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.
What color are you wearing right now?
This week I went green!! Sally Hansen’s Green Thumb is one of my favorite nail polishes of all time. I love it! I’v never had a green nail polish before and this one is perfect, it’s super opaque. I love the formula and the shade. For my accent nail, I used a an old gold polish from e.l.f.
I used 3 coats and top coat to achieve this look.
Hey guys! for this week, I decided to try a nail polish I’ve never done before. It’s Break The Ice by Wet n wild. My sister received a mini wet n wild collection a while back and she gave some polishes to me.
Here is the little bottle it came with. It’s so cute. I thought that the brush was not going to be workable but I was wrong. It was more or less the same thickness as other brands, but it was not wide like their normal-sized megalast polishes.
I love this color, but one thing I did not love was the application. The nail polish was streaky, I had to apply 4 (!) coats to achieve opacity. Here is how it looks like with the top coat on.
I would have loved it more if the polish was thicker and more opaque.
I think I’m going to play with some nail stickers for next week’s Mani Monday!
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?
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!
