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.

I’ve been in a funk all week long, and I’m just feeling low. And to tell the truth, I’m kind of upset about my nail situation. I like the nail art I’ve been doing lately but my nails just look horrible and I’ve been kind of ashamed/embarrassed about showing them on my blog because there are so many harsh critics on the internet lately. But eff it, you get swatches and nail art on my shitty nails. (P.S. Previous swatches of more Sally Hansen Mega Strength nail polishes here.)

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. ๐Ÿ˜€

Sally Hansen Mega Strength nail polish brush | Be Happy And Buy Polish

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* โค Continue reading
