Guest Post from Stacie: Fun With Black and Silver

Hello, Be Happy and Buy Polish readers! I’m Stacie from wacie.com and I’m your guest poster today. I have a black and silver skittle mani that I hope you’ll like. For this look, I used Digital Nails‘s Pandorica (black holo) and Wow (silver holo), Sally Hansen’s Black Out (black creme), OPI’s Push and Shove (silver foil), and Indigo Bananas‘s Moonlight (Clair de Lune) (silver flakies). I used top coat on every nail but the middle one. All photos were taken in direct sunlight.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Motley Hue | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Motley Hue is a pretty basic berry creme nail polish. It sure did look pretty though under Let’s Get Digital yesterday though, right?

Check back later today, I’m going to have another pretty polish combo!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel The Digital Overload nail polishes [partial] swatches + review

Press Sample buttonGood morning all! I’m going to quit whining about my lack of sleep as you probably don’t want to keep hearing about it. I’m happy that my baby is healthy & growing, so I’m attempting to focus on the positives. Today’s polishes come to you via Sally Hansen’s The Digital Overload Miracle Gel nail polish collection, of which I have 4 polishes.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel World Wide Red | Be Happy And Buy Polish

First up is World Wide Red. This is a jelly red-coral, not as orange as it seems here. (My camera hates these kinds of reds, my apologies.) This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Gigabryte | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Next is Gigabryte, a bright sunny yellow. Formula was typical for a yellow – streaky! This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Next It’s Digi-Teal and it’s slightly more green-toned in person. This is 2 coats of no top coat.

This is 1 coat over Motley Hue (which you’ll see tomorrow).

I will be doing a wear test soon with the top coat, but you can see a previous wear test with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat here. I’d love to know your thoughts on these polishes, so sound off below in the comments!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish Twiggy

Purchased by Me buttonBack when I hit up some stores for clearance polishes (see Milani Blue Print, Sally Hansen Make a Splash), I found Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Twiggy. Considering I’ve been on the look out for neutral polishes lately, I picked it up.

This is 2 coats and no top coat. It self-leveled really nicely and I had no problems with application.

It reminds me a lot of a khaki raincoat. It’s just a really great neutral! What color kick have you been on lately?

Sally Hansen Make a Splash nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! Quick post this morning – it’s my 14th wedding anniversary today. I was looking at wedding pictures the other day and thought “Wow, we look like babies!” haha 😀 Anyway, I picked up Sally Hansen Make a Splash on clearance the other day at CVS and wanted to share it with you.

Make a Splash is a sheer grey-blue shimmery nail polish.

This is 3 thin coats and no top coat. Formula was a little hard to get even. It is a clean, classy color though. I loved how it made my nails look.

Well, not sure my hubby and I will get to do anything fun for our anniversary (because baby & kids) but I’m looking forward to many more years to come with this great guy. 🙂

Hi everyone! I’m back with my favorite mainstream polishes of 2015. Just like yesterday’s favorite indie polishes of 2015, what I’m showing you today isn’t necessarily a polish that was released in 2015, just a polish I had on the blog. In chronological order:

Re-Swatch Wednesday: Sally Hansen Hypnautical

Good Wednesday morning all! Our household is getting geared up for the start of school next week and everyone is running around freaking out – with the exception of my husband who has the most calm demeanor. LOL! Today I am showing you a nail polish combo that has been popular on the blog since I first posted it: Sally Hansen Hypnautical.

I no longer have Violet Vintage, so I’m using 2 coats of Sally Hansen Water Orchid as a base with 1 1/2 coats of Hypnautical over the top – here with matte top coat.

This time, I had trouble getting those larger flakie pieces out of the bottle, which was a little disappointing because I really still like Hypnautical. Do you ever re-visit a polish combination and are let down?
