As I said a couple of days ago, it’s Sally Hansen week! I don’t think these nail polishes are new, but the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat is. Let’s check out the polishes with the new Matte Top Coat! Note on formula: all of these were fairly thin and I really had to be careful that it wouldn’t flood all over the place.

Sally Hansen Mega Strength Persis-tint Wear Test

Press Sample buttonPolishes used:
1 coat of Sally Hansen Mega Strength Hardener
3 thin coats of Sally Hansen Mega Strength Persis-tint
1 coat of Sally Hansen Mega Strength Ultra Shine Top Coat

Oh my goodness! I picked up 6 more of the Sally Hansen Mega Strength polishes yesterday (have you seen my review yet of the others?) and they are flipping gorgeous. I can’t wait to show you. But for now, let’s check out how my wear test on Persis-tint did! First a reminder of how Persis-tint looked the first day:

A few notes on application: I did have quite a few bubbles showing in my manicure, so that’s something to be aware of. Also, the top coat is NOT a quick dry top coat and as such, it took forever to dry!! But once it dried, it was like iron.

This is how my manicure looked after 5 days, which included working out, showering, washing dishes, changing diapers, shoveling snow, and all sorts of other activities. As you can see, I had a couple of chips, some tip wear, and one nail was trying to start peeling off – but overall, really held up well! Especially since I’ve been having a hard time with nail polish lately.
