Hag Fish Skin ;)

For today I have a kind of a palate cleanser if you will. I am so gosh darn pale that nudes really don't do it for me. This is the most boring I get and I actually LOVE greys :)

As for the title of this post, my biology teachers FAVORITE fact:
'Anything marketed as eel skin (eel skin bags or wallets etc) Are actually made with Hag fish skin. But noone would want to buy a Hag fish skin purse!!!'

Haha it cracked me up everytime!!

So for today, I give you Eel Skin by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure!!

All of the above pics have no top coat, one coat on pinky, two on ring, three on middle, and four on pointer.
This was very opaque and you could totally get away with using just two coats!! Plus it is very shiny on its own. 

Right now I am wearing it as a full mani and to change it up I used Essie Matte about you top coat. I think it looks awesome like this!! Now it totally reminds me of hag fish skin!!! haha 

The above photos have two coats!

In case any of you were wondering here is a pic of a hag fish, I really don't know why they have such a weird name!

They are really cool animals actually, they can tie themselves in a knot to escape predators! woo :)

You learn something new everyday don't you?! 


  1. love this polish! looks great on you!

  2. Thanks! Its the benefit of being really pale :)

  3. I like that! I've never liked the way greys look in the bottle, I should suck it up and just buy one to try on my pale self since you made that look so good!

  4. Yeah!! I actually just discovered my love of greys!
