I live for summer nail polish collections.
Although I’m not really partial to any particular nail polish brand in particular, I’ve always been a fan of Sally Hansen’s lacquers. From the shade range to the different formulas and price points, Sally Hansen knows how to do nail polish right.
I recently received their summer collection in the Complete Salon Manicure line, which is comprised of six shades, most of which are fan favourites from what I’ve read online. Each shade is very on-trend for the season, whether that be a bold hue or a pastel. From peach to lilac to pinks and blues, this collection really encompasses summer!
It’s been a while since I’ve used a polish from her Complete Salon Manicure line. I feel like they’ve really been pushing the Miracle Gel line lately, so I’ve kinda forgotten all about the other formulas in her collection. This line features seven benefits in one bottle: a base coat, a growth treatment, colour, top coat, gel-shine finish, chip resistance, and a strengthener with keratin complex for stronger nails. It also guarantees 10 days of chip-resistant wear.
I always apply a separate base coat and top coat when I apply polish, but with these swatches I did just use this one colour alone. The formula was good for the majority of the shades. Some of them did apply a little thin, whereas others I could easily get away with one coat. I saved the reddish pink one (Tickle Me Pink) for last when it came to swatching them as I often find those shades tend to stain my nails. Thankfully it wiped away rather clean.
Overall I’m really digging these shades. They are on the softer side when it comes to the actual colour, but if pastels are your thing, then I would look into picking up a few of these guys.
Will you be picking up any colours from the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure summer 2017 collection?
