|Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Bronze Ablaze|
Here is Sally Hansen's Bronze Ablaze for Fall 2011. This one seems to be ONE HOT color...the olive-y green metallic trend continues. I don't own a lot of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri colors this is only the second one to my collection. I had purchased this color a while back and haven't gotten around to wearing it. I finally am bringing it to you guys...and I promised to do a comparison between Bronze Ablaze and CHANEL Peridot. Better late than never.
Sally Hansen Bronze Ablaze is a nice golden olive bronze color, heavy on the bronze. It is another perfect color for fall. I compared it to two other colors in the same color range. So, take a look at Bronze Ablaze and it's competition.
I did a comparison against CHANEL Peridot and butter LONDON Wallis. Wallis also fits the bill for an olive-green metallic.

Here is Bronze Ablaze and CHANEL Peridot. CHANEL Peridot is greener and lighter than Bronze Ablaze. CHANEL Peridot is also more a duochrome and Bronze Ablaze is more a metallic.

Sally Hansen Bronze Ablaze and butter LONDON Wallis. Wallis is definitely darker than CHANEL Peridot. It is similar in color saturation as Bronze Ablaze. Wallis is also greener and Bronze Ablaze is more bronze....hence, the name. Wallis appears more foil-like and Bronze Ablaze, more metallic.
