Mani Monday – Hazard!

img_6443

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

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 – I Red A Good Book

For this week, I decided to go with something simple and classic – and nothing embodies that than having red nails.

I went with I Red A Good Book from Wet n Wild. I love Wet n wild nail polishes. Their brushes are my favorite, the wide ones. I find that when I use a wider brush, my nails are more uniform and they are less streaky.

I really loved the formula, although I felt like it took longer than other nail polishes to dry. Not too much, but I’ve had quicker nail polishes.

For next week, I have a couple of events (wedding, birthday party) and some new dresses that I want to wear so I am going to do a lilac/pastel color for my nails. I can’t wait to show you the nails and outfits.

Mani Monday – Lavender Out Loud

For this week, I wanted to try a new, bright color for spring. While I was out shopping, I always stop by the Wet n Wild section. They always offer fun and affordable makeup. I have bought some of their nail polishes before, most of them range from the $1-$2 range, but these colors caught my eye. One reason it caught my eye was the color, my favorite color is purple and I am a sucker for any kind of purple. Also, the bottle states it will give you a gel manicure in one step….but is that possible?

I bought this nail polish for $4.99, most of the nail polishes that I buy are cheaper so I expected great things from this nail polish. Apart from the color, there isn’t any spectacular about it. For this manicure, I used two coats of nail polish, I was very surprised at how fast the coats seemed to dry. I researched this nail polishes before applying and everyone said to apply a top coat to the nails, it defeats that 1 step wonder process, but if you didn’t, they say, the nails would chip almost instantly.

 Below is a picture of my nails after one coat, I liked the opacity of it, but I needed more, that’s why applied the second coat. After waiting about 30 minutes after applying the second coat ( I want to make sure everything is dry) I applied a nice coat of top coat. They looked amazing…but they soon became undone.

I painted my nails on Saturday, it is now Monday. Although most of my nails are chip free, there are little chips on my index and thumb. Not nice. This color is amazing and cute for spring, but for $4.99, I’d say you’re better off buying more cheaper colors to experiment this spring. I would give Wet n Wild’s Lavender Out Loud a C. Although the color is beautiful (I contemplated also getting the mint color) and the application process is easy, it does not stand the test of time, it will chip within days.
