Nails of the Day

Since the sky is so cloudy and gross today, there's really no point in swatching a whole bunch of stuff. Although I've done indoor swatching, I'm learning that it's really best to have a sunny day to take pictures.

So, I used a simple red polish for today, to be removed tomorrow when it's supposed to be sunny. This is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Cherry Red. This is a really nice red for my pale and pink skin tone. It looks like a classic red to me. It isn't an orangey, tomatoey red (those usually look like shit on me), but a classic cherry red. The formula on this is nice and was opaque in one coat, but I used two anyway.

I also bought some Sally Hansen Insta Dri topcoat, which is what I'm wearing in these pictures. Eh. It's no Seche Vite, and I can actually get Seche Vite cheaper than this topcoat. The Sally Hansen topcoat DOES dry quickly itself, but it does NOT dry the layers of polish underneath -- I have a dent on my right thumbnail to prove it. Alas!




  1. Oh how I love a hot red!
    I don't know what I would do without my seche vite....just the thought....oh no!

  2. That is a beautiful color, I love a great classic red!
