Remember when I said I picked up two polishes at the supermarket?
Well they were both Sally Hansen Xtreme wear polishes, one was "Wild Life" that I showed you yesterday. Here is the other - #24 - "Black Out"
I wasn't expecting to love the pink quite as much as I did, I thought it would be a shame to take it off straight away, so for the other I brought in a guest model, My Boy, Jai!
This is two coats.
"Real Men don't do clean up!"
Now for his review on this polish:
"I'm thinking it could have been thicker, it seemed so wet, if that makes sense, like I'm used to wet meaning thin and patchy and crap... but this was okay. Anyhow it has hardly chipped yet but that won't take long. This was okay but I really want the black matte one. I also want to paint my truck in it."
So the verdict is: These are thin. I used 4 coats of the pink to achieve full coverage and Jai used two coats but its still a little patchy. Also, Jai wants 60,000,000 bottles of Manglaze "Matte is Murder".
Because I can - I'm going to let you know how these wear using Jai as my tester. They advertise as "Xtreme" wear - lets see how extreme they are when Jai is elbow deep in an engine. Because it's black - any chips will show up very clearly.
So what did you think of my guest this evening ladies? Should I let Jai occasionally join in my polishing madness, should I let him go back to computer games and engine bits, or should I be worried about the competition?
