Sula Paint and Peel Nail polish..Ehhhh

I purchased Sula Paint and Peel polish from Ulta and it sells for about $9. I tried the color Dove. This has got to be one of the least favorite polishes I have ever tried. It definitely is not one that fits within my lifestyle. It's a water based polish and the whole concept here is to be able to take the polish off without having to use a polish remover.
There were 3 easy steps printed on the outer package. I like trying new polishes so I said great. Now when I got home and unpacked the polish this is where I saw the "other" set of directions.
  • Wear it for a day or two...Say what!
  • Apply new layers of top coat daily....ummm really???
  • Keep it short, short nails=less chips...No dice here Sula.
  • and here is the kicker..Avoid hot water for 4 hours following application and protect nails until they are completely dry following a bath or shower. I don't have 4 hours to worry about my nail polish coming off. The outer package just says wait 10 minutes to dry. What's up?
Well I do a lot with my hands so it seems as though this concept polish is not for me :( . This is the first water based polish I have tried so I don't know if they all behave this way. I'm just upset that I paid $9 for something that I could not keep looking good on my nails for more than 24 hours. Yes it started smudging and peeling later in the day.


  1. That sucks! I like trying new stuff too, but I won't be trying that stuff for sure!

  2. Yes it sure does! Save your money. They knew if they put those instructions outside the package no one would buy it.
