Manicure: Sally Hansen XTreme Wear Mauve Over!




I've been so slack with my manicures lately! Once upon a time, I'd dutifully change my polish weekly, usually on Pamper Sunday (haven't had time for one of those in a while!). But recently, I've actually been so lazy busy as to let the lacquer wear off entirely. Not a pretty look!

I picked up Mauve Over a couple of weeks ago to cheer myself up (it was only around $2.50 on special at Chemist Warehouse, extravagant, I know!) so I thought I'd show it to you today. For some reason, I'm leaning towards nudes and subtle shades instead of bold reds and bright hues lately. I also feel like I want to pick up some shimmery, metallic polishes, but I probably should check my stash before splashing out.

So this is just one coat of Mauve Over from the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear range, a line I'm not overly familiar with. It applied really smoothly and I didn't even need a second coat. The brush picked up heaps of product, so I had to wipe off the excess multiple times with each application. I was going to apply a top coat but after five minutes of searching, I couldn't find one. So I guess it wasn't meant to be!

  1. Gorgeous colour and anything that goes on opaque in one coat gets a nod from me!

    1. Yeah it really is! I love dark nails too, but my nails are too crap at the moment for it (these photos are just of my good hand haha).

  3. My nails are in such bad condition after my shellac mani a while ago now, I've put them into rehab and have been nail polish free for a while.

    This colour looks pretty on your nails!

  6. I've been rather slack on the nail front as well. Mind you I've been in hibernation mode mainly so it kind of made no sense to worry about my nails. I have a couple of events coming up though, so may need to do something about them soon. Love this colour.

    1. It doesn't hurt to give your nails a rest from the polish anyway. You'll feel extra special at your events with a mani now!

  7. This looks like my kind of colour Di - one that goes with EVERYTHING! I so rarely paint my nails because I wear so many colours I'm afraid I'll clash, but this one might see me through the week xxx
