Crap! Crap! Crap!

Hello gentle readers.

I was forced to head right back to Shortie Town, today. I got careless and a tragedy occurred. I was unable to affect a repair and out came the grinder. Again. *sigh*

So, back to short. What to do with my new shorties? Why, wear red, of course. :D This red is an older Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish in Brick Wall. This polish was gifted to me by a very kind fellow blogger. And boy is it ever a hit with me. I am a sucker for a good red jelly. And that is exactly what this is. For this mani, I applied two coats and topped it with Seche Vite. All photos taken in afternoon sun.

I don't know what is with my gap on my ring finger. It happened after I applied my Seche Vite and I missed the melt and didn't get it cleaned up before I took pictures. Empty headed slag I am. So, yeah... Weirdness there. Sorry about that.

This pic was taken before topcoat. Look how insanely shiny and squishy this stuff is, even topcoat free.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Brick Wall is a blood red jelly. It is translucent but highly pigmented. I had perfect coverage in two coats. The formula is gorgeous. Silky, smooth and applies beautifully. But I had to be careful; hitting my cuticles resulted in staining if I didn't clean it up fast, fast. Happily, it was so easy to control, I had little cleanup. What I did have to do was mostly fussbudget refining. From the smell of this polish, I suspect it isn't B3F. Probably why it applied so beautifully.

I would love to see this polish as a holo. Shit! I think I just had an orgasm, thinking about it. lol

Okay, so... What think you? Do you own this polish? If so, do you love it as much as I now do?

Have you entered my giveaway for a Karmin hair straightener? We are counting down the final few hours. Clickety-click by 11:59 PM MST, tonight to get your last minute entry in.

Time for me to run along, I suppose. Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great evening and may your polish never bubble.


  1. Sorry about the breakage. I like that red alot.

  2. Wowww ! I don't own this polish but I will definitely pick it up if I see it around! You can't go wrong with the Xtreme Line prices! It is beautiful on you ;)

  3. I had to shorten mine too they started spliting =[ I never knew red can look so good on short nails though! I love the color you used!

  4. This color looks great on you! And I bet it'd look great with a holo on top, too.

  5. This is cute on you and I like your nubbins. Whenever I sheer mine down, they grow back fairly fast. :) I hate finding "glitches" on my nails after I'm done with the mani - especially when I can't see them until the photos. blah! btw, I didn't notice anything til you mentioned it. :)

  6. Your 'short' nails look great! They're what I'm trying to grow mine out to - I recently had a few breaks as well and unfortunately the beginning of my nail's free edge is quite a bit below the end of my fingertip :(

  7. This was my favourite red when I was a muggle! :D

  8. I like red on shorter nails they look cute

  9. You are all so sweet. Thank you for your kind words.

    I never thought that red would be appropriate for short nails until I started reading blogs and tried it for myself. Now, when I go nubbins, I also go red or vampy. :)

  10. Oooh, I had this before! I bought it when they had all of the white caps on sale. I don't have it now, but I did swatch it before, it IS hot. Your swatches look great! It would be HOT as a holo!

  11. HI!
    Sorry about you nail breakage...
    I know exactly how it feels...
    But great red and look very well on you!

  12. It's gorgeous! And you know what? I love the shorties. LOVE them.

  13. This colour looks great & your nails look really nice at this length!

  14. Aww... Thank you girls. I am blushing, here.

    I like my longer nails but I have to admit, I am not hating my nubbins. They sure make typing easier. :)
