Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is a Knock Out

I recently received a few Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes from Influenster. I have used these products before and own quite a few, so i went into this product testing with a positive attitude. The shades i received complimentary from influenster for reviewing and testing purposes were Red My Lips, Pat on The Black and Jaded.

The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is just that.. a complete manicure. You can skip the base coat and top coat and get the same results had you used them. This product offers 7 benefits- base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, chip resistant, and gel shine. Unlike a lot of products in the drugstore this one lives up to its claims.

So, is this product the holy grail of polish or does it have some shortcomings?  Well, it all depends on what shade you use. For example, if you use Red My Lips you will get a perfect application because the formula is thin enough to give you a thin coat that drys fast but opaque enough that you don't have to use more than 2 coats. The flat brush also helps to deposit just enough polish. If you use Jaded, the experience is a little different. This shade lacked the pigmentation of Red my Lips and also Pat On The Black and was very hard to work with. Apply too much.,. and its goopy.. apply too little and its barely there. After 3 coats i finally got an opaque coverage. While that is a lot, i was thankful i didn't have to apply a base coat or top coat to it like other polishes. Pat on the Black, if applied slightly thick, needed only one coat and is great if you are in a rush to paint your nails but have about 10 minuets to let them dry. The other shades only took about 5-7 minuets to dry. Again, the time is still a lot less than if you had to wait for a base coat and top coat to dry.

Overall, i really like this product. There are many other shade choices available, including some gorgeous glitters! You can find these online at for about 6.49$ or in your local drugstore.
