Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in Sprint Mint
$4.99 at Walgreens To Buy
My two favorite colors are pictured above. Sprint Mint is a jade green and Speedy Sunburst is a bright, bold reddish-pink. What I love most is that each color is deep and glossy. And it only takes one stroke for complete coverage and rich, vivid color. You can get a professional look in less than 5 minutes for around $5.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Set The Stage
So new! It's not even available online
but I bought mine at The Wal(greens)
Glitter polish may make you think of being in junior high but it is all the rage in the beauty world right now. Women of all ages are getting hooked on glitter after the success of Deborah Lippman's Glitter Nail Polish. Now drugstore brands are getting in on the action creating glitter copycats such as Set The Stage seen above. This color has been so popular The Wals can't even keep it on the shelf. I can see why. It looks great layered over color or on its own for a subtle sparkle.
Wet N Wild Party of Five Glitter Nail Polish
Not available online
but I bought mine at The Wal(greens) for $2
and it came with a top coat
Party of Five Glitters is totally the cheapskate version of the couture Lippman Happy Birthday. But did you see the price tag? Two dollars? To be honest, I don't really care about the quality when I am saving $16 on glitter nail polish, that let's be real, will not be part of my daily nail wear. And if you can reference one of my favorite tv shows in your title, I will probably buy you just on that alone. Well done WnW.
For the record, the trick to glitter nail polish application is to place the glitter on the nail with the brush, not sweep.

How fab is it you can get 4 bottles of nail polish for less than what it costs to get a pedicure? Now the trick is to figure out how to paint my right hand to be a total saver. Or just pick-up a 99-cent bottle of nail polish remover while at The Wal to clean-up my mistakes.
CC Tip: Buy one quick-drying nail polish like this Sally Hansen Beige Blast for when you don't have time for a full-blown manicure and need to have neat nails.
