NOTD - Sally Hansen Gunmetal Nail Polish Review

On my nails today is Sally Hansen's 'Gunmetal' nail polish from their Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear range. This is the first nail polish I have brought from this particular range however I am already a huge fan of Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure range of polishes. 'Gunmetal' is a combination of a denim blue colour and a grey gunmetal colour. This polish is very shimmery. I absolutely adore this colour.

The formula of 'Gunmetal' is quite thin. Two coats were necessary for opaque colour. I'm notoriously bad at applying nail polishes with thin formulas as I find my coats are way too thick. Nonetheless drying time was reasonable. Despite the thin formula the polish applied relatively easily. For a shimmer polish I didn't find the formula to be too streaky. I applied Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri as a top coat.

Depending on the light (as always) this polish can look really blue and then when the sun is hiding you can see more of the gunmetal grey colour. My new favourite polish?!


  1. I love gunmetal. A nice one for Fall! :)

    1. Absolutely! It's perfect for this cold weather we've been having. Can't wait for spring, bring on the neon polish :) Cheers

  2. Hmmmm...pretty indeed! I am thinking of trying it out. I have not tried this kind of color yet so it will be my first.
