I'm back! My cable/internet company really screwed up. My BF and I woke up to no internet or TV yesterday and didn't get it repaired until today. Our neighbors have been getting notices on their door from the cable company regarding payment of their account and it turned out instead of shutting off their cable they shut off ours! Annoying! Well all is fixed now and I have my sanity back. TV and internet gone at the same time is bad.
Back on topic! I like to keep my posts positive, but while going through swatching nail wheels I came across 2 products I completely regret buying. The culprits are....
Sally Hansen "No Chip" (hahaha) Acrylic Top Coat & Quick Dry Top Coat.
We'll start with Sally. I'd say for the most part I like Sally products. In my opinion Sally Hansen can be hit or miss especially when it comes to products for your nails, not polish. In the dark ages long ago before I knew the joys of Seche Vite I ran out of top coat (I was using Sally Hansen Mega shine, which is alright). I was in a rush and I grabbed this Sally Hansen No Chip. I got home and went on MUA to look at reviews and they were medicore, but for the most part pretty bad. Since, I already had it, I figured I'd give it a shot myself. The biggest joke about this product is its name "No Chip". This is chip city. I put this over my nail polish and within few hours I was chipping not just small chips but big chips. It was a disaster. I'm a big fan or Seche, but I'm not going to rub it in peoples faces. There are plenty of good top coats out there, but I would avoid this one. In fact I fixed the bottle for them.
On to Quick Dry Top Coat. I got this at Dollar Tree a few months ago for $1. I know it's a $1 you can't expect much and I didn't, but it's a dollar I could of spent on something else. This is not quick dry and this leaves your nails sticky. I waited an hour and my nails were still sticky. I ended up taking it all off and starting over. Blech, it's shame you can sometimes find great stuff for $1 this isn't one of them. I could of used that dollar on pretty nail polish! :(
That all being said, these are the only 2 products I really am disappointed by. There are of course nail polish colors that didn't turn out how I expected. However, since everyone has their own ideas on colors and different skin tones one color could look great on someone else and horrible on me, so I figured I'd leave those out. I might make post on those later though. :D
What are some nail products you regret buying?
Have a great day!
