Sally Hansen No More Stains Spray-On Base Coat, .375 fl oz
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Vitamin Strength Serum, .45 fl oz
Long time coming with this review, but I do like, especially with base coats, top coats, and any nail treatments, to do a thorough review.
This is a spray-on base coat (as evidenced by the name). I do like the convenience of this, you could basically do this in your car or anywhere that you wouldn’t normally put on base coat. It has less smell than regular base coat polish, but there is a faint rubbing alcohol smell. It does dry fairly quickly and with a bit of stickiness (which I don’t mind normally). With my body chemistry, it did work well as a base coat. The only draw back I see is that it is fairly small, and priced about $9 (without tax). If I were going on a trip, I would pack this for sure.
This is an interesting nail treatment. I already have and use Hard As Nails Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil (.45 fl oz), which I like and use often. The pump on this seems to be a little strange, you have to press hard to get serum out but then too much comes out. I hope I just got a defective pump. The product itself comes out like hand sanitizer and rubs in quite similarly. It soaks in fairly well, and doesn’t dry too sticky. Again, I think the small size is better suited for trips or in the car or in a purse or bag. It’s priced anywhere from $5-6.
I have used both of these products since receiving them, and I like them both. I am unsure that at $9, I would repurchase the spray on base coat though.
1 coat of base coat
Tonic Polish Becoming, 3 thin coats
1 coat of top coat
I remember using this polish as part of a past manicure, but I never used it on its own. Oh yeah…it was this swirled magnetic manicure!
It’s quite the catching manicure, isn’t it?
deborah Lippmann Take the A Train, 1 coat and no top coat
I was so excited about this dL polish, it looks so stunning in the bottle! It’s got this grey/green shade going on that I personally love and in the bottle it looked like it might have a bit of holo shimmer. But sadly, that was not the case. I’m sure that if I had base coat on, the imperfections of my nails wouldn’t show so much, but it is a streaky formula.
Sinful Colors, You Goji, 2 coats and no top coat
I believe this is an older Sinful Colors but it’s new to me! I picked it up when I picked up the new mattes, new cremes, and the Naughty Nudes. This went on so smoothly but holy Hera it was a stainer! 😦
P.S. Have you joined the group Sinfully Polished Nails yet? It is the place to go for all SC related hauls, stashes, news, upcoming events, etc.
Quick post from my phone tonight! I found some more Sinful Colors makeup tonight at another Dollar Tree and swatched them real quick to show you. Forgive photo quality since I’m using my cell phone and my makeup has been on since 530 this morning! Hashtag real mom life here.

Sally Hansen Color Therapy Plum Euphoria, 2 coats over black
I am excited for two things: it’s Sally Hansen week and I have a project coming up that’s been in the works for some time that I get to share with you!
I don’t know if this is an older polish or a newer polish; all I know is that I was wandering Target beauty aisles (as one does) and came across it. I really wanted to love it because, damn. Look at it in the bottle!
I did use this by itself but there was literally almost no difference between over black and not, except over black is a bit richer. Yes, it’s pretty but not as pretty as I thought it would be. Womp womp.
