Beach Ready Mani With Sally Hansen #IHeartMyNailArt
Hi Ladies! I have a super fun manicure for you all today! I’m rocking some pretty awesome Sally Hansen textured nail polish! Have you tried Sally Hansen products? If not, they’re a must try! I started checking out the Sally Hansen Instagram and I was so inspired by the fun and bright colors that are in for summer! I knew I wanted to get ‘beachy’ with my manicure! So I went to my local Walgreens and I was floored by the giant selection, it was pretty breathtaking to see the fabulous new collections for summer! You can check out pictures from my shopping trip, right here in my Google+ album!
I find inspiration in so many things so after researching some of the swatches of the Sugar Coat polishes that Sally Hansen has out, which can all be found at Walgreens! I grabbed some items from around the house just to get me in the mood, and get a great idea for bright colors to incorporate into my nail art!
Sally Hansen Beach Manicure #Iheartmynailart
My sunglasses, some seashells a bracelet and if you can believe it, my backup shower curtain actually ended up being the best inspiration I could have hoped for to create my Sally Hansen Beach Ready Mani! The colors just pop, so I knew it would be the perfect start!

These displays at Walgreens, really had me ooohhing and ahhhing! It was so hard to choose just a few colors, I wanted everything! Those Sugar Coat polishes though, ahhh just amazing!

7. Beach Ready Mani {Sugar Coat Polish and Nail Art Pen from Sally Hansen}
Now that you’re bronzed, glowing and have the perfect beach outfit, let me show you how to create the perfect beach manicure with Sally Hansen textured polish from Walgreens!
  • Sally Hansen ‘Sugar Coat’ polish in “Spare-A-Mint”
  • Sally Hansen ‘Sugar Coat’ polish in “Candy Corn”
  • Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in “White”
  • A bobby pin (toothpick or dotting tools will work too)
  • A paper towel to clean the bobby pin
  • Something plastic that you can drip your polish on (I used a nail wheel but anything will do)
  • (Optional) Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser + Balm to get your cuticles mani ready
  • (Optional) Your favorite Sally Hansen Top Coat (A top coat takes a way from the textured look, so I like to rock this mani without)
How To Get A Beach Ready Manicure With Sally Hansen At Walgreens #IHeartMyNailArt
  • Get all of your polish and other necessities ready
  • Paint two thin layers of Sally Hansen ‘Spare-A-Mint’ over all of your nails! (I’m a brush snob, and their brushes are perfect) Let your nails dry completely.
  • Drop your Sally Hansen Sugar Coat polish in ‘Candy Corn’ onto your plastic surface and dip the rounded edge (straighten the pin) of your bobby pin into the polish.
  • Use the bobby pin and gently dot out the shape of a starfish (this does not need to be perfect, what starfish is?) onto your two chosen accent nails (or your whole hand if that is what you fancy) and paint on as many starfish as you’d like.
  • Wait about 90 seconds for the starfish to dry.
  • Use your Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in white to make the small dots on the starfish (this really helps the design pop) on both nails.
  • Let your manicure dry completely, this is where you can choose to either let the mani stay as is (which is what I did) or pick out your favorite Sally Hansen top coat and make it shinier, just remember that adding a top coat could lose the textured effect for you.

    This looks AMAZING!! I am constantly wowed by your nail art abilities… The best I ever get is an accent nail (or two when I’m feeling adventurous).

  2. Budget Splurge Beauty June 28, 2013 / 4:25 pm

    hmmm my nail art pen does not work like yours! It barely works at all :( i had high hopes because its such a good idea, but I have both white and black and neither works that well. The black works better than the white, the white barely works!
