Happy Monday Divas! It’s time to get the week started with MANICure Monday. I hope the weekend was good to you and you are ready for an awesome week. I am claiming joy, happiness, and good health.
I decided to go with something bright for this week, a fabulous neon green polish. There will be no turning down of the color for me! It’s bright in here for sure! The color for this week caught my eye and I had to give it a try. I figured for $1, why not? I found the polish at my local beauty supply store (BSS) while shopping for a moisturizer for my hair. Yep, I got side-tracked. LOL!
My intent for the week was to try the purple polish by L.A. Colors that I mentioned last week. I still want to see how L.A. Colors’ polish performs with a base coat. However, I wanted something I was feeling for this week instead so I went with today’s color.
The brand is Santee and the color is Neon Green. The thing I don’t like about the inexpensive brands is they are not 4 free. I had one polish that ate through the styrofoam plate I was using for nail art. No Bueno!
Now, this week I’m also trying a base coat by NK that I also picked up at the BSS for $1. Sadly, I somehow managed to split my thumbnail and I need to fix that before it gets worse. I think I can use my mending polish to fix it for right now. If not, I will have to use a teabag to repair the nail. I really need to give myself a full manicure because my skin and cuticles are dry.
Overall thoughts about the Santee polish
I love the color; however, the final color for me doesn’t match the color in the bottle. I applied three coats and it is still too sheer. I hoped by the third coat I would have the opaqueness I was after, but it did not happen. Having used three coats, it did change the color for me. I was a touch disappointed but not upset about this polish. After all, I only paid a dollar for the polish. I can’t expect it to perform the same as the more expensive brands.
What brand and color are you wearing this week?
