I maaaayyy have gone a liiiiittle crazy with the nail polishes at CVS. Springtime colors + 2 Sally Hansen coupons + the promise of $5 extra bucks with a $15 Sally Hansen purchase = me walking away with 5 Sally Hansen nail polishes.
Eeeeeek! Aren’t they beautiful?!
A nude polish has been on my to-buy list for quite some time. I did purchase the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in the shade How Nude #130 back in April to serve as my nude polish. While it lasts FOREVER without chipping, it wasn’t quite the right shade for me. It was a bit too yellow even for my skin tone (as I mentioned in a previous post, I have fair to light skin with yellow – and in some places like my face, pink – undertones). My sister said “it looks like clay” on my nails =/ The one in the picture above is the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in the shade Bare It All #105. Much MUCH better match. I would describe this one as nude with a hint of pink undertones (reflecting back on my last post, it makes a lot of sense to me now why this would work better).
I’ve also been wanting a bright pink polish. As with the nude polish, I did try one from the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line, in the shade Tickle Me Pink #410, which turned out to be a bit too dark for what I was going for. I’m hoping this All Bright shade will be more along the lines of what I have in mind.
I am super super SUPER excited about the other 3 shades. I’ve really been into the springtime hues lately, not just for polishes, but also for clothes and shoes. I bought the Miracle Gel in the shade B Girl #240 (see my post here), which was a beautiful mint color. Next on my list was a pastel blue, lilac, and I was toying with the idea of trying out white, so it just made sense that these three colors complete my ~$15 purchase (before coupons) – juuuust enough to get my extra bucks =)
Iiiii have a problem.
