Sally Hansen Grape Going
**You have until September 10th to enter my contest/giveaway if you haven't already. I've gotten some faaabulous entries so I know you all can do it!
Today I have another polish that Meg gave me. It's Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Grape Going. I wish Sally Hansen didn't have like 5 kabillion lines of polishes because it would save me a heck of a lot of typing. I forgot the bottle shot ughhhh. That's really annoying. Let's just move on and pretend like I don't have the memory of an 80 year old. In fact, most 80 year olds probably have a better memory than me.

It's sheer, so this is one coat over 1 coat ofAmerican Apparel African Violet. Sorry those aren't very good pics of it, it was way back when I hadn't figured out that square nails look best on me and how to take nice pictures. I'm thinking about going back and reswatching some of the earlier stuff I did, would you guys like to see that? Like a "Look ma, I'm a real blogger now!" kind of thing? Let me know! Maybe I'll make a poll for that. Yeah, that's what I'll do.
Anyway, where were we? Okay, right, yes. So despite its unexpected sheerness, it's really awesome and pretty. It's mainly purple but has a not-so-subtle blue flash. At some angles the flash is kind of a duochrome between blue and reddish/purple, but not in all lights.
The formula was easy to work with, no problems there.
It also kind of reminds me of the infamous Scrangie. In case you are not familiar with Scrangie, it is a polish that was created by the badass blogger Scrangie for RBL. It's only fitting to show you Scrangie's own swatches of Scrangie. Confusing, eh?
I think they're pretty similar, except Scrangie is a more blue-based purple than Grape Going, but that could be fixed by layering Grape Going over a more blue-toned purple than African Violet.
In my opinion, it's a GRAPE substitute! (See what I did there!?)
