Sally Hansen New Base and Top Coats

Sunday, 27 March 2016
These are fairly new additions to the Sally Hansen range and I have really been putting them to the test lately. As you have probably realised from the uptick in nail related Instagram and blog posts lately, I'm a little obsessed with my nails at the moment. Don't worry, my blog will still have a good mix of makeup and skincare too but for now... Viva la Nails!

Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment $19.95
I have never really been one for nail strengthening treatments, mostly because I always have polish on them instead. Of course the reason I was so attracted to this new release is because it can be used as a base coat beneath your usual polish. The 7 different benefits it provides are; 1) Base Coat, 2) Top Coat, 3) Growth, 4) Strengthener, 5) Ridge Filler, 6) Brightener and 7) Ultra-Moisturizing. I would agree with all of those claims and I definitely find it a great base coat to condition my nails and prep them for colour. It is a fairly thick formula but it goes on really smoothly which would be great if ridges are a problem for you. My favourite part is that it dries super fast. I have tried the Revitanail treatments in the past but they took forever to dry so I gave up. It is also a really quite large, generously sized bottle at 13.3mL so why not condition your nails while also preventing staining and all that regular base coat stuff.

Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat $12.95
I always tend to prefer he super glossy nail manis but for some looks you just need a matte top coat. It is also so much more cost effective and logical than buying a bunch of matte polishes. This top coat does exactly what it says, perfectly mattifying any normal polish to expand your collection possibilities. Some matte polishes I have used were also a little streaky but this top coat gave a gorgeous smooth finish. The polish also wasn't compromised at all and lasted its usual 3-4 days before chipping like it usually does with a normal top coat. I can really see myself getting a lot of use out of this in winter with gorgeous matte grey and neutral manis. 
Before - No Top Coat
After - With Big Matte Top Coat
Sally Hansen Big Shiny Top Coat $12.95
I picked this one up on a whim and I actually ended up really liking it. It gives a super glossy finish and helped to extend the wear of my manicure. I also like renewing my top coat every day or two to keep my mani looking fresh and this one layered well too. I think it is a little glossier than my normal top coats (but only by a little) and it dried very quickly. Basically it is a great base coat and it is really affordable too. I would definitely recommend it. I used it to seal my Jamberry wraps here and add a shiny finish. 

All in all, I really love these new additions to the Sally Hansen range. I have been trying a lot of Sally Hansen products lately and I have to say that I am very impressed! They are affordable and excellent quality. I really don't know why it took so long to jump on the bandwagon.

What other Sally Hansen nail products do I absolutely need to try? Will you be trying any of these after reading my review? Let me know in the comments below. 

Stay Rosy.
