Listen up, beautynistas…if you’re in a nail color rut, I have a color for you! I’ve had this nail polish for a while but it had gotten lost in the rotation for a while. I recently rediscovered it and was delighted. Blue is one of my favorite colors, so I’m a sucker for a great shade of blue, and this one is gorgeous.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color retails for about $2.89 at Target, WalMart, or your local drugstore. There is no argument that this is an amazing price for a great shade of polish that will wear well and last for a while.
Blue It is a beautiful, opaque true blue. This shade is not distorted by any greens, purples, or other undertones. It is blue for the lover of blue! It’s also a rich, bold shade–nothing pastel or shimmery here. 😉
Blue It is also an easy paint job–it is completely opaque in one coat, but what you see here is two coats; I used a second just to get it nice and even. With two coats, it does stay a little tacky for some time–so if you get antsy, this one might be a bit of a challenge for you. I ran mine under cold water to speed up the drying process a little bit, and with having done that, it ended up taking about twenty to twenty five minutes to completely dry. Long story short, paint your nails, put on an episode of Big Bang Theory, and just don’t move til it’s over. 😉
Finally, I’m very happy with the “long wearing” claim of this polish. I’ve had a few that really didn’t live up to their “long wear” name at all, but this isn’t one of them. Once dry, it really is “hard as nails” and chip resistant. It’s been a few days, and I still haven’t seen a chip or a sign of wear. This polish is holding on really well. I am hoping it will keep lasting throughout the rest of the week, but I will keep you posted!
Overall, for just $2.89, this is a really pretty shade of true blue, a pretty easy paint job, and actually lasts. Blue thumbs up! Oh, wait…was that cheesy? 😉 Just kidding, of course it was. Check below for more pictures and a link to buying info!
