Sally Hansen: Sea and Be Seen

This is one of the new Sally Hansen colors.  It came out with the Hidden Treasure greatness.  I loved this color in the bottle.  On... not so much.  This is 3 coats of Sally Hansen Sea and Be Seen with 2 coats Seche Vite.  It's fairly sheer and probably could have used a 4th coat, but I didn't think it was worth it.  Application was pretty good, I like the wide short brush.  In the bottle, there are flashes of green and purple along with the blue.  But on, I saw virtually none of that.  I looked at it in all kinds of different lighting and blah.  It's just a blah blue.  It's kind of on the icy side too, which is more wintery than summery.  I'm not sure if it was the icy quality or the tone itself, but I just did not like this color.  I only left it on a couple days, I couldn't stand it.  I think it would have been better with a base of an opaque blue, but even still, I didn't get all the pretty colors that I see in the bottle.  Anyone else have this issue?

I haven't tried this one, but I had a similar issue with Ring My Shell--looked pretty in the bottle, blah on the nail.

@karenD - boo! that sucks. maybe it's supposed to be a layering polish. but still - what good is it if it loses all the fun color flashes?

@enamel girl - yeah, kind of regretting the purchase now, lol. maybe I'll save it for frankening or something
