I love the color, I own Bronze Pink and it's stunning BUT the drying time is outrageous. I don't own any other color that takes HOURS to dry. Love the color, hate the drying time

I actually loved this product. The glitters are soooo pretty under the sun and the prisms effect is just stunning. But I do have to put 3 coars and it took around 2 hours to dry. I've been doing my nails for a while and I've never came across a nail polish that took that long to dry. I have around 5 bottles of this because I really do like it alot. But the drying time is absolutely ridiculous! =(

Why do they always discontinue the things I love best? **sigh**
Well, if you can manage to get your hands on these, they are well worth it. I've found the wear time to be excellent on my nails, and most of the colors I only needed 2 coats. But be warned...like other reviewers have mentioned, you will be highly distracted by your nails when you use these polishes. Yes, they are that beautiful and wonderful!

I love the subtle glitter effect and the way the nail polish looks blue sometimes and purple at other times, but it takes way too long to dry. It's too sheer for me. The drying time is just ridiculous on this product. I hardly ever use the bottle I have because I don't have an eternity to do my nails.

Hours of fun in a bottle! I'm surprised these are legal in fact, but they are incredibly fun. I got a lot of 10 of these from you-know-where for very little moola, and of these 4 work for me. Well, actually, only 2 work, but the other 2 are so outrageous that I'm a-keepin' them anyway :)
Turquoise Opal: this is like deep ocean water with big mother of pearl shells at the bottom, can't wait for toes this color.
South Sea Pearl: this is a color you could wear to court it's so respectable! Sheer pearl with pink/green iridescence.
Burgundy Orchid: This is a "large" color, it's so hot it swells your nails, like lip venom for your hands! Hot, deep fuchsia shifting to hot, deep violet.
Bronze Pink: Reminds me of some fire opal beads I have, they're a jelly-like orange/red with fire. Very showy, possibly too showy. Her identical twin is Amber Ruby.

These are very beautiful feminine holographic/pearlescent polishes. I wish they came in a wider shade range, but other than that, thumbs way up!

I have them in Golden Tourmaline (ruby red version, no pink) and Blush Diamond (lighter version). Both are just gorgeous. What an AMAZING holo effect! Can't stop looking at my fingers. And in sun they are even prettier. Go smooth, last forever. They don't dry slow on my nails! Quality is very similar to OPI or Essie polishes. I want to have Ruby Emerald also (La Boheme twin).

When these first came out, they were pearlized/iridescent shades that would "flash" other colors. The second round of these have iridescent micro glitter in them. I have some of both, but prefer the later glittery versions. I think I have about 5 of these in total and they wear well and can be used on their own or for layering over other shades. IMO everyone should have at least one of these.

I found this on sale for $2.99 and it was a great buy. I bought the Amber/Ruby. It takes 3 coats for good coverage. The general effect is copper, with flashes of ruby or green depending on the angle (it sounds garish, but has gone over well at the office). Because of the different colors in the shimmer this polish goes with a wide range of skin tones and clothes. I have held my nails up to clothing in pink, plum, navy, black, saffron, apple green, and red. It went with them all. It looks fabulous with Eggplant purple and Hunter green, and makes a terrific contrast with deep Turquoise. The only colors it does not go with are pastel, butter, and lemon yellows (which I can't wear anyway). So far I've had a little bit of edgewear, but no chips--not even tiny ones.
Since this review first posted I have tried Coral Presents. The color is lovely (a bit hard for me to wear, but this coral with pink would be excellent on someone with a more golden complexion). The problem is that Coral Presents takes 4 coats for decent coverage and 5 for complete coverage. When you consider the slow drying time for this polish line 5 coats is just not practical.

I have this in Golden Cinnabar and colorwise I love it. It's a perfect pink/gold and it only takes one coat to get adequate coverage. However, it does chip pretty fast for me so I don't wear it on workdays. Also, it's as expensive as longer-lasting brands like OPI and China Glaze, so I doubt I'll repurchase unless I find a great deal on the price.

LOVE these! I only have 5 different colors now, but I will buy more. I love how they can be sheer or, with more coats, opaque.
I've never had a problem with drying time whatsoever or chipping, they last a long time.

It does take a while to dry, but the colors are just awesome. I have "Blush Diamond" on my nails right now and can't help looking on them every five minutes or so :)

i normally like prismatic nail colors, therefor i bought sally hansen's nail prisms. i was very disappointed. even though the color i bought was very dark, it took me 4 coats just for it to show up. and on top of that it took forever and half to get off. i wouldn't buy it again.

I'm generally a big fan of prismatic, glittery, pearly nail polishes with odd effects. Thus, I really like SH nail prisms. So far, I have: South Sea Pearl (sheer pearl that flashes pale greenish--looks exactly like mother of pearl); Pink Rose Diamond (lavender-pink with rainbow microglitter); White Diamond (sheer pearl that flashes green, gold and pink depending on the angle); Blush Diamond (a sweet pink with gold/orange glitter); Coral Amber (bright, bright coral that flashes orange). These are very durable, and did not chip at all on me (esp. with a topcoat). They do take a long time to dry, but no longer than maybe 30 minutes for several coats. You also need several coats for the prismatic effects to show up. I think layering these over matching solid base colors would also work well. These are being discontinued, I think, since I've seen them marked down at several places, so the price is right. The color selection is very wide, so I think everyone can find something to their liking. Definitely worth checking out.

Really nice colors, great staying power, but a little too sparkly for my taste, they make me feel like a showgirl! Definitely for toes only. :)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
Totally awesome. these are becoming one of my favorite nail polishes! I have a light lavender on called "purple diamond" and it's soo gorgeous. Goes on beautiful and gives a slight rainbow effect on my nails.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
i have several of these nail prisms colors, and they are really beautiful both in the bottle and on ur nails. the major problem with this polish is that it takes an extremely long time to dry, and i always end up messing up my nails before they have completely dried. after a while i gave up on this polish and just gave it away.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Other Eyes: Brown
I have this in several colors, my favorite of which is: Diamond. These are fantastically sparkly and rainbow shimmery.
Downside? Takes at least 2 coats to get decent coverage and takes about 2 years to dry!!
If they could only improve the drying time to something reasonable I would buy this product up. It shouldn't take all day to do my nails.

I love this nail polish. I own it in several colours. I can stare at my nails for hours after doing them with this nail polish. My main gripe about it though, is that it takes hours for my nails to dry, even with the insta-dry top coat.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Green
I have this in "Lapis Amethyst", a very pretty periwinkle/lilac homographic shimmer. I think this one is a bit more subtle than the other colors.
$6 a bottle at the drug store, which is about average for drug store polish.
The consistency is very thin, and it takes 3-4 coats to get good coverage, which is typical of the shimmery polishes.
Two warnings, though. Number one, it does take a bit longer to dry than most polishes, so be sure to give yourself a couple extra minutes between coats. (I noticed some other ladies said it took hours to try - that wasn't my experience, and I wonder if they did several coats in rapid succession, not allowing drying time?).
And number two, the second and third coats can go on a little streaky if you're not careful.
UPDATE: I decided I liked this polish so well that I went back and bought it in 'Diamond', a gorgeous shimmery holographic silver. I layer it with a sheer pink for an awesome french manicure look.
