Today I went to the store and bought some nail polish. Let's rewind a bit, shall we?
Monday I painted my nails with a colour I love. I believe it's called Peachy Keen from China Glaze. I saw it on Pinterest and knew it was the perfect colour. I had to order it on line to get it. Today is Thursday and most of it is gone off my nails. It chips very easily. I even made sure to put on a base coat and bought a new No Chip top coat. It started to chip off the next day. Now I admit, I'm hard on my nails. But this came off way too easy. I want something tougher.
I had gel polish done professionally and I loved it. So, I thought I'd try it my self.
The nailpolish itself is quite nice, with a wide applicator, but it's the top coat that acts as the gel. It's very thick. The polish dries quite quickly. The whole process took less than 5 minutes.
First coat on. Doesn't look too bad!
All done! Just FYI, I used the colour Tribal Sun (620). I wanted something summery.
Today is June 23. I'll repost back in one week!
July 2, 2016: Here we are a little over a week later. I can't say that I'm impressed with this nail polish really. Nothing really gel-like about it. But it is a good polish. I'd probably give it 3.5 out of 5. On to the pictures, shall we?
Again, I'm very hard in my hands. So this is probably about normal for me after about a week of nail polish. This is my left hand, btw. I'm right handed, but surprisingly by right hand doesn't look quite as bad.
It might be hard to see, but there are small line cracks in the polish at the edge. Revlon diamond cot promises not to do that. I'll be trying that next.
I will buy more of the Sally Hansen stuff, but at $12.99 a bottle, not many. But they have such beautiful colours I can't wait to try that it might be hard to resist. But we're all intitled to treat ourselves every once in a while. 😊
