Sally Hansen’s Color Therapy nail polish contains a patented micro-delivery system that delivers an argan oil-enriched formula, resulting in intensive nourishment and instant moisture for healthier-looking nails. The Color Therapy nail polish needs no base coat so the oil complex can directly contact the bare nail. 9 out of 10 women experienced a noticeable improvement in their natural nails after wearing the Color Therapy nail polish. Vibrant tones, available in three magnificent palettes, glide on for a radiant, shiny finish with up to 10 days of fade-proof, chip-resistant wear. The Color Therapy nail polish provides the ultimate color that cares while you wear, with everything needed to restore nails without sacrificing luminous color.  

Complete your manicure with the Color Therapy top coat and nail & cuticle oil, both formulated with the same argan oil contained in the nail polish. The top coat provides an ultra-glossy finish for extended wear, and the nail & cuticle oil, the ultimate in nail therapy, instantly makes nails and cuticles look healthier, restored, and rejuvenated.  

The Ingredient Story Color Therapy blends a complex of natural argan, acai, and evening primrose oil to condition weak, dry nails. Argan oil contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids, as well as vitamin E, an antioxidant vital for healthy skin and nails. Acai berry oil is rich in omega-3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids that are valued for nutrition and conditioning in skin and hair care. Evening primrose oil features essential fatty acids that are known to help reinforce hair strength.

2 coats

ORLY Breathable contains Advanced Oxygen Technology and key ingredients including Argan Oil, Pro-Vitamin B5, and Vitamin C to help improve hydration, stimulate nail growth and heal damaged nails.

At the end of the year I had $5 in Kohl's Cash I needed to use and decided to treat myself to some nail polish. The Orly Breathable Treatment + Color line was new to me, but looked intriguing, so I grabbed this bright red to give it a shot.

Note that although Orly claims you don't need to use a base or top coat, I did my normal routine and used both. I'm really impressed by the pigmentation and how easily it flowed.

OPI Rich & Braziliant

OPI Rich & Braziliant
2 coats
from the OPI Breakfast at Tiffany's Collection for Holiday 2016

I LOVE this shade! This is actually my 2nd mani with this one- I have has a nasty cold for a bit and didn't get a pic when I first used it. After that my nails were unpainted for over a week because I was blowing my nose too often to paint my nails. It is super rare for my nails to be unpainted!

Rich & Braziliant is an eggplant with a shimmer that is GORGEOUS. You can see some red and blue shimmers in there if you enlarge the pic.

OPI Infinite Shine in Can't Tame a Wild Thing

OPI Infinite Shine in Can't Tame a Wild Thing
used entire IS system: primer, 2 coats of color, gloss topcoat
from the OPI Breakfast At Tiffany's Collection for Holiday 2016

I have been re-testing out the Infinite System system with a new shade from the Breakfast At Tiffany's collection, and while I love love love this poppy red, I still don't love love love the system. The topcoat just isn't very thick, so you don't get the gel-like finish I prefer. Now, I do feel like I get pretty good wear from this system, but not enough to justify the higher base/top price.
