Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Swatches and Review

Sally Hansen released their Lustre Shine Collection a couple of months ago.  The collection consists of 8 beautiful polishes with eye catching color shifts in the bottle.

An intense and radiant nail lacquer infused with real silver. Inspired by the lustrous color flip of molten, liquid metal and the iridescence of a peacock feather. Creates an iridescent effect on the nail.

I have 6 of the 8 Lustre Shine polishes to show you today!  While I find all of the colors beautiful, not all of them translated from the bottle to the nail as well as I had hoped they would.


Azure is a beautiful blurple color.  There is a very slight blue to purple shift in the polish.  This is my favorite of the 6 I tried.  I used 2 coats for full opacity.


Copperhead is a pretty copper with a metallic like finish (not full metallic though).  The bottle shows a green swirl throughout, but my nails don’t reflect that swirl.  A very pretty fall color nonetheless.  I used 2 coats for this photo.


Plume has a gold to olive green shift.  One of the more noticeable “shifts” of the polishes.  Brush strokes were slightly visible with this polish.  I only used 2 coats for this photo.


Lava is another favorite of the group!  Lava is a rose to orange shift and the polish formula is different that the rest.  While the rest resemble a chrome/metallic like finish, this one seemed to be in a rose colored sheer base with thousands of tiny glitter particles.  You can see the shimmer in the photos.  Love it!  I needed 3 coats for this photo.


Moonstone is an opal white with the slightest pale pink shift to it.  This can be worn alone (like I did) or layered over other colors to alter them.  A more versatile polish.  I used 3 coats for this photo and as you can see, there is still VNL.


Firefly was another favorite!  Firefly shifts from a bronze to a golden green color.  Very close to what you see in the bottle!  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Overall, I like the Lustre Shine collection, but I do wish there was more of a color shift like you see in the bottle.  I did like the overall color though and plan on hunting down Gilt and Scarab to complete the Lustre Shine Collection!  Application on all of these was fairly decent.  Plume had some mildly visible brush strokes and Moonstone was the sheerest formula, but all of the colors were rich and well pigmented and overall applied well.

Sally Hansen Lustre Shine nail polish can be found anywhere Sally Hansen is sold (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, etc) and retail for $7.99

I believe 6 were originally released and then 2 more released shortly after! The overall colors on all of them are gorgeous! Very happy with them!
