Reviews for Complete Salon Manicure by Sally Hansen

I tried out this nail polish when I had it applied during Priceline's 30 days of beauty event. The shade I chose is 'Mermaid's Tale' which is a clear blue polish with green and blue glitter.
The lady applied it without an opaque base colour. I normally would have applied it with one, for example a green, blue or black base colour, to get the full impact of the glitter. The bottle looks like it's jam packed with glitter but the polish actually applies with a subtle blue tint and sparse glitter. At first I was disappointed with the effect because I'm a fan of bold nail polish especially in jewel metallic or glitter shades (which is why I chose the shade). I grew to love the subtle look as it looks lovely and understated until the light hits it at a certain angle and the glitter flashes for a brief moment. Not only that but it's understated enough that you could get away with it in some workplaces.
While it says there's no need for a base and top coat, the makeup artist who applied it used both and I would at least use a base coat because some nail polishes stain without one. It lasted a decent while with both a base and top coat.
I like the packaging which looks quite classy. It's not exactly cheap but it's not overly expensive either. I think it's definitely worth the price. Overall, I highly recommend this polish.

I love this polish
I really wish I didn't love this polish so much, because I really need to stop buying. I must have it in about 8 different colours, mostly varying shades of pink. My absolute favourite is I Pink I Can, a vibrant bubblegum pink,out of all the colours that I have it seems to go on the smoothest. I always apply two coats (that goes for any colour) the first coat can sometimes appear a bit patchy or streaky, but after the second coat it's always shiny and smooth. I find that Pink At Him, a pale pink, is a little more temperamental, and doesn't seem to like to dry. I love, love, love the brush, it's nice and wide and makes application super easy, and I think for the price it's a pretty reasonably sized bottle. There's a large range of colours, and they do have limited edition from time to time (such as their Melbourne Cup range that was available late last year). While it does say that it has it all, I use a Sally hansen base and top coat with this product and it is seriously long wearing, the tips begin to chip, but I tend to change my colour after a couple of days anyway. I also find that someone polishes weaken my nails, not the case with these ones.

One of my favourite nail polishes
I have this in Golden Rule and another one in a taupe/brown colour.
I adore the shapes of the bottles and I adore the brushes on the polishes...by far the best. I always thought that nothing could compete with OPI...until I met Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure...this is as good as OPI....
Every single time I use this brand I get an effortless salon-worthy nail polish job, without the price tag. The brush allows perfect polish distribution...2 coats gives me my desired look. The finish is a high gloss, smooth colour. I find this dries in good time and this nail polish seems to last me for ages before looking scrappy....I want to own every colour in this line.

Wears well on the nails
These polishes have wide brushes that end to cover a large portion of the nails. Dry time is quite fast, and while semi-opaque on the first stroke, it generally takes two coats to look complete.
They come in a variety of shades, including a number of fun ones, and last up to 5 days on me generally. They have a reasonably glossy finish without a top coat, and are quite easy to use.

I purchased this on a whim, because i was after a peachy/coral colour and this was the closest i could find to that. The shade i bought was Peach of Cake! It's a lovely peachy pink colour! The formula it's self is really cool, i didn't realise it was a base and top coat as well with strengthening properties! No wonder it's so awesome! I'll be going home to pop this one on tonight!

I'm in love with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure.
It comes in a variety of funky and classic shades, From my personal favourite - Black. To my nieces favourite - Bright Pink.
It's relatively oddorless which is a big thing for me as I suffer allergies and a lot of brands make me sneeze. And let me tell you, sneezing while painting your nails complicates things.
It's chip resistant - which is great for someone like me who does a lot of cooking and cleaning.
It treats my nails.
You don't need base or top coat.
It's easy to remove - there's nothing worse than nail polish that takes 20 minutes to remove.
It dries quick - great for the busy woman.
And it stops your nails breaking!
All in all, it's a perfect nail polish.

Very beautiful polish!
I love this nail polish because I have tried so many nail polishes that chip in about two days! But this one doesn't. It has opaque colour, and dries fast as well, which is a bonus because in Darwin it is so humid that it normally takes hours for nail polish to dry! The colour range is also extensive, with the staple blacks, whites, and beiges, but also with colours that you don't see all that often (greige, taupe, etc.). The downside of this is that it can be quite expensive, and is only $5 off the price of OPI polishes.

I have just one of these, but will be buying plenty more.
I like that the polish can be an "all in one" product, it makes drying time quicker. The polish comes in a large, nice looking bottle, and has a brush that is short & wide. Great for applying polish neatly & quickly.
Often my polishes start to peel or chip in just 2 or 3 days, but I get a good 5 days wear with this before issues. That is without a separate topcoat too. Really does live up to its claims.

Beauty in a Bottle
I love this collection, especially their limited edition. I tried their Gold roses and for a rose gold jewellery lover, it's perfect for any outfits. It has a fine gold shine with a metallic finish which is very suitable for work or uni! I love products that go well for everyday wear! Sally Hansen also has a unique brush tip which I noticed when I applied nail polishes from the Face Shop - there was an obvious differences. They have a wide brush tip that expands very smoothly when you glide it onto your nails, leaving no stripy marks (unlike face shop). So this is why price wise, I would go for Sally Hansen over Face Shop.
