Sally Hansen Nail Art Contest


My boyfriend wonders if I really need another nail polish. I say yes! And thanks to my lovers over at Sally Hansen my collection of nail polish is now 100+. But for good reason.


I was asked to participate in Sally Hansen’s I <3 Nail Art Contest. And boy did I have fun. I was sent tons of runway ready colors perfect for this spring season (that seems to be hiding from us all). I was presented with the task of creating a look “Inspired By The Runway.”

I choose this look from Alessandro Dell Acqua’s Fall 2013 runway. I had saved this imagery on my fashion board a few days before this challenge just because I loved the colors and sparkle together. Very easter-chic. 

I couldn’t really figure out whether the model here was wearing silver or gold. So I did an Ennie-Meanie-Mynee-Moo countdown and gold it was.

I used the Insta-Dri polishes in Presto Pink and Blue Away. I paired those pastel colors with one nail of the Salon Effects in Glitz Blitz and one nail of Xtreme Wear in Coin Flip.

What I love the most about these polishes is that Sally has totally switched up the brush. It’s flat with an oval shaped top. This allows the polish to spread over the entire nail and kinda simulates how we actually paint on a canvas. I swoon for these polishes! I tried to do a heart on a few nails. That was an EPIC fail. I need a little more practice with that.
