Navy Glitter Stargazer
This dries fairly gritty, but it’s pretty.

Purple Stargazer over Sinful Colors Show & Teal
No comments, other than it’s nice coverage.

Star Blue Silver Meteor Shower over Sinful Colors Blue Me Away
The glitter on this is sparse! I had to place that one star you see. It’s a shame. :/

Sinful Colors Black on Black, 1 coat as base
Tonic Polish Dragon Parade

Funny story, I was trying to take pictures of this manicure in the sunlight and my cat would not move her butt out of the way – so yup, there’s a cat paw in the next picture. 😛 Also, this is back in March when Montana winter was wreaking havoc on my nails and I couldn’t grow them out worth s***!

Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic nail polishes swatches by WOC @polishandpups

Press Sample buttonPolishes used:
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Blast Off Bronze
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Deep Space Sparkle
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Sunburst
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Razzmic Berry
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Shimmering Blush
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Sonic SilverHey I’m back again with more WOC swatches, this time by Melissa of @polishandpups. If you’re interested in my original swatches, here they are.

After that unsuccessful attempt I decided to use top coat on all of them; therefore, I don’t really know how all of them work without top coat. I also didn’t find I was happy with all of them in one coat. A couple of them worked okay in one coat but really I needed two for the coverage I prefer. Continue reading

Not sure on what 14 looks like…give me a holler if you know! All of these, except for Molten Mauve, I found to be thin and runny. I’m showing all of these in their natural matte state, and with one coat of shiny top coat. Continue reading

Zoya Polish Joni, 3 thin coats
Stella Chroma I Suspect Nargles, 3 thin coats (February 2019 Polish Pickup Pack)

This is a manicure from a long while back (hi, I’ve taken two weeks off from blogging, I’m behind). These two polishes worked just so right together, and the design worked beautifully on my (then) shorties.

I’m trying so hard to get photos edited and posts written and I should have another post for you this week with more Sally Hansen products – and a post featuring POC/WOC blogger Melissa Lopez. Please check back soon!
