lime lights

I have another cool layering polish to show you today!!
Aren't I good at finding gems like this?

I present to you, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Lime Lights.

This is nowhere near opaque on it's own. I got to 3 coats and stopped because it ain't happenin'.

So I picked up a wheel that already had some good colors on it, added a few, and here it is!

L-R: OPI Ski Teal We Drop, Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away, China Glaze Spontaneous,
China Glaze For Audrey, Wet N Wild Black Creme, OPI Dim Sum Plum.
(ignore the bit of Teenage Dream in the corner)

Isn't this cool? Green shimmer!
Over the lighter colors, it lets the color shine through, but then on black it just takes over and turns it into a cool dark green shimmer.

Ski Teal We Drop, Blue Me Away
It almost turns into blue shimmer over the blue shade, and enhances STWD with teal shimmer.

I am in LOVE with it over Spontaneous. Purple with green shimmer!
This will be my next mani. For sure.
Also beautiful over For Audrey, the shimmer is so subtle it like it was meant to be there.

Like I said, it just lights up over black and turns it into a cool green shimmer.
And over Dim Sum Plum it is so cute too!

I really like this shade. I'm really happy I picked this up.
I like things like this that can enhance other colors or change up your regular polish just a bit.

This color has been discontinued by Sally Hansen!
But I might have gotten my hands on two bottles.
For a certain reason...
Just sayin'.


  1. I love it over Spontaneous, too!

  2. They all look really beautiful.
    Now I want to buy nail wheels and play with my polishes. Where do you buy nail wheels any how?

  3. i got mine on ebay, but they're also sold at sallys!

  4. I think this is the polish I bought two years ago when I was in the US on holiday... I'm not sure cause I've never been able to wear it....It exploded in my suitcase !!! Looks pretty on the wheel... ;(
