal form. Now that I know this, the name of the polish makes much more sense to me! The colours within this shade range from goldenrod to amaranth, with amaranth pink and bronze in between. Even if, like me, you don't think this shade is for you, I recommend you try it out anyway - you might be just as pleased as I am!


I was happy with the formula of this shade - two coats were enough for an opaque streak-free finish!

Cinnabar in crystal form for anyone who loves crystals as much as I do!

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!
