NAILS | Sally Hansen Color Therapy Green and Gold Half Moons #ManiMonday

I am just shocked at myself for not using more Sally Hansen polishes last year as this was practically the brand that got me into nail art! Sally Hansen always has so many solid creme shades that make them wonderful for dotting or as a foundation for other nail art. In the summer of last year, Sally Hansen introduced their new Color Therapy line which includes argan, acai and evening primrose oil in their actual nail polish formulations to condition and strengthen nails while having an awesome-looking manicure! Call me old-fashioned, but when it comes to nail polish, it's always going to be one of those beauty products that IS harmful. We are all trying our best to make it LESS harmful, but until the day comes when you can drink the bottle or apply it to your skin with no ill effects, a formulation with as few bad things as we can spare is what we are going to have to settle for!

I am still a little "nail-arted out" from the holidays so my detailer brush will have to wait until later, but for today's manicure, I was watching a Youtube video where someone was mixing a gel polish finish with one of the new chrome powders (I think I will have to try this VERY soon!) and I thought, why not mix a glitter with a creme finish?!

I started off with two coats of Sally Hansen Color Therapy - Therapewter* and waited for it to FULLY dry. Then I applied adhesive ring reinforcements at the base of my nail to create a half moon. I then applied one thick coat of Sally Hansen Color Therapy - Cool Cucumber* and then peeled off the reinforcements right away. You can stop here or you can add a little bit of extra flash with some dots of Therapewter. Top coat and you're done!

I haven't really noticed too much of a difference in terms of wear time with these polishes and right now I am at 5 days without a single chip which is pretty good I think!
