Holiday Nails: Sally Hansen Gem Crush Big Money

Hooray!!  I’ve found another festive, holiday polish to wear this Christmas.    I stumbled upon this polish as I wandered down the oh-so-dangerous nail polish aisle at Target, and was eager to put another glitter polish to the test.  This one wears MUCH better.  Thank goodness!  Sally Hansen’s Gem Crush line has a range of glittery, shimmery colors.  I opted for a gold toned shade to bring a little sparkle to my holiday outfits without being too overwhelming.  Big Money is composed of a super fine gold glitter mixed with a chunkier rose gold glitter.  This unique combination reads gold, rose gold or even silvery depending on the light.

As I said earlier, I’m no longer afraid of glitter polishes.  I just have to find the right one!  Big Money has a smooth formula that doesn’t snag or catch on everything in close proximity.  After applying, but before I topped it with Seche Vite, I did just run my finger along the edges of my nails to make sure there weren’t larger glitter particles hanging off.  This seemed to work just fine and I have yet to feel the need to file down any scratchy ends.  I have worn it 2 ways and both look pretty similar.  I put one coat over a sheer light pink, as well as using 2 coats of Big Money on its own.  The former is shown in the pictures above.  I’ve got the 2 coats on just one nail that needed a touch up half way through the week because I totally forgot I’d used the pink underneath before!  You probably wouldn’t be able to pick it out because it’s so similar, but it does read alittle more gold after a second coat.
