Sick of the cute from far away but less than satisfactory orange manicure I got this weekend, I painted my nails with this dramatic polish last night. Sally Hansen knows nails, so it is not a big surprise to me that the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish is high quality, but I really loved the brush and the formula. The color is called “Midnight in NY”, a black with subtle multicolored sparkles. I don’t normally like sparkly polish, but this one is cute and very very subtle. It just helps make it not look like plain old black. Super fun and fashion-y.
Not to mention, Alexa Chung wore this shade at the Met Ball early this month. See this close up of here nails – Awesome! Her manicure was done by celebrity nail expert Tracylee who has more than 15 years of experience as an educator and trendsetter in the nail industry.Tracylee is a sought-after manicurist backstage at fashion shows, on set at magazine shoots, and on hand—literally—for her celebrity clients.
“For me, nails aren’t just the finishing touch to an outfit—they’re a statement unto themselves,” says Tracylee. “I wanted to create nails looks that brought the complete ensemble to life in an eye-catching way.”
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is an all-in-one formula that combines the 5 steps of a manicure—a base coat, a strengthener, a growth treatment, rich color and a top coat—in a single polish. They costs $7.99, and are available at Ulta, Walgreens, and Drugstore.com.
