Yesterday I decided to go to the Walgreens where I had found the L'Oreal North Fake collection, the Maybelline Salsa Sun collection, and a bunch of other new spring stuff. I went in hopes that I would find Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure. When I got there I found the new Sally Hansen display, but the Hidden Treasure slot was empty. I became irrationally enraged. Seriously. How dare two other people buy my bottles of Hidden Treasure? How dare they? I got in my car and stopped at two other drug stores on my way home. At the last one I finally found one bottle of Hidden Treasure; the new Sally Hansen Salon polishes were also buy one get one 50% off. My rage subsided a bit.
By the time I got home and slapped this on my rage was completely gone. Hidden Treasure is happy sauce. This is one coat (!) over Rescue Beauty Lounge Drifter. I was distressed for a hot minute about putting something over an immaculate RBL creme, but I was desperate for some flaky goodness. All in all I think I've got on...six coats of polish (base, two of Drifter, Seche, Hidden Treasure, Seche) and it completely survived a night at work. There's tipwear, but no chipping at all. I'm impressed.
I also got Yellow Polka Dot Bikini from Sally's. I loved the effect that Sun Worshipper had so I picked up this one too. It's my only yellow neon 'cause I missed the Essie one from last spring. Hidden Treasure is in the middle and that's Sea and Be Seen on the end.
So yeah. Tiny haul. Not even a haul, really. I'm glad I found Hidden Treasure. It has actually been the easiest to find of all the Tracy Reese special edition blah blah whatevers. It took me FOR-EV-ER to find Opulent Cloud in the fall and don't even get me started on Forsythia.
Who else has found Hidden Treasure? I've been seeing a lot of blog posts about it recently. I kind of want to try it over Zoya Pinta or OPI Sapphire in the Snow and see how it turns out. I know the beautiful Brooke put it over OPI Let Them Eat Rice Cake (one of my favorite polishes of all time) and it looked fabulous. It just goes to show that a polish like Hidden Treasure can be used in dozens of different ways and is totally worth the almost $8 they want you to pay for it (madness). K, sound off. Who has found Hidden Treasure? Is anyone skipping it? I'm sure there's a Nfu-Oh dupe but I'm cheap enough to just drive around wasting gas money looking for the Sally Hansen... :)
