Hi everyone! I hope you are all well as always! Today's review is of a product I have used over the last half term. One that my wonderful fiancé treated me to as he knows how obsessed I am with my nail varnish! As some of my avid readers and followers may know; I love doing my nails however I can only paint them when I am off from work. This is mostly due to not having the time! I really hate having to re-paint chipped nail polish so finding a good base and top coat is crucial.
Sally Hansen - Base & Top Coat
Sally Hansen is a nail polish brand name that you can trust. I have yet to try a nail polish of theirs that I don't like. The formula is always fantastic, they don't chip quickly, the brush is fantastic... the list goes on and on! However this was my first time trying out one from their base/top coat range. I picked up this polish simply because it is a two in one product. Less fuss! The packaging is very sleek and you get a decent amount of product. 0.45 FL OZ to be exact!
The wand looks thin however when you apply it to the nail the bristles fan out leaving a lovely, even coat on the nail. Exactly what you want. So the real test... could I see a difference in how long my nail polish lasted? Yes! Recently I reviewed a Poundland magnetic nail polish - Filthy Gorgeous which you can check out here. Originally I applied that polish with a cheap £1 MUA clear coat polish. Needless to say the polish lasted a day... if that before literally coming completely off the nail. I repainted my nails again; only this time with the Sally Hansen Double Duty nail polish as my base and top coat. Seven days later the polish was still looking fantastic. By this time I had to take off the polish for work but it could have lasted tons longer! The shine is also beautiful from this polish!
Overall I love this base and top coat. I can't wait to try it more in the summer! Have you tried any Sally Hansen nail polishes? What is your favourite base or top coat? Let me know in the comments!
