Sally Hansen & Influenster Complete Salon Manicure #review @influensterVOX

I have always loved Sally Hansen Nail Colors and I favor pinks, and even though I am thirty ( I always wanna say 'flirty and thriving'.. you know: from 13 Going on 30" movie? )

I have to admit, I do still love a good glitter polish!  I can't help myself. The colors Sally Hansen selected for me are a little too mature for me, but I used the red on me, and doctored it to "my style" though I might've had a few glasses of wine before I attempted to even do my nails. And I am NOT the best person to ask to do anyone's nails- much less my own. So, don't judge me! 

Anyway, without further ado, here are my pics (throughout post) and my opinion is that this nail polish is superior in every way to do the others dozens of polishes that I have/own. 

It doesn't get gunky. The consistency is right, and it spreads evenly, stays glossy, dries fast.. The best part is the wide flat brush's unique shape lends to a one swipe coat going on evenly without sitting having to retouch it, until you make it gunky and streaky. The less coats, the smoother for the untaught hand that polishes hands (like Moi!) Read more tips and opinions of this polish on Influenster now. Plus + find other reviews from trusted Mommy Bloggers like me on all your favorite other brands too!
