Sally Hansen Rapid Red

Sorry I've been absent for the past several days - one of my kidney stones decided it was time to make a move, and I haven't felt like doing much of anything except lay in bed and take as much Tylenol and Aleve as possible. It's still fairly painful, but I'm feeling a bit better today, so hopefully that trend continues.

I very sloppily painted my nails with Sally Hansen Rapid Red Thursday night, because Commander in Chic was chipped and I felt like I had to do something even if I did feel like crap. I used it mainly because it dries quickly and I didn't want to sit up waiting for my polish to dry, but I really do like the color - it's one of the few bottles of polish that I've made a noticeable dent in, and halfway through the bottle, the formula is still as good as it was the day I got it. This is two coats.

Of course, by the time I got around to take pictures, my pointer finger had chipped - my actual fingernail chipped, though, not the polish - and it was dark outside...oh well.  At any rate, this is a great cherry red, and it's been my go-to color for debate tournaments (or when I just want a good red) for several years. 


  1. Well you know I'm a lover of red polishes,and I love this cherry red polish. I hope you continue to recover,and feel better. My husband has dealt with kidney stones twice before. It was terrible for him,as I'm sure for you too. Get plenty of rest,and don't over do it.

  2. Velvet- Thank you! I am definitely resting. :)

  3. Ouch--hope you're feeling better soon!

  4. KarenD- Thank you! Me too. :)
