Recent NOTD: Sally Hansen Vital Violet

Sally Hansen lover that I am, I have fairly few from the Maximum Growth line. Vital Violet is a mauve-y frost. It went on smoothly and the brushstrokes settled nicely, but it stayed dentable for way longer than I'd like, even with my usual fast dry top coat. I do like the color, though, not quite neutral but not too flashy for work meetings.

I have no recollection of when or where I got this, which I think may be a bad sign. Of what, I'm not sure. Too many bouts of hauling frenzy? My brain running out of room to store information?


  1. that is a great color for work. it gives a hint of flair but not too over the top!

  2. That's a lovely colour. It's sensible, but still very pretty.
    The hauling frenzy amnesia made me giggle, so familiar! :)

  3. I like the color a lot! :)

    and by the way I tagged you in my recent post on my blog [award]. :)

  4. Haha! I rememeber where I got allof my polishes so far. I don't have as many as you though. The day I can't remember will be a sad day. LOL! :)

  5. I've this! :) but it's still untried! maybe next week

  6. are you nails growing longer with the max. growing formula? I guess it's hard to tell since we remove our polishes so often.

    I am using nubar nu nail strengthener as a base coat and the instructions were to apply one layer of it everyday for 7 days... um..that's having naked nails for a way. i'm cant not wear nail polish. I'm assuming this sally hansen instructions was to keep this polish on for at least a week.

    btw karen did you change the layout to you blog? on your front page, instead of showing a post + picture... there's a list of links to all your posts and then we have to click on the link to get to the post with pictures

  7. Thanks, everyone!

    shortwidenails, you're right; I didn't wear this long enough to notice a difference. I have done the "new coat every day" treatments from time to time to give my nails a break from acetone but unfortunately what seems to work best is leaving them alone and not typing all day--they did great when I was on vacation.

    As far as the layout, I replied on your blog, but in case anyone else is having the same problem, please let me know what browser & URL/path you're using, as I'm not seeing this and haven't made changes so the more info. I can get the better as far as putting it right.


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) I'm moderating most comments now due to the spate of spammers who claim to be looking for sexy times.
