Sally Hansen Carnival

I almost never buy polishes without looking up swatches & reviews first but Sally Hansen Carnival just looked so fantastic that I grabbed it without doing my homework. Not a good idea! Most every review I've seen shows the sad truth, ugly bubbling is almost inevitable. I decided to try it out anyway of course & I had high hopes at first. It actually applied quite nicely with a decent amount of glitter over my previous manicure of Nicole By OPI Better After Dark. It didn't seem gloopy or bubbly at all & I applied Essie Good To Go thinking all would be fine. Over the next few hours tons of bubbles formed wrecking what is otherwise a fantastic idea for a polish. Sally Hansen Carnival is a matte glitter with a truly gorgeous & quirky color palette that I found irresistible but so far no good! I'm going to try adding some polish thinner & giving it another chance since I love the colors so much but this one is probably a dud.

Sally Hansen Berried Under

Sally Hansen Berried Under is from their Sugar Shimmer collection. It's a gorgeous color that I think is a pretty dead on match for Pantone's Color of the Year for 2104, Radiant Orchid. The formula is excellent, shown here at 2 easily applied coats that dry quickly. Berried Up isn't quite as gorgeous as my beloved Zoya Pixie Dusts (no one does micro-shimmer like Zoya!) but it's still very beautiful & unique. The color is so flattering on me that I immediately used this on my toes too. Looking forward to trying more!

Sally Hansen Cafe Au Lait & Distressed Denim


This is the sort of combination I can wear for days. Sally Hansen Cafe Au Lait topped with Sally Hansen Distressed Denim when my manicure started chipping. I will always love crackle polishes. They are so great when you don't have time to start fresh but you have a chipped manicure. I can just add a layer of topcoat followed by some quick strokes of a pretty crackle & my hands are saved.

If you'd like a bottle of Sally Hansen Distressed Denim for yourself, I've just opened a little storefront with various brand new polishes I've picked up over the years. Sometimes I see a closeout deal & I just can't help myself!

Sally Hansen Cafe Au Lait

Sally Hansen Cafe Au Lait has a great formula for a pale creme polish. Shown here at 3 thin coats that self level quite nicely. I love this shade with my skin tone too. Definitely a keeper!
 
Oklahoma springs are so windy! I couldn't resist this Threadless shirt several years ago. I have no idea why, but I just needed Mr. Choppy.

Zoya FeiFei & Sally Hansen Distressed Denim Crackle

Zoya FeiFei sure is beautiful! I decided to try out another Sally Hansen Crackle polish & found another winning combination. This is Sally Hansen Distressed Denim Crackle, a royal blue jelly crackle that looks great over sparkly polishes.

Sally Hansen Crackle Antique Gold

This is Sally Hansen Crackle Antique Gold over one coat of Sally Hansen Polar Bare. So delicate & pretty! The gold dries to a matte finish and the crackle effect works great over still wet polish.

Valentine's Day Nails Inpired By Yellow Owl Workshop

I've had this adorable Valentine's Day Card from Yellow Owl Workshop in my nail inspiration Pinterest board for quite some time & finally decided to give it a go. I love the results! This is much more ambitious than most of my nail art but was actually pretty easy, if a little time consuming.
I used Sation Snow White, Abbacadazzle, Overdressed Party, & Unicorns Are Teal. The dots were made with a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Black.

Valentine's Day Nail Art

I keep a Pinterest board filled with nail art inspiration from all sorts of places. Today's manicure was inspired by some adorable cookies made by hello naomi. Very sweet for Valentine's Day.

I started with Rimmel Pink Bliss and used my trusty Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens for the design.

Simple Floral Nail Art with Sally Hansen

I used a pretty cake I found on this Cake Wrecks: Sunday Sweets post as the starting point for this manicure. I keep ideas like these in my Nail Inspiration Pinterest Board. Sally Hansen Polar Bare as the base color & I used Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens in Orange, Yellow, & Black for the flowers. Very easy to do with nail art pens!

Fun Nail Art With Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens Inspired By Dressed Up Nails

I love playing around with nail art pens like these from Sally Hansen. I decided to try a version of this fun manicure from Dressed Up Nails. I started out with a base of Sally Hansen Peachy Keen & then doodled a multicolored pattern using Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens in Purple, Green, Orange, & Blue. Very much like drawing with a marker when you were a kid. You do have to wait a bit before adding a topcoat to avoid smudges. A topcoat is absolutely necessary though since these will just wipe right off without one. An excellent feature when you make a mistake!

Sally Hansen Peachy Keen


This is four coats of Sally Hansen Peachy Keen. It's a pretty polish but I have others in this color family that get the job done in less than 4 coats.

Sally Hansen Nail Art

Will called this manicure the pink pineapple. I started with a base of Sally Hansen color Quick Pen in Magenta & then used a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen to draw the pattern. My lines got a little blurred when I added a topcoat but they were still fun & looked great as long as you weren't too close.
