Two-fer Tuesday: Sally Hansen Deluxe and Velveteen

Alright, another Two-fer Tuesday post! This time I have two more polishes from the Sally Hansen Velvet Texture-- Deluxe and Velveteen. These polishes look very similar but are not actually the same. Really! Deluxe is a very dark inky blue that reads almost black. Velveteen is a deep black. These are both nicely pigmented-- in fact, I would say that you probably want to be careful of staining, especially with Deluxe, which is something that blue pigment sometimes likes to do. Here I used two coats-- they both applied well without any issues. The only thing I noticed was that the black, Velveteen, seemed to dry a little unevenly and I had some shiny patches (which you can see in the photos). That hasn't happened to me with any of the other polishes from this line, so I'm not quite sure what to make of that.


And Velveteen:

These colors look similar, but they aren't quite the same! Can you tell? I wish Deluxe looked a little more blue instead of being quite so dark.
