Sally Hansen has a range of great nail products and they never fail to amaze me. I have a few shades of polishes from this brand now and one of my favourites is a super light nude. Although its super light, its not opaque at all, so i only ever need to apply one or two coats, which is a nice surprise as a lot of polishes can be opaque and require quite a few coats. I find that this polish stays on for a long time, and very rarely chips.

Sally Hansen Colour Therapy Nail Polish Review
Where to buy?
Introducing new Color Therapy, gorgeous colour that cares while you wear! The patented argan oil formula fuses intensive nourishmentand instant moisture for healthy looking nails.
I love the colour range available in the Colour Therapy nail polish range. Sally Hansen polishes have a good sized brush, making for an even and easy application. For most colours, I apply two coats, although recently I purchased a deep shimmery purple, which benefits from 3 coats to get an even colour.
I have acrylic nails, so can’t comment on the Therapy part of the polish, but they certainly don’t damage or stain my acrylics at all.
I have this nail polish in three colours; rose quartz (a light sheer pink) and re-nude (actually is nude) which are both natural colours, and powder room, a metallic/ silvery blush pink colour.
The polish itself is light and smooth. It feels like wearing a coat of nail treatment, but with colour. It doesn’t feel hard on the nails at all. It’s a nice and gentle formula for our delicate nails. This nice and thin formula of does prevent the polish from cracking and chipping, which most polishes do. It comes off cleanly with nail polish remover. The coverage depends on your colour. Rosy quartz is so sheer that you probably prefer to have three coats for a bit of colour. Whereas i only need two coats to cover for re-nude and powder room.
To ensure longer lasting wear, and to prevent your polish wiping off like clumps of dry glue, you pretty much should follow the instructions carefully. Only do one thin coat at a time, and ensure each layer is completely dried before layering the next one. When i didn’t dry the polish properly, or when i applied a layer too thick, the polish didn’t last long at all; I ended up with a few smudges, and dent marks on my nails after doing some simple house work.
Not sure if i just happened to get an applicator with a faulty brush, but i noticed the shape of the brush for the re-nude polish was slightly different to the other two. It felt as if there were less bristles, and it was more rounded, rather than flat. The brush doesn’t fan out upon application like the other two colours, so was less smooth during application, revealing more of the painted brush lines from the bristles. For someone who doesn’t paint nails often, It was a little more challenging to work with this colour, as i had to use more strokes, while trying to keep it thin and even.
Despite this brush difference, there’s plenty of colours to choose from; from nudes to bolds. Although It still does have that nail polish scent, it’s definitely a good polish for beginners to start with, or for those who wants to paint their nails with a more nourishing formula.
I picked up this Beauty from the last Beauty Vault . Many times I have gone into Farmers and thought of buying this nail polish.
The packaging comes in a clear bottle. Labelling is gold . I got this dark Navy Blue colour. The consistency of this nail colour is a medium to thick thickness. Has this nail polish scent like chemicals.
I find it dries after five to ten minutes application. Two layers of nail polish is the perfect amount of layering . After removal my nails aren’t tinted . They feel good not dry.
I was impressed with the formula of this nail polish. I can see myself purchasing more colours in the near future.
I'm a nail junkie, it is a weakness and I mainly purchase all my polishes from indie brands as they have the best formulas to last on my nails, however brands found in stores draw me in with the promise of chip proof, vibrant colours most have disappointed me greatly but then Sally Hansen has a good formula that is the best of what is on offer.
There is a great shade range in the colour therapy collection, from pastels to neons, everyday casual and glam everyday darks. Easily applied for even coverage, builds up to fully opaque in as little as 2 coats, offers a great wear time of just under a week if not being to stressful on the nails, but on average they do start to chip on day 4/5 and for me that is the time I fully remove the polish.
Kept out of direct sunlight they hold their colour and usability for a very long period of time and even after a year of none use I can still open a bottle and it will apply like the first day I purchased it.
Unwined is the colour of the polish that I was sent from my beauty box.so impressed with this polish love the colour and the texture. This polish will last without chipping for ten days. Works better with two coats applied once the first coat is dried.
I love wearing nail polish, and I was eager to try these polishes after seeing this new range profiled on Beauty Review.
I purchased these polishes in two colours: Therapewter, and Powder Room. They are a sparkly glittery green, and a pearly pale pink respectively.
I have worn both colours a few times and I am very pleased with the result. These are very hard-wearing nail polishes. They chip much less easily than all other polishes I have tried. They lasted on my nails for about 7 days before the first real signs of wear showed. That was with two coats on.
The polish settles down into a nice smooth finish and is very easy to apply. I love the broad, flat brush the polish comes with. The bottles are made of solid glass, and are in a round shape that gradually changes to a square. The brush handle is rose gold in colour and is slightly tapered, making them lovely to hold.
My nails are not damaged by this polish. Some polishes can be quite hard on nails, and a bit abrasive, but this polish feels kind to nails. My nails are quite weak, so it is important to me that they not be damaged any further. I haven't tried gel polish for that reason.
I am loving this polish so far. I think it is my new favourite polish.
Tips: Two coats seems to work best.
Oil - Nice consistency. As per instructions I applied on the cuticles as well as nails every day for a week and massaged them. After just a day I could feel a difference on my nails. They were looking healthier. After a week the nails were a nice pink with a healthy glow. I have a problem with my cuticles with the skin peeling off. While I was rubbing the oil, I had no more issues with skin peeling. But a day after I stopped applying the oil the skin started peeling off again.
Top Coat - It did what a top coat is supposed to do. Couldn't make out the difference between this top coat and the others I normally use. It worked and I would use it again.
Nail Polish - I got a couple of other friends to try the two shades along with me. They found the pink too thick but loved the silver. I liked both shades. Both lasted around 10 days with the top coat on.
Primrose & Proper - A nice shade for day time. Nice consistency. What I liked about it was, having an olive coloured skin, not every matt pink looks good on me. But this one did.
Therapewter - A nice shade for day and night. I loved this colour. Silver is my weakness and this one is just awesome. Both a single or double shades look good. I will definitely be buying this.
Nail Polishes - Rosy Quartz - this is a really nice light pink natural colour that would work well for doing a french nail, I just used it over the top of my natural nails and it actually made them look really nice and healthy without looking overdone. My nails weren't in the best condition when I used this colour, due to having damage from acrylics and gels but when I took it off after a week they were looking in a much better state. I did get some chipping/peeling but it wasn't too bad and it wasn't particularly noticeable either, probably due to the light colour.
Ohm My Magenta - wow this is a really bright magenta colour and definitely stands out. I kept noticing my nails all the time when I used this and it was a nice bold colour that got quite a few compliments! Again I did have some issues with it starting to peel off abit after about 4 days, even with the top coat and I had to take it off day 5 as it was starting to look abit horrible, but again I was quite pleased to see my nails looking noticeably healthier and in better condition.
Overall both are really lovely colours, I was also really impressed by the size of the products, they are quite big for a nail polish so I feel there is good value here. They also dry very quickly!
Tips: I would recommend making sure you have a really well aired space to do you nails because the smell of these polishes is super strong, enough to make you feel a bit faint. Definitely not a polish to use in your lounge in the evening unless you withstand these sorts of strong smells well. I sat next to an open window to use them and that worked fine.
Another epic win from the sally Hansen range. I got sent the colours ohm my magenta (deep red) and rosy quartz (light natural colour). I went with the deep red colour for the trial run. The brush is flat and again awesome to get an easy 1 dip coverage, love the brush shape. It took a good 5minutes to dry 1 coat ( I applied 2 coats as the bottle states to 1 hand and the other I applied 1 coat to test the bottles theory) After applications were dried the colour had a slight shine to it and they were looking fab! 2 coats lasted 1.5weeks before chipping and 1 coat lasted 3days before chipping. Without a topcoat I'd say this would be less time. Either way I felt like I had got them professionally done? They were looking that amazing! Today I will be rocking the rosy quartz x
Tips: Apply 2 coats and a topcoat to keep it lasting longer
