BLUE ME AWAY!
I’m really liking Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear Polish, I think this is the third color this month I’ve bought in this exact brand. I saw this at CVS the other day with all the other colors and it was like it was screaming “buy me, buy me”! lol. Well you know what I mean, this color just stood out and I feel like it's probably going to be one of the last summerish colors I'm going to wear. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, I probably still have a few more colors to sneak in before fall.
When I applied the second coat I was like whoa! this is definitely a bold bright color but extremely pretty at the same time. I always use my Sally Hansen INST-DRI top coat, but I guess it’s time to buy a new one. Before I even went and applied it on my nails I could tell just by the brush that the polish was getting thick and gooey (I think that’s the word to explain it lol). So I had to use a top coat that came with one of the nail art kits I have. I feel like it worked well, especially because I still had my INSTA-DRI speed drops that I swear make my manicure last twice as long. Anyway, that’s my little top coat story…
I wanted to do some sort of nail art or decals with this color and I thought pink and yellow would make the blue pop even more. Nothing fancy at all, I just used L.A.COLORS ART DECO in pink to make a few lines. Then I went through my old nail art kit that has stickers, gems, decals, etc. and I found pretty little yellow flowers that matched great with the blue and pink. ( I thought so anyway). This would actually be a really pretty spring look.
QUICK TIP: To really ensure that your nail polish is sealed and dry, wait a few minutes after applying your polish and soak them in ice cold water for a few minutes. I was hesitant to try this at first but afterwards I could feel that the polish had hardened and was confident that I wouldn’t have any chipped nails the next day
