About a month ago, I received an e-mail from Influenster saying that I had been selected for the Sally Hansen VoxBox! This was going to be my first Voxbox and I was super excited to receive it. Soon after receiving my e-mail (like, the day after!), I received the box and it contained 3 Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Polishes. These three polishes included:
- Pat on the Black (a dark deep purple crelly-ish colour)
- Red My Lips (a basic red colour)
- Jaded (an seafoam green/blue colour)
Overall, these polishes worked well, especially for being a drugstore brand polish. Pat on the Black and Red my Lips were both two coaters, however, Jaded took more like 4-5 coats to become an opaque colour. What I like about these Sally Hansen colours is that they have 7 benefits in one bottle, and I really enjoy the shape of the brush, I find that it’s easier to apply with this new brush.
Here’s some info directly from the Sally Hansen website providing some information on the polishes:
I find that these polishes do have quite the shine to them, but I wouldn’t call it a “gel shine” that Sally Hansen claims they have. However, for being a drugstore brand, they really do a good job. I can definitely pull these off without a topcoat and still have the look of a top coat. I personally chose to put a top coat on some fingers to prevent chips and tip wear. I left some fingers without top coat to see (Note: it did chip after day 2 without topcoat and 3 days with topcoat). I enjoyed that these polishes dried relatively fast and they were dry to the touch after a maximum of five minutes – so this would make them good if you want to do a quick manicure and you don’t have much time to get them done.
Here’s a cute mani I did with “Jaded”. Please excuse the mess, I’m bad at this, LOL
