I seem to be undergoing a blue nail phase. When I saw Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Extreme Wear nail polish in #240 Blue Babe on 40% off offer I just needed to have it. In the bottle it looked like milky periwinkle, almost pastel, with silver shimmer. It appeared to be both pretty and unique.
In real life it's brighter than it looks like in the bottle. It's a milky warm-toned blue, where shimmer is barely visible, but it adds depth.
The polish is pretty, but the formula combined with the applicator made putting this on so messy.
The formula is pigmented, but very runny, the brush wand is long and it picks product not only on the brush itself, but also on the stick's length. The product keeps dripping during the application, flooding the cuticles mercilessly. There also appeared some bubbles here and there.
There's definitely a learning curve involved, but the result wasn't all that bad in the end and topped up with Seche Vite it looked really nice and wore well for a good couple of days.
