Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes

We all know how much I love Sally Hansen, right? Remember that time I questioned if she was even a real person? Yeah. Who knows? And who cares. All I know is Sal Han better keep on keepin’ on because she rocks in every single way. Take these Xtreme Nails polishes for example.


Let’s talk about the awesomeness of these guys, shall we? First up are the sheer stars. I didn’t bother to swatch these on my nails because, well…they are super sheer. They make for fantastic layering but don’t do much on their own.
(l-r) Teal-y Cool, Set the Stage, Twinkle Twinkle

Next up on the “Pretty Sheer” list would be Pink-y Ring. A neon pink glitter that looks like it shoooould reach an opaque finish but falls short. I applied 3 coats here.

And then there’s Pumpkin Spice. If this shade doesn’t have to ready for Halloween, I don’t know what will.

The following three polishes are a lot more opaque with stunning foil-y finishes. There’s Teeny Greeny Bikini…who was smudged right in the middle of this photoshoot.

Time to Shine falls between a gold and silver polish. It’s the perfect blend of both colors.

Midnight Sky is by far my favorite of the bunch. Oh la la laaaa…


Which polish is your fav? Wait…I won’t make you choose, girlfriend. But what you should do is snag some of these if you’re lookin’ to add some spice to your nail polish collection. I mean, honestly…they’re only $3 a pop. Three cheers for recession-proof beauty! To be so affordable, I find this line of Sally Hansen polishes to be one of my favorites. The color selection is always exciting and the formula can’t be beat. Ooooh yeahhhh. 8)

  • Pumpkin Spice, Pumpkin Spice! I love it!

    • Brittany

      It’s one of my faves! It’s not quite Halloween yet and I’m still rocking it.

  • Okay, I usually visit here and I find some things to possibly check out….but when I saw the Sally Hansen topic in my reader, I was like oh, I know about Sally Hansen. But then I saw pumpkin spice and was like I gotta have it.
    Once again, you have something I didn’t know about. 😉

    • Brittany

      Woo hoooo!

  • McKenna

    Ahhh I loooove Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear! My favorite nail polish ever. Cheap and I never need a top coat. I’ve never tried the sparkly ones before. I like the Time to Shine, and the sparkly ones would be good over a dark color.

    The last one is so pretty!

    • Brittany

      That one is my fav!

  • Cocoakeke

    Wow- so is Pumpkin spice layered over a black? If not, that’s a HOT color for fall!

    • Brittany

      Nope, that’s Pumpkin Spice alllll by herself. Stunning, uh?

  • Ugh! You are fueling my nail polish addiction! Are they hard to remove because from my experience glittery nail polishes are the worst.

    • Brittany

      Yep, the glitters are tough to remove. Which is expected of all glitter polishes. :(

  • Thank God my extra bucks coupon printed out last week. I can now add Pumpkin Spice, Time to Shine and Midnight Sky to my collection!
