Ulta Made Me Do It…

Every time I turn around Ulta is having a sale of some sort. 20% off, buy one/get one half off, $5.00 off your purchase, etc. Not to mention the fact that you can gain so many points and get money off your purchases as well.  Needless to say that I used this opportunity to pick up a few Sally Hansen nail polishes that were on my wish list:

Blue My Mind (Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure)

Blue My Mind is absolutely gorgeous!!! It reminds me of China Glaze’s Frostbite, which is probably why it caught my eye. I am a sucker for blue nail polishes and this is no exception. The formula is amazing and the color payoff is wonderful. But that price! It retails for about $8, which is kind of expensive for a drugstore nail polish, but I think its well worth it.

Dive In (Sally Hansen Triple Shine)

Dive In is much more subtle than I was expecting, but its a beautiful color nonetheless. The first coat was a bit thin and streaky, but I only needed two coats to achieve the look in the photo above. Sally Hansen has a lot of vibrant colors in this particular line so if you are in need of a super pigmented color, check it out!

Are you a fan of Sally Hansen nail polishes? Is there any particular line that you like? I looking forward to trying more colors!! I hope you all are enjoying your week!! xx

Sally Hansen – Coral Reef

sally hansen - coral reef

Since Spring insists on being fashionably late, I thought I would break out some Spring nail polishes to help me cope with that fact that its almost April and we are still dealing with 35 degree weather here in DC/Maryland. Whatevs…Anywhoo, I wanted to share this gorgeous Sally Hansen Extreme Wear nail polish with you guys.

The first thing I love about this color is the fact that it is super affordable and retails for $2-$3 per bottle. The second thing I love about the color is that it is rich in consistency and has amazing color payoff. In the images above I used two coats but could have easily used just one to achieve this look. This bright coral pink will def grab folks’ attention this Spring.

As a bonus I thought I would add an accent to my ring and pinky fingers. I used American Apparel’s Meteor Shower, which is actually a really cool top coat. The gold flakes look like sharred confetti. Don’t sleep on American Apparel folks! It’s another affordable nail polish brand that goes for about $6 per bottle ($5 if you buy 3).

I hope you all enjoyed this post…Talk to you all soon!

I Got The Blues

So I was in Ulta the other day, and I stumbled upon this Sally Hansen nail polish that I have been searching for forever! Now you all know I love my blue nail polish, and this one…well, it’s just no different. And for $2.59 I went ahead and bought two of them thank you very much!

Pacific Blue initially reminded me of Baker Street (see post here) from Nails Inc. Though it isn’t as bright, it is just as creamy and looks great on! The formula was very smooth and easy to apply. It is opaque in one coat, but for the sake of long lasting wear I would suggest applying two coats.

As for the color on my ring finger, that baby is Revlon’s Coastal Surf. While is was $7.99 in Ulta, I grabbed it out of Walmart for a whopping $4.97. Don’t mind if I do! This one is also an easy to apply cream color. I was so excited about these colors I had to try them on together somehow. Check out the swatches below:

How gorge are these blues?! I do apologize for the short nail on my index finger…of course it broke the other day. I hate it when my nails break on my left hand, the hand I use for all my swatches! Lol…Anyway, I hope you all enjoy these blues. I will talk to you all soon. Smooches! XOXO
