Sally Hansen Fast and Fuchsia

Fast and Fuchsia

When I was in college, one of my favorite bi-monthly activities was going to get my nails and toes done with Jonathan and Lo at Elegant Nail Spa Waco! I got my first gel manicure ever with Lo who introduced me to the wonders of gel and dip polish and constantly bullied me into having well-kept, colorful nails so she wouldn’t have to look at my horrid natural nails. Jonathan only joined us for the pedicure part, but I still always associate mani/pedis with the two of them. I don’t get mani/pedis anymore aside from the odd times when I’ll go with my mom and/or sister (this was my last salon manicure and it’s my favorite one ever for my sister’s wedding in November!) and since it’s expensive to have them professionally done, I’m making DIY attempts of my own. I hate painting my nails because I tend to smudge them even though they’ve been drying for hours and they chip fairly quickly. I’ve loved Olive & June polishes for the past couple of years and while they last fairly long and have a vast array of shades to choose from (I especially love that they’re now available in Target!!), my new favorite formula is the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line, which I used in previous at-home manicures here and here. I chose the shade ‘Fast and Fuchsia’ for my February manicure as I feel free to wear all the color I want post-Winter blues (as if I stopped wearing color in December-January). As with all of Sally Hansen’s polishes, ‘Fast and Fuchsia’ is extremely opaque in only one coat—although I went for two coats just to be safe—and is extremely glossy without a topcoat. The shade matches every outfit I style and looks especially cute against stacks and stacks of bracelets and rings! A win for both Sally and me!
