NOTD - Sally Hansen Gem Crush Nail Color in Big Money

December 6, 2011

I feel like Gem Crush was an appropriate name for these polishes, because I have a crush on this one. These Sally Hansen polishes are new and there are 8 different glittery polishes available. I ended up getting Big Money, which is a champagne pewter color. I decided to add a base color so my nails wouldn't be loaded with just glitter.

I used: Zoya Shay, Gem Crush in Big Money, and Nailene Acrylic Strong Topcoat.
I definitely love this polish! This is the only polish though from the 8 available that I was attracted to. I don't plan on buying any of the others. But this one.. is amazing. I'm wearing this now and I can't stop looking at my nails. They are really distracting considering this is finals week. Haha. Anyways, I ended up getting this at CVS, which they had them for $6.99. Then I had a coupon (CVS extra bucks) for $3 off, so it was $3.99 plus tax of course. That was a great deal since they are new.

Let me know what you think! Have you picked up or seen these polishes?

  1. I'm really loving gold glitters lately.. and this one has THE perfect name. Cute mani!

  2. I bought this is an aqua blue color and as gorgeous as it was, after just two days of wearing it, the polish peeled off my nails in one big piece! I have it laying on my desk and it looks like fake nails. I didn't do base coat (never do) but I did a top coat and it didn't seem to help... Any tips?

  3. I would try using a base coat of any color. That's what I did and had minimal chipping for about a week. After that of course it started to peel off. But I used a nude polish to go with the glitter one. Try using an aqua blue color under the glitter. Let me know how that works! :)

  4. use a BASECOAT. duh.

  5. Thank you, aquaheart, I will try that next time :)
    And 'imaretard' (what I nice name for yourself), no need to be so rude. I don't spend all my spare time putting on nail polish or researching the correct way to do so. I only just recently became interested in it, so naturally I'm not a pro. If you insist on replying, please attempt to be a little more courteous to people who are just looking for some assistance :)
