Beauty Product Review: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

I have to admit, I am SO not into the whole nail art fad that's going on right now. Tiny little flowers and hearts and bows meticulously painted onto fingernails just doesn't do it for me. At most, I might do a variation on the french-tip look. For example, I used a white polish to lighten up a dark purple polish. Using the two shades, and some carefully placed scotch tape, I had a bit of an ombre effect. It was cute. I also once painted my nails white with yellow at the tips. Or was it yellow with white tips? I can't remember. It's not only that I don't want to put the time and effort into carefully creating the design. (That IS a factor, thought.) It's that at the end of the day, I think it looks dumb. Anyway, my point is simply this: I am just not into nail art. Never have been. Probably never will be. What I am into is unique colors for my nails- something besides the basic red and pink that we grew up with.

At Target, I found this awesome color called "Pumice" by Sally Hansen. It's the "Complete Salon Manicure" line and I love this brand of polish because the brush is so well-designed. Even a klutz like me can get perfectly even coverage without getting it all over my cuticles and fingers. Seriously, check out this nail polish if you are are neatness-impaired when it comes to doing your own nails. It will be a godsend.

Anyway, what I loved about this color was the fact that is was a cool, neutral grey:

Isn't it fabulous? I like that it's a little bit green, but still very neutral. (It's a little less green in real life, fyi.) I've been wearing it all week and it hasn't chipped once! Impressive, right? 

What's your favorite nail color? Do you love or hate the nail art trend? Leave a comment! And thanks for reading!

I have a two bottles of this: one in peachy keen, which is sheer, and one in mocha, which is a beautiful pale rust color that's perfect for fall. And I agree-- the contoured brushes make the application so much easier!
