Now I don’t say this often, but holy sh!t, this was a horrible nightmare of a manicure. These nails were so horrible that I had to take the polish off a couple hours after I applied it. I don’t know what went wrong…everything did.
*Backstory* – For the longest of times I have been looking for a yellow nail polish. I have never had yellow nail polish and I have always loved the idea of having yellow nails during the summer. They make your nails pop and who doesn’t want to look like they have the sun on their fingertips? I actually contemplated buying this nail polish for about a month, it wasn’t until I saw the polish at a Walgreens that I decided to see this as a sign to get it. This is Mellow Yellow by Sally Hansen.
I wanted to play with the polish as soon as I got home. But first, I went on Instagram to look at some ways others have applied and used the polish. Most of the posts used the polish to give nail art and only a few had a full yellow nail. One person that had a full nail described the process and polish as using nacho cheese to paint their nails. RED FLAG #1!!! Another person said they used over 3 coats to complete their manicure. RED FLAG #2!!! And yet another person complained about the formula, and this is something that I saw while searching for the nail polish, apparently Sally Hansen reformulated the polish. RED FLAG #3!!!
I used the polish anyway. The first coat went on very thin, it was very streaky and uneven. The second coat wasn’t that much better. Then I did something I rarely have to do with a Sally Hansen product, use a third coat. It was awful, my nails looked gooey and nasty, it looked like I dipped my fingers on some nacho cheese. I regretted it so much. The nail polish also took sooo long to dry. The polish also had bubbled all around the nail which added to the nastiness of it. What a fail. I don’t think I’ve ever been so disappointed by a nail polish.
I decided to take off the polish and use “Babe Blue” also by Sally Hansen, this was a step up from Mellow Yellow. On my thumb, I attempted some nail art. This flower looks like it has an egg yolk in the middle, but I still love it.
What’s your favorite nail polish? What’s the worst nail polish you’ve encountered?
Let me know!
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 honestly don’t know if I should be proud or ashamed at this point. Disclaimer: I have collected these nail polishes through the years so don’t think I buy and buy nail polishes every time I leave my house (although I do want to). Believe it or not, I through away some of my nail polishes. I’m renovating/redoing my bedroom so I decided that I should try to organize some of my things, including nail polishes. One idea I had for my room was to get nail polish holders/spice holders and mount them on the wall so I could see them but I don’t think I could fit all of these nail polishes on the wall without something falling down. After I swatched all of them (let me know if you want me to post the pictures!) I counted them all and I have over 120(!) of them. Dear lord.. So without further ado, here is my nail polish collection. Continue reading
Hey guys! These are my nails for this week. I was looking and looking everywhere for a green nail polish, mostly because green is a color that I don’t wear that often. I found this Sally Hansen nail polish in the color Green Thumb.
I used two coats of the nail polish, and I used my Wet n wild top coat.
QUESTION TIME: What is your favorite top coat?
Hey all! I know it’s been a minute (more like a 80 years) since I last posted, so I’m sorry about that. I’m nearing my last days of college and calling these days hectic would be an understatement. So many things to do, so little time…but we’ve got to pull through! Here are the nail polishes that I wore these couples of weeks.
For this first week I used an ELF nail polish called Mango Madness. Remember when elf sold nail polish? At least online. I’ve had this polish for quite a few years so I was surprised it still worked. *elf does sell nail polish, I haven’t seen it online, but I have seen sets of polishes at Forever 21* If you want to achieve this nail color but can’t find this exact one, use Bump Up The Pumps by Essie.
Here is a classic color, this has been one of my favorite nail polishes for the longest time. It’s Purple Potion by Sally Hansen. I love it so much I have 2 bottles of this color. I haven’t been able to find more bottles of this in store, but if I ever find them…you know I’m snatching them up. I like it because it’s purple, with hints of blue and pink. Very electric, very awesome!
Here are my Easter nails. Since I am graduating soon, I’ve been cleaning out and packing up things so I’m starting to use some nail polishes I haven’t used in a some time. I was very surprised at how well this manicure came out. I’ve had this nail polish for years and I they haven’t been used in a long time. The pastel green color is called Mint Sorbet by Sally Hansen and the purple/pink is Lilac Pastelle by Revlon.
