I have never tried Sally Hansen nail polish before, but I have heard of amazing things about the brand. A family friend have recently visited and gift me a couple of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail colors to try, lucky me. ^^ ~ I have just done a little research on the brand and the Xtreme Wear range, Coral Reef has a rating of 4.2 out of 5, must be a really amazing polish?! Let's see what I think of it...

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color - Coral Reef
♥ coral in days and hot pink at night, color looks different depending on lighting
♥ bright and intensive color
♥ easy to apply, two coats for an opaque coverage
♥ the formula is quite thick but applies smoothly
♥ took 2 hours to fully dry two coats 
♥ nail polish chipped within 12 hours :( then it starts peeling off by itself within 24 hours

I have seen so many great reviews of people raving about the longevity of these, many gave positive reviews of how these Xtreme Wear nail colors last up to three days through all washing dishes and doing house works. I applied this one night, waited 3 hours watching TV, doing nothing that has to use my hands, then took a shower, made sure Coral Reef is fully set then went to sleep. Woke up the next morning, even check if my nail polishes are damage, which wasn't and got up, got ready and went to work. During the first three hours at work, it started to chip here and there (I work an office job which you can imagine it's not crazy like I have to use my hands a lot... Well I use my fingers to type on the keyboard and that's all I ever do). Then by the afternoon, Coral Reef starts to peel off by itself, I just don't understand?!

I will be trying out and reviewing the few other shades that was also gifted to me, hopefully they last longer.

  1. It started peeling? That's strange! I never had that happen to me with that formula! I have several shades, two blues and a silver and a cherry, I love the Xtreme wear line!

    1. Yeah I don't know why it just starts peeling :( I thought maybe it could be fake but I have never seen fake Sally Hansen, they could be easily purchase from our local cosmetics stores.

  2. Too bad to hear this doesn't work well! I always think it really depends on base and top coasts as well though!! The color is gorgeous!!!

    1. Yeah:( don't think it's suppose to be like this thou, maybe like above comment, it's the base / top coats problem; I used an inexpensive Korean brand nail polish
