Petites Hazel

   With all the salon and high end polish brands it's easy to overlook some of the smaller, lower cost polishes available.  This is a shame though because sometimes these smaller brands have some amazing colors.  Today I'm going to show you a coppery plum duochrome from Petites.  Petites can be found at Walmart and Rite Aid and is usually under $2.

   I do apologize for the quality of these pictures.  They were all taken from my cell phone in various indoor lighting.  But I think you can still get the idea of how beautiful the polish is.  Also please ignore the state of my cuticles in some of the close up photos.  
   I used one coat of China Glaze Strong Adhesion base coat, 2 coats of Hazel, and 1 coat of Barielle Manicure Extender on top.  Application was very smooth and pigmentation was nice.  I almost could have gotten away with just 1 thicker coat of polish instead of 2.

   So what do you girls think?  Want to try out some of the cheaper polishes now?  Wearing Hazel the last couple days reminded me that just because something doesn't cost a lot doesn't mean it isn't just as good.  I'm going to try to keep this lesson in mind.  I know my wallet will appreciate it.

  1. This is really pretty! I got one of the similarly inexpensive Scherer Chameleon duochrome polishes recently and really liked it.
