Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Review

I am painting my nails at least twice per week.  I find that nice manicure not only never fails to improve my mood but also somehow increases my productivity. How can you not be productive with red nail polish on?

But there is one product that I often neglected in the past –  base coats.  A good base coat should make your nail polish last longer, protect the nails from staining, make them smoother, which would make the nail polish application easier, and maybe even strengthen them.

Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Review

However, I wasn’t pleased with any base coats I have tried in the past, they took forever to dry which made the whole process longer, and

New Beauty Purchases

I was looking for a new top coat, as I have finished both of Mavala ones (here and here). Based on all the raves, I’ve decided to get a Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri, finally.

Since I wasn’t very happy with my base coat, the brand’s Double Duty Base & Top coat seemed like a good option to try, too.

Sally Hansen Insta Dri Top Coat and Double Duty Base and Top CoatSally Hansen have so many products to choose from, that I’ve spent at least 30 minutes in the shop reading about them all.  I hope that my picks won’t disappoint.

While I was browsing the nails section, I thought about getting some new

It’s  cold today and snow is everywhere (which makes me happy) so I thought that it’s a perfect time for a dark blue nail polish.

The only dark (well, relatively) blue which I have is Sally Hansen Blue It so I’ve decided to wear it today. I have to say that it is an amazing colour, I only wish it stayed on my nails for a longer time.

I am wearing one layer of nail polish and a Seche Vite top coat. I should have used 2 layers but it looks ok with 1 layer in real life, I guess it looks kind of streaky because of the flash. By the way you can actually see the snow on the background.

And what  nail polish are you wearing this week?

Thank you everyone for taking a part! I really love when you share with us all!

This is  how my little brother painted the nails of his girl for the first time in his life.

You can see some black lines near the pastel and light shades because originally he used the black nail polish but then removed it (not completely as you can see).

If you are interested in the colours he used: butter LONDON Yummy Mummy, Illamasqua Viridian, Sally Hansen Blue It, Maybelline  Wonder Violet, Essence Undead?, Illamasqua Alarm, Inglot #949 ,Barry M Berry Ice Cream not sure about this one, Maybelline Coconut Crystals.

Nails of the Day: Sally Hansen Chocolate Nut

Ok, this is the only photo I took before my camera died so I am sorry for the quality.

Today I am wearing Sally Hansen Chocolate Nut nail polish and it’s a metallic brown with red undertones. I’ve bought several Sally Hansen nail polishes some time ago and I find them quite nice for the price tag.

This is how it looks like on the second day. On me it stays on for 3 days but on me almost all nail polishes last for 3 days and professional nail polishes like OPI stay on for 5 days at least.

I think this is a perfect colour for fall!
