These spring days and beautiful Sally Hansen shades have rekindled my love for french manicures and classic, glossy nails! These are perfect summer shades, delicate, milky, nails-but-better shades that make
a tan pop. An assortment of sheer and opaque shades means you can try all kinds of dreamy looks!
Just pair with lace, boheme and Mediterranean sunshine ahhh. After application they lasted about four to five days of backpacking in the heat before starting to chip, which is amazing for me. They are easy to apply, with a generous sized brush and dry fairly quickly with one or two coats. Although the opaque Miracle Gel formula performed somewhat streakier, this is easily remedied by applying a second coat.
From left to right: two coats of Shell We Dance? a pearlescent buttery beige pink, one coat of Shell We Dance?, two coats of Arm Candy, a beautiful pearl pink, like the underside of a conch shell, then one coat of Arm Candy and two coats of Miracle Gel Creme de la Creme, an opaque, off white-pink hue.
This is my favourite nail formula so far, even topping Barry M for me! They are quite similar, though these shades last longer, feel more luxurious and don’t threaten to smudge as much when a second (or third!) coat is applied. The packaging is so pretty too, I love the silver tops
see how I justify buying more.
They are cruelty free by Sally Hansen’s own admission and the vanilla shades are my favourite so far! Do you keep nails free or painted in the warm months? I love how once you find that one nail shade that means a lot to you – where you can’t stop looking at your hands when snapping open a drink bottle or reaching for a shellfish in the market haha – there is no going back! It almost becomes a part of you ♡
