Sally Hansen Reviews

I decided to compile several Sally Hansen swatches and reviews into one post since I was in a swatching frenzy tonight. First up, we have *Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure (SHCSM) in Casting Call. This was two coats. As I've stated before (or, at least, I think I have), SHCSM has my FAVORITE brush to work with. It is wide and rather flat and makes application a breeze. This color is slightly lighter than *Coral Fever (which you'll get a peek at shortly) and it's just a fun peachy color, perfect for the dog days of summer.

Next up, *SHCSM in Paparazzi. As always, it applied smoothly and easily. However, this color was quite sheer after two coats, revealing lots of vnl. I would apply at least one more coat, possibly two, if wearing alone. I think it would give a nice shimmer to other colors if layered and, to be honest, that is more than likely how I will wear it in the future.

As promised, here is *SHCSM in Coral Fever along with *SHCSM Model Behavior. I reviewed these colors previously HERE. However, I wanted to show them when applied alone (two coats) in preparation for how they look beneath one coat of *Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in Fractured Foil: I am quite a fan of Sally Hansen's Crackles. I find their thin formula quite easy to work with (though, in a perfect world, their brush would be less "traditional" and more wide and flat like their Complete Salon Manicure brushes) and this silver one is definitely my favorite of the three I have tried. I think it looks great over both of these colors and I am really excited to try it over black!

I hope you enjoyed these swatches and reviews. If you have tried any of these products (or plan to), I'd love to hear your opinions of them. Thanks, as always, for reading!
