NOTD: Sally Hansen #580 Black and Blue

Posted on: April 26, 2013

This polish was sent to me as a PR sample

Black and Blue from Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure (CSM) is a dark blue duo chrome with turquoise shimmer and a light blue ribbon running through it. The great thing about this polish is the shimmer transfer beautifully to the nail. You know how sometimes the shimmer won’t transfer, with this one it does. This is from the re-formulated line of CSM giving it an amazing shine and a gel like finish. The wear is fantastic on the new re-formulated CSM and they really do have a gel like finish, without the hassle of a gel polish.

Black and Blue from SH CSM has all the elements I love in a polish. I like a duo chrome along with a shimmer. I havent compared swatches but this reminds me of the new CHANEL polish Azure, i will check the swatches and ket you know if they are similar. This will be one of my favorites, maybe it might even make it into the Top 10?
I have been into blue polishes lately, I’m not sure why. It reminds me of when Karl Lagerfeld designed a fashion show around the interior of an airplane with blue seats, blue lighting, a lot of blue clothes and all the models were wearing CHANEL Skyline nail polish. When he was asked “Why all the blue?”. His response was, “I don’t know, I don’t have the blues”. That’s the way I feel, I love the blue nail polish, but I don’t have the blues.

Just in case you don’t know, this is Karl Lagerfeld.

I really enjoy your research into a product and comparing it with some other experience like Karl Lagerfield genius! It looks like a great summer color.


Thank you! I’m glad you ” got” the reference to my hero KL. I probably have as many pictures of him on my camera roll as I do my kids! πŸ™‚ πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
