Talking Sally Hansen

Left to Right: Red Zin, Loden Green, Gray by Gray, Summer Plum, Bittersweet


So, I finally managed to dip my toe into the world of Sally Hansen Complete Manicure Salon Nail Polish courtesy of the bargain prices found on Fragrance Direct, £1.49 with a usual RRP of £6.99. It's safe to say they don't disappoint.

They're not particularly the most Spring/Summery shades, but I don't really buy into all that jazz where you have to adhere to the seasons - I like what I like. They're a bit on the grungy, dirty side of things, but I like that, they're the colours that tend to suit me well and you don't always tend to find in other brands.
The brushes are perfect for smooth, fast application.

  Red Zin is beautifully rich and for a person who doesn't usually opt for a red, its deep wine colour is too sophisticated to refuse.
Loden Green, a muddy khaki is really up my street.
Gray by Gray, very similar to Revlon's Nail Enamel in Chic, a shade I've had my eye on for a while now and a gorgeous sea blue grey creme (if that even makes sense).
Summer Plum is a deep purple mauve creme. A grown up colour and would compliment all skin tones.
They are all beautiful, but I think I'd have to say Bittersweet is my favourite as I haven't really seen a shade like it before - a deep brown in the bottle, but on application its grey/black undertones come out and it's such a stunning colour.

Formula is flawless: provides me with that glossy manicure look. And I don't like to admit this, but yes, I am occasionally partial to some lovely packaging - the bottles are strong and great quality, plus there is so much product in there for your money with 14.7ml.

It's safe to say that I will be on the look out to for more of the range to add to the collection, and at only £1.49 per bottle, why not?!
