Pure. nail polishes. Yes, it includes all the essentials for the perfect manicure!
The History of Sally Hansen
You definitely would have heard of Sally Hansen. A staple in drugstores, where its numerous nail and body products, in its iconic orange packaging, line the shelves. You might even own a few of its products! Unlike Betty Crocker, Sally Hansen did exist. And yes, she’s the eponymous founder of this iconic brand! It’s been around since 1957, and has been going strong ever since.
The reason behind the brand’s longstanding success? For one, it takes customer feedback seriously! That’s right, customer complaints don’t fall on deaf ears. As a result, Sally Hansen has continuously researched and improved their offerings throughout the years, perfecting their formulas. Of course, this doesn’t mean it’s stopped in its quest for perfection, which continues even to this day.
Fun fact: you may be surprised to learn that their best-selling product isn’t, in fact, a nail product but its Airbrush Legs, which guarantee perfect legs in an instant!
Five Steps to the Perfect At-Home Manicure
With Sally Hansen, the perfect at-home manicure isn’t too far off. Follow these five easy steps to get your nails prepped and pretty in no time!
Run some nail polish remover over your nails. This helps to ensure that all the oils and dirt that may get in the way of a smooth like butter application are removed. Sally Hansen Moisturising Nail Polish Remover not only preps the nails, but also nourishes them with essential nutrients to get them looking their best.
Remove excess cuticles. Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover is a revolutionary cuticle remover which helps cut manicure time in half. Simply apply a thin layer to cuticles and under nail tips, and wait 15 seconds before scraping off with a nail manicure stick. Formulated with aloe and chamomile, the Instant Cuticle Remover is a gentle yet effective treatment.
After washing and drying your fingers, apply Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment. This treatment works as both a base coat and top coat, while helping to strengthen, moisturise and brighten nails at the same time. Talk about an overachiever!
Choose and apply your colour. The kit features two polishes, Soft Plum and Cherry Amore, from newly launched Good. Kind. Pure. range, which consists of 100% plant-based, vegan nail polishes. Formulated only with the cleanest, safest ingredients, you can be sure your nails will be well taken care of at home.
The trick to getting a smooth application of polish is in the brush, and you can trust that these certainly apply like a dream. You wouldn’t know the difference in them being vegan — these are high-quality polishes either way! Repeat the process after the first coat has dried.
“100% PLANT-BASED, VEGAN NAIL POLISHES, FORMULATED ONLY WITH THE CLEANEST, SAFEST INGREDIENTS.”
Add another layer of Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment to seal it in and increase longevity of your manicure. Voila! You’re done.
We were given the chance to try Sally Hansen’s At-Home Self-Care Kit, and boy, were we impressed.
Having all the essentials in one box was really handy, especially if it’s your first time doing an at-home mani-pedi.
The secret to a great DIY manicure really does lie in the brush, as the brand has mentioned.
The polishes apply evenly to the nail in a thick, glossy coat and spread easily.
The texture is neither too thick or runny, making it just breezy to apply.
Nonetheless, whether you’re an expert at doing your nails at home or fumble through the process, Sally Hansen’s At-Home Self-Care Kit will help you get salon-worthy nails, without the hefty price tag.
