Pin my Stash: Sally Hansen Natural Sienna

Good morning, dear readers!  I have finally jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon as a way to catalogue my polish collection.  I had been putting it off because I really did not want to know just how many bottles of polish I had- I figured I could stay in denial as long as I didn't know the tally or need to get another melmer.  I was finally convinced when someone suggested using Pinterest, and I loved the idea of seeing swatches of my colours.  This is especially useful for when I want to change my manicure, but I have no idea what I want to do.  I had a lot of fun pinning my collection until I discovered that I just could not FIND swatches online of some of my colours.  I imagine that has been a source of frustration and annoyance for several people, and I thought I would start including blog posts about these colours.

My first "pin my stash" post is of Sally Hansen nailgrowth Miracle in Natural Sienna.  I picked my bottle up maybe 9 months ago from my Walgreens for less than $5 (it was on sale at the time, although I don't believe it is much more than that now).  I had the brilliant idea of painting these swatches when I was away from home, and sadly, my nail polish thinner.  The formula on this one was a little thick, and application wasn't quite as smooth as I would have liked.  That being said, I know I used it right after I bought at and the application was much smoother then.  I used two coats in these photos.

I'm not exactly sure what is so miraculous about this polish, and I find it very hard to believe that it encourages nail growth.  I suppose if I really wanted to test out that claim, I would keep one nail painted with it all the time and other nails either naked or with other polishes.  I think some people think I am odd enough as it is, so I'm going to have to pass on that little experiment.  :)  I just bought this because I didn't have anything like it in my collection.

I hope you are all enjoying your Monday!  <3
