Totally not as expected

I'm disappointed. The polish I used today was such a let down! Its First Blush by Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear.  It was SOOO not the color I expected it to be =(

Ok so I'm sure I should have expected this but the color was way too sheer.  This was three coats and you can still see the tips of my nails.  Aside from the color, the application was totally easy, but a little watery. The polish did not stay where I put it, making cleanup take super super long.  On a positive note the polish dried really quick (I even changed my pants right after I painted them and there was no smudging!).  Well, anyway the color is a middle ground between a white and a cream pink.  In my last post I had mentioned that I was on the prowl for a white/pink cream and although that is how I described this color...this is not what I had in mind.  I want something more like this...

See how much different?? Good thing I had this Sally from a few years ago and didn't buy it expecting a specific color. Expect another post in the next few days, I can't stand this color already.


  1. wow youre doing such a clean job compared to your earlier posts!! looks great (=

    sorry it wasnt the color you expected.. that happens but it still very pretty!

    also just so u know, your font is really hard to read, i have to adjust my browser settings everytime i come to your blog. maybe you could make the font size bigger? that might deter people from reading your stuff. its such a cute font thought it just needs to be bigger

  2. thanks! i've picked up a TON of tips from other blogs I follow which have helped me out big step is getting a better camera (all these are taken with my iphone so they are not the best quality)

    I just adjusted the text size to 14pt...if you are still having trouble please let me know, i appreciate you telling me!

  3. yea i use my dads camera which i thought was broken but magically started working again. its not the best in the world but it does have the macro function which is great for np, especially picking up all the little details hidden in the polish!

    it is much more legible now and i dont have to adjust my settings anymore :D yay!!

  4. I'm glad it is better now, thanks for sticking by and still reading!!
