NOTD | Sally Hansen Cinna-Snap

Recently, my mother and I endeavored to purge a significant number of polishes from our collections. As usual, I circled her purged items like a vulture. Sally Hansen Cinna-Snap (Insta-Dri) is one that I grabbed up. So much for purging, huh?

SHCinnaSnapThe formula is thinner and more jelly-like than any Insta-Dri polishes I’ve used. Cinna-Snap looks darker and more vampy than the bottle color in most artificial lighting. But under my searing vanity lamp and in sunlight, it shows up as a deep, warm brownish burgundy.

NOTD | Sally Hansen Midnight Glitz

Midnight Glitz is the perfect companion to Zoya Storm because it contains slightly intense fine holographic glitter along with medium gold glitter and lots of fine black glitter. I was already wearing two coats of Zoya Storm with topcoat and just added Midnight Glitz and another topcoat for this day’s manicure.



The gold glitters are more sparse than they seem in the bottle, so in the future I will use one coat of Storm and two or three coats of Midnight Glitz for full effect.
