Sally Hansen Pacific Blue

Happy Monday Lovely Ladies,

Today I have a gorgeous Sally Hansen polish to show you. Pacific Blue is a bright, almost neon blue crème. The color is adorable. I like to use it for both mani and pedi, especially during summer time.

The application is easy, although the formula is on the thicker side. I think it will get even thicker with time (common for many SH polishes). 2 coats are enough for the full opacity. Durability is great (no chipping for 5 days).

If you don’t have Sally Hansen polishes where you live, you can find some dupes from other brands. Pacific Blue is a close dupe for Nails Inc. “Baker Street” and Sephora “Myrtille” ( you can check the swatches here).

Revlon Naughty

Hi Girls,
Sorry for my absence lately. It’s been a rough summer…working as a bee.

Today I have more mainstream nail polish to show you. 
Revlon Naughty is a purple shimmer with grey undertones. It is a well-known dupe for Chanel Paradoxal. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money for Chanel nail polish Naughty is a cheaper alternative. The quality of Revlon polish is great. It is opaque, but not thick. 2 coats are enough. It dries fast and quite long-lasting (3-4 days without chipping).

Seuss by Whimsical Ideas by Pam

Seuss is a bright blue jelly with silver and red glitter of various sizes. Pam was inspired by Dr. Seuss and 100% transformed the image into the nail polish.

Overall, the formula is great. I used 3 coats, because the base is on a sheer side. The polish base is on the runny side, so big glitter tends to move towards the tips. However, this problem can be easily resolved with the slower and more careful application. Maybe because of the formula, this particular nail polish doesn't have durability of other Pam's polishes. It chipped after 2 days of wear. On the other hand, I generally do not wear nail polish for more than 2 days, so it's not a big problem for me personally.

Tuesday Taurus by Pretty & Polished Swatches

Hello Lovely Ladies,

I hope you all had a great weekend. Today I have Tuesday Taurus by Pretty & Polishes to show you. It was a limited edition nail polish released by Pretty & Polished for her birthday. I absolutely had to get it since I’m a Taurus too 

Tuesday Taurus is a sheer sky blue base with golden shimmer. It contains a lot of tiny pink glitter as well as medium purple, large pink, silver, blue and green glitter. I would recommend layering this polish over the base of the similar color. I used OPI I Don’t Give a Rotterdam.
