Straight to the pretties:
Essie - Overnight
- purchased at Rachelle's (beauty salon) for $0.50 CDN
Overnight applied nicely, due to the fab formula and great pigmentation. I needed two coats for perfect opacity. It wore well, with only tip wear after three days.
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear - Gunmetal
- purchased at Rexall (chain drug store) for $2.95 CDN
Gunmetal applied exceptionally well (as have all of my Xtreme Wears), requiring two coats for full coverage. It also wore well, with tip wear after two days.
Icing - Roger That
- purchased at Icing for $3.75 CDN
Goodness knows, I love a teal/tuquoise polish, so I could not resist picking up Roger That the last time I was in an Icing store. The colour is a gorgeous sea colour that makes me long for warm summer days (to all my Aussie and Kiwi friends, I am so jealous of you all right now).
Roger That applied well, but I needed three coats for full opacity. I am not a fan of applying more than two coats, so this was a bit of a disappointment. I was also left unhappy by the wear - I had tip wear and major chips after two days. Colour me unimpressed at the polish formulation.
