Eye Candy

While walking through Target I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this end cap of Sally Hansen nail polish. Not only was it the most amazing display of eye-popping color that I have ever seen grace the presence of a Target end cap, but I am admittedly addicted to buying nail polish. Sometimes I buy it out of necessity (like when I just have to have the new Shatter by Katy Perry for OPI) or sometimes I find a color that reminds me of someone or some place (like Essie's Mink Muffs reminds me of the Veit girls and NYC). I was impressed with all of the hues and types of polish the brand had to offer. I am usually not a "Sally Hansen" type of girl but I could not resist grabbing a bottle for a little instant gratification. I could pick from 3 different kinds: HD with multi-dimensional shine $5, Insta-Dry with drying time of 60 seconds $4.54 or Xtreme Wear with xtreme strength and shine $2.04. Frankly I didn't care how fast it dried or how strong it made my nails, I am all about the color. I chose Peachy Breeze from the Insta-Dry collection. It's a lovely shade of coral that is exactly what I had in mind for spring. I plan to try it on Sunday and I'll post pics with a review of the quality. If it stays on without chipping for at least a few days, Sally Hansen might have a new customer for life. If I can get a bottle of polish for $2.04...that's amazing (and cheaper than a gallon of gas)!


  1. Can't wait to see the new color. I just got a mani/pedi for the first time in months and chose a very light pink. It felt right for spring.


  2. Hey Emily! I posted a pic of the new color on Twitter. I'll post a quality update on the blog in about a week. I'm curious on how long it will last without chipping.
