Finger Painting: Boy Oh Boy

In yesterday's blog post, I showed off my goodies given to me by Nicole V. that she included with my Almay giveaway prize.

Amongst my gifts, were two nail polishes which I had never tried before until she gave them to me.

Jordana Nail Polish 978 Boy Oh Boy
Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat 06 Antiqued Gold

One coat of Boy Oh Boy with flash.
Still a bit streaky.

Two coats of Boy Oh Boy with flash.
Completely opaque.

One coat of Antiqued Gold.
I wore this look on Saturday for the first time for a family reunion on the beach. I thought the colors were perfect beach themed colors. There is a pretty sea blue and a beautiful sandy gold.

The Jordana nail polish is very glossy which I love. The label on the bottle recommends between 2-3 coats. Two was enough for me.

The Sally Hansen nail polish was so fun to use. I don't have any crackle nail polishes. I tried to take a picture of what it looked like when I applied it but it began to crack very fast. What I did notice with this crackle formula (it might be the same with all crackle formulas) is that you cannot apply crackle polish to your nail that already has crackle polish. It won't crackle if you layer it on. I find that a single, thin application works best. Correct me if I am wrong. This is my first experience with any crackle nail polish.

All in all, I really like these two nail polishes. When I saw that Nicole had included nail polish in my package, I was really excited because I have been wanting to grow my nail polish collection. This is a good start. Thanks, Nicole.

  1. I agree with D.Sadie love the combo. I think I may check those Sally nail thingy next time Im @ Target.Thankyou

  2. @D.Sadie, thank you! I bet that gold crackle would look great on black. It would really stand out :)

    @Hunter87, for the first time using the Sally crackle, I really liked it. I wonder what other colors are available. I wouldn't mind trying out some others. I'm happy that this post helped you out. Let me know what you decide to get!

  3. That Jordana polish is stunning! :)

  4. @Ev, yeah! I thought it was very beachy :)

    @Vintage Makeup, it's a very good nail polish. The application was a dream. The color is vibrant. The finish is really glossy. Good stuff :)

  5. I love the color combo. I actually searched for this at target yesterday they were sold out of the gold!

  6. @Amber, oh bummer. I saw on the Sally website that there are other colors like pink, blue, purple...I got excited. LOL. I'd like to try the red one! But I still think the gold will be one of the best ones. It's very pretty.

  7. Love the way that that soft champagne like gold looks over the blue!

    1. It really is the pretties gold! It's a delicate gold ;)
