Beauty | Manicure Monday: Pastel and sorbet nail art with Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color + Care (A Review)

I’ve been asked quite a few times by quite a few people if I ever rock “normal” nails so I decided to do something simpler (for me) for Manicure Monday. I decided to use my new Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color + Care nail polishes in muted, ladylike hues and jazzed up the pale pink and mint green polishes with some random designs done with my new nail art pen.

For this manicure I used Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color + Care in Sea (07) and Sorbet (08) and a white nail art pen that I bought on Ebay. The Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color + Care collection is made up of eight shades of creamy, sheer polishes with a slight pearlescent finish that boast the ability to hide ridges and “imperfections with a breathable porcelain-smooth finish” and promises stronger, healthier nails due to a formula that contains ginseng, camelia oil and lotus and allows 20% more oxygen to reach the nails.

The polish is quite sheer (I applied three coats of each polish to achieve an opaque look) and the ridge filling claims are true. A few weeks ago I had a run in with a hand blender that left some deep gouges on my fingernail and the Sally Hansen polish filled the ridges and left me with a smooth, even finish. I noticed quite a few air bubbles, which is a rarity for me, but I’ll chalk that up to applying my nails near an open window.
