Oh hey guys it's that special time of the week where we explore and discover polishes that are found for $5 or less! So this one isn't a stranger to Claw of Cthulhu, but is to Cheap Polish Tuesday. Today I have a Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure which I found in the discount bin at Shoppers Drug Mart for $5. Still a little on the pricey end but definitely not $9, which is the usual price for these ones.
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure White Out is a white creme, that is actually very surprisingly a limited edition polish. I was hoping to find something that could keep up with OPI White Alpine but unfortunately this is not it. While it still applies OK, it still requires two and an extra ha;f coat for coverage of the patches. It applies smoothly, but still tends to be a bit patchy. Here's my swatch of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure White Out in two and a half coats with no top coat:
And for funsies and unfortunately this did not go as planned - I sponged some OPI You Don't Know Jacques! on my tips. I guess I underestimated the density of the formula and instead of looking like a subtle grey gradient, it looked like I dipped my finger tips in dirt. LOL SO BAD. So I went along with it and even applied some OPI Matte Top Coat:
It was so bad I had to remove it right away. I didn't bother keeping this one for longer than 5 minutes. Yikes.
What do you consider to be your ideal white polish? Would two and a half coats suffice for you? Have you ever created some serious disaster nail art that you had to remove ASAP?
