Thanks A Lot Walgreen's...

So I have been at Walgreen's everyday this week buying a couple bottles of nail polish.  Most of them were Sinful Colors, but today I picked up a couple Sally Hansen to diversify my haul  for the week a little bit.  

From L to R: Sinful Colors in Nirvana, Queen of Beauty, Pandora, Summer Peach, Forget Now 

Part 2 from left to right Frenzy, Hottie, Irish Green, and Mint Apple.
 Part 3 from left to right Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Golden-I, Lacey Lilac, and Sally Hansen Salon Nail Lacquer in You-Gurt Style which I got at Big Lots for $1.50.

 I realized that since I have been really actively buying nail polish there are a bunch I haven't used yet, and figured I ought to swatch some so I know how they behave.  I have never swatched anything before so, if anybody has questions don't hesitate to ask.

First we have Sinful Colors in Summer Peach.  I don't get the name on this one.  This polish is a bright orange neon as far as I'm concerned, and there isn't much peachy about it.  In the picture there are 3 coats.  It was a bit streaky going on the first couple coats but the 3rd cleared it up nicely.  I skipped the base coat and I'm happy to report I experienced no staining.  

 Next we have Sinful Colors in Irish green.  I love the color on this one.  I love greens, and this is maybe one of my new favorites.  I found it with the neons at Walgreen's, but beyond the bright green color this polish behaves nothing like a neon.  It's a jelly!  I love jellies!  It's sheer of course and pictured is 3 coats.  It goes on pretty smoothly and doesn't cure to a hard finish, but I really love this polish.  I highly recommend it.

the last of my swatches today is Sinful Colors in Nirvana.  I'm typically not big on brown, but this one is kind of different.  It's a beautiful grayish brown cream polish with great coverage.  This is only 2 coats, and I feel like if my first coat had been a bit thicker I might have been able to pull off a single coat.  Usually I would say Browns are more of a Fall/Winter color, but this shade could easily work all year round.   

Thanks for reading!
