I'm wearing two polishes again, but they both have pretty long names! I'd been staring at Sally Hansen Commander in Chic Complete Salon Manicure for awhile -- it had been in my stash for at least three months -- but I just hadn't gotten around to trying it. So, I went for it! I decided to spice it up with Nails Inc. Special Effects Electric Lane Holographic Glitter Top Coat on two nails.

The Sally Hansen color is a gorgeous plum-taupe-chocolate brown combo that's creamy and super glossy. I did have some application problems and a lot of streakiness, which I smoothed out with three coats -- two, then a top coat, then a third! I also am not a huge fan of the brush, which is big, flat and pretty hard to use on smaller nails. With all that being said, I do like the color, though you can see the application problems especially on one of my ring fingers. I also applied CND Stickey Base Coat and Seche Vite top coat, even though Complete Salon Manicure technically has a base coat and top coat baked into the formula -- I just don't trust a manicure without my standbys.

I'm in love with the Nails Inc. top coat, though I would say it's more like a polish than a top coat -- it completely covers the polish beneath it in just one coat! But I love the multiple colors of glitter and the evenness with which it applies.

What's on your nails this week? Let me know in the comments!
