A good nail polish is one of life’s simple pleasures. In fact, during times of financial crisis it’s common for nail polish sales to actually increase. It’s an easy and affordable way to indulge and express ourselves, which is why we all probably own more nail polishes than the digits on our fingers and toes combined.
And while it’s all well and good to boast a nail polish wardrobe that ranges from nude and neutral to white and pastel and all the way to moody navy and black, new generation nail polish technology is proving that it’s just as important to look for formulas that are more than just a nice shade.
And that’s where Sally Hansen and the Color Therapy nail polish range comes in.
Combining the benefits of colour and care in a three step system (colour, top coat, and nail and cuticle oil), the new Sally Hansen Color Therapy range is not only one worth knowing about, but one that deserves some coveted space in your beauty cupboard, and here’s why:
#1 / It’s more than just a nail colour
So we’ve already mentioned that the Color Therapy range will care for your nails, but how? Both the Sally Hansen Color Therapy Nail Polish and Top Coat contain a patented micro-delivery system that coats nails in an argan oil-enriched formula, resulting in intensive nourishment and instant moisture for healthier-looking nails. And because the Color Therapy system doesn’t involve a base coat step, the oil complex comes into direct contact with your natural nail, delivering the full benefits of nourishing ingredients: argan, acai, and evening primrose oil.
#2 / The colours are amazing
Not that we should ever judge a book by its cover, but the nail polish shades in the Sally Hansen Color Therapy range are gorgeous. There are currently 14 shades available in Australia, with more colours to come. We love Blushed Petal for a subtle everyday colour, but we think Ohm My Magenta and Mud Mask will be great additions to your nail polish kit for autumn.
#3 / The top coat leaves an ultra-glossy finish
You know how some top coats don’t really do much to up the wow factor of your manicure? The Sally Hansen Color Therapy Top Coat not only extends the wear and prevents your manicure from fading, it also gives the nail polish a high-shine, glossy finish.
#4 / Your cuticles are just as important as your nails
What separates this new Sally Hansen nail polish range from so many others is that it acknowledges the importance of the health of your cuticles by including a Nail & Cuticle Oil in the mix. Applied after your nail polish colour and top coat, the argan oil formula will nourish, restore and rejuvenate both your nails and cuticles.
