Game of Chromes

I love me some George R.R. Martin and with a name like Game of Chromes, such a blatant pun cannot be overlooked. I was also super excited to try Sally Hansen's new gel system- I've never had gel nails so in all honesty I don't know what the benchmark is, but for the most part, this is a great shade and best of all, the formula is quick-drying and easy to apply. (Nail polish dream!) I'm the kind of girl who will apply her nail polish and remove it from both hands 3 times in one sitting because it constantly smudges when I'm waiting for it to dry, and this duo didn't give me that problem at all.

Sally Hansen's Game of Chromes* is a stunning cool-toned gold, quite smoothly metallic. It looks molten, which is very pretty. I anticipated it being a festive stunner but I wore it for a good 7 days and even got boyfriend approval because it's not too in-your-face. I also tried it out with a dotting tool to add a spot of glitz to a neutral polish like Rimmel's Oh, Mr Darcy! (my current favourite neutral). The formula boasts 14 days of gel-style wear without the hassle of using the light technology of the traditional gel nails and while it lasts much longer than regular polish it doesn't live up to 2 weeks of wear. I was so impressed with how easily it applied- the regular wide brush that the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line has and the way it dries in under a minute (kind of like my favourite top coat, Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Anti-Chip top coat) makes for an awesome nail polish experience that almost redeems manicures for me.
