Nails of the Day: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Pacific Blue!

Two Coats of Sally Hansen Pacific Blue
Sally Hansen Pacific Blue is a bright, royal-blue cream polish with a shiny finish. It’s almost a cross between royal blue and periwinkle blue. There are so many different shades of blue, and this particular shade is at the top of my list. I think it’s a great summer shade, especially with the current “pop of neon” trend. This shade goes particularly well with neon yellow. 
When I think of neon yellow, I think of this Cambridge bag I’ve been lusting over for the past few months. But I can’t help but think that I’ll probably never wear again after the summer. What do you think?

Here’s a comparison to what I’d call true blue. Note the difference?

Application with this polish is pretty good. It applies evenly and almost completely opaque with one coat. If you’re an impatient gal, you could definitely get away with one coat of this polish. I opted for two for full opacity and a shiny top coat. I did notice with the second coat the polish seemed slightly thick. I may add a couple drops of thinner to the bottle.
Absolutely love this shade and I’m sure I’ll be wearing it all summer long.
What’s on your nails?

  1. I have this polish as well and just love it! The color is so vibrant and I have yet to find an exact dupe.

    Thanks for posting the photo of the neon Cambridge satchel. What a great color combo! I've seen some of those friendship and hardware bracelets that are so popular now, in neon colors and this just gave me the idea to pair them together. Thx for the post!


  2. Hey Natalie! I know this has nothing to do with the post but which would you recommend: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk or Chanel Vitalumiere. Also, which one has the best staying power. Thank you so much!


  3. My nails are covered in NYC In a Minute quick dry — Sidewalkers. Perfect gray color. Reckon has a pretty blue called Coastal Surf. =)



  4. Really!? I'd look at it every time I go to the store and usually pass it up because I have so many polishes. Really happy I finally got it.

    I purchase thinner from Sally's Beauty Supply for a couple of dollars. It comes in handy with my Seche Vite Top Coat that tends to thicken up.


  5. Hi Alexis!

    Really tough choice because I love both foundations so much, but ultimately, I'd choose Armani Luminous Silk over Vitalumiere. I find that Armani stays in tact better throughout the day and lasts longer on my skin overall.

    Good luck!


  6. Funny, I have the very same feeling about the color neon yellow – I absolutely identify it with this exact bag, which I think looks fabulous. On the other hand, I was thinking the same thing – would I still wear neon yellow after this summer season…?
