No chit chat today. Straight to the pretties:
MAC - Blue India
- purchased at maccosmetics.ca for $14.50 CDN
Blue India applied nicely - good consistency, easy to move around the nail, decent brush (although I wish it was a tad wider) and good coverage, with two coats for opacity. Wear was okay - I had very visible tip wear after two days, with no chipping.
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear - Mellow Yellow
- purchased at Rexall (chain drug store) for $1.99 CDN
Mellow Yellow, like most other yellow polishes is a problem child. I applied three thick coats and still had bald spots and streaky areas. I think a fourth coat would have remedied these issues, but with that much polish, my manicure may never have dried (as it was, the three thick coats took longer than normal). If I had applied thin coats only, I probably would have had to use five. This is too much trouble, so I settled for the less than optimum coverage. Wear was good, with only tip wear after two days.
OPI - Jade is the New Black
- purchased at Trade Secrets for $ 9.95 CDN
Jade is the New Black applied nicely. Good formula, nice wide brush, great pigmentation (covered perfectly in two coats). Wear is decent - only tip wear after two days.
