69. China Glaze Fairy Dust
70. Sally Hansen HD Laser

So, this is a little different. I mostly see the Sally Hansen HD polishes as topcoats for others. However, maybe I’m wrong, especially about Laser.

I started with polishes 61-64 from this previous post.

From index finger down – Fresh Paint Witchcraft, A England Elaine, Essie Velvet Voyeur, and Estee Lauder Berry Desire.

I put a coat of Sally Hansen HD Laser over all of these, and ended up with this result:

So, Laser basically turned 61-64 into the same polish, even though they were all slightly different. Don’t judge my tip wear.

Hmm, Fairy Dust.

I then added a coat of China Glaze’s Fairy Dust over the top. I blurred the nails in the picture so you can enjoy the awesome rainbow sparkliness. It’s got a scattered holo going on, but the color flash is my favorite.

Thoughts: Sally Hansen HD Laser obliterates dark polishes underneath it. I could do 100 experiments with the HDs to figure out all that they can do. DVD remains my favorite but this one is great too. Fairy Dust was purchased during the freeze period because I was at Sally Beauty for the clearance event and saw it on the shelf and was done for. It’s spectacular and I love it so there you go.
Verdict: They both stay, of course.

I’m thinking of some other random posts I’m going to have to do. I think I will use some wheels to do a comparison of all of my random topcoats over black, because I don’t think I need to try those on my hands, so I’ll work on that soon.

Date night manicure up next.

This is part 1 because I have a few other things in mind but want to post what I have so far!

From Renee:

I need something REALLY special for a tech geek that I know he will use and love. He already has the Swiss Cybertool 41, which is a GREAT gift, available only at Thinkgeek (As far as I know). That was a birthday present a few years ago. This will be for our 10 year wedding anniversary. He doesn’t carry business cards and has a wallet he likes already. He’s not into ties, cuff links or anything like that. He’s pretty laid back overall too. Any ideas?

Renee told me in a later email that she would like to spend less than $200.

Here are some ideas I have come up with that might work.

The tech gift, not so romantic, but definitely might appeal anyway.  This is the laser keyboard!

This virtual keyboard is designed to work with mobile devices and is available from the retailer for $169.99.

The next item is man jewelry, which I know isn’t for everyone (including Renee’s husband who I’m told isn’t into jewelry), but this ring is really cool and so I decided to post it anyway.

The Kinekt Gear stainless steel ring has gears that actually spin.  The outer edges of the ring actually turn so you can watch the gears in motion.  I see this as a great gift for a man, it’s a nice piece of jewelry, but definitely manly enough that it could be worn often, a reminder that you know who he is and that this is something he would enjoy.  This ring is available for $165.

Another item that I think is a practical yet luxurious item are the Rain earbuds from thinksound(tm).  These are gorgeous, designed to have superior sound quality as well as to be as eco-friendly as possible.  I’m showing the 9mm version here:

This version is available for $99, the slightly larger 10mm version can be found here for $74.99.
