Purple Pulse by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure
Happy New Year everyone! The first lacquer I chose to swatch in 2011 is this shade of aubergine. The color itself is pretty, if a little commonplace. I’ve tried exactly one Complete Salon Manicure before, and it was also ho-hum. I dislike the thick formula (note the presence of several bubbles) and wide brush, which is supposed to facilitate full coverage of the nail but also makes it easier for individual bristles to get bent the wrong way. Also, this formula is designed to negate top and base coat, but you’d be foolish to eschew a base coat with a color this dark, because it will stain. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for an eggplant-purple frost that applies quickly, you could certainly do worse.
