SALLY HANSEN Nail Polishes are probably the best known brand available. For many years fashion designers have loved working with the Sally Hansen team to create polishes unique for their shows. This year three famous fashion houses asked Sally Hansen to collaborate on the color palette that they were showcasing this fall. The choice of Complete Salon Manicure is perfect for these shows since it’s an all-in-one polish. There’s a built-in base and top coat, they are chip resistant, and they have gel like shine without the hassle.
Prabal Gurung collaborated with Sally Hansen for the tenth consecutive season to create three exclusive nail polish shades to compliment his Fall 2015 collection, which is a graphic, modern take on effortless glamour. Three shades were chosen by Prabal Gurung. I have Midnight Affair which is a stunning navy that isn’t black based. The two other shades for Prabal Gurung’s fashions are Leaf Peeper and Concrete Jungle.
Rodarte is actually a team of sister designers who are known for their amazing style and a touch of controversy. “For the fifth season in a row, Rodarte has once again turned to nail color authority Sally Hansen to create three limited edition Complete Salon Manicure nail polish colors. The designers’ highly anticipated Fall 2015 Collection served as a muse for Sally Hansen’s nail color creations. The Fall 2015 nails are inspired by translucent color and the subtlety of watercolors.” These are more sheer than the other two collections, almost like a chiffon. With Rose Glass I need at least 3 coats because of my long nails but someone with shorter nails could do less. Rose Glass is a perfect work shade – still stylish but not over the top.
To prove how great Sally Hansen is, this is the 19th consecutive year that Tracy Reese has collaborated with Sally Hansen for the shades that best compliment her designs. Maasai Red was a one coater though I chose to wear two coats to get extra depth.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes sell for $7.99 MSRP and can be found at Target, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid and more. These are great for home manicures because you don’t need anything except the polish. You just need a steady hand, an orange stick to clean the sides and a little time to let them dry. Then you too can be a fashion maven without worry about spending your mortgage/rent money. — Marcia
