US Polish Swatches – Sephora by OPI Charge It! & Sally Hansen Strobe Light

Sorry for being so rubbish at posting these, I finally got a chance to do some proper swatching last week.

Sephora by OPI in Charge It!

I like the brush on this but the polish consistency and colour seems a bit wishy-washy, it looked very watery on first coat, it took 3 coats in the pic. And I’ll be honest…I didn’t like the colour or finish as it really didn’t suit my skintone at all, I think it's a little yellower than I'd have liked and showed up streaks. I was hoping it might have a little shimmer or fine glitter secretly in it but it didn't really..I think the problem here is that I was envisioning something like OPI Glitzerland (should have just bought that one!). As a result, I didn't actually have this polish on for long enough to comment about longevity or tipwear, sorry....

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Strobe Light

I love this polish – it would be good for layering with maybe one coat but the glitter is dense enough on it’s own after 3 coats (I've got 2 on in the pic). Its basically pink and holo glitter or various sizes suspended in clear polish. The pics say it all really! It lasts a long time on the nails and is like concrete mixed with superglue once it dries...word of warning , like most glitters, this is a biatch to remove!
Also, I absolutely adore the Sephora Lip Gloss (in Pin Up Pink) that I bought over there, and I'm so sad that I didn't get a back up - I love the colour and the smell and people have actually complimented me on it, I don't think that's happened before! I think arranging another trip to the US solely to repurchase would be a bit much though...


  1. OH that gold is fabulous! i just tried one by opi called glizterland and was obsessed! ill def be giving this one a go!!! xo

  2. I just put CHarged it on now!! I agree - it's more yellow than I would like too :( And not glitter!
