Nails Of The Week ~ Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure ~ Grass Slipper

I'm back with my nails of the week! Last week I wore OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender from there Hong Kong collection. It wore well and lasted the week with some fading at the tips at the end of the week but overall I had no chipping.

This week I thought I would change it up with the brand. I got a new nail polish from Sally Hansen so I decided to do my nails with this for the week. I picked up one of the new Complete Salon Manicure nail polishes.

I have used the Diamond Strength and Maximum Growth Sally Hansen nail polishes in the past and wasn't too pleased with them as I had lots of chipping so I was leery of this one but all the colors were so eye catching in the drugstore! Plus I figured since these are new they must have improved the formula, right?!

I decided to go with the color Grass Slipper. It's a bright pretty green. All photos are two coats.

So the formula was a bit thick but not too bad. The application was good. The first coat was almost opaque with a few streaks. A second coat evened it out.

I LOVE the brush on these! The brush is flat and rounded so as you lay it on the nail it curves right to the shape of your nail and one sweep down and the application is basically perfection. I'm sure we all hate when we do our nails and it gets on our skin, then we have to clean it up! Well with this you don't get that because of the shape of the brush! If you do it's REALLY minor! These photos are before any cleanup! :-)

I have received a TON of compliments on this color! I was getting some more moisturizer at Estee Lauder today and a girl next to me at the counter told me she loved my nails. I thought that was really nice of her. Then she tells me she's a manicurist! That compliment suddenly meant so much more! Not that it didn't mean anything before but it was just cool to me because I just polish them at home and I don't think they are nice even though I try! Haha! So it meant a lot! :-)

Overall I really love the color and application of this nail polish. I might get a few more. I'll report back on the wear next week.

You can find the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure at your nearest drugstore, Ulta, or Target.

Price ~ Around $8 but you can usually always find a BOGO sale.

This colour is fabulous! It's one of my favourite colours, I just bought a top this colour today and that polish would go perfect! :)

That color is great! I tend to gravitate toward funky, cool, nail polishes like that.

That is a really pretty color :)And I love the applicator! The Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polishes have the same type of applicator...I love them. And you are right, they make applying the nail polishes a breeze.
