I bought this on sale together with Angel Wings from the Complete Salon series. I absolutely love the color. It is a rich and creamy pearly chocolate color where one coat is almost opaque. The fomula is smooth and application is quite easy as any other Sally Hansen polish.

I have some great experience with the Xtreme and Complete Salon lines so naturally I have some expectations to this one. I have been using the regular nailgrowth treatment and serum for a few months now. I have to say those two products completely changed the conditions of my nails.

I was not really expecting any growth effect from this polish and yet, I am still a bit disappointed about it. The tips start to show signs of wear the very next day without too much of use from my end. My nails are not long and all I did are some moderate house work. This is far shorter than the average of other polishes I have.

As much as I love the color, I am not satisfied with its staying power. I hope I could find something similar but with a much longer lasting power in the future.

This is my 1st purchase from the NailGrowth Miracle line. I bought Forbidden Fudge for the color - out of all the brown nailpolish shades I've been gushing over lately, this 1 is tops. It is deep, rich, dark-chocolatey goodness! Initially I passed this up b/c I worried the color might look cockroach-y on my pale skin (& I despise those nasty little things), but the other day I decided to try this on a nail & it looked wonderful. The color's not flat or bland, but very rich, deep & shimmery especially in the sun, but you don't need sunlight to enjoy the beauty of this color. The way you see it in the bottle is how it looks on the nails.

It's mostly opaque on application but requires 2 coats for best coverage. Dries fairly shiny too, which is unusual for shimmer polish, & looks even richer after topcoat. While I absolutely despise most of the really wide brushes in some nailpolishes (Sally Hansen Insta-Dri is impossible for me to use), I found it surprisingly easy to apply polish neatly on my little nails using this extra-wide brush, probably b/c it's tapered curved tip allows good application controll for the contoured cuticle area. The formula is creamy so that no nails became flooded @ the cuticle, but not thick or goopy (the way Insta-Dri can be), just smooth & rich.

Dries fast & didn't smudge or bubble (I use a fast-dry topcoat anyway). The mouth of the bottle could stand to be wider since it's very narrow for the brush width - I have to be especially attentive when using this bottle. But it's a hit w/me, I love the color & the quality, & will look into other color options from this NailGrowth Miracle line (also love the Xtreme Wear line - great bottle/brush/formula/colors).

One day at Target I thought to myself while browsing the nail polish section , I should get an expensive nail polish, I deserve it and I need it. Considering i'm always buying cheap nail polishes that always chip and doesn't really work well with my current job considering I do a lot of hands on work...

I bought this at 5.96 about 6 dollars and thought yep won't have any chipping for at least a weeek. Lmao I was wrong. This is no better than a 99 cent nail polish. It chips just as harsh and easily as a cheaper nail polish. The only positive about this nail polish was the brush applicator that made it super easy to apply, but that wasn't what I was looking for plus you should get more than that for a 6 dollar nail polish are you kidding me?

I thought Sally Hansen was a high end brand for nail polishes but NO. I'm taking this back tomorrow at Target. Piece of cr*p.
