Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish in "Pixie Slick" & "Statemint": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Products featured were provided for review.
Hi guys, I have here two more lovely colors from the new Sally Hanson Triple Shine Nail Polish Collection and unlike the previous polishes I reviewed, these two are cream polishes! Pixie Slick is a bubblegum pink and Statemint is a chartreuse yellow with almost a neon twist. To see more swatches and my review of their formulation, click......
Pixie Slick:
A bubble gum pink cream, Pixie Slick was a tad patchy on the initial two coats, which made me a little apprehensive about the formula but once I applied the third coat...... bam! The polish looked so smooth and glossy that they almost look like gel nails.
The polishes from the Triple Shine line all have a wide brush, very much like the ones of the Sally Hansen Salon Complete Manicure polishes, which I did not like. They are clumsy and hard to maneuver around the cuticles but they somehow worked with this formulation as I had no trouble getting a clean line around my cuticles.
Overall, this one is a great color, if you love pinks then I think this is a must have! Look at the cushiness and the shine of that finish!

A chartreuse yellow that almost comes off a bit neon, Statmint is also a three coater. However, the finish of this one does not compare with that of Pixie Slicks. It is still shiny but it doesn't look gel-like. The drying time of both these polishes are decent but because three coats are needed, it does take longer to dry than your average cream.

Overall, these are two solid polishes from the collection, the formulation is a bit sheer but they do stand to their "Triple Shine" claim. And even though I am not a fan of pinks, "Pixie Slick" still won me over!

Sally Hansen nail polishes are sold in drugstores across Canada and US. See store locator here.
