Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure (Re-formulated & New Shades)

Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure ($7.99; Press Samples) range was re-formulated early this year and the new line features a 7-in-one formula with gel-like shine and better chip resistance. The Complete Salon Manicure range doesn't need a top or base coat, but I always start with a base coat to even out nails a bit. As for the formula, it is super easy to work with and very smooth - no steaks, bubbling or goopy texture. All swatches are two coats of polish.

Punch Drunk - Fuchsia with a creme finish. Lovely color for summer through fall!

Mudslide - Nude creme with a hint of peach. Perfect work appropriate polish.

Black and Blue - Blue/Purple duo chrome, flashes green in certain angles. My camera doesn't do justice to the color in the bottle. The duo chrome is much more evident in the swatch.

Plums The Word - Dark Plummy Grey. Murky color in the bottle, turns up so much darker on the nails.

Snow Globe - Gorgeous in the bottle and on the nails! Multicolored small and chunky hexagonal glitter in a clear base. One coat doesn't deposit a lot of glitter, 2 or 3 is perfect!

Copper Penny - Copper flecks in a clear base. The glitter is not chunky and makes for an amazing topping for any opaque, creme polish.

Debut-tint - Gold foil/shimmer in a white-ish base. This one looks better over another polish than by itself. Adds a lot of sparkle and shine!

Jaded - Light sage green. Jaded was very thin, consistency wise and the polish needs 3 coats to look like it does in the bottle.

Pink A Card - Light Creme pink. Not a very unique color, but fantastic as a base because of the opacity.

I wore Copper Penny over Pink A Card last week and loved the combo. My only problem with these polishes is the brush - that wide, big brush is too big for my smaller nails. There was just slight chipping after 3 days & I had used no topcoat. There's a lot of shine too, but it dulls down just a tad after a day or so. Overall, great polishes and the lasting power especially is pretty impressive!

All Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Polishes are 3-free.
