Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

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!’

  1. This range from Sally Hansen is very impressive with colours ranging from lovely natural pinky/ peach colours (which are often hard to come by in high end polish ranges!) to glam style glitters.

    I agree that the 10 day claim was not realistic of them and probably not a very effective marketing scheme.

    I would recommend this range to people looking for great quality at affordable prices. I still think OPI is the best in terms of quality but this comes very close!

  2. I love Sally Hansen Nail wear, there are so many shades to choose from, who can get bored at using this brand? It never lasts 10days on my nails but I still love it as it doesnt crack on my nails. Lavender Envy is my personal favourite.

  3. This brand of ail polish has always been 1 of my top 2. it did not last 10 days but i do change colors 1x a week cos i get bored with them. application is easy, colors are fab, works for me

  4. okay well no cutex last that long except gel colour which will last you two weeks if taken care of properly, but I hate having the same colour on for more than 4 days anyway so if it lasts me 3 days i’m cool with that. Cute colours too.

  5. No nail polish will ever last 10 days. Like when colouring your hair and the roots grow out and the colour fades, the same will happen with nail polish. But for an evening out, this is beautiful and vibrant. Sally Hansen can really do nails.

  6. I can’t really say how I feel about this product, but I’m not a fan of nail polish in general. I love it on my toes and I like a french on my fingers but other than that – if Sally Hansen can offer something awesome I’m up for it. I’ll try anything once.

  7. I absolutely love this nail polish! I don’t have time to wait for multiple layers to dry so using just the one bottle with a brush wide enough to cover my whole nail bed is such a time saver. Plus, I hate a thin nail polish as i find the it cracks on my nails, so the thickness is great!

  8. I definitely like this nail polish. The brush is wide enough to cover most of my nail to use as little amount of strokes possible. I like that it has a little grip on the handle, which makes it conveniently easier to paint your nails. However, it goes on sheer and uneven for me

  9. She’s a household name and comes a long way but i think i am the last person to hand out tips, but if i can give one please don’t make your cutex so thick, one coat is not enough to cover it and two coats takes a few minutes to dry so i am not very fond of this product.
