Sally Hansen Celeb City

(I wore this ring because I thought it went great with my silver polish and I was inspired by some of Brooke's latest pictures of her nails with a fabulous cocktail ring!)

Sally Hansen has revamped their Xtreme Wear nail polish line and I couldn't be happier. I first spotted these over at Steph's Closet and I knew I had to have them. They've added some new colors (glitters!) and kept some old favorites (Purple Potion anyone?) Yesterday was the first day I could get to Walgreens to get some of the polishes so the next couple of posts will be about these polishes because I'm actually going to wear them instead of just swatching.

First up is Celeb City, a silver that is opaque in one coat but I used two anyway. I so wanted to add some black and white designs to this but it's pretty shiny on its own. I need to get new bottles of black and white polishes, because my current bottles are running low and they've gotten sticky and a pain to apply. So you'll see this polish again, but next time with some art. I used Seche as my topcoat, but I've noticed that Xtreme Wear polishes dry really fast anyway.

I had to clip/file my nails because the same two nails keep peeling on each hand. I have no idea why, but I'm doing some research about nail strengtheners. OPI Nail Evny is at the top of the list right now. Hopefully, I wont have to keep clipping and filing them for the same reason. It always happens right when I get them a length that I want too!


  1. It looks great on you!I'm actually jealous cause most of the colours look much more gorgeous on dark skintones!Love it!

  2. Love your new picture, you look very pretty. Those Sally Hansen's are fantastic. My girlfriend found them for me at Walgreens. She bought me 18 of them! Well I had to pay her back for them. The glitters are amazing. Disco Ball I love and I bought my first backup. Your nails look so pretty. Try Biotin, I've been taking them about 5 months. I had peeling problems. Now I have a few nails that are peeling at the edges. Big improvement.

  3. The silver is very Beyonce.. I love it. And the bauble is HAUTE! Nice job.

  4. Looks great on you and I love your ring! That is a wonderful silver, makes me happy I picked it up and now I can't wait to try it :)

  5. Katie: Thank you, I love your comment! One of the reasons I started this blog was because I wanted to see nail polish on darker skintones

    Lucy: I wanted to buy the whole display, but my budget wouldnt allow it. LOL

    Bella: Thanks, I never thought of it as Beyonce inspired :-)

    Mary: Thanks! When I see a color on a blog only to discover I have it, it makes me soooo happy!

  6. OMGOSH! I love your ring!! I love the white and the diamonds together, very cute.

    Do you ever look at the jewelry they have at like antique stores? You can find some really great rings there.

  7. I’d passion to ascertain that too!
