I’m always looking for a perfect “Nude” nail. Something to enhance & brighten my natural nails without looking like polish for those low maintenance kind of days (or weeks). Usually, I don’t stray from certain polish brands (I’m kind of a snob) like Julep, OPI and Essie, but when I spotted this Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Nail Polish on sale at Rexall last week, I had to give it a try.

 

One of the most important reasons I picked this polish up is I recently had Gel Nails applied (rookie mistake!) and couldn’t stand them so I filed them off myself. Yep, you heard me right, now just imagine what my nails looked like – splitting, brittle, peeling and sore! So, recently I’ve been applying every nail treatment I have in my arsenal to get these talons back to normal!

THE CLAIMS

Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect not only gives you perfectly smooth and shimmery colour, it also strengthens nails and lets them breath! It’s enhanced with ginseng, camelia oil and lotus to promote stronger, healthier nails. It applies super smoothly and covers ridges and bumps really well. It also lets 20% more oxygen to reach the nail while being chip free for days! These come in 8 very sheer shades, I chose Linen, a really light peachy/pink – almost the exact shade of my nail bed but with a healthy “glow” – aka, shimmer.

 

THE RESULTS

I really like this polish! I love that Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect has added benefits without the added price tag. There are quite a few “care” products that provide a bit of shimmer & colour but can cost a lot (Essie, OPI and Julep have options). I love that these also come in 8 different shades, not just one. This applied super smoothly, dried quickly and didn’t chip for days! If you’re looking for something subtle to correct ridges, strengthen nails and provide a pretty sheer shimmer but don’t want a high price tag, I would highly recommend these polishes! I’m on my way to pick up a few more today as the price point is great and they are just so pretty (especially for spring)!
