You may have noticed that we're hardly perpetual rays of sunshine around here, but even so, we seem to spend a lot of our time enthusing about one gewgaw or another. Doubtblush exists to make it clear that we do not, in fact, like everything.
Not all nail polish is created equal. And when a company tries to create a superior nail polish and fails, we have to call attention to it. Sula Paint and Peel Polish ($9) seems like a great idea. You apply it, you get bored with it, you peel it off. However, read the fine print. Seeing how it is a water-based polish, it takes a million coats to apply thoroughly; it lacks the chemicals that otherwise even out the color. And not only is the application terrible, you're prohibited from putting your nails under hot water for three hours once it's on. We're sorry, but when we use the restroom, we wash our hands with soap and hot water. And while we could just pee before painting our nails to spare ourselves a polish meltdown, that is far too much foresight required for what should be a simple polish job. Pass.
