Sally Hansen has a new division of her line. This time it's called "Smooth & Perfect." Maybe you've heard about it, or seen some swatches? I hadn't, so I picked up the pastel blue because I'm a sucker for blues and wanted to try it out. :)
"Hides ridges with a breathable, porcelain smooth finish.
Promotes stronger, healthier looking nails.
Allows 20% more oxygen to reach nails.
What's my opinion? It definitely is streak free! Usually light blues are troublesome, but this formula was different. It went on smoothly with each coat. The first coat was just a light, even wash of sheer blue. Each subsequent coat went on easily and heightened the opacity just enough. Pictured is 3 thin coats.
Porcelain finish? Hopefully you can tell in the pictures, but it's a nice satin finish that is not entirely matte, but not entirely glossy. It's a nice middle ground. (Of course it makes it super glossy if you used a topcoat to speed dry time)
Does it hide ridges? I don't really know because I don't usually have a problem with ridges.
20% more oxygen to the nails? I don't know! How would you test this to even know? And is that a good thing? I guess.
Does it promote stronger, healthier nails? I don't know because I've only worn it once. And does that mean over time it strengthens them? Or that it gives the appearance of healthier nails? Because it hides the ridges? I don't know, but the polish is very nice!
Dry time is only fair. It seems to dry a good bit slower than other polishes. Easily solved with a quick drying topcoat like Seche Vite.
I found my bottle at Wal-Mart for $5.24 which I feel is equal to it's worth. I definitely like this polish and will keep it because of it being streak free! That makes it phenomenal in my opinion and far exceeds other light blues that might be a mess. I do wish the dry time were better though.....Pin It
