Sally Hans-NO: A Top Coat Review

This is my third and final top coat review. (Yay! Or not, maybe you’ve been enjoying these, reader, in which case, thank you.) Up next I’ll be reviewing hand creams, and then lip balms. My reviews will include products from companies like Burt’s Bees, EOS, and Caudalie. Stay posted!

I did my nails Saturday, December 7. I remember it being warm, but dry. I used Ruffian Nail Laquer in Hedge Fund, a product I discovered via Birchbox, and Zoya Nail Polish in Elisa. I tried to do three dots on each nail, failed, and each hand ended up having a different design.

(This photo is just of my left hand. The right had the dot design.) Anyway, after having mucked up my nail design I applied an extra coat of Sally Hansen Strengthening Nail Polish. Two coats, folks. They both dried pretty quickly, which was nice. The glossiness of the top coat was pretty average, too. However, those two coats didn’t due much. My nails were growing back and I had a full week at work typing at computer. So this is what happened:

Yeah… The results of this top coat by Sally Hansen were about as disappointing as this past year’s World Series. This nail polish was around $3 at Wal-Mart, but you can find it in most drugstores/pharmacies like Walgreens. In comparison to the top coat by O.P.I and Essie’s All In One 3-Way Glaze, this would be at the bottom of the list. The only top coat that performed like the 1976 Steelers offensive line was Essie’s, and I chock that up not to its expensive price but that it was a base coat as well.

Sorry for the post being short. I promise next week I’ll have a good review in store for y’all when I start the hand creams. My first hand cream review will be of Caudalie’s Hand and Nail cream.

Thanks for reading!

‘Til Friday,
