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?
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?
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?
Update on my computer: it’s dead. I’ll get a new one by the end of the week so life (and posts) willl go back to normal. You never know how bad I needed my laptop til I didn’t have it. Here’s a mani Monday that was a bit of a fail.
This mani only lasted 3 days before my nails got so ratchet I had to take it off
I used Sinful Colors’ Dream On. At first I loved the purple-ish color on the bottle. The formula was matte which I didn’t like, so I used my orly topcoat and changed many things. The color changed to a more red color and the Polish was no longer matte. Maybe that contributed to the chipping. Less than 5 days later the nail polish had totally chipped. My nails were so ugly I decided to just take off the nail polish.
For this week, I decided to go with polishes I found at Sally’s. They had a clearance sale and I bought 2 Orly Epix nail polishes, along with the sealing topcoat for $2.50 each, so I was very happy about the savings. I bought Such a Critic, which is a nice purple color. It looks like a purple color with pink undertones on the bottle.
One of the first things that I noticed was that this nail polish was super light. I used 3 coats of this nail polish. I waited around 15 minutes before applying each coat, just to make sure that the polish was dry. After the third coat, I applied the seal coat. This is the first time I use an Orly nail polish and this particular type of colors are the flexible colors. These type of nails require two steps: the color and the top coat that comes along with the line.
I love the color, it is a cute purple color and it is great for summer. The only thing that I did not like about this nail polish is that as it dried along with the top coat, the nails became streaky and uneven. If you look closely at some of my nails you can see that in the middle of the nail, it almost looks translucent. But from far away, I guess no one will be able to tell.
I love the colors, but I just wish that the consistency was better. But for $2.50 each, I will take it!
