Sally Hansen’s Pink Boa

Two coats for full coverage, long wear, just the slightest blue undertone to the hot pink, and under $5 a bottle. What's not to love? I haven't had the best luck finding another bottle at the three stores near me, though - so if you do want it and you do see it, don't hesitate!! This color is NOT listed as “discontinued”, but it's such a gorgeous pink that I'm sure it got snapped up pretty quickly.

I do like how all of the Xtreme Wear polishes that I've used to date have brushes similar to the Salon Formula brushes: they're flat rather than round, and the tip of the brush is just slightly shaped so that it's easier to apply polish right up to the cuticle line without actually slopping lacquer all over my cuticles. The brush tip isn't as shaped as the Salon Formula brushes, and it's not nearly as wide…but all the same, it does a good job at getting the polish where I want the polish to go, and keeping it off of my cuticles.
