NOTD: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Red Zin


This is two coats of Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish in Red Zin. Wine Red.

Can we just talk about how epic the formula for this polish is for a minute? Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish is exactly what it says – a complete salon manicure in two simple coats. The formula contains base coat and top coat, so you do not need anything more than this little bottle. I was a little apprehensive about not using a base coat {especially for a color this dark}, as I was worried about staining; but I experienced zero - along with zero chips for the 6 days that I wore it. Plus, it retained its glossiness {yes, without the addition of a separate top coat} from day 1 through day of removal. Highly, highly, highly recommended - especially for all of you ladies who want glam nails but don’t have the time.

Special Note: Thank you to Carrie of Couture Carrie for introducing me to this brand. If you remember the Holiday Blog Swap I did back in December with Carrie, you may recall that I mentioned having received this polish from CC.

I just received my first bottles of the Salon Manicure formula from Sally Hansen: two super sheer colors and a pretty copper glitter. Now I'm super stoked to try them out after hearing you rave about the formula! I may even go out and pick up a few more deeper shades so that I can compare the difference! That shade of red looks divine on you dahling!

no chips for 6 days?!?! Holy heck! That's amazing- really. Looks phenomenal.

Claire Kiefer said...

Every time you post a picture of your nails I am mesmerized by how luscious they are! :)

This color is so pretty and I think you've sold me on the brand. I would be scared not to use a top coat, cause in my experience, polish chips on day 2 without a top coat! I'll certainly give this a try, though. Thanks for the recommendation!

Bostonista said...

Very sexy! And I can't believe it didn't chip for 6 days! Thats incredible!

Oh my goodness, that is a GORGEOUS colour. Not too bold yet still rich red. I love Sally Hansen, for a drugstore nail polish they're phenomenal. Hope everything's been going great with you! :)

Tights Lover said...

That color is gorgeous! As creative as some nail shades can get, I think red will still always be my favorite.

I like the accent nail too!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

You have such lovely hands! Oh my! That color is fabulous on your skin. And such a nice manicure!

Sara Gerard said...

That is the PERFECT shade of red! Perfect for Christmas and Valentine's day!

Diggin' the accent nail, the color and the cool name of it too.

Oooh, such a fab colour for winter, and I love it with your grey jumper too! And I love that you don't need a top coat, that's unusual.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

RE: your comment to me- yes, Erika! I would suggest a crock pot! It makes you feel like a Professional Chef when really- you're just putting things in a bucket and hitting a button :)
