Sally Hansen Hard As Nails - Lilac

APPLICATION: Not fun, the polish was more runny than I'm used to, so I had to be careful applying it.
COATS: 3
TOPCOAT?: Only after nail art added.
SOURCE: Local Target store before it stopped carrying them
COMMENTS: When AllThingsNails mentioned in this post about Orly - Pure Porcelain that this may be a dupe for that gorgeous color, I knew I had to try it because her nails looked so lovely! I have to say, after the second coat, I was quite annoyed and vowing to get rid of this polish. However, I ended up putting on a third coat, and after a little more cleanup than usual, and I'm glad I did. It's gorgeous! Of course you know it had to get covered it in dots, right? I grabbed the bottle of Misa - Heartbreak that was still nearby to complete the look.

    @Miss Blue - yes, I do use a dotting tool. I used one from a set I picked up about a year ago shown in this post.
