It’s obvious that not all nailpolish is created equal, however, I do believe that with proper nail care, a good base & top coat, and the right application – you can achieve a flawless manicure with any polish under the sun. With that said, I do play favorites sometimes. 😉 I wanted to share what I consider to be not only one of the best drugstore polishes, but one of the best of all time.
If you’ve followed this blog or my Instagram account for a while, you may already have an inkling as to which line of polish I’m talking about…
They have a few different collections; the Color Therapy, Miracle Gel, Complete Salon Manicure, Insta-Dri, and Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear – honestly, they’re all pretty wonderful, but the first three are my absolute favorites and I’ll tell you why.
- The brush. The brush of the Color Therapy, Miracle Gel, and Complete Salon Manicure is wide! Personally, I love a wide polish brush. I find it much easier to work with and the best tool for achieving a perfectly even mani!
- The color selection. The shade options are pretty extensive and continuously expanding. They are always adding new polishes – all of which are unique and unlike anything else I see on the shelves.
- The long wear. This is a big one! The polish will last you, they all have impressive wear time, but I actually find the Complete Salon Manicure to be the best. Even over the Miracle Gel! I’ve got to give this formula the credit it deserves. It’s a must try!
- The shelf life. I’m not positive what the appropriate lifetime for a bottle of polish is (I’ve heard 2 years) but my Sally polishes are the only ones that will last me and wear just as well as the day I got them (I’ve had some bottles for 8 years! TMI?!) It’s very rare for a polish to last that long without the formula getting too thick or gooey. Major props to Sally Hansen for making a really incredible product.
