Desperately Seeking Persistent Polish is a series where I wear a nail polish for seven days and take before and after pics to document the condition of my paws over the course of the week!
You know, there’s one thing that working for a top kitty supermodel over the past decade has prepared me for, and that’s the wrath of a toddler. If you don’t know, now you know. Demanding diva cats are just as, if not more than, temperamental than two-year-olds, and it’s a miracle this manicure even made it through seven days on my nails, because I had to open this Doc McStuffins mini doctors’ bag at least 50 times every day!
Allegedly, it’s a toy for children, but they had me fooled based on how hard it is to open…
(Side note: Connor uses it to store the free stickers she gets from the cashiers at Trader Joe’s. She uses them as Band-Aids for Tabs whenever she “treats him.” It’s cute but kinda gross at the same time because the backs of the stickers are covered in tabby hair when she takes them off.)
Pink and Harmony is pure awesomeness, BTW, and it lasted just as long as Falling Deep, the last Sally Hansen Color Therapy shade I wore. At the end of the seventh day, there were absolutely no major chips around the base of my nails. That’s something that’s happened, um…never with a different formula before?!
And considering how I spent most of my waking hours last week prying open that plastic Doc McStuffins toy with my nails, I’m shocked there were only a few tiny dents at the tips.
I also love the wide brush and the fairly quick-drying formula (takes about 5 minutes).
To keep the Persistent Polish series testing fair and equitable, I painted my paws with two coats of this week’s polish, Pink and Harmony (yes, sandwiched between the same Smith & Cult base and top coat I’ve been wearing). That said, because Pink and Harmony is packed with pigment, I bet you could get away with one coat.
So far, the Sally Hansen Color Therapy polishes have been the front-runners in the Persistent Polish series. They’ve been the sturdiest, longest-lasting polishes I’ve used for the series so far, and hello! — they’re also a great value at $7.99 a bottle. Plus, you can find them almost anywhere, like drugstores, , my purse, LOL!
You’ll have to bear with me if I test a few more shades because I love the line so much.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. My brain feels like I’ve just eaten the equivalent of three pounds of cotton candy, because I finished China Rich Girlfriend, the second book in the Crazy Rich Asians series, and I loved it in all its brain-liquefying glory. The closer I got to the end, the sillier and sillier it got, but that might have been part of the appeal.
Seriously, I felt like I was watching an even-cheesier-than-normal season of The Real Housewives, but I just couldn’t look away.
I have to get the third book now because I’m already so far in, you know?
