NOTD: Sally Hansen Slick Slate

Hi everyone! I know I said I planned to have lots of manicures to post this week, but yeah... that didn't happen. :(  Anyway... I want to show off a fun little forgotten treasure: Sally Hansen Slick Slate, a grey creme with a hint of red in the base.  It's part of the Insta-Dri collection and is very opaque.  I've had this color for awhile but last time I wore it I didn't care much for it.  I've noticed that since I've been wearing my nails shorter, I've been fond of colors that I didn't like before.  It's fun to dig through my stash and rediscover old colors.  I've decided that I really like Slick Slate because it's pretty neutral (read: office appropriate/conservative) but it's also a very unique color.

This is 2 coats of Slick Slate and 1 coat of quick dry top coat.

Photo taken in natural light.

That's all for today, but stay tuned because I have a fun St. Patrick's Day mani planned for tomorrow! :)  As always, thanks for reading!!!
