Review: Sally Hansen Grass Slipper

Grass Slipper Nail Lacquer
 I've had this Sally Hansen nail lacquer for the past two years and have been using it, but I'm just now getting around to reviewing it on my blog. I'm going to pretend that I've just been waiting for the right time to talk about it since Grass Slipper is kind of a spring color, but truthfully I haven't done a nail polish review since Essie Miss Fancy Pants, and that was in September. I think that in the future I'm going to try and do more "quality" posts like these reviews, and DIYs. But on to the nail nail enamel.

Sally Hansen is a drug store nail polish and a less expensive one at that so I wasn't expecting top quality  but it really does well. This color is a part of their complete salon manicure that might explain why they decided to get all creative with the brush, something I have to say that I don't like all that well. As you can see in the picture below it is a lot wider than the normal brush, and when I first saw it I expected it to be sponge like, something that I think would be really cool. Unfortunately it isn't though, it has normal brush hairs. I found this flat wide design a lot harder to use and it required quite a bit more clean up than a more traditional nail polish brush. The only advantage that I can see it having is that it covers more space so you can get done faster.
The lacquer itself though applied very smoothly and went on quite opaque. I found that I only had to use two coats to get it thick enough, a quality that isn't present in a lot of cheaper nail varnishes.  As far as chipping goes I think that this could be a full week manicure if a top coat is used. These pictures are taken two days after my nails have been painted and don't have any type of sealer on top and there is only minimal chipping. 

The Grass Slipper color really has to be one of my favorite for spring. It has the same coloring as fresh grass coming up in the spring. Depending on what you're doing for prom (speaking of which you can check out my What to Wear to Prom post) this might be a good alternative to getting a manicure, because the quality really is there.
