I actually *had* to get some things at Sally Beauty yesterday because I had a gift card to use as well as my 15% discount which would have expired at the end of the month, and we can't allow that to happen! I picked up some of the California Mango products which work very well to keep your hands in shape, another bottle of the Miracle 7 hair leave-in (this compares and is even better than the product "It's a 10" and is less expensive) and of course, some nail polish. Today I used Orly Calypso Breeze from the Tiki Time collection and then layered Sky Blue-Pink over it just to see what that shade was like. It's a duo chrome, looking a bit grayish-blue in the bottle with pink and gold flash. Once applied, it shows up differently in various lighting, as you can see in the picture. I now realize that it is not as sheer as I thought it might be and is plenty pigmented to wear all by itself. It's a very nice color, and I notice the front of the bottle says 'French Manicure' although I don't see it as such. This one and the other Orly 'French Manicure' one I picked up, Golden Halo, had red price tags marked at $2.99, but the sale girl told me all red tagged items are 1/2 off this weekend, so that's only $1.50 each. I hope you're all enjoying the start of the long weekend! Our weather here is in the low 70's and sunny, so I'm not complaining!
