Nuance by Salma Hayek Nail Polish Swatches

I picked up four shades from Ms. Hayek’s brand recently.

Guess how much I paid for them

*waits 36 years, 4 months, 8 days and 5 hours for a response*


Yep, it was BOGO free, plus I had some CVS ExtraCare bucks. 😀


L-R: Sea Glass, Tropical Jade, Blue Agave, Prickly Pear



Here is Prickly Pear


Sea Glass is a minty green-blue. It applied kind of streaky and was the most troublesome when it came to application.

Tropical Jade is a bright teal with slight green tones (which are more apparent in person). It applied smoothly and nicely.

Blue Agave is a deep, beautiful lapis lazuli blue. It applied smoothly and with no issues.

Prickly Pear is similar to Orly Enchanted Forest. It’s a deep, dark forest green. I was able to apply two coats with no issues.

All swatches are just two coats (with the exception of Sea Glass which was three coats). I like the formulas of Blue Agave, Prickly Pear and Tropical Jade. The only one I would not recommend is Sea Glass. I love the color. but the formula is dreadful.

While you wait for the next post, work on your guessing skills, okay?
