Greetings, fellow nail enthusiasts. How is your week shaping up?
Today I have a polish job that I am not sure how I feel about. Sally Hansen HD in Hi Def. Not so impresses, actually. I like the colour. Lime green fun. But the polish isn't my fave. It is sheer, I applied three coats and at some angles, it is opaque but at others, I have wild VNL. It is frosty-shiny and shows some brush strokes. Application was okay. This polish is easy for even this sloppy polisher to handle. I had not too much clean up to do. For me, anyway. lol
Drying time is long with this polish. Now, to be fair, it is a nasty humid day and that may have something to do with it. But even with Seche, Hours and hours later, there is a slight tack and when my nails hit together, they stick ever so slightly. Maybe this is a polish best applied and worn in dryer weather? I might have to try that. :D
Two pics to show. First one is in natural indoor light and the second in flash. I am sorry that there is no sunshine pic. But there is no sun, today. It is a Monsoonalicious day and deeply cloudy.
The polish bottle is my China Glaze Strong Adhesion base coat. Love that stuff. It works great for me. But I dislike the brush for base coat application. So, I dumped out that nasty Sally Hansen White On! and cleaned out the bottle with acetone and now I have a bottle and brush I like better for my base coat. :D Ew! I just saw all the fingerprints and smudges on the bottle. Sorry about that.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope that you are having a terrific day and that your polish never bubbles. :D
