Sally Hansen’s Sugar Coat Review

Image

Warning: The below review was based on my personal experience with Sally Hansen’s Sugar Coat.

Of the numerous trends sweeping and seeping pop culture, nail art is at the top of the charts! From The Kardashians to Adrienne Bailon, it seems like everyone wants to have their own nail polish line! Illusion and textured are the buzzwords of the nail scene! The options are endless and it seems that everyone is trying to top one another. I mean, think about it, you can get holographic-esque nails!

After trying out China Glaze’s Matte nail polish, which worked heavenly, I was inspired to try “3D” nails. I was walking up and down through the aisles of Rite Aid on U Street when I saw a 2 for the price of 1 sale for Sally Hansen’s Sugar Coat. The advertising photos made it look not only dainty yet fierce, but easy to apply! After a bit of contemplation, I choose “Sweetie” (yellow) and “Cherry Drop” (red).

Before employing the nail polish, I even watched a video on how to apply just do be sure! I applied the standard two coats, but ended up needing an extra one due to the illumination of the yellow. After I could see the final product…I realized…I hated it! It looked like a bunch of tiny air bubbles that were hiding under my nail polish. The matte finish of the nail polish did not compliment it either, instead, it caused the nail to look very dry!

Needless to say, I took the nail polish off immediately – well not immediately because it takes thorough effort to get it off.

Would I recommend this product? Definitely not!

Flower Power?

One of the famous Spring trends of 2013, the flower crown, is seeping its way into summer, as well! For all my boho beauties, this is one to definitely pay attention to! Personally, my fave thing about this trend is that you can rock it for almost any personal style. I repeat, NOT a one trick pony! I’m talking from the chic rocker to the minimalist, and back! Image

The beautiful and daring fashionista Vanessa Anne Hudgens, who is known for her usual bohemian style, is wearing a simple lacy white outfit, paired with round sunglasses and a dark lip! Not to forget her adorable bindi and bangles, too! As you can see, this is very different than how Keira Knightley displayed her floral crown. She decided to take another route, exhibiting a smaller crown with a chic summer gown and nude lip!

Needless to say, there are so many ways to wear this memorable accessory! From what I can tell, this is no one hit wonder, so you have ample time to prepare yourself to join the flower power movement!
