I usually stick to the lower end brands (L.A. Girl is fab), but every once in a while I splurge on one if I fall in love with the color. I went into Sally's Beauty the other day and I found some colors that were on sale for 1.99! I got Wild Mink , a creme finish, from the Core Collection and Towel Boy Toy, a shimmer finish, from this summers Poolside Collection.
I'm a sucker for turquoise colors and Towel Boy Toy didn't disappoint. It did need a top coat to get the shiny finish, though. Wild Mink is a very feminine coral-ish pink. Both polishes went on smoothly. I couldn't have expected more from a salon quality brand. For 1.99, it was completely worth it.
