I've been doing a poor job blogging about my beauty interest. Truthfully I'm just getting into makeup (a year) but I've always been a nail polish addict.
I would always give my mom pedicures and pay for mine at the salon. Unfortunately the funding in education world is at an all time low. Initially to cut cost, I would get a salon pedicure once a and keep it tidy until the next visit. Now I do it all myself.
I've started painting my fingernails which I'm really not good at doing. I've used the Sally Hansen Salon nail polish strips. My opinion? Love them when I can buy them BOG 50% off but that hasn't happened lately with all the buzz surrounding them.
My general rule was no more than $2 for a bottle of polish. Exception to this rule was the fact that I'd been searching for a white polish that wouldn't look like I used white out sitting at my desk while the students were testing.
I found it! Sally Hansen's Lavender Cloud. It has the slightest purpley pink tint. I know you can't tell but believe me if I'm writing about it, it was a SCORE.
Downsides do exist. Cost...yikes (I'll reveal at the end of the post). The polish worked great on my hands. Two coats and I was done. I cut my nails down shorter than usual. Now my feet were a different challenge. They required more coats. The polish was streaky & thin. The brush is big and awkward.
I maneuvered these roadblocks and look at the result (: I'll be wearing this for a while until I get bored. I change colors about every two weeks. Sometimes more often if i have time and we know I have zero extra time waiting around to be used.
What do you think? Too white & not for you? Or will you be heading to your local beauty section for a bottle? Warning I paid $8 for this. Yes a splurge but I'm going to use every drop, ha haaaaaa!!
Be sure to catch up here. There's some good things happening. Don't want you to miss out.
