Sally Hansen - Lavender Envy

Well, my nails are still looking pretty rough after I broke every single one while moving last weekend and sadly, this polish is just not the most flattering - but hey, I figured I better show you this one as proof that not every manicure is a success. This is two coats of Sally Hansen - Lavender Envy from the Xtreme Wear collection. The color itself is not so bad - it's a very sheer purple with greenish blue micro shimmer - but I think the Kleancolor - Matte Magic topcoat I used screwed everything up. 

Kleancolor - Matte Magic is a very thick and goopy top coat that takes forever to dry (are all matte topcoats like this? I have only ever tried this one, as I'm not a huge fan of  matte polish). It made the polish bubbly and it smeared and wrinkled and made a glob around my nail sticker. 

I'm going to be perfectly honest when I say I hate this manicure, but I'm just too lazy to do anything about it right now. Come Monday, hopefully my nails will have recovered a bit, and I'll do something much cuter than this! 

What manicure of yours did you absolutely hate?


  1. I've used Hard Candy's matte top coat before and I've never had trouble before. I actually like it a lot because of how fast it dries and how nice the matte finish comes out in the end. :)

    1. Interesting! Will have to try it, because I am NOT a fan of this one. I had one bad experience with a Hard Candy polish, but I am willing to try again! hah :)
