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. πŸ˜€

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. πŸ˜› 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.
