Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure – All Fired Up

I’m a DIY mani type of girl, and my latest nail polish crush is the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line. The formula promises “a base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, salon-inspired color, top coat, chip-resistance and a gel finish all in 1 bottle.” In other words, the polish contains a little bit of everything you want for nail health — and super shine.

I tried All Fired Up, a hot orange-based red. The thick, flat brush made it easy to apply, and it dried quickly to a super-shiny finish. BUT, full disclosure, I still used my holy grail Seche Vite top coat over it, because that stuff is just liquid gold and I can’t skip it, even if Sally Hansen claims it’s not needed. By the way, have any of you tried the Complete Salon Manicure polish without a top coat? If so, let me know what you thought!

Mineral Fusion Radiant Amber and Grotto

In other nail news, I was at my local Whole Foods in the beauty section, and noticed an incredible nail polish display. I had never seen so many cool colors at once, let alone in the middle of a health food store. Turns out, it was Mineral Fusion.

The polishes are formaldehyde, toluene, camphor and dibutyl phthalate-free. The colors are amazing — everything from classic ballet pink to bright creamy yellow and tons of shimmery shades, too.
