Manicure Monday: Nuance Salma Hayek

I have a new brand of nail polish to share with you!  Trying out new kinds of nail polish is so exciting, because I love to see how they compare to my favorites!  Today I have five colors to show you from Salma Hayek's cosmetics line, "Nuance".  Here they are:

Orange Poppy
This is the prettiest cherry red color, with a hint of orange.  This is my favorite in the collection, which is funny because I don't usually like reds.

This color is prettier than it looks in the picture and it's not quite as dark in person.  It's a nice lilac creme.

New Primrose
This was the only color that really needed 2 coats for full coverage, possibly 3 coats.  It's ok, but there isn't anything really special about this soft pink color.

Tiger Lily
This one is a magenta color that reminds me of a color I would wear when I was a kid.  That isn't necessarily a bad thing, because I still like the shimmery purplish-pink color!

Red Sienna
This is a really great coral color.  In my opinion, it's the perfect summer shade!

So, the verdict is...I really like it! I used only ONE coat for these, with the exception of the light pink polish.  I would probably add a second coat if I were keeping it on my nails for the week, but you could definitely get away with only one coat. I also like how it applies really evenly and dries to a really shiny finish!

Sorry the photos aren't the best...that's what happens when you wait until the daylight is almost gone to photograph your nail polish.  Oh well, I will try to be more on top of things next time!  Which color is your favorite? 

Nuance retails for $5.99 and is only available at CVS and CVS.com.

  1. I've been looking for the perfect shade of coral for the summer and that Red Sienna is pretty close. That being said, I really like the New Primrose. Sometimes I buy pale pinks that look great in the bottle but look too washed out and white on my nails. This color looks perfect!

  2. Great shades of nail polish.

  3. Oh, they're great. Especially the red ones! My little sister and I got three new nail polishes today (well, one was just a nail protector) which was exciting ;)
