It has been a while since I actually painted my nails. Long story short, I got a new job and they only allow nude or pink nail polish. Like, how boring can you get? To rebel, I decided not to paint them at all. That is until I started feeling like a little boy.
I decided to take advantage and just use up all the pink and nude nail polish that I own. The good thing is that Pink is actually my favorite color, so I have tons of Pink nail polish.
I recently purchased these two top coats and I have been loving them! I wanted to tell you guys a little about them.
FORMULA X FOR SEPHORA SHINE TOP COAT:
Where can I Purchase? Sephora, Sephora.com
This has become my go-to top coat. I heard about it from Makeupbytiffany on YouTube a while back and decided to pick it up while on a trip to Sephora. It’s supposed to give you high intensity shine and look almost Gel-like. I haven’t stopped using it since I purchased it. It brings all of my nail polishes to life and definitely gives them intense shine. Even as the days pass by the shine does not go away. As for chipping, I use my hand a lot throughout the days and weeks and I noticed it didn’t really start to chip until after a week or so. For those of you who like to switch up your nail polish very often, this is a good thing!
I definitely recommend this top coat if you love intense shine and gel like nails. It is also made without any parabens so that is an added plus!
SALLY HANSEN BIG MATTE TOP COAT
Where Can I Purchase? Any Drugstore, Ulta (In Store & Online)
I wasn’t a huge fan of matte nail polish when this trend came out. Recently, my co-worker let me try one of her new Essie Cashmere nail polishes, which dry matte. I decided to add a top coat to protect the polish and prevent it from chipping, so I purchased this Sally Hansen one and I fell in love! It’s not super matte, where your nails feel rough. There is still a slight shine to it but not as shiny as a regular top coat.
I recommend this top coat for sure if you’re like me and you want to try matte nail polishes without it feeling rough and dry.
