SALLY HANSEN NAIL PRODUCT REVIEW FEAT. GEL SHINE 3D COAT + COMPLETE SALON MANICURE !


HELLO BEAUTIES! 

Firstly, HAPPY LONG WEEKENDS! In Australia, I knew Queen's Birthday came in handy for a reason and boy am I excited because I get to venture out of Sydney in a few days! I'll reveal the location on my Instagram :) (Don't worry I'll be back with more reviews and posts) It sure has been a long hectic week and I am just excited to kick back and rejuvenate myself once again. My life is always busy but I'm always able to juggle the many challenges that come with it. 

In this review, I'll be covering Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure and their Gel Shine 3D Top Coat! Both are are amazing brands I have tested out on my nails and today, it makes it debut on my beauty blog! I haven't reviewed a Sally Hansen nail product before so that's why I am so excited to collate this post for you guys and really talk about what I thought of it. I love doing my own nails as compared to sitting in a nail salon and getting a professional to do it because it's all about the convenience and relaxation I get when doing my nails at the comfort of my own home. Plus, I know that the tools that I am using are safe, hygienic and of good quality. 

The two colours I used this week is a contrast of each other. One colour is brightly looking whereas the other is more of the neutral coloured side. 

Learn why these cute nail polishes contain 7 benefits in just 1 bottle.... (Scroll below) 



#NOTD with Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure plus the Gel Shine 3D Top Coat. 



My nails painted using Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in 543 Berry Important


 Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure (14.7ml) in 543 Berry Important 


Kicking off with the Sally Hansen range is this luscious, berry looking nail polish colour called Complete Salon Manicure in 543 Berry Important. My first impressions of the nail polish was that it was chunky looking and contained quite a bit of nail polish in it. (At 14.7g) I love it when the size of my nail polish is BIG because you know that it will last you long for a few months.

Interestingly enough, this bottle of nail polish already includes the following:
  • Base coat
  • Strengthener
  • Growth treatment
  • Top coat
  • Salon inspired colour
  • Chip resistance
  • Gel finish 
Count all of these benefits up and you get in total 7 benefits that come with using this fine nail polish. It's really amazing because I felt that the finish was perfect and I didn't even have to add the top coat. However, for testing purposes I even added the Gel Shine 3D top coat just to give it a little boost of shine to my nails which you can see from the image above. In just one little bottle, this can do many wonders to your nails and you don't have to worry about the top and base coat when it comes to applying it onto your nails. 

Now moving on to the technology side of things, the nail polish formula has been formulated with three proprietary time-released, protecting shine enhancers which then gives your nails more of a longer lasting shine. This is similar to how you would get a gel-shellac finish to your nails but this time without a gel manicure. You can achieve the same effect by using this new bottle by Sally Hansen. You'll find that with these shine enhancers in effect, once these nano-tubes are released - this will prevent any wear and tear which means you get the maximum chip resistance benefit to your nails. I dread it every time my nails chip away and there goes my beautiful manicured nails... I always look for nail polish that consists of a good formula where my nails would most certainly benefit from it all. 

Next, we talk about the brush itself I have included pictures of if you scroll down below to see how it's really made and shaped. I found that the brush has a brilliant sort of precision to it and it definitely makes painting my nails much easier. The Precision like brush has been designed by Sally Hansen exclusively and what you'll notice is that it's rounded to fit the curve of your cuticles. So when applying the nail polish on, I found the nail polish to go on quite neater and cleaner. Apparently there's 800 bristles on the brush which definitely gives the nail streaks more of fuller look when applying. I have never used a brush like this before and the feel was amazing. It was so much easier painting my nails using this unique brush and I found that my application was neater and better. Also, ]when I dipped the brush into the nail polish bottle, I found that it picked up more product than other types of brushes which was good because it saves me from re-dipping quite a few times. 

So lets talk about the colour itself, 543 Berry Important. When I first saw the name, I imagined maybe some colour pigments of purple? Nope, it's of a deep, bright red colour similar to raspberries. It's a sexy and vampy kind of colour which makes it perfect for those who are wanting that fierce and catty look. (Vampire Diaries anyone?)
I love the colour because it's bright, vibrant and best of all you can actually see the gel-like shine on my nails. 

What's great is that the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail polishes are DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free. This bottle of formula is practically safe to use and not harmful at all when used on your nails. This is a great aspect of the Sally Hansen range. It's such a pretty and vibrant colour to wear when you're out because it can definitely match any outfit that you wear. Overall I LOVE their new range and for this particular range, I am giving them a full 5/5 stars for this.

 Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure (14.7ml) in 370 Commander in Chic

Moving on to the same range as discussed above but in a different colour called 370 Commander in Chic. (Such a groovy name but also a groovy colour in the neutral coloured tones.) 

This colour is more of a light brownish type of nail polish and very well depicts its name: Commander in Chic. Put a chick and army gear together and you get Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure. For the swatch above, I can wear these nails with white or neutral coloured outfits. The colour somewhat reminds me of the 1990s era when ladies were rocking this colour. I am glad this colour is coming back and trending in the beauty world now. This is a really nice and neutral coloured type of colour if you don't feel like anything vibrant but still want to have at least some colour to it. 

As previously mentioned above, this formula contains 7 benefits which includes Base coat, Strengthener, Growth treatment, Top coat, Salon inspired colour, Chip resistance & Gel finish all in one fancy bottle. 

POSITIVES:
  • Comes with the following: Base coat, Strengthener, Growth treatment, Top coat, Salon inspired colour, Chip resistance & Gel finish 
  • Free from DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde. 
  • Precision brush exclusive to Sally Hansen. 
  • Vibrant colour. 
  • Easy to wear. 
  • Added shine to nails.

  • Zilch!

Now onto Sally Hansen's Gel Shine 3D Top Coat in Transparent Clear 


Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat

If you're wanting to achieve the same desirable final result same to a Gel-polish or shellac looking nails, then this is the product for it. Sally Hansen's Gel Shine 3D Top coat is an instant formula where it offers gel shine and volume to your top coat. You don't even need to out your nails under a UV or LED lamp for the final finish. For me, I just applied one coat of this beauty and allowed my nails to dry. The results: Instant shine! 

This formula provides the look of fuller and shinier looking nails. How this formula really works is that the acrylic gel formula creates a tight mesh that combines any nail colour to add a really nice and glossy finish to your nails. Its also contains a vinyl complex to the nail formula which is what gives your nails more of a voluminous look. People won't even spot the difference plus it looks good too with its extra glossy finish.

For this particular top coat, I just applied only one coat over my Sally Hansen nail colour. The packaging of the nail polish is beautiful in its shiny silver bottle. It's very chic and sleek and what's more, it certainly stands out from the rest of my nail polish collection. The polish itself does not give off a strong scent but in fact is more low scented which is good. The brush itself grabs an adequate amount of the formula and when distributed onto nails, it's not too runny which is good. It made my nails look more plump and the drying finish is quick. I am glad that my nails have a glossy finish to them and they look more amazing! 

POSITIVES:
  • Dries quick. 
  • Creates the 3D, fuller look to your nails. 
  • Easy to remove with nail polish remover, 
  • Gives more of a glossy finish. 
  • The packaging is sleek and chic. 
NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch!
BEAUTY TIPS:
  • Add just one coat to your nail colour. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 
  • RRP $16.95
  • Check out HERE for their official website for all the latest product you can check out here...(They have more amazing colours!) 
  • If you're located in Australia, they can be found at Priceline pharmacies nationwide.

I really hope you enjoyed reading all about the new collection to Sally Hansen! I can't wait to try out more of their amazing colours! 

Happy reading! 

Cheers,
