(Nail) Polish Porn: Sally Hansen “I Lilac You”

This is easily my favorite nail polish post to date because (1) it features my ABSOLUTE favorite nail polish brand, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure and (2) this polish is unexpectedly gorgeous. I honestly do not know what came over me when I purchased this color because I’m not a pastel polish picker; I’m more of a red and neutral kinda girl. But I gravitated to this polish as a perfect pop of color for Spring.Sally Hansen I Lilac You

This bad boy (or girl?) only took two coats (I probably could get by with just one) for complete opacity. Although this milky formula boasts a manicure in a bottle, I still used a top coat because I believe it’s necessary. This image is not in direct sunlight, but you can tell that it’s not all that “shiny”; it’s a bit more on the matte side of things even with the topcoat. I don’t mind that one bit, in fact, I quite like matte nails. These nails lasted for a solid week and looked just as fresh and chip-free at the end of the week. I can’t quite form the words, but just understand that this polish is gorgeous and this is my sorry attempt to sing its praises. Sally Hansen polishes are available at drugstores and Ulta at a very affordable price (around $8) similar to Essie and OPI.

Lastly, if you have not tried the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure formula, give it a try. There are a few different formulas in the Sally Hansen range; I’ve tried and like them all, but this one is my favorite. I’ll probably do “my top nail polish brands” post in the near future and SPOILER ALERT this one is at the top.

Have you tried any of the Sally Hansen nail polishes before? What’s your favorite nail polish brand?

      • YES! I sometimes secretly miss my younger tanning days. And by tanning… I mean having any sort (even the faintest) of tan line :)

        Can we trade lives/countries too? I think I could do the Greece thing for a little while… :)!

      • Sure. I am (most) certain I could live the “American Dream” for a bit, too ;)

        Seriously though, if you ever make it to Greece do let me know. I’d love to show you around :)

      • “YES, You can!”… live the American dream! We’ve got lots of room – come on over.

        And ummmm, YES. You make offers like that and I will take you up on it! Maybe when I finish grad school (aka never) I will say “screw it!” and come backpack all over Europe. I’ll keep you posted. :)
