Delphinium

Delphinium is part of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure collection. It's a lovely lilac grey, very neutral and flattering.

Color is lovely, just enough lilac to be feminine, enough grey to be business casual, and enough pastel to be delicate. The formula was a little runny so it liked to bleed into the cuticles and not stay put, but it's a creme so cleanup was pretty straight forward and easy to accomplish.

Be warned with any polish with a white base - they are harder to clean up since the white likes to be left behind and the color on the edges will become chalky and uneven so applying with a steady hand is better than acetone and a brush afterwards.

A silly picture to boot. It started chipping so I opted to try a monochromatic french tip manicure using Sally Hansen Lavendar Cloud. I think the colors look nice but the tips are waaayyyyy too thick. I shouldn't have used the polish brush to do them. My bad. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted, all three minutes of it!
