Sally Hansen ~ Purple Pizzazz - with dots!


Sally Hansen ~ Purple Pizzazz  
Dark purple jelly with pink glass flecks

Purple Pizzazz is one of the few jellies that I actually like. Admittedly: I didn’t know it was a jelly when I bought it. I just thought it was a dark purple glitter. Little did I know that I had gotten my hands on a purple beauty.

The only downside as I see it, is that it takes three coats to reach its full potential. I think I’ll try layering over a plain purple next time, to see if I still get the same depth to it.

But anyway – the formula was like most jellies are. It looked awful after the first coat, bearable after two, and after three…? Well, take a look:


This close up shows you some of the pretty flecks:



I made dots on this. I used H&M’s “Snow White” and Essence’s “Sending you kisses” from their Ready for Boarding collection.

I sealed it all up with a layer of NYC fast drying top coat, and my dots were ready to rock! :)


And a final shot, because I like this so much:


What do you think? Isn’t the purple just a total win?



Opacity: 5/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Durability: 7/10
Value for money: 7/10
Overall: 7/10
Buy again: Yes, probably
