Mani Monday – Battle of the Yellows

Over the past couple of months, I have been obsessed with yellow nails. What’s not to like? They brighten your outfit and they can give you that boost that you need. One of the things that I did not realize going into shopping for yellow nail polishes was how hard it was to find a cute yellow with a great formula. Today I am comparing two yellows: Yolo Yellow by Sinful Colors and Mellow Yellow by Sally Hansen.

First one up is Yolo Yellow by Sinful Colors. Spoiler Alert: This is the big winner, it’s a knockout. First win: the color- it’s super bright and yellow, it’s a true bright yellow. Second win: I only needed two coats to complete this manicure, and it actually dried. Third win: Although it’s only a couple of cents of difference, this one is cheaper than the Sally Hansen nail polish.

There were so many problems with this nail polish I don’t know where to start. The nail polish color itself is not a true bright yellow, it’s more like a nacho cheese yellow. I’m not returning the nail polish but I think that this polish will be best used as a nail art color and not a full nail color. This color was so sheer that I needed 3+ coats for this to work, and because of that, the nails did not fully want to dry. It was a disaster.

In short: If you’re looking for a yellow, inexpensive nail polish, get Yolo Yellow by Sinful Colors.

Nails of the Week – I’m Alive!

​No, I’m not dead, sorry for the lack of updates these past few weeks. It’s been a combination of writer’s block and a bad cold that has been keeping me away from the computer/blog. I’ll try to be more consistent with my content for the rest of the month.

Today I come with an amazing combination of colors. One of my favorite colors is Lie-Lac by Sinful Colors and I decided to jazz it up a bit and add a cool shimmer/holo/dual chrome topper. I used You Just Wait.

Here’s a look at the nail polish in motion, it’s so beautiful.

 

After the topper, the lilac colored nail polish turned into a cool blue color. At first I thought I wouldn’t like it that much since I love the lilac color, but I did love it!

These two bad boys are available at Walgreens (they have one of the biggest displays ever!), find them at your local store and get your mani on!

How have you been? What colors are you wearing? Are you wearing fall colors, or are you still hanging on to summer?

Mani Monday – Hazard!

Let’s get back into the swing of this – it’s time for a Mani Monday!!

This week, I decided to recover from that awful manicure and go with a nice coral/orange color – perfect for summer.

This is Hazard by Sinful Colors. I believe that as far as inexpensive nail polishes go, Sinful Colors might be the best.

Although this color was a bit streaky – I had to use 3 coats on some of my nails, my nails were not goopy or sticky, like I felt with Mellow Yellow from Sally Hansen.

I topped the nail polish with my favorite top coat – the wet n wild wildshine Clear Nail Protector 

 

What are you wearing on your nails right now?

Mani Monday – On A Stellar Trip

For this week, I decided to mix and play around with different nail colors. I put on two coats of On A Trip by Wet n Wild and over that, I put a layer of Stellar Explosion by Sally Hansen. Since the glitter polish also serves as a top coat, this was all I needed for these gorgeous nails.


I love this color combination and this beautiful manicure is going to become one of my go-to’s.

What’s your favorite color/nail polish combinations?

 

Mani Monday  – Back to Black

I know I said I wasn’t going to do a Mani Monday because I’m redecorating my room, but I just had to.

This week I am wearing Black Satin from Rimmel London.

I love black because it goes with all my outfits, I think I’m going a lighter route next week.

What nail polish are you rocking this holiday week?
