NOTD: Sally Hansen Perfect Pear-ing

Two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Hard As Nails in Perfect Pear-ing from the Summer 2013 Beach Brights Limited Edition Collection. Bright, Neon-Leaning Honeydew Melon Green.

You all know about my bordering on obsession love for mint green polishes; so, of course I couldn't resist picking this one up when I saw it sitting by its lonesome on the store shelf. Though mint-esque; Perfect Pear-ing is actually a beautifully bright honeydew melon green that leans towards the neon spectrum of polishes {always a must for summer}.

The formula was a little strange for me, in that the first coat was thin and runny; while the second coat was thick and gloppy {weird, I know}. I blame myself for this oddity, however, because the polish did sit in a hot car for a few hours and probably could have benefitted from being refrigerated for awhile before use. Regardless, I found that it was, overall, easy to work with. I only wish that they would make this shade a part of the Sally Hansen permanent collection, as it is truly too pretty to be relegated to the Limited Edition / hard-to-find shelf.

There is just something MUST HAVE about this retro color. Lately, I've been wearing "eggplant" with my wedding ring finger in lavender.

Love this color. I always get a lot of of wear out of 'extreme wear'. Usually, my go to color is Sally's dark gray. But I haven't worn it all summer. I've been trying neon colors. But I just can't take the Hot Pink, though.

Beautiful color. I do like Sally's stuff for the most part.

Interesting about how the polish went on. Sometimes, you just never know. But I do have better luck with creamy polish. Not having to use as much.

Great review. So pretty!

I actually haven't tried a Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish in a while, so I can't remember exactly how it was on my nails. However, I'm pretty sure I remember the formula being weird for me as well. I do have to say, I love this color though. It's so pretty! A perfect bright for summertime!

I wouldn't normally think of going for green, but the shade looks great for summer!

I love the shade! I should try this brand again, the last two times I used this brand it was years ago and it was streaky.
