Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Wet Cement

I was going to post plain swatches of Sally Hansen Wet Cement (which is a light grey nail polish with creme finish), but then I thought that you probably have already seen it and not once, so I added a bit of colorful nail art to the ring finger.

I started off with applying Lumene Gloss and Care base, and waited for my nails to dry  – it took me just a couple of seconds. Then I applied 3 thin coats of SH Wet Cement on all my nails.

Sally Hansen’s brush and formula are usually good, but this time I had bold spots even after 2nd coat, hence the 3rd one. After the polish was dry to touch but still soft, I painted a yellow square on my accent nail using a nail art brush, and then I added an orange square using the standard L’Oreal nail polish brush. Painting lines and squares on the nail tips is always easier :) I didn’t use tape for the nail design because I simply didn’t want to wait for the base color to be completely dry.

For the nail design I needed:

  • Sally Hansen Wet Cement – light grey base color
  • Sephora Yellow Umbrella – yellow squares
  • L’Oreal Lush Tangerine 303 – orange squares
  • Orly Luxe for golden lines
  • Clear top coater to even the nail surface

About a week ago I tried to do this 4 square nail art on all my nails at once, in different color combination. I was hoping to get a bright and cheerful look, and I ended up with my nails looking clownish :)) Actually the result was quite expectable, but as they say you’ll never know for sure until you try ^^ To me this geometric nail design looks much better and appropriate when worn on 1-2 accent fingers, and that’s exactly what I did this time :)

Thank you for reading!

      I drew the lines with a detailed nail art brush, and also Orly Luxe is very easy to paint with, it’s not too thick/thin and its well pigmented :)
