Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Review

 Last week I received some Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polishes in the mail from Imfluenster to try out. So I have been wearing it for the past week which is a feet for me I almost never get through a full 7 days of one color of nail polish.

Skip the salon, get the results. Don't settle for just color when you can get a base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, salon-inspired color, top coat, chip-resistance and a gel finish all in 1 bottle. Featuring the unique precision brush for a flawless finish and patented Vita Care technology for advanced 10 day wear, more shine and nourishing care.

540 Jaded

First off the formulas is extremely thin! This is just after one coat the color barely shows. In the bottle the color looks like its really opaque but when applied its not.

This is after a second coat. still fairly sheer. It also applied very streaky, most likely because of the thin formula.

After a third coat it was opaque enough for me yet the coverage was still streaky. I did however like the wider flat brush in the polish which made the application faster. The dry time on this polish is awful. It took almost an hour to dry and even after that a small bump left a gouge in the polish. A problem that occurs when you have to do many coats. The polish does have nice shine which lasts quite a while.

after 7 days
At first the polish seemed like it might hold up well. At about day 3&4 the polish was pretty well intact. The shine lasted well even in the 7th day the shine was quite good. The chip resistance however, does not quite hold up to the 10 days they claim you can get with it. By day 7 some nails were half chipped off and badly chipped around the edges and tips of nails.

All in all if feel that there are better nail polishes out there with much better formulas even Sally Hansen's other nail polishes have better formulas. With the sheer coverage and long dry time the Complete Salon Manicure would not be worth the buy for me.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes
