I have been on the search for a paled out sage green nailpolish. Essie has one called Absolutely Shore which I have not been able to find in a store, and being the instant gratification person that I am, I haven’t ordered online yet either. So when I wandered into Walgreens recently in Florida and saw the lovely Sea in a Sally Hansen display, I had to have it. It is part of their Smooth & Perfect Color + Care line, which are frankly lovely and enticingly pastel, and perfect for this season pale toned trends.

I used 3 coats, and frankly I love that it is semi sheer. When light colours are too opaque I find they look chalky and thick on my nails. It applies well once you get used to the wide and slightly unwieldy brush. Although it does cover the nail in one swoop once I got the hang of it. Wear was quite good with tip wear after 3 days but I was swimming every day and applying sunscreen, so I can forgive that. This one looks airy and breezy- the name Sea suits it perfectly. Pale sea foam green is my new fave neutral. Sally Hansen Sea will get tons of wear this spring/summer.
