Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Black and Blue, Jaded REVIEW and swatches

I came across this huge display of Sally Hansen nail polishes at CVS the other day and two colors instantly popped out at me. Of course, there isn't much left when I got there so I was happy I even got a choice left. I really wonder what else was on this displayed before it was demolished. Anyway, the two shades I ended up getting is Black and Blue (580) and Jaded (540). See below for swatches and review.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Black and Blue, Jaded
0.5 fl oz, $8.99

Brush size of these nail polishes are on the wider side. They remind me a little of the Dior nail polish brushes. These are the same size as the other Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes.

Left: Black and Blue; Right: Jaded

Black and Blue is a very deep metallic sheen of purple and green shades. It is very subtle in its chrome colors, but doesn't look too dark of a nail polish due to the light from the shimmers. 2 coats in the picture above.
Jaded is a very sheer blue green shade. What you see above required 3 coats. You might be able to use this like a jelly polish. 

Application: It applied very smoothly. No streaks but Jaded required a third coat to cover the nail completely.
Dry time: Fairly quick. Within a minute, I was able to apply the next coat.
Staying power: This lasted a 4 days without a top coat.

Overall: These are as good as the other Sally Hansen nail polishes. They last quite a while on me and the application is smooth and pretty. I do wish the Jaded shade was more opaque so I can afford to not apply so many coats!
