Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes in Out of this Pearl, Mauve-oulous, Apollo You Anywhere, Can’t Beat Royalty, Wine Stock, Beet Pray Love

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. But the matte top coat was easy to apply and didn’t cause me any trouble.

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.

Hey everyone! I just got back home from a super relaxing and super needed staycation weekend. I realized it has been 3 years, 11 months [not that I counted or anything] since I’ve gone anywhere without at least 1 kid attached to me and that’s just too long! I know you’re here for swatches of the newest Sally Hansen Mega Strength polishes though, so we will chit-chat at another time. 😀

First though, I want to talk about this brush. I love brushes like this because they are literally perfect for my nail: covers my whole nail in three strokes, and doesn’t get fussy at the edges. I’m in love *sigh* ❤ Continue reading

Sally Hansen x Crayola InstaDri Glam Rock nail polish collection swatches + review

Press Sample buttonI swatched this collection this week and afterwards I felt like my fingernails were gonna fall off. 😛 I am seriously impressed with the Sally Hansen x Crayola InstaDri Glam Rock collection! Every polish was two coats – but perhaps if you have longer nails than my nubs, you might need a third coat. Dry time was fast but I experienced no dragging on my second coat.
