Sally Hansen Virgin

Ok, I admit that I have never tried any Sally Hansen nail polishes. I use a lot of their other nail products like my holy grail of cuticle removers: Problem Cuticle Remover with aloe vera. It’s fantastic and cleans up my gross cuticles instantly.  Today I was perusing through all the cosmetics at Rite-Aid (no, I was not looking at the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters…no!) and I saw that a lot of their Sally Hansen nail polishes were on sale…most at 75% off! Well, who am I to say no to a sale especially when nail polish is involved?  So I gravitated to the HD polishes display and ended up picking up 4 of those and 1 of the Diamond Strength polishes.

Oooooohhhhh shinny…..ooooohhhhh pretty! The three middle shades are duochrome so I can’t wait to try them out. The formula seems a little sheer so I don’t know how that’s going to work out.  It might be interesting to layer them over other colors. I want to swatch them now but I don’t want to take off my Konadicure from yesterday. I’m still in love with it.

I ended up paying under $10 for all of these so for the price, I will make them work! I’ll swatch them soon so check back.

      Do you have Walgreens or CVS? I also find a lot of deals there.

      I'll work on them soon but it makes me sad to take off my manicure. lol I am hoping to get the China Glaze Hunger Games collection soon so I will have tons of swatches to do.

    Yes we have Walgreens and CVS, my co-blogger Giselle works at Walgreens and that's where she gets most of hers. I like to find my polishes online. I've found this website called head2teobeauty.com and hunger games is 3 bucks a bottle. fyi

      I just got the collection. I also paid $3 a bottle with no tax and even better…no shipping costs. I have so many beauty supply stores in my area so I usually can get everything dirt cheap.

    Let me know how those HD polishes work. It seems to me like very few duochrome polishes are actually very duochrome-y so I hardly ever buy them from the drugstore. I really want the Beetlejuice collection from model's own, but when I saw a swatch just recently even THEY didn't look that great. Not nearly as great as I remembered seeing them when they first came out. 🙁
    Maybe if you layer those over black they'll be really good, even if they're not by themselves. (fingers crossed!)

      Nubar has some really awesome duochromes and they're very reasonably priced. I think one of my favorite duochromes is Not Like The Movies from the Katy Perry Collection. There are so many foreign polishes that I drool over but I really don't want to pay some of those crazy prices. I would kill to get my hands on some of the Ozotic multi-chromes but I will just continue to admire them from afar.

        Yeah, I have NLTM and it is really good, especially in sunlight. I'll have to look into Nubar. All the Ozotic, etc polishes kinda worry me cuz they're expensive and idk how it works getting np through customs. Have you ordered from overseas? Are you in the US?

        1. 28 February, 2012 at 2:39 pm

          I haven't ordered anything from overseas. It makes me super nervous too even though I know plenty of people who order stuff through llarowe and don't seem to have any problems. I was super worried when I ordered nail swatch sticks from Ebay cause they come from Hong Kong. lol Yeah, I'm in Southern California.

            Yeah I understand. I love nail polish but I also love my non-stolen identity and not having any problems trying to import polish. haha. I'm only half serious, but still am a little apprehensive.

    Pretty colors…can't watch to see your swatches. I can't believe you've never tried not one Sally Hansen color.

    1. 29 February, 2012 at 8:04 am

      I know! I actually have no idea why I hadn't tried them before so when I saw the sale and the awesome colors I couldn't resist.
