NOTD: Sally Hansen Extreme Wear

Posted on: April 29, 2013

Sally Hansen Extreme Wear 170 Deep Purple with 250 Blue It half & half manicure. Talk about Blew It, I Mis-spelled it, it is Blue It. Dang, I hate that when that happens! These colors always seem to photograph as the same color but in real life they are totally different. Bright purple metallic and bight blue metallic. I wore these specifically because I wanted to add a matte top coat. I think they would look great. But, there’s a problem. Now you all know I’m a fan of Sally Hansen nail polish, all the lines are good, affordable nail polish. I’ve had this polish on less than 24 hours and can you see the tip wear? Also, I have 2 chips, actual chips. Do you know how seldom I get an actual chip?

I haven’t even done much since I painted my nails, like really I’ve done nothing but play on my iPad. Don’t judge me, I live alone, the breakfast dishes will get done sometime today, maybe, but the point is, if this “Extreme Wear” does this while doing nothing, I wonder what it would like after actual housework? I was going to take it off but maybe I’ll leave it on and update this post later on today.

💅. See you in a bit….

**UPDATE** so after a few hours, if even that of house work here’s what my nails look like. First of all let me preface by saying I did clean my kitchen pretty thorough you know how sometimes you start and you just keep going, well that’s what I did today, cleaned cabinets, under the fridge and stove all that besides the regular dishes. The only house work I did was a load of laundry. Really no big deal.


These were not picked at before the pics, although I have pretty much picked all the color off. I’m not sure because I’ve had Sally Hansen Extreme Wear before with no problem. I think it is the metallic finish just does not get along with my skin chemistry, whatever. Maybe I should break up with the metallic finishes for a while, see other finishes, and maybe we can get back together another time, say around the holidays? You know there are plenty of polishes in my cupboards so I’m sure I’ll find another one to love in no time at all and I’ll be saying Extreme Who?.

💅. as always, thanks for stopping by!

That’s unusual Judi.What top coat did you use?The colours are nice anyway,maybe it’s the metallic finish as you said.


My usual Seche-Vite. I think it’s the metallic finish because I’ve worn the Extreme Wear so many times in so many colors. I reall wanted to try using a matte top coat on them, I bet they would be pretty. I may still do that one of these days. HOOE you have a great day Thanks Linda!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
