Favorite Friday: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mint Sorbet

It’s Favorite Friday! That’s when I wear one of my all time favorite polishes that I haven’t used in a while. Today I have Mint Sorbet from Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear. I absolutely love mint polishes! I bought this one after I had seen many girls rocking mint nails on the NYC Subway in the spring of 2011. Not only is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear affordable at just $3 a bottle (or less at some stores), but the quality is rather good. You can read more about this brand HERE.

Mint Sorbet is not my all time favorite from this brand of polish, but the color is so pretty. This is definitely a two-coat polish, as the first coat comes out streaky and uneven. Luckily a second coat usually fixes everything and smoothes the color out. Today, I was pleasantly surprised with how beautiful my mani turned out. I don’t know if I’ve just gotten better at painting my nails, but Mint Sorbet is at its best ever! I even did something I never do — I did not apply a topcoat! The polish looks so glossy on its own that I didn’t bother. What do you think of Mint Sorbet?



I’m sure you can see why this is one of my favorites! Have you tried this color or brand before?

    I have been wanting this one for SO long, but the day I went to go grab it from the Kroger I kept eyeing it in, it was GONE! Like, POOF! πŸ™ And, after that, no sightings. Boo! Next time I see it, I won’t let it go!!!!

    I’m not one for greens, but I see many nail art designs stemming from this! it looks great on its own on your nails though!

    this is one of my all time favorites. I’m due for a new bottle, but lord do i love it. It was one of my first polish purchases ever!

    I do like that brand of polish, though I’ve never loved mint green myself. Then again, there are a lot of colors I wear on my nails now that I NEVER would have dreamed of wearing that I own and use now (present: OPI Did it on ’em, a puke-y limish green that I love now), so I may have to find this color πŸ™‚
