(Nail) Polish Porn: Sally Hansen “Pacific Blue”

Sally Hansen Pacific Blue Trio

If you follow beauty blogs, you’re probably aware of this cult classic polish “Pacific Blue” by Sally Hansen. I’m not a big blue nail polish fan myself (neutrals all the way, baybay!) but I was curious about the hype behind this polish. Mostly, I was interested because this bad boy has received quite a bit of press lately due to its reformulation. People are losing their damn minds over a nail polish. Let’s all take a breather for a sec and consider bigger issues like Beyoncé and Jay-Z split rumors. Hello, clearly more important. I jest. 

Anyways, I had no plans to rush out and snag a bottle until I was strolling around Ulta and it literally jumped in my bag. For $3? I ain’t mad. 

Apparently, the new formula is a darker blue, jelly piece of crap per… everyone. I’m not positive, but I’m fairly certain this is the original formula. No lie, this is a one coater. Mind blown. I’m not even sure I have another polish that is this opaque in one coat. It is amazing. Still not my cuppa tea color wise, but if you’re a UF or UK fan this will be perfect for you *shudders*. Glossy and gorgeous formula that was so smooth to paint on. As for lasting power, it’s Tuesday (four days later) and nary a chip in sight. Pretty dang impressive.

Here’s another picture because it’s just so dang pretty. Both pictures were taken outside in natural lighting with no enhancing. Winner, winner.

  1. I’ve got the “original” Pacific Blue as well. Love the opacity! Mine’s a bit lighter, though.
    I don’t like it when companies change the formula/colour/whatever and keep the name. But there are bigger problems out there, for sure..

    • I know, looking at pictures online I felt like mine was a bit darker, but there is quite a range of this blue. Still love it though!

      MUCH bigger problems 🙂 Like deciding on my next nail polish color…:)
