The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line was the first "expensive" nail polish I bought. To be fair, they really are quite expensive for drugstore polish!
I distinctly remember thinking "OMG this is expensive!!" when I bought 3 on sale for $5 each at Walgreens. Ahh... the good old days.
The brush is really huge, but manageable. The really downer with these is the paddle-like stem, which makes it IMPOSSIBLE to wipe off excess polish at the neck of the bottle because flat + round does not work!
Sally Hansen Fedora - This is my hands-down favourite SH CSM. I just love the way it looks! It is a dupe for $OPI Under My Trenchcoat.
Sally Hansen Sequin Scandal - This came out in the same collection as Fedora. I do like it, but wish it was a bit more sparkly. I hear it is very close to ChG Wagon Trail.
By the way, one of my favourite ways to wear ChG Zombie Zest is over this polish. Take a look:
I swear, if that layering combo could be achieved in one polish, it would EASILY be in my top 10! *swoon*
Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure - Infamous little sucker. I remember finding the display and seeing both HTs gone. I didn't find this until months after it came out, in a random little bin at Kmart (of all places!). I wore it over everything for a week before promptly never looking at it again. Sounds familiar, right? *sideways glance to OPI Black Shatter*
Sally Hansen Gilty Pleasure - One of those first 3 CSM polishes I bought. I was really excited about it and almost bought Petal to the Metal in its place. I do like this pale gold shade, but now that my stash is much larger, I've come to somewhat hate the brushstroke appearance, as mild as it is.
Sally Hansen Fairy Teal - (first eww cuticles!!) I loved this shade like crazy until I got Illamasqua Muse. They were too close (but definitely NOT dupes) to keep both... especially since this SH one stains! Now that I have a better handle on basecoats, I wonder if it would still stain?
Sally Hansen Pink Slip - One word: ICK. DO NOT WANT. So so bad. Maybe my application is better now, but I already gave this one away to a friend who prefers to wear things sheer. I think Essie Ballet Slippers is a much better alternative to this monstrosity.
Even though I hate the brush/stem, I still have some CSM lemmings... such as Gray by Gray.
Your turn: any fav or hated Complete Salon Manicures?
