Sally Hansen Ruby Diamond

Hello gentle readers.

Now we get to the reason why I bought this little collection of Nail Prisms in the first place. I like to save the best for last and this one is certainly that.

In a bottle.

Ruby Diamond is a pretty rosy magenta with a fairly strong linear holo shimmer. Who doesn't like a good holo? I sure do. :D This is two coats. Top coat doesn't dull the holo effect in the lest. My camera sure as hell does, tho. lol

Lots of pictures of this one. I was really trying to show just how amazeballs this polish is. 'Cause let me tell you, it is. Amazeballs.










Formula wise, this is a jelly. It applies so easily. No dragging, bald patches, special base coats or other shenanigans. Just smooth, silky and easy. Dry time? *sigh* Yeah, I think that you know what I have to say about that. I don't know... Maybe these need to be applied thin and I tend to apply thick coats. Is it my fault? I know not. Maybe some thinner and some Seche Vite will help. I need to try that and do a full mani. Then I can get back to you. :)

Have you found this pretty stuff? Worn it? Had better luck with it?

Thank you so much for taking a little time out of your busy day and coming by. Have a wonderful day and may your polish never bubble.

  1. Ooh, I have this one but I still haven't worn it. I'm really excited to though, since it's the strongest holo. It's so pretty! Just wish the dry time was better. -.-

  4. This is so pretty!  When I applied this I used only one coat because it was so thick and it took too long to dry to add another layer before I went to bed and it was holo-y already.  The one coat was dent-able the next day.  Perhaps it's because it's an old polish?  My nails only curve side to side not top to bottom so the holo effect isn't that great on my nails - glitter polishes work better for me.  I do love seeing them on other people's nails, this looks great on you.

  9. Keep checking back. Ross gets shipments frequently. I have been in one day and there was nothing, a couple of days later, I go in and score big time. :D

  10. Thank you. <3

    I may try layering this. Maybe I'll have the lovely holo and not so much trouble with denting.

  12. It really does have a gorge holo. My camera can't capture it in full. I also wish that the dry time were better... *sigh*

  13. I found this but haven't worn it yet. I know the dry time is rediculous. Also, I'm having a hard time getting past the bubblegum pink color, at least in this season. But for 99 cents, major score. I might layer it over a dark color and see what happens.

  14. I got this 100 years ago when it first came out (being old has some bennies, lol), and now I rarely use it because I'm hoarding. I've had no luck with these at Ross (my closest one is pretty icky), but I have gotten lucky at Dollar Tree with Golden Tourmaline and some Revlons and NYCs..
