On my last trip to the States, I got my hands on the shade Mauve-olous from the Sally Hansen Royal Splendor Collection. Sally Hansen is an international nail care brand and they have a massive range of products; ranging from nail polishes, to top coats and even protective cuticle treatments. Prior to this, I’ve used probably just 2 nail polishes from Sally Hansen. But this is my first from their Gel Polish range.
The shades in the Sally Hansen Royal Splendor Collection are magnificent. They range from beautiful peaches, to subtle understated pinks, a few bright reds and a beautiful minty green. For me this range is perfect for spring summer, as they have probably all the shades that I would like to wear in these seasons.
I ended up buying the shade Mauve-olous from the Sally Hansen Royal Splendor Collection.
Here I’m wearing the shade Mauve-olous by itself – not top or bottom coat.
It comes in a glass bottle, with a black turn around cap which has NO UV LIGHT printed on it all over. A good thing is that the bottle has a rim at the end of the cap which shows the shade. It’s a great way to get a feel of what they shade could look like on wearing.
This is a gel nail polish that doesn’t need UV Light to set on the nails. Although Sally Hansen recommends to use their top coat for it to last longer. The nail polish isn’t very watery and has an amazing color pay off.
Sally Hansen’s Mauve-olous lasted about 7 days on my nails with absolutely no chip and with a fair amount of house work and using water and soap on my hands. I did find that it does fade after about the 5th day, but even then it doesn’t look bad.
I’ve had gel nail polishes on my nails that don’t stay beyond 3-4 days. And for me this Nail Polish is such a relief as now I have something that won’t chip for 7 days. The shade Mauve-olous in particular is a beautiful peachy pink color which would suit probably all skin colors. It’s the perfect shade for spring summer. I think the nail polish is an excellent buy for the price. I highly recommend it.
I hope you enjoyed reading my review. Do let me know of more affordable nail polish brands so that I can try them out.
