I needed to stock up on spring/summer nail polish colors and I have a few other polishes from the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line that I absolutely love. I decided to get this gorgeous color (Lacey Lilac). I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it out for the first time. After putting on two coats and a clear top coat, my nails looked amazing. This is the perfect pastel purple for spring/summer. It dries quickly and I've had it on for almost a week now and it hasn't chipped at all! (That is a miracle in itself because with 2 kids and me doing dishes, cleaning, playing outside with the kids, etc. it's inevitable that my nail polish will start to chip. This polish hasn't though, and I'm very surprised.) I have a ton of nail polish, and this is definitely my new favorite. I can't wait to buy more colors from this line. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a gorgeous, pigmented, pastel color and is looking for a fast dry nail polish. This is a great product for someone that works a lot or doesn't have much free time. You can just paint your nails, wait a few minutes, and you're good to go. I am 110% satisfied with this polish and would recommend it to anyone that wants a pastel colored, beautiful, long lasting nail polish.
Perfect color for spring and summer! I have tried a few of the Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear line and so far i'm very impressed. They are around $2 to $3 depending where you get it and the formula is great for a drugstore polish. Lacey Lilac is the prettiest pale lilac purple and I get compliments on it all the time. It looks great on my fair skin but I imagine anyone can wear it. Surprisingly this isn't that streaky for being a pastel polish and it only needs two coats to be opaque. The lasting time is pretty good and the polish holds up pretty well. I love this color and I know I'll be getting a lot of use out of it.
I absolutely love this colour! It is the perfect purple spring colour. Seriously every time i wear this i get multiple comments on my nails. To reach an opaque look it only took about 2-3 coats. With top coat i found it lasted about 4-5 days. I would definitely buy it again!
I LOVE this nail polish! I actually decided to get this one because I remembered how much I loved Sally Hansen's Mint Sorbet last year. I usually don't go for purples but I saw that every line in the drugstore had a shade similar to this one so I decided to give it a try. It's a beautiful cream finish and looks amazing in just one thick coat (or two thin coats). It's been four days since I first applied it and there are no chips!! I am quite fair and have slightly yellow undertones. The polish makes my hands look a little more tan too which is perfect for this time of year :)
I love this color. Application is okay as well. Even seems to last a little bit longer than some of the other polishes I own. I wear this one a lot.
I love it! The colour is so feminine and pretty. It has pink undertones and I think it suits my skin tone well (I have yellow undertone).
Maybe I'm just not used to the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear line of polishes but I found this to be extremely hard to apply. The formula was very runny and the design of the applicator just made it worse. That aside, I really wanted to like this color, but it turns out this particular shade of light purple out of the bottle was not my cup of tea. It looked wrong and a little garish against my tan skin and yellow undertone. I've seen a similar shade worn by a friend of mine who has very fair skin and it looked gorgeous, so this may just be a case of me choosing the wrong color for myself. For now, I've been wearing it on my toes and it looks young and cute.
This is a wonderfull nail polish!
Pros: very nice brush, lovely color , and appiles even.
Cons: smell is strong, its very thick, take a while to dry.
I love this nail polish just got it at walmart for a little more then 2.00. yes i would buy again.
I love this! It applies so well, and it lasts quite long. I use my hands a lot (to wash dishes, for example), and it started to chip from the 4th day. The color is beautiful.
I was very disappointed with this polish, but not because I didn't love it. I like it, it's just that it was NOT what I was expecting. I was looking for a very light, pastel, white-with-a-touch-of-purple color. And in the bottle it looked only slightly darker than that.
Oh, how different it actually was. I do like the color, but I was so frustrated by its shade. It's quite an unflattering shade of purple, being so /medium/ toned. I have yellow undertones, but I am tan. This color gave me almost mannequin-hands, if you could believe that. My other friends, with very similar skin colors/tones, tried this out, and said the same.
This polish has not-so-subtle pink undertones. I was debating whether I should get this polish, or Essie's Lilacism. As the Essie polish is almost quadruple the price, I decided on this one. And for only $1.50, I didn't really have anything to lose. I swatched Lilacism a few days ago, though, and I'm kicking myself for not getting that one instead. It's almost exactly what I wanted, and much more of a purple than a pink-ish purple.
As for the formulation and brush, it half sucked. My brush was terrible, all bent up and battered. I should have checked it before I bought it. Even so, it didn't work terribly. I managed it just fine. The formula is super thick, and I got full opacity in one coat. This Xtreme wear line lives to its name, also, because this lasted for weeks.
Overall, it's a pretty color, but it's just so medium-toned, it looks weird on my skin.
