An all-in-one product that gives a salon-perfect finish at home, with up to 10 days of long-lasting wear, ultimate care and fresh-looking shine.
Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure combines a base and top coat, strengthening and growth treatment and salon-inspired colour.
What we say:
‘The journalist in me secretly rubs her hands together in gleeful anticipation when I get sent products and their attached press releases make claims of “longer lashes in 2 weeks”, or “intense all day colour”, or in Sally Hansen’s case ” up to 10 days of long-lasting wear “. I was eager to get the 10-day challenge started, so when Day 1 came around I dutifully applied the shiny lacquer. Day 2 came and went, but by Day 3 I needed to remove the polish – receding colour along the edge of your nails isn’t very sexy.
‘Unfortunately the 10-day claim only lasted three days, but I must admit that I hadn’t applied a top coat. So on the second round of testing (top coat added this time), the colour lasted for four days – which isn’t bad at all considering all my other nail polishes begin chipping at the end of Day 1.
‘Aside from the long-wear claim, Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure does offer a glossy finish (yay) and a creative range of shades ranging from Plums the Word, to Cherry Cherry Bang Bang and even Good to Grape – perfect plum colours for winter. It’s one of the most affordable colours that doesn’t stain my nails and actually leaves them in a great condition once the colour is removed. My nails were left stronger, and even grew quicker – maybe that’s why the polish started receding at my tips?
‘I absolutely loved the double brush which completely covered my nail in just one stroke, as well as the elegantly designed bottle Sally Hansen colours have become synonymous with!’
