Mani Monday – Let’s Talk!

Hey guys! Here comes another Mani Monday! Even though the color is not a “holiday” color – Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate-, it is one pretty color.

This is Let’s Talk by Sinful Colors. It is a nice purple/blue color, the only color that I know that comes to mind that is similar to this is Purple Potion by Sally Hansen. Although the Purple Potion seems to have pink undertones.

For this manicure, I used 2 coats of the nail polish. This color is not opaque at all so you will need more than one coat. I was going through my nail polish collection to find Purple Potion and as I did that, I found my Sinful Colors topcoat. I used the topcoat, and I have to say that my nails are holding up better, I think this topcoat works better than the Wet n Wild topcoat – although it is not as shiny.

What are you doing this week? Are you celebrating Thanksgiving? Black Friday? What nail polish are you wearing right now?

Mani Monday – The Perfect Green

So if you know me, or have been following this blog, you know that I have been on the hunt to find the perfect green nail polish, and I think that I just found it. I scored when buying this nail polish. I was scrolling through Amazon when I found this deep green polish, it’s Off Tropic by Essie nail polish, I knew that I was going to get it, but then I procrastinated.

That same weekend, I went to Marshall’s and while browsing I found the nail polish, for only $3.99, how awesome was that?! Don’t sleep on stores like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx, you never know what you might find.

While you’re using this nail polish, you might think that this color is opaque with one coat, but I found that if you use one coat, your mani will end up steaky. For this nail polish, it’s best to use 2 coats. After I let the nails dry, I used my Orly top coat and was on my way.

This nail polish is amazing, it’s the perfect green for the fall and you can add a red nail as an accent for the upcoming holiday season. My only gripe with this nail polish (I think, could also be the topcoat I am using) is that it started to chip after a couple of days. My manicure did not last a week.

QUESTION TIME: WHAT TYPE OF TOP COAT DO YOU USE?

 

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.

Mani Monday – Obsessed

Hello! For this week, I decided to use a “fall color” and went with Obsessed by Formula X. From my understanding, this was once sold at Sephora but not anymore, you can still find it on Amazon if you really like it.

I used two coats and my wet n wild top coat.
