Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Red Zin

So, the first of the four colours I chose to go with was Red Zin,  a beautiful luscious claret colour, just perfect for the season.

The colour applied really well, and although I loved the berry shade it gave me from just one coat, it needed the two coats to achieve the deep wine colour that you see in the bottle.

The brush was very different to the ones I am used to with OPI, Essie, Leighton Denny and others.  It was much flatter, rather like the Rimmel and Dior ones.  While it took me some time to get used to it, it does make application faster, as it covers a wider portion of the nail in one fell swoop.

The formulation promised five steps in one: base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, colour and top coat.  I can’t comment yet on the strengthener and growth treatment elements, as it’s only been on my nails  for a few days.  But my nails don’t feel any worse for not wearing a separate base and top coat, and the colour is true the bottle.  It’s certainly held on well – these photographs were taken after three days of wear.

What do you think? Is this one you’ll try out?
