Hey guys, I hope you’ve had a nice weekend. I got the Elegantly Wasted polish by Trust Fund Beauty in my Ipsy bag and wanted to do a little review for it because I’ve been wearing it a bit recently. This product is 17ml (essie is 13.5) and cost $15 on their website. I was happy that they included this in Ipsy because I wouldn’t usually spend $15 on a nail polish.
So earlier this week my mom got rid of a bunch of her nail polish. She can never get it to work for her so she’s moved on to gel. That’s awesome for me though because now I have a bunch of new polish to try and share with you guys. I got 8 different clear coat type things. I won’t put pictures up of all of them but I will tell you what they all are. I got 3 Sally Hansen ones: Double Duty which is a strengthening base and top coat that I tried today so I’ll let you know whether I like it, Dry-Kwik which just dries your nails quickly and I also tried today (it dried the nails really fast, like moments after I put it on), and then New Lengths which is a strengthener to help grow longer nails (this one looks old school so I’ll have to see how long my mom has had it). I also got Primetime from ORLY (a nail primer that I used today), a Barielle instant liquid nail hardener (never heard of this brand and it looks a little old school again so we’ll see), Nutra Nail Bullet-Proof Strength, Cutex Nail Developer (this is a 10 day system so sometime when I don’t have polish on I’ll try it), and OPI Start to Finish base and top coat (I also used this today. I used this on one hand and the Sally Hansen one on the other so I’ll see which one I like better).
So these have gotten mixed reviews from what I can see. They’re supposed to look and last like a gel polish without having to use a light. It’s a fantastic idea and, for me, it works quite well. I only have 3 colors (Combustealble, Truffle Shuffle, and Wine Stock) and the top coat but I’ll definitely be looking into buying some more. These cost $9.99 on Ulta’s website but I got them for $7.99 at Walmart. You can also sometimes get a 2 pack with the top coat and a color to try out for a little cheaper than buying them separate.
