#CSMTKO Sally Hansen Nail Polish Complete Salon Manicure

I was sent:

  • “Red my Lips” which is a bright red basic red
  • “Pat on the Black” which is a rich black with undertones of insanely deep dark purple
  • “Jaded” which is a basic mint
All three are creams. No shimmer. No glitter. And that’s just it. The shades are super basic. They’re good but they’re verging on boring. But I think that was the point of the colors that they chose to send us, there’s nothing outright to dislike about them.

I went through the colors listed online and there aren’t a lot I’m super excited about. OR they are a match for something I already own like Jungle Gem which is a deep teal.

“Please sea me” or “Water Color”  are the most appealing of the available shades to me.  But both seems like a summertime color … and we’re not yet at summer. 🙂 The red I’ll probably wear around Christmas.

The quality is good and the nail polishes do last well though. I just wish they were a little more adventurous in their colors.

The good news is that these are “3 Free” when it comes to ingredients

Zoya “Lotus” with Essie “A Cut Above” and Sally Hansen Crackle polish in “Antique Gold”

I DO think that Zoya’s “Lotus” looks better with a top coat. Particularly Essie’s “A Cut Above” pink glittery top coat would be my choice.

It draws attention to some of the pink undertones that Lotus has but are hard to see. I still feel like this isn’t a very spring color for some reason. Maybe because I’m personally interested in pastels, golds and neons for spring. :/ 🙂
