Right on the Nail ~ Sally Hansen Limited Edition Insta-Dri 4th of July Swatches and Reviews


Sally Hansen Quick Brick (2 coats)

Sally Hansen just renamed this polish because I found some swatches online that were obviously not this same true tomato red creme color. This had the best application and formula of the three and only needed 2 easy coats. 

Sally Hansen Tag, Ur It! (2 coats)

Tag, Ur It! is a stark white creme that is a bit streaky on the first coat, but evens out fairly well on the second. I do wish it was more self-leveling than it is. 

Sally Hansen Vandal Eyes (3 coats)

Vandal Eyes is a sky blue color with very subtle shimmer. Let's just go ahead and call this a creme because you can't see any shimmer here. It was quite sheer and needed 3 coats for full opacity.

Happy (almost) 4th of July to those in the US. I know, I forgot to wish my Canadian friends Happy Canada Day, sorry! Today I have a limited edition set of Insta-Dri polishes from Sally Hansen for this special day. While not all of them are true American colors (I'm looking at you, Vandal Eyes), they are still pretty. I'm still not a fan of the wide, tapered brushes on these polishes, especially with the narrow bottle top. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!

These will run you about $5 from drugstores, but make sure to look out for sales. You can find more about Sally Hansen on their TwitterFacebook, and Instagram pages.

Right on the Nail ~ Zoya Summer 2015 Paradise Sun Collection Swatches and Review: Aphrodite



Zoya Aphrodite (3 coats)

*press samples*

Hi guys, the next few nights I am going to post the other summer collection from Zoya that features shimmers and glass-flecked polishes. As an aside, I noticed on Twitter a few days ago that Zoya now has a NM Naked Manicure line that features color perfectors as well as a separate basecoat and topcoat. I don't know much more than what the website states, but I am intrigued to say the least.

You guys will all be shocked, but one of my favorites of the Paradise Sun collection is Aphrodite. It's a bright red color that has purple and orange glass flecks. It has more of a jelly consistency compared to the Zoyas with the same type of look. It comes to no surprise that this will need either 2 heavy or 3 light coats to fully cover any nail lines. I used 3 easy ones for the photos above. It reminds me a bit of some of the tomatoes we have growing in the garden right now (we've already harvested a few so far).

These retail for $9 and you can find out more about them on their websiteFacebookTwitter, or Instagram pages.

Right on the Nail ~ Polish 'M Swatches and Review: Flower Power



Polish 'M Flower Power (3 coats)

My name is Audrey and I applied too much cuticle oil before taking pictures. My apologies, dear readers. I would like to say it won't happen again, but you know...things happen.

Flower Power is the final white crelly I have from the popular indie brand, Polish 'M. And here I thought Neonista and Encore! were bright and glitter-dense! Flower Power is full of red, pink, purple, blue, yellow, and black glitters in flower, hexagonal, and square shaped glitter in a white crelly base. The flowers are the prominent glitter, and are also the most prone to sinking. I used 3 coats for the swatches, and didn't worry about getting any of the flowers on the first coat, and was more careful about their placement on the second and third. I had no issues at all getting enough glitter on the nail, but I found that dabbing was often the best method to get it to go where I wanted it to.

Right on the Nail ~ Polish 'M Swatches and Review: Encore!



Polish 'M Encore (3 coats)


I hope you are having a great Saturday! It's a little cooler here today (for the first time in weeks), but of course it is raining. I think tomorrow is supposed to be nice at least. The second white crelly of the trio is called Encore! and what an encore it deserves, indeed. Where do I even begin? This contains tons of multi-colored glitter (mostly red, purple, yellow, and blue) with hexagonal, circle, and star shapes in a white crelly base. With all the glitter in here, I had no need to fish for any glitter. I did, however, turn the bottle upside down for at least 20 minutes. For the most part, when glitters like these come in I automatically store them upside down until I use them. The formula was a bit thick, but not in a bad way. I used 3 coats for the swatches above. I am a huge fan of Polish 'M polishes and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone.

Right on the Nail ~ Polish 'M Swatches and Review: Neonista



Polish 'M Neonista (3 coats)

I feel really bad about showing some of these crellies from Polish 'M because they sold out and aren't for sale anymore. Do you guys want me to show the rest of them? The set consists of 3 white crellies that contain different types and color of glitter. Neonista contains neon circle glitter with tons of iridescent flakes. Have I stated how much I love circle glitter? I used 3 coats for the swatches above, but you could definitely put one layer over a white polish. I just happen to like the subtle hints of color as I added layers. I made sure to leave the polish upside down for at least 20 minutes before applying it and I had no need to fish out the glitter. It's hard to see from the pictures, but Neonista also has a ton of iridescent flakes that mostly flash blue. I must say that I completely adore this color, especially since it is an affordable price ($8).
