of Revlon nail polish for $2.00. I was pleasantly surprised to find Girlie in one of the packages, this polish had been on my want list for a while.

Mermaid’s Tale

Today I went to my local CVS and picked up two Sally Hansen colors: Mermaid’s Tale from the Complete Salon Manicure Collection and Blizzard Blue for the Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Collection. The two colors really compliment each other; Mermaid’s Tale is a blue jelly with glitter and hexagon glitter in a green and blue which went on very smooth even with the annoying wide brush. The Blizzard Blue is a light blue that is iridescent.

I used the Mermaid’s Tale which has two coats over a clear base as a stand alone on my ring finger and then used two coats of Blizzard Blue on all other fingers. For the Pinkie and index finger I used a sponge and placed the Mermaid Blue over the Blizzard blue to create a fun and colorful scale look.

Sally Hansen

Sally Hansen sent me several colors from two collections to review. Three colors are from their Lustre Shine collection and two from their Gem Crush collection. I have always been a fan of Sally Hansen products so I was excited to get these in the mail and try them out.

The three samples from the Lustre Shine collection are Moonstone, Copperhead, and Azure. This polish is an iridescent and went on very smooth, I like the brush as it gives me more control when applying the polish.

Moonstone has two coats and it is a nice white with hints of pink, purple and green. This is a nice simple color that can go with anything but can also be used as a base for nail art.

Copperhead has one coat, I tried two but in my opinion one coat will do for this earthy color. The bottle has hints of green however when you paint the nail all you see is copper, I was really hoping for some green accent color.

Azure has two coats and is a deep blue with hints of silver. This was my favorite of the three colors and would definitely go great alone or used in some nail art.

The Gem Crush collection is a glitter base with hexagon glitter mix. The two colors sent to me were Be-Jeweled and Cha-Ching.  I LOVE both of these colors, the polish goes on easy and has a wide brush, I am not a fan of the wide brush but this worked well with the glitter mix. Both swatches have two coats over a clear base coat. I am not one to put glitter on for a pedicure but I will most definitely use either of these colors on a pedicure in the near future!

Be-Jeweled is a purple glitter with pink hex glitter.

Cha-Ching is a red glitter with silver hex glitter.

Deal of the week!

For those of you looking to get a good deal on polish this week be sure to check out Wet n Wild at Walgreens which is on sale for .99 cents through Saturday. I picked up six colors from the Megalast collection.

The usual price at Walgreens is $1.99 so 50% off is pretty nice. The collection has a Pro Brush called ManiCurve. I am not a fan of this brush even though the polish goes on fast and smooth there is just something that annoys me about this brush. I was very disappointed with one of the brushes as it was cut in a weird angle like the machine went haywire in the factory. I typically look at the brushes really well before buying any polish so shame on me for not catching it.

The six colors I picked up are: I Need a Refresh-Mint, Disturbia, Toxic Apple, Through the Grapevine, Break the Ice and White and Stormy. White and Stormy is a clear halo glitter that I used as an accent top coat. All colors swatches have a base coat and two coats of color.

Candy Sprinkles!

Here are three more samples from the Hard Candy line exclusively at Walmart. These swatches are of my favorite three colors in the Candy Sprinkles collection: Gummy Green, Pink Taffy, and Cocoa Smore. The colors are made up of multicolored hexagon glitter with a nice polish color which covers the nail in two coats. Each stroke of the brush leaves plenty of glitter on the nail.

I could not pick a favorite out of the three colors because I liked them all. Each swatch has a clear base coat and two coats of polish.
