Treatments -Sally Hansen -Cuticle Massage Cream with Apricot Extract

I actually think this cuticle cream is better than the Burt’s Bees cuticle balm or other cuticle oils I’ve tried. The key is to use a generous amount and really coat the cuticles and skin surrounding my nails and leave it to moisturize and soften the area overnight. I use a small spatula to scoop out the product, otherwise I’d be swirling my finger around and around without picking up enough to really coat the area but you certainly can do this for a light application if that is all you are looking for. It has an apricot scent which isn’t my cup of tea but it’s tolerable. The product comes in a small pot with a safety seal under the lid that is an absolute bitch to remove. I had to MacGyver the crap out of it and nearly tossed it before I managed to get to the cream. I’m glad I persevered because it really was worth the effort. I much prefer the screw on lid style of this pot than the metal tin used by Burt’s Bees. After only a short time of use my cuticles are so much softer and easier to maintain, and I rarely get hangnails anymore.

Polishes -Sally Hansen -Complete Salon Manicure Mauvin On Up 343

on 12/2/2017 9:41:00 PM

Creamy, light, peach/pink/nude. I was fearful this would look elderly and the color of a band aid but it does not. I adore this Sally Hansen range and have yet to be disappointed so when I went looking for a very unobtrusive feminine neutral pink that would visually elongate my hand this met my criteria. I have minimal ridges in my nails so slight buffing enabled this color to apply evenly. I usually apply 2 coats but with this I applied 3 and the look is pure joy. This is the perfect color for a professional office environment or for those who want a polished yet low maintenance nail color that is a leap up from clear polish. This will be a staple in my stash.

I found these for £1 on the cosmetics fairy website, so great value.

I wouldn’t have paid more though...as I have had a few problems with these.

On the plus side they are fairly long lasting (as long as you don’t hesitate to apply them after you open the packet) and there is a generous amount of gel top coat in the bottle provided. The pack also contains a nail buffer, cuticle stick and nail cleansing wipes, so you are well provided for. You do need a small pair of scissors to trim the stickers down, and of course a lamp. They suggest you use their mini led lamp, I use the monster one I bought on the cheap from amazon, because I’m not gonna cure one nail at a time.. really?!

The drawbacks are:
They’re extremely fiddley to use, I would probably want to enlist the help of a Professional nail technician in future.

Once the packet is opened these start to DRY out, there is no saving the remaining pieces of sticker for future manicures- I’ve tried and they become brittle, rip when you apply them to the nail and just don’t last as long. Plus you get an odd number of weirdly sized stickers in each pack anyway, so they REALLY don’t want you to get more than a single use out of one packet..OK then.

Having said all this I have managed to do lovely, long lasting manicures on my mum with these. So I think I’ll save the remaining packets for my quality nail time with her!

Watch as I grapple with the remnants of one packet to try my doing my own nails in this video:

Polishes -Sally Hansen -Insta-Dri Nail Polish in Sugar Poppy

Hmm.... only because i am extremely lazy and ontop of that i have no patience, do i find this product OK.

It lives up to the claim that it is insta-dry, but it also insta-chips and peels within less than 24 hours! I didnt expect much, and the colour pay off was nice, but what is the point if you have to re-do your nails every damn day.

Nice in a pinch for a day or a few hours, nothing more than that.

Polishes -Sally Hansen -Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish

I've bought it in color 470 Red My Lips.

Pros:
- the color is beautiful cool tone classic red;
- great wide oval brush for those who do not have tiny nails;
- it stays put really well. It didn't chip on me for 5 days, just wore off the edges.

Cons:
- I thought it's a great affordable alternative to Butter London nail polishes, but unlike those Sally Hansen stained my nails. One step manicure polish, in my opinion, shouldn't be leaving nails stained;
- the brush is not well cut, some bristles are the tiny bit longer than other;
- you must wait for polish to dry before applying the second coat, otherwise polish will slightly drag and you'll need to apply a really thick layer to cover that.


Won't buy it again.
