I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster’s Vox Box program. All opinions are completely my own.
Now that that’s out of the way….O…M…G! If you saw my video of my unpacking my VoxBox then you know I was super excited about the nail color included. (hint hint…follow me on YouTube). If you know me personally then you know I’m super excited about nail color in general. I’m really exploring new options. I’m not typically a trendsetter at nails like some of the other bloggers I follow or some of my sorors….but I want to be.
Thank you to Sally Hansen for improving my nail color life! The day after I got the box I was out at my local Ulta looking for a new 4 way nail file and I saw the Magnetic Nail Color display. Hmmmmm I thought, that’s not what I was imagining when I read the description. And I thought my color was purple but this color says red….hmmmmmm.
Now here’s a few tips:
Prep your nails first. File them, shape them, buff them, fix up your cuticles, all that good stuff.
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. I messed up one of the nails and tried to “fix it up”. Don’t do that. Follow the directions.
And it’s simple. Base coat, one coat of polish, wait a few minutes to let it dry, apply the second coat individually – placing the included magnet over each nail after you polish it for 10 seconds. Don’t do all 20 fingers and then use the magnet. Use the magnet on each finger as soon as you paint it the second time. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that’s going to take forever. You’re wrong. 10 seconds times 20 fingers is only a minute and 40 seconds. Then let them dry for a couple of minutes and brush on your top coat. So basically there’s only one additional step to your regular process. And the results are amazing!
I have gotten more compliments at work this week than ever before. Actually I’ve never gotten compliments on my nails before at work. LOL At first I was a little worried that these zebra looking waves might be too much for my style but I LOVE THEM! I am going out to buy more colors ASAP and I really hope that Sally Hansen comes out with even more colors. I’d rock a yellow in a minute!
