my latest nail polish obsession

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 'Purple Heart' - £6.99

I've featured this pretty polish quite a few times on my blog within a short space of time so I thought it  was about time I dedicated an entire post to it! I'd never tried a Sally Hansen nail polish before until Mimi bought me one for my birthday back in January. She knows I'm a huge nail polish obsessive so she knew I would be pleased by her purchase! When I first laid my eyes on this I instantly loved the colour of it & I'm glad to say it doesn't disappoint when it's applied either! Dontcha' just hate it when a colour never looks as nice on your nails! It's a creamy pastel lilac shade which reminds me of the purple party ring biscuits (best biscuits ever!) & applies like a dream. It has one of those brushes with the rounded ends so it coats the nail evenly in one swipe. Wear time is another amazing factor about this polish. Working in retail my nails are usually chipped within the first day of being painted so I was really surprised when this lasted 3-4 days with no chip damage at all! I'd say it lasts around a week before it needs to be removed completely which is pretty damn good. I think the long lasting effect is thanks to the polish being quite a thick formula, but it's not too thick that it's gloopy & difficult to apply. You can even get away with one coat of it but I like to apply two to ensure it's fully opaque & to increase the wear time. The finish is smooth & shiny due it having a built in top coat, it definitely looks like a salon manicure! The polish also acts as a base coat so theres no need to apply one which saves a lot of time & faffing around. 

I can't tell you how many compliments I've had whenever I've worn this, mostly from customers at work saying how much it suits my skin tone, so if you're quite pale like me this will apparently flatter your complexion! Along with Essie, Sally Hansen sits right at the top of my best drugstore polish list, I can't fault them & I can see myself gathering up quite a collection of them!

Have you tried any Sally Hansen polishes?
