Sally Hansen Salon Gel polish- Kook a mango, White away and Red my lips


Hi there everyone! Today I have 3 more swatches of the Sally Hansen Salon Gel polish collection. Sally Hansen gel polishes are available exclusively at Priceline at the moment here in Australia. You can check out other swatches of their colour range and a tutorial on how to use their starter kit Here . 



Lets get started.

Red my lips- This is the classic red gel polish colour. You cannot really go past a classic red can you. The formula was great and I got opacity in 2 coats. For my swatches I used the Sally Hansen base and top coats, and this was cured for 30 seconds each coat, as per instructions.

White Away- I was a little excited at the chance to try a white gel. So far most of the white gels I own are not very opaque unless you use a min of 4-5 coats. Unfortunately this white was no exception. I layered 5 coats for these manicures and the gel was still not 100% opaque. I could have gone 6 but the gel was getting quite thick on my nails. The colour is also not a true white. It is more of a off white, and I think this is its only saving grace. Most of the gel white I own are bright white, and because this is more of a dirty white I like the idea that I can use it for undies with nail art and will not burn your retinas. I tried it with a couple of pastels for some nail art 2 weeks ago (HERE) and it worked quite well. If you are looking for a true white gel in 2 coats...keep looking, and then tell me ok!

Kook a mango- This is an orange/gel polish. I really loved the colour with this one. I have been a sucker for orange polish lately,so getting this gel was awesome! The formula was great and I only needed 2 coats for full opacity.The orange does lean toward the reds rather than the yellow side of the hue but even so it is a great colour! If you were going to buy one of the Sally Hansen salon gel polishes I think I would recommend this colour. I love it!!!!
