China Glaze "Sand Dolla Make You Holla"

Hello, hello! 

The other day, before heading out of town, I quickly ran into a Sally's beauty supply store to get a cuticle trimmer. I walked in, found what I was looking for, then thought about taking a quick look at the clearance section. This Sally's store happened to have quite a few of the China Glaze "Sea Goddess" collection that I had been thinking about for quite a while. I grabbed three, walked up to the register to pay for my goodies, and the Sally's employee was nice enough to give me the buy 1 get 2 free deal on the China Glazes; even though they were on cleareance! I guess I walked in at the perfect time, because I didn't even know this deal was going on; nor did I know that promotions apply to clearance items as well. Three nail polishes for just about four dollars? ...I say yes! Lol... Anyways here's one of the ones I grabbed, and it's a super cute textured polish (all of the polishes in this collection are textured) called "Sand Dolla Make You Holla". Such a cute name! 

I really like polishes like this one, that have milky bases with multi-colored glitters. These combos remind me of frosting with sprinkles! Yummy :) 

Formula-wise, "Sand Dolla" was a bit tricky, but not so much that I wouldn't use it again. It was kind of thick, so I gave the bottle a good shake every once in a while. I applied three thin coats, and gave each coat a good two minutes or so to dry. Despite its thickness and having to apply three coats, I would say that it came out fairly leveled on my nails, and not like thick blobs (which tends to happen to me when I put on more than three coats of polish). I am looking forward to using the other two polishes I picked up from this collection, and I don't see the textured trend going out of style any time soon. They look great in the bottle, so I can't wait to see how they look on the nail! Have you picked up any polishes from the "Sea Goddess" collection? If so, what do you think? See ya next time, and have a great weekend! :)

    1. Hi, Kelly... It wasn't hard to remove at all, but I do always use pure acetone to remove all of my manis. It may be hard to remove with regular polish remover, I would think.
