About a month ago, Keith and I were in CVS and I was looking through the nail polish area, as usual. I was rubber-necking the Sally Hansen Crackle display, and almost ran over this...
It's a tube-a-plenty of polish! Then I saw the sign, which alerted me to the fact that this whole tube was only $9.99. Then I counted the polish and realized that was less than a dollar per bottle. How could I pass up such a deal, even if it turned out to be a totally crappy product? It would at least be fun to play with! So, I bought it. Keith rolled his eyes. When we got home, I immedately took off my current polish and decided to try every single color at once. I think sometimes it's ok to revert back to Jr. High.
There really are some lovely shades in the collection. The light blue and the yellow caught my eye the most, though I rarely have high hopes for yellow polish. I was still excited to try it.
The yellow surprised me a bit. It wasn't horrible to work with. It wasn't perfect, and there was a tiny bit of cuticle drag, but overall, I was impressed with every color that went on my right hand.
Even that ballet slipper pink on my thumb gave excellent coverage. Not a streak to be found! And even in the extreme closeup, you can barely see my nail line.
The light blue ended up being a real stunner. It's a perfect shade of baby or sky blue, in my opinion. And again, I didn't have any real issues with any of the colors that went on my left hand.
I'd say in the long run, my favorite ended up being that lovely bright coral red on my thumb. It went on so smooth, and I probably could have actually gotten away with 1 coat.
Overall, I am very impressed with the Shades of the Season colors. If you're in CVS and see this tube-o-polish, pick it up. It's worth it for these staple colors.
