I was in NYC this last weekend for The Makeup Show and had ZERO time to get a manicure so I popped into the drugstore and as I was looking around at the polishes, I was happy to see some GREAT colors but also some really great formulas. First off, you need to know this up front…..I am HORRIBLE with manicures. I am so impatient and infamous for ruining $40 manicures because I can’t be bothered to wait for my nails to dry (I know……horrible! LOL) So anything that dries quick is golden in my book. I grabbed a bottle of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in the most beautiful shade called Black Platinum which is a silvery, grey black. I slicked a bit on my thumbnail and was surprised to have a completely dry nail in about 2 minutes just from that one coat.
The brush is slightly flat (which is awesommmeee) and it is a 5 in 1 formula which includes a base coat, strengthener, grow treatment, color and top coat. 3 days and no chipping AT ALL. It’s also very easy to apply and comes in a wide range of shades. And talk about shiny!! This photo is two coat of JUST the polish, no additional top coat! I think this polish is PERFECT for a quick and dirty DIY manicure or when you don’t have time for the real thing.
Grab yours for approximately $7 at major drugstore retailers nationwide or online at drugstore.com.
