Happy Hands Mayonegg

I've got another Arrested Development-themed Happy Hands polish to show you today! This time we'll be checking out Mayonegg. If you haven't seen the show (which I suggest correcting at the earliest possible opportunity), then allow me to explain: This polish's name is inspired by...well, I think this will explain it better than I can.

Still got an appetite? Great, let's look at some polish! ;) Happy Hands Mayonegg has a shimmering white base with yellow hex glitter. It's much prettier than its inspiration might suggest.

I'm a fan of how unique this polish is, but unfortunately, I was less than pleased with the formula. I had originally tried wearing Mayonegg on its own, but the polish was so thick and the glitter went on so goopy that by the time I was on the second coat, my nails were looking like a hot, lumpy mess. So I decided to scrap that idea and layer one coat of Mayonegg over Sally Hansen White On, a white creme. The final result is what you see in these pictures. Layering Mayonegg helped the lumpiness. It just does not have a workable texture, at least from what I experienced.

I really can't decide how I feel about this polish. I love the end result, but getting there was a bit of a trial. It hasn't deterred me from my quest to eventually own all of Happy Hands' AD-themed polishes though--not by a long shot! Are you willing to overlook a problematic formula if you like the finished mani?


  1. This is a really cool polish! It's unique but that sucks about the formula though.

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping some thinner will salvage it.

  2. Love the name for this polish ;)
