This month I received a bottle of Pat on the Black nail polish complimentary from Influenster via their Sally Hansen Vox Box (along with two other colors I will post about separately). There are a couple things I like about the Complete Salon Manicure lacquers. First the large bottle size, it’s easy to hold and the name is right on top of the cap so I don’t have to go hunting for it. The large brush is king, it makes getting polish on before it starts to dry quick and easy. It has a nice rounded tip to give me more control near the cuticle. I am disappointed however that they changed the black rubber band to just plastic — the black rubber makes it significantly easier to open the bottles.
I was able to get opaque color with two coats and it dried really fast — no smudges. It’s super shiny too. I love how the color looks like deep purple-plum in some light and almost black in others. It’s a fun shade.
I had some tiny chips two days later but they were super easy to touch up without telling — I put a little dab on, let it dry, then put a thin coat over the whole nail.
I wore Pat on the Black for four days before I switched it up with some Copper Penny (I know I am addicted to this glitter). You can see the nail edges were starting to wear a bit.
Sally Hansen’s line of Complete Salon Manicure is available in 49 nail polish colors from most drug stores at prices ranging from 7.99 to 10.99. This line boasts seven benefits in one bottle: base coat (I used a base coat anyway because it is a dark color and I am paranoid), strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, chip resistant, and gel shine finish.
