Pros: even color, lovely color, nice formula
Cons: chips easily, color transfers onto surfaces, need more than one coat, stains the nails and skins

Sally Hansen has always been one of my favorite nail polish creators. I've never been disappointed by the formula or the color pay off. I've always liked that the polishes have dimension and a little something extra. Spark is no different. Spark is a pretty deep blue that almost looks black. When the light shines on it though, the blue shimmer comes out and it looks gorgeous. The blue polish can be good for the cooler seasons. I especially like this color for my toes.

As lovely as the color is, I wish it didn't chip so easily. I find that if I don't put a top coat on it, it chips almost as soon as I wash dishes or do anything with water. Also if I don't use a top coat, if you scrap your nail against paper or a wall, the color comes off onto that surface. That's not very cool if you're turning in a project for work and you have a blue streak on it.

Another caveat for this polish is it stains. If you don't put down a base coat, you will have a blue tint to your nails unless you really rub at them with nail polish remover. Heaven forbid you get the polish on your skin, you will have a difficult time getting the blue off of your skin.

I love this polish because the color is so pretty. I just wish it wore nicer.

  • Not my favorite, but it's an okay polish

    I thought given the reputation that Sally Hansen has for designing a great line of nail polishes, that when this lacquer shine was produced, it would give a lot more shine.  In order to get any kind of shine you have to wear a top coat with it.  The color itself is a deep purple, almost black.

  • Great Color But Use a Top Coat!

    Reviewing Mama's picture

    To be fair I initially bought the Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine Nail Color to use to try with a nail polish technique that creates a marbling effect. However, I am glad that I did. The colors are bold and fun. My biggest downfall for the colors is that they are a thinner nail polish. Read more

    I absolutely love this color. It is a perfect shade of dark red that borders on a black. When the light hits the polish, the color truly stands out. My picture doesn't do this particular nail polish any justice. The color covers the nail without any problem. Read more
