It’s no secret I’m not a fan of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line. I had a bad experience with Fairy Teal, and an average experience with Gray by Gray. For a polish that claims to include all 5 manicure steps in one bottle (base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color and top coat) and costs anywhere from $7 to $10 for a drugstore brand, I expect alot.
So after applying Plum Luck I decided I’d give this line another chance to impress me and do a wear test. Per the bottle instructions I did not use a top coat (I did use a base coat due to the smurf nails incident with Fairy Teal).
I change my manicure almost everyday. Sometimes I’ll go two days. But never, NEVER do I wear a polish for 4 days. I can’t stand tip wear and I absolutely hate chipped nail polish. So that is the mindset I’m coming from.
The wear from this polish is probably one of the better things about it. My nails still looked perfect at the end of day 2. Most of the time when I wear a polish 2 days I have small chips and/or significant tip wear. By the end of day 3 I did want to change out my manicure. I had tip wear and some chipping.
I give credit where credit is due. This polish wears extremely well. I did touch ups on my right hand (non picture hand) on day 4 and could have easily worn it another day.
Does this change my opinion of the Complete Salon Manicure line? Yes and no. I’m glad to know this polish has at least one good quality that somewhat justifies the ridiculous price tag. For someone like me who likes to change their polish often, this polish still isn’t worth the price.
