Review: Sally Hansen Misbehaved

It's tricky, being a nail blogger and having to deal with flying 22 hours from Toronto to Melbourne.  Not so much the flight - I have resources to deal with that.  It's more about how I'm going to go more than a day without doing my nails.  I hate it when they chip as I end up picking it all off and that's ever a good look.  Instead, I decided to go with my most reliable Sally Hansen Salon Effects, Misbehaved, the fishnet stocking print.

Using my normal application technique, I whacked these on.  There's something really durable about this particular pattern.  I've worn these for five actual days before and not wanted to claw it off so victory there.  I also like the pattern, nothing too obvious and in your face, just patterned and non-chipping.






The Verdict:  Always a good one this one.

So, I might be a bit flakey with posts over the next few days but it's only because I'm literally either in the air or at my parent's house and their SATELLITE INTERNET isn't 100%.  I'll be featuring a lot of guest posts (thanks to everyone that sent them in, I got them all!) so keep your face pointed in this blogs direction, it's about to get guest-posty

  1. Yeah, I don't know what it is about this particular pattern, but it's the only one of those that stayed on my nails more than a day or two without chipping. AND, bonus, I have gotten more compliments when I use this pattern than with any other of the stick on nail strips.

  2. Great idea for a long haul--I haven't used these before, mostly because most of the patterns I've seen look fun for maybe an accent nail but are a little much for me to do a full mani with. This is one is a cute compromise, though. Fun but, like you said, not all up in your face. ;)

    Hope you have an awesome trip! I'm planning a long-distance trek this summer too and am not looking forward to the nail situation. On the plus side, nail shopping I can't do here!

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
