M not a big fan of Sally hansen nail polishes I mean I love nail polish but m not very particular about any brands . I hav huge collection of nail polishes n they are all from different brands like collection2000,Rimmel London , gala of London; revlon, lakme, NYC, MUA,MUR, etc etc . I got to see this 3k or more 410 shade in many shops n being tight in budget I preferred not to buy it but then on fortunately I gt to see it in poundland n fr a pound it's great .I love the shade which is more of a gold but not truely gold looks lik peach and yellow and orange colour to it. I lik the shade n bought it at once fr a pound but when I wore it on my nails it very grainy and rough. It's a nice shade more of a peach gold undertone to it . Dries quickly which is a plus point but its very rough n grainy on nails most becz of sparkle grainy gold to it .I loved the packaging the bottle looks pretty got a diamond stud on the front which frst gives a glow to yr eyes as it sparkles hehe...! I hav yellow fair tone complexion n it looks nice but I regret of not having long nails as I think it's going to look great on long nails. N i think it's absolutely going to look adorable on someone who has got medium to dark undertone to their skin n has very long n beautiful nails.

2 more thumbs up for Sally Hansen 3k or More!

I have medium Caucasian skin with yellow-ish undertones. Finding the right "nude" color in lipstick or in nail color is extremely difficult. However, "3k or More!" is a winner for me.

The color is very difficult to capture on screen, so this is one you really must try in-person. I did today and purchased it immediately.

The base is a opaque+, opalescent rose-peach nude and the flecks are gold. It tends to the warm side of the spectrum, but with the rose & peach flashes, I'd say the color works as a true neutral. The tone matches my skin almost perfectly. However, the gold gives it just the right bling - a step down from glitter, so I'd say it's work appropriate.

Two coats give me the coverage I want, although some might want to build up one for full coverage or knock down one for a sheerer look.

I'm a big fan of the Diamond Strength line, although it often takes me awhile to find a color that I can live with. 3K and More! is the fifth SH DS in my collection. It wears like the others, meaning extremely well. However, unlike the others, this particular color needs a well-prepared nail bed, otherwise the texture is uneven and coarse.

I happen to be wearing Sally Hansen's 3K or More! today. The color is a warm, pale gold, as if you mixed rose gold with yellow gold and white gold polish with tiny micro glitter as well. The texture is (now) fantastic. It applies smooth, and has a silky, thin finish kind of like a chrome, but I like it better 'cause of the subtle flashes of glitter. Dries fast and seems to be resisting chips. Best of all, this color even looks great against my coolish, tending to red toned, pale skin, which is quite a feat for a 'frosty' nude polish.

The color of this polish is pretty. It is a very warm toned champagne color with a tiny hint of blush. There is gold glitter in this. The texture is crusty. Yes, crusty and rough. This particular polish states no chip color. Hahaha, well I did get 8 hours of no chips...while I was sleeping! The next day, I had a few nails already chipped and this was just sitting at my desk all day. I'm not wowed enough to repurchase this shade. My mission for a nice gold toned shimmery shade continues.

As the other reviewers have said, my only gripe with this polish is the texture. It is a GORGEOUS color, a kind of sparkly nude. However, the texture is just gross, SO gritty. I don't have time for layers of clear topcoat, so I'm bummed about how my nails feel now. Oh well.

This polish is a weirdo. I really like it, it's just...weird.

The color is gorgeous: an extremely blingy, glittery sandy nude. I don't have anything else like it in my collection. I see gold and colorless sparkles in a beigey base.

I don't know what I thought the texture was going to be like, but I wasn't expecting what I got. Its like trying to paint your nails with pancake batter in which you have put a LOT of undissolved sugar. I guess I thought it was a shimmer or a glass fleck, but it's actually a fairly gritty glitter that applies like a matte suede. It was as if there was no liquid in it, but it was not difficult to get it on; I got it opaque in 3 coats, after copious thinning. It dries like a suede, too--really fast--but other than that it does not resemble a suede.

It feels like sandpaper when it's dry. A coat os Gelous and 2 coats of QDTC smoothed it out nicely. The glitter, if that's what it is, is very fine, so one I got all the clear coats on it was smooth.

The brush bristles are fine--standard NP brush--but I hate the stupid fat stick they are attached to. Combined with the narrow neck of the bottle it is very difficult to wipe the stick off, so it stays coated thickly in polish and every time you redip, some polish gets on the bottle neck. I had to clean it off well when I was finished so it wouldn't glue itself shut. Dumb stick.

Overall I think I'll be wearing this one a lot, particularly to work. No boss would quarrel about its appropriateness. It is definitely the blingiest, glittery-est nude in my collex and I could totally see myself repurchasing.
