Sula Beauty Paint 'n Peel Nail Polish : Trick or Treat?

When I was little, I use to put glue all over my hands just to let it dry and peel it off. There was something about peeling the glue of my hands that I really enjoyed. You did this too, come on… admit it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sula’s Paint ‘n’ Peel Nail Polish is like the glue equivalent for your nails but this is much more fun and prettier to look at.


Every time I walk by the Sula display at Ulta, I can’t help but admire all the shades. The shades do not have any shimmer in them but that’s ok, there’s a metallic top coat available to glam up your nails. I’m ok without that though, the creamy colors are enough for me, they areย  eye candy in a bottle!

Sula’s Paint ‘n Peel Nail Polish does have a few issues though. The formula itself really leaves a lot to be desired. From problems with application to the nail polish’s wear itself, this isn’t something I’d suggest for the gal (or guy) wanting to maximize their wear… just forget about it. In my testing,ย  Two coats of polish does not give you even color and when you try to add more, it becomes uneven. That was not the worst of it though, I could deal with the other issues if the following didn’t happen. The worst was when the color started curling up off the tips of my nails the very same day I applied the color. I was careful to avoid hot water for 3 hours as suggested and it still happened.

With that said, I am trying to see things on the bright side with Sula. They have a product that is different than practically all other nail polishes out there and it’s a formula that some may prefer because it’s non-toxic and dries quickly. That nail polish smell that annoys some is not present here in Paint ‘n Peel Nail Polish. Plus it’s safer for younger gals to use without worry. If you’re the type of gal who changes the color on her tips quite a few times a week, you will most likely not have a problem here because this product is a fun way to change things up in a hurry.

So I want to hear from you know. Have you tried Sula’s Paint ‘n Peel Nail Polishes? What did you think? Tell us about it in the comments.

  1. I really wanted to like these but I had the same problem…it just started peeling off and looking horrible within a few hours. I even tried their topcoat- it still peeled right off.I wasn’t expecting long wear but I at least wanted to get through the evening!

  2. So far I’m loving them! I put a little cuticle oil on and let it sink in before I applied the polish. I didn’t have the problem you mentioned about uneven application. Mine went on perfectly. Two coats and I have a flawless look. It was really easy to do touch ups also. I got a tiny bit on my skin and I gently rubbed it with a rough surfaced nail file and it peeled off.

    I just bought the black colour and I”m wearing it right now. I had some problem with chipping though. I accidentally knocked my hand against the kitchen cupboard and a piece came off. I’m still experimenting to see how best to make this work though. I SOOO prefer this to normal nail polish (which I hate). I wish their website had detailed information about how best to apply this stuff and what to do to keep the polish in place. I read other websites that said you need to let this kind of nail polish cure for several hours before it’s durable and they recommend putting it on at night when you’re less likely to chip it.

    Anyway…so far I’m REALLY liking it! I love that it doesn’t have a bad smell and feels really gentle on my nails. I plan to order more colours on Monday. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish me luck!
