Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Amber Ruby Swatch

Here is another of the Sally Hansen Nail Prisms line:  Amber Ruby.  This is one I love so much I had to get a backup bottle of it.  It has a strong duochrome/multichrome shift between red, copper, gold, and green (and apparently it goes all the way to blue, but it can only be seen in the underwater pictures).  I swatched it recently but was unsatisfied in my capture of all of the colors, so I re-swatched it over OPI Royal Rajah Ruby and it seems to bring out the colors just a tad more (two coats Royal Rajah Ruby, one coat Amber Ruby).

Sally Hansen Nail Prisms - Amber Ruby

What can I say? It's just STUNNING. See the beautiful mossy green on the edges? Yes, it does show up like that in person. In low lighting this polish is constantly shifting between all of its colors. It also has a very nice metallic finish without showing brushstrokes. Here's a picture taken at an angle where you can see the mossy green by itself:

And now for the underwater pictures (I love taking these - it's so fascinating!)

*gasp* I can't help it - it's so wonderful.

And here is OPI Royal Rajah Ruby on it's own, which is quite nice in itself!


  1. Oh wow, that is beautiful! If only I hadn't been so young when the Prisms were released....Royal Rajah Ruby is a definite staple in my collection though!

  2. OMG! I'm seriously left breathless! STUNNING!

  3. Fantastic swatch of a beautiful polish! I really love your underwater photos!

  4. I love this one! I posted about it recently. Man, they don't make polish like they used to. Gorgeous!

  5. OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! These underwater pictures!!

  6. *wow*³ You made me literally gasp *lol* This combi is so stunning, now I need a bottle of Amber Ruby in my life - stat!
    Fortunately I have at least Royal Rajah Ruby, which is a fall/winter fave of mine.

  7. WOW!!!! I am loving both of these colors, alone and together!! Drooling all over the screen!

  8. OMG can a polish be THIS beautiful!! gorgeous, fantastic..mmm =)

    i loved it, really..

  9. holy jamoley! this is so amazingly gorgeous! I can't believe how amazing duochromes look with matte top coat. This is going on my wishlist now. I love your photos too, very professional

  10. Wow, so amazing! Great photos! I saw this line when I was in my pre polish collecting days. So sad I missed out on them!

  11. Ok so I visit your blog frequently and have actually read this post more than once (such pretty pictures) and about five times now I have read the above caption as "time for the underwear pictures!!".

    Now, I know duochrome is one sexy mutha', but I could never figure out what you were talking about. What is this "underwear" she speaks of that turns them into THAT?!


    Thank you, extensive education.

    1. LOLOL!!! That's hilarious. Pretty sweet underwear, though, huh?! ;o)
