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!
