WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I’ve always been a huge fan of these Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes (check out my previous review here) so you can imagine how happy I am to be reviewing these amazing new colours for the Spring time. First off, I love the formula of these polishes! Not only are they extremely easy to apply but they go on very smoothly. Even if you make a mistake, when you go over it again it a thicker layer of paint, the polish will still smooth out in the end.

Colour: Barracuda (Purchase here)
This colour is an energized baby blue creme with a very tiny hint of turquoise in the base. While this is my favourite colour, the formula is not as great as the other colours. (You can probably tell by the swatch) Though I only need two coats, but it is very streaky after the first stroke. So the second stroke really makes all the difference.


Colour: Sweet Talker (Purchase here)
A beautiful baby/soft pink colour. This is definitely the one with the better formula and less streaking, probably because it’s much lighter than the other ones. I would even describe this colour as angelic because it’s simply stunning.


Colour: I Lilac You (Purchase here)
Once again another beautiful pastel purple colour polish. It has a bit of a grey undertone to it. The formula of this is a bit better than Barracuda and it’s not as runny and streaky. It’s opaque after 2 coats

RATING
Product (4/5)
Cost (4/5) – More pricey than other drugstore polishes but I’ve seen them in Dollarama before!
Ease of Use (5/5)
Packaging (5/5) – I love the thicker applicator!
