Since I started wearing Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in Iced Coffee, multiple people either been a) trying to steal it from me (I’m looking at you, Anum); or b) rushing out to buy one of their own. I don’t blame them — I think it’s the perfect taupe. It’s a muted color, but is a noticeably sophisticated one at that.
Even more, I’m falling for their Complete Salon Manicure line pretty hard. The thick brush takes some getting used to, but it makes for a quick application WITH an equally quick-drying formula. There have already been so many times where I’m just running out the door and I can just apply one fast coat and it will stay put and look shiny and neat. Not sure how much this applies for the darker colors, but you can definitely get away with it for these lighter ones. The nail polishes in the line have an all-encompassing formula: it’s a base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, shiny color and top coat in one.
Now, the bad news: when I’ve been told that people are having trouble finding this exact shade at their local drugstore, I finally found out that it’s because this particular shade was actually part of the Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Spring 2010 limited edition nail color collection. The good news is, they have a similar shade in their new Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Fall 2010 Nail Color called Evening Fog:
A staple in their line which is also similar is Café Au Lait
They are available at mass drugstore retailers for $7 each!
