I'm not usually one to pay too much attention to the season trend reports that say what the colour du jour is, or which nail-art trend is sweeping the runways. I just do what I do. But when the things I love just so HAPPEN to be on-trend? I'll take advantage, thank YOU.
Today's nail? Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure in Copper.
Over the last year I've been ditching a lot of my cheap polish and sub-standard drug store polish. Bye bye Forever 21, hasta la vista Urban Outfitters, tah-tah Avon, and so-long Sally Hansen. Anything that requires three coats? Tossed. Anything that stinks to high heavens? Chucked. Anything with an unfortunate brush? Binned.
But not all drug-store polishes are made equal, and the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Makeover is one of those pretties. The polish claims to be an all-in-one polish. Meaning that it is not only a polish, but a base coat and top coat too. And does it deliver?
Why yes Virginia, it does.
This polish has a very thick, accurate brush, so you can pretty much cover the nail in 2 sweeps. It's a fairly consistent formula, not too runny, not too sticky, and it settles really, really well. This was two swift coats and it dried pretty quickly and lasted an entire work week with NO TOP COAT. Boom. And, another bonus to an all-in-one polish? It's basically cemented it's way into my heart as my designated travel polish. How can you go wrong?
As for the colour? Well, look! This is probably the most accurate copper colour I've ever known. It really captures that shift between gold and bronze, and my is it an eye-catching shade.
