Sally Hansen New Complete Salon Manicure Polishes

Sally Hansen nail polishes landed on my desk last week. I have spent the last 8 days thoroughly enjoying them :)

The polishes are from Sally Hansen’s new range, Complete Salon Manicure. They are designed to be an all-in-one product combining a base, a top coat, strengthening and growth treatment and nail colour in one. Essentially they are supposed to give a salon manicure result from one bottle.

 

Left to Right:

Pat on the Black 660
All Fired Up 550
Gray by Gray 350
Raisin the bar 320
Shrimply Divine 520
Pink Slip 170

I can’t decide which one I like the most. When I first saw them I was immediately drawn to Gray by Gray (shocker). But I’m now in love with Shrimply Divine and Raisin the Bar. There are 36 shades in the range.

They’re easy to apply and dry quite quickly. The finish is smooth and shiny. Coverage wise – two coats is plenty, one coat was too sheer, three coats wouldn’t be necessary.

I love the packaging. The rubber bung around the lid actually adds to the look of the bottle. They cost €8.95 a bottle which is significantly less than OPI in Ireland and they’re just as good. I also love the names of the shades.

They claim to last 10 days on the nails but I experienced some wear and tear on the fourth day. No chipping or peeling, just some gentle wear signs. I should point out that my hands are frequently in water and I never wear rubber gloved whilst cleaning (tut tut) so this may have affected its longevity.

Swatches to follow over the next few days.

What shade appeals to you most?

    Never tried any Sally Hansen nail polishes before (I don’t even know if I can buy them here, in south of France), but I would like to! I will probably buy some next time Iam coming in Ireland… Where did you find them in Dublin?
    I have to say that I actually like the same shades as you, “Gray by Gray” “Raisin the bar” & “Shrimply Divine” ;)
    Thanks for sharing XoXo

    Pink slip looks gorg. Is it very sheer?

    • http://www.makeupandbeauty.ie Amy

      It is quite sheer Tara. It’s like a french polish shade.

    I am a pink girl, so I gotta go with the Pink Slip for my favorite color. Overall, I’ve had a pretty good experience with the quality of most Sally Hansen products :)

    • http://www.makeupandbeauty.ie Amy

      That’s good to hear. This is the first time I’ve tried the colour shades

  • Anna-Maria
