I bought this polish alongside many other polishes in a clear pouch from Christmas Tree Shops. The name of the polish is Sally Hansen Teflon Tuff 10 Day Nail Color.

The color is 38 Pink Crystal Frost. At first glance, this polish looks like an ideal spring or summery pink. In its bottle, the polish looks like a warm light super-shimmery peachy pink. But to my dismay, it dries down to a sad, pitiful very frosty whitish-pink.

Currently, I have the polish on my toes. I wouldn't dare wear it on my fingers. I might go blind from the too-light frostiness! If not for this review I planned to write, I would have taken the polish off my toes sooner. I dislike the color that much. It is just that unappealing. The color tends to settle into nail ridges. The frosty metallicness of the polish highlights any flaws in your nails.

I wanted to test the promise of 10 Day Nail Color. I painted my toenails on 6/28/09. I painted them without a basecoat or a topcoat, because I wanted it to be all about the performance of the Teflon Tuff nail polish. On 7/5/09, I checked how well the nail polish fared. On quite a few nails, there were some areas where the nail polish chipped completely off. I can only imagine how poorly the nail polish would have performed on my fingernails. Nail polish tends to last much longer on my toes than on my fingers!

Since my nail polish chipped before the 10th day, Sally Hansen Teflon Tuff failed. Possibly, this polish could be better in a different color with a top coat.
