On my nails: Sally Hansen Berry Juicy

Has anyone actually ever seen Sally Hansen? I ask because I have forever pictured her as a warm, wise older lady and then I read Gemsmaquillage's blogpost about this very topic and = mind. blown.

Anyway, Sally Hansen Berry Juicy. I think you will agree that this is my kind of colour. :)

Of course, I didn't need it. It's the same family as Essie Fiji, China Glaze's Something Sweet or OPI's Mod About You. But I own up and embrace my baby pink polish obsession and when the quality is good, the price low then it makes perfect sense to add another one to the collection.



Seriously, the consistency and quality of this is fantastic. It lasts at least 4 days without significant chipping and for me that is excellent going.  It's an opaque creamy finish in 2 coats. Coat 1 is a streaky mess of course but coat 2 brings everything together.

This shade was part of the summer collection so I really hope it's still around for people to try. I got it a few weeks ago.

Like I said though there are many dupes - China Glaze's Something Sweet is the closest judging by swatches online. Berry Juicy is a little richer than Essie Fiji (and less of a difficult bitch to apply) and is more of a pure pink when compared to the lilac undertones that run through OPI Mod About You but they are all in the same family.

I mean, you can hardly tell the difference between one thumb and the other can you?



Have you tried this polish?

In other news, I am so excited for the weekend. I have a couple of days off work so hopefully it's going to be a nice, relaxing break with zero email checking. I am off to the beach tomorrow so expect many annoying pictures of gorgeous sunsets and artfully placed cocktails :)

  1. I don't usually gravitate towards pink nail polish, but this looks so pretty! Sally Hansen is one of my favorite nail polish brands! Significantly less cheap than other brands, but works SO well.

    1. Agreed! And easier to get hold of as well in pretty much any country. God Bless Sally Hansen - whoever she is :)

  4. So pretty! I've only used Sally Hansen's white polish and the first two coats are a mess. The third makes it all worthwhile.

  7. I'm really not usually one for pinks but this looks so pretty on you! Might have to go and try it out. And I was also shocked when I read Gemmas blog post about Sally Hansen, I definitely had the same image in my head of what she'd look like!

  12. Love it! One of my favorite light pinks is Vanity Fairest by Essie, but this pink is much more pink, and I like it! Especially with everyone else talking about dark nails right now! :)

  14. I've never tried this particular Sally Hansen's line of polishes. You know, the bottle is quite plain and I am a sucker for cute packaging (hence my recent purchase of an over priced bottle of Marc Jacobs nail polish).

  16. I haven't tried this but I've just bought a similar shade by Crabtree and Evelyn because they w just started to do '3 free' polisges. I can't wait to try it. I'm hoping its going to be less of a nightmare to apply than essie fiji. X

  17. It is lovely to see a baby pink when all I have been thinking about is deep berries and bordeauxs!

  19. OMG Sally Hansen does not exist?! :O
    I actually had to google it myself just to make sure!
    Gorgeous colour, by the way! :)
    I used a similar type of colour by Barry M in my NOTD post: http://berrybloomxo.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/nail-of-day-lilac-sparkles.html

  21. So glad that you posted this! My Essie Fiji is running out, and I really don't feel like spending the $8 again for it. The Sally Hansen one is beautiful! :)

  22. Such a deceiving name for a pink nail polish haha. I was picturing a colour like Revlon's Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie! I will definitely keep an eye out for this one because it's a gorgeous colour. I quite like that formula as well. I have 'White On' on my nails as I type this! Enjoy your days off xo Jess

  28. Interesting! I just read Gemma's post, and then did some sleuthing of my own. So now the Sally Hansen website is saying 'It was in the late 1950s when Sally Hansen, together with her chemist husband, pioneered a nail protection formula called Hard As Nails.'

    I totally pictured her as a fabulous cocktail swigging lady of leisure with immaculate nails.

  29. DAMN Laura, first lets start off with the RING GIRL. I have been reading your blog all growing up (I am now 20 and am sure I still have much growing to do) ever since you were known as lollipop26 and did extensions with Elle Fowler in NYC haha! For some reason...I mean you would mention your partner every now and again, but seeing that ring all of a sudden I just realized how I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU BEING MARRIED AND ALL now matter how late this little comment of mine is :) I feel like you're almost an old friend I've been chatting with for years now haha so it just felt in order to say that. I never comment on your posts (I guess I'm one of those horrible silent readers because we never leave any trance) but I really do look up to you for fashion inspiration and over the years and blog posts you have just carried yourself very well and I really do wish to evoke your demeanor and style :)

    Keep doing what you're doing!!!

    Love from Vancouver, Canada

    p.s. love the nails haha :)

  31. That is so crazy! I always imagined a lady named Sally Hansen who started her small business somewhere on a remote island into what is now a conglomerate of a business. I never even thought of researching who she is because in my mind, she exists/existed!

  33. Hi! Sally Hansen actually was a real woman. I used to work at COTY (which owns Sally Hansen). She was the wife of a chemist who founded the brand and launched the brand after formulating a range of nail products that would strengthen his wife's nails as she suffered from brittle nails hence the birth of Sally Hansen hard as nails :)
