On Wednesdays We Wear Pink- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in “Very Cherry”

1 Comment

Hello all!

So, hopefully all of you have seen the movie “Mean Girls” (you know, before Lindsey Lohan went crazy). If you have, then you’ll know where the saying “on Wednesdays. we wear pink” comes from. So, I decided to borrow the well known teenage girl adage to create a new segment for my blog. Every Wednesday from now on, I’ll be featuring a pink nail polish. I have a ton of pinks in my polish stash, so what better way to show you them all than through a day specifically dedicated to pink! Hopefully you’ll like these pinks as much as I do!

For the first “Pink Wednesday”, I’ll be showing you Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Very Cherry. To me, the name is kinda misleading, because this color isn’t even close to a red, and cherry generally conjures up the image of red. Instead, this color is a bright, slightly-darker-than-bubblegum pink jam-packed with shimmer. There’s pink and silver shimmers, and the silver really adds a 3D shiny effect. Despite its somewhat frosty effect, brushstrokes are not an issue. The glitter is not holographic, but does reflect the sunlight beautifully. Too bad the sun wouldn’t cooperate for me today! The formula for the polish is a little thick, but nothing major, and applies beautifully and self levels. It takes 2 coats to reach full opacity, but I thought 3 coats looked the best (and I also messed up a nail and had to cover it up, oops). Pictures below are 3 coats of Very Cherry, no topcoat.
