My Nail Polish: You Won't Believe It!

Many of you asked about my nail polish color in the previously posted weekend beach pictures. It's from Sally Hansen's "Complete Salon Manicure" line. After just one application, I'm a converted woman. I used to swear by Essie and O.P.I and being the polish snob that I am, refused to color my nails with anything else. Until I had Carter. And coincidentally became a member of Team Budget Lockdown.

Until this past weekend, I couldn't remember the last time I painted my own nails. I wish I was lying, but it's the truth. For years, I was a bi-weekly manicure getter from the local nail salon. It's funny how something so small and innocent (ie: CARTER) could so quickly quash one's manicure-indulging lifestyle.

While perusing the shelves at a local drugstore, I came across Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure line and instantly fell in love with this dusty-brown-grey color (with a smidge of plum color thrown in). I'm not sure how it stacks up against other drugstore polishes, but at $7.99 a bottle, I didn't think it would break the bank. Not to mention that it's pretty much a base coat, top coat, strengthener and color polish all in one! It's like.. one stop shopping, a la nail polish! As we new moms know, we barely have time to throw a coat of color polish on our nails, let alone a base coat, top coat and sealant. Fuggedaboutit! Therefore, this product is perfect for me! 

Needless to say, 15 minutes and two coats of polish later, wha-la! A gorgeous Fall manicure. So far, this mani has stood up against countless bottle washes, diaper changes and hand washes. No chips, no smudges! Pretty stellar, if I do say so myself! 

Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure, Commader in Chic? Five fabulous stars! Please note that I was in no way compensated for this review. I was neither provided the product nor reimbursed for my purchase and review. This review is simply from one manicure-a-holic to another! Enjoy! Although, let it be known that if Sally Hansen has any interest in sending me some more of her darling Complete Salon Manicure line, I would welcome it with open arms!


  1. THANK YOU for this review!!! I keep looking at these polishes when I am at Target or the drugstore and now I have a stamp of someone's approval to give them a try!

  2. Yes I have this and have blogged about it before! I am wearing it as we speak!

  3. I'm SOLD! Point me to the nearest Target!

  4. Agreed, I love that stuff. I've been using it for about 6 months now and it's perfect!

  5. My friend works for Coty who makes Sally Hansen products! I'm asking if she can get a case. :)

  6. I am going to go out and get me some of that! I always was a "color" girl on my nails, but when I had Tommy last September, had no choice but to make some changes. Even went without polish for weeks at a time (shocking for me). Eventually went to the more natural tones so the chips wouldn't be so noticeable, moreso to me than anyone else, because I am a freak about "fixing" them. Just started getting brave again with the dark colors. Thanks so much for the "review" and recommendation!

  7. That is one of my favorite nail polishes. I always get so many compliments when I have it on.

  8. So I bought some of this miracle in a bottle that you speak of and I am trying it tonight! I will be sure to let you know how it goes and give you a full report on hopefully my likes ;)
