At work, I take breaks and read the internet. Somehow I ended up reading beauty products that you need. It actually mentioned another color from the same line, which I got, and then when I went to the store I fell in love with this color from Sally Hansen.

Thoughts: When I saw this at the store, I fell in love. It's a gorgeous light purple color with a sheen. Since I never tried this in this line, I wasn't too sure what to expect.
It reminded me of Butter London nail polishes. Not because of the shape of the nail polish, that it comes with two tops.
Here's a closer look at the nail polish.
Here's a look at the brush. Compared to OPI (I consider this medium width), this is on the wide side.
Here's how it looks on my nails. This picture does not do it justice. It's a lot more gorgeous in person! I applied Orly Calcium Shield Basecoat, 2 coats of Sally Hansen in Drama Sheen, and topped it off with Butter London P.D. Quick Topcoat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I might be the only one but I've always wondered why they would have 2 tops? I would think it would increase the price of the product since most of the cost comes from packaging. Yes, you heard me right. Packing is more expensive than the product itself. With that said, let me get back into the topic. I know a lot of people don't like wide brushes but I actually do. I think it's easy and quick to paint each nails especially around the cuticles. Even though I like medium to wide brushes if the quality of the product isn't good, then the brush is useless. Thankfully, this isn't. The consistency of the product is on the medium. It's not too thick that I have to paint quickly and cannot go over the spots I already painted. It's also not too thin that it's streaks and leaks all over the nails while painting. It's my perfect consistency and very easy to use. It goes on smoothly, and there's no streaks and bumps. Lastly, there barely was any chip after a week. It looked like brand new even my co-worker noticed. I don't know if it has to do with the nail polish but I think the basecoat helped. I've been using this amazing basecoat from Orly, Calcium Shield, that has made my nail polish last longer. With that said, I still love this nail color even my co-worker wanted to use it.

* Comes in a wide variety of colors.
* Wide brush; quick and easy to paint.
* Medium consistency.
* Easy to apply.
* No streaking/bumps.
* Last a week without any chips.

* Comes with 2 tops.

Would repurchase: Yes.

Thank you! I never was a big fan of purple nail polishes until the past 2 years.

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! I can see you liking it. :)

Ahleessa said...

Ahhh~ You're like me with big brushes... hehe~

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! Do you wear purple nail polishes? For some reason, I only remember bright reds on you.

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! I can see you rock this shade. Too bad it's not available there. :(

I do wear light blue and purple but have been wearing vamp and red a lot. I actually have scheduled a post about sheer jelly polishes. :)

Ahleessa said...

Ahhh~ You don't wear all the colors of the rainbow.
