Product Review: Fun Nail Colors via Sally Hansen

So I've been working on this post for a while, it's just been sitting in my Drafts waiting for a Review Tuesday to come up. Lo and behold I saw this post on MTV Style and knew it was time to post it!

They did a write up for bold yellow nail polish here about yellow being in style year-round "Yellow is one color that continues to fade in and out as a hot trend, even as we transition from summer brights to more subtle fall shades," says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, artistic director of the nail polish brand O.P.I. “Yellow works well with tan skin, so keep your summer glow throughout the autumn with self tanner. Yellow nails also look great when paired with gray wardrobe hues.”


Yellow is one of my all time favorite colors, so I definitely agree with their post that it can be worn year-round! Yellow is great match for so many colors and give you a nice POP of color when you need it. For the last year or so I've been on the hunt to find a great yellow polish that's good quality. I've tried a few brands and they were either runny, super sheer or looked highlighter yellow. When I tried the highlighter yellow one (some off brand from a random small store) the ladies in the nail salon were making fun of how ugly it was. Needless to say, they were quite rude  about it and not friendly fun about it at all and I've never gone back. Anyways, I've finally found a great yellow color in none other than my favorite brand Sally Hansen!! Check it out:

The color is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail polish in Lightning (two coats) and lived up to my expectations of the polish. It wasn't runny or sheer and the bright color really popped. I used only two coats and it was perfection. It dried really quickly and was true to the color in the bottle, which is why Sally Hansen has become my #1 favorite brand of polish.

Here's a picture of it against a recent outfit to see how it really stands out:


So what's your thoughts? Do you like bright colored polish? Do you think it's appropriate for anyone out of high school or college? I think that nail polish is a fun way to be expressive, creative, and have a little fun. Nail polish is rarely on for more than a week so I say why the H not just go for it?
