… and by “sun-kissed” I mean brown. Lol!
So you all know that I rarely paint my nails, however, this summer I have been going CRAZY for nail polishes! Back in high school and college, I used to love painting my nails, but somewhere between college graduation and now, I lost my passion for all things girly… perhaps my focus of work made me forget how much fun it was to pamper myself!? (I’ll save that epiphany for another time and video on my second channel...)
Anyway, this summer, I have been getting down and dirty with nail polish again, and I have to say, I love it! (Although, I must admit, my nails were a lot healthier when I didn’t paint them…) So I’ve played around with a few and came across the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line; I absolutely LOVE this line of polishes!
There are a few Sally Hansen brands that I just don’t like, either the texture is too thin and runny, or the color just doesn’t look good… at all… but these brands I really do like! And it seems that almost every color is a hit!
The new trend this season was pastels, nudes, and matte colors and although I rarely follow trends, I couldn’t help but love this one! But it was really hard to find a pastel that looked right with my skin tone, and also a nude that was actually “nude” for me, lol! Meaning, a lot of times what is sold as “nude” is meant for fair skin and nothing darker.
So when I found this collection of pastels that ALL worked and even a NUDE tone that matched well with my skin tone, I knew it was blog-worthy! So check out a few of my favs from the collection!
This is my favorite color! It’s called “Delphinium” an it’s a beautiful pastel purple with a blue undertone:
This next color is a funky pastel teal color called “Fairy Teal.” I never really wear blue polish, but this teal-blue was so pretty!
This one below is a beautiful, soft pinky-peach color called “So Much Fawn.”
… and last but definitely not least, the nude color! Ahh! I love this polish so much! FYI, there is a polish in the collection called “Nude” or “Naked”?… can’t remember, but it’s definitely not a nude that would match my skin tone, the one below is called “Choco-Latte” and it’s the perfect match!
Aren’t these gorgeous colors!? Yea.. so I think I’ve been bit by the polish bug again, and I have to admit, it’s a lot of fun playing around with them! I usually only stick with a bright pink or a French tip, because I never find colors that work for me, so I’m so happy to find this line!
You can find the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Line at Target and Walmart! Have fun!
