NEW Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Summer 2013 Polishes: Peach Beach, Pinch of Punch, Berry Juicy, Kiwi Bikini & Perfect Pear-ing
Price: $2.49 * Buy At: Target * Size: 0.4 fl oz / 11.8 mL
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear has been my favorite nail polish brand for a really long time! When I saw that they had a new line at Target, I got so excited that the people around me probably thought I was a freak. Anyway, Sally Hansen has come out with a new line of 10 colors for Summer 2013 and I picked up 5.
The ones I didn't pick up were Lemon Zest (a shimmery mustard yellow), Blueberry Blast (a shimmery dark blue), Razz-berry (a mid tone pink creme), Ice Pop (a silver glitter top coat) & Pink-Grape Fruit (a purple and pink glitter top coat).
Peach Beach is a medium peachy coral pink creme. I found that Peach Beach was the most streaky on me out of the 5 I bought. It was also a little more sheer and required 3 coats on some nails, unlike the others. If you are wondering about how it compares to the permanent shade Coral Reef, Coral Reef is darker than Peach Beach and a little more red.
Pinch of Punch
Pinch of Punch is a pink-leaning purple creme. This kind of purple (and pastel purples) are the only kinds I will wear, so I'm glad Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear now has one! Pinch of Punch was pretty opaque and only needed 2 coats. I found that Pinch of Punch was really glossy looking, the most glossy out of the 5 for some reason (I didn't use a top coat).
Berry Juicy is a clean, bright pastel pink creme. This one is my favorite from the collection & I couldn't stop looking at my nails when it was on! Unlike a lot of pale pink polishes, this one was very opaque and bright and only required 2 coats to even the color out.
Kiwi Bikini is a darker green teal creme. The formula of Kiwi Bikini was the thinnest to me, but it was still pretty opaque with 2 coats.
Perfect Pear-ing is a light green creme that isn't mint and isn't lime. This polish was quite sheer when applied in thin coats, but was really opaque (and looked brighter) when applied with thick coats. The closest color I have to Perfect Pear-ing is Essie's First Timer, which is more blue.
Berry Juicy & Perfect Pear-ing were my favorites from the 5 that I picked up, but these 5 are my favorite of the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Summer 2013 line. All of these polishes lasted a few days before chipping without a top coat.
