HOMG 90 followers! Guys we're 11 followers away from a giveaway. Holy. Cow. I'm so excited! Love you guys!!

I'm not one to go for neutrals too often, but sometimes I just have to give in because they're just so goshdarn flattering on my unnaturally pale skin.

Today we have Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Tough Taupe

I hate the bottle though. It's fugly.

This is two coats. In most lights, it's a grayish taupe with a slight purple pull, but when under lamps the purple-ness disappears and it becomes more of a mushroomy color. I really like it though, it's one of those pretty universally flattering colors, I think.

The formula was okay, not great, it was a little too tacky, if you know what I mean. It didn't level as nice as I would have liked, but it all turned out okay.

Do you like palate cleanser colors?

  1. I always really liked colors like this. I tried to get a color like this and it turned out to be waaaaay more purple than I had anticipated. Still lovely though. :)

  2. I like this, it's pretty. It reminds me of something an Urban Outfitters model would wear or something!!
    Tell me when you're gonna use the polishes you coughstolecough borrowed from me, ok??

  4. @Katie: I see why people love this stuff, but I could never do it all the time!

    @Sonia: I am getting around to them. Dude I have so much crap to get through...

    @Larie: I like mushrooms sometimes. I always worry that the people at the grocery store accidentally mixed up the good mushrooms with poisonous mushrooms and it freaks me out. So eating mushrooms is kind of an exciting experience for me.

  5. Pretty! I have to wear colors like this every once in a while. It's a nice break from crazy bright colors or super dark colors.

  7. Oh man. I got so confused wondering why Barry M's Mushroom was in a Sally Hansen's bottle - I think we have a dupe on our hands. XD
    Also! Almost 100! :D Looks like I may have to look into some celebratory gift-age. :D

  9. Dior's Rose Fusion Pink Putty looks rather similar on the nails, but in the bottle it's more pinkish. I'm not a big fan of it on my fingers, but it looks really good on my toes. :D
