Sally Hansen's Nail Laquer is something I was rather excited to try, as I am quite picky about my nail polishes. I don't do my nails very often, and I'm always on the hunt for the perfect colour. I found the colour "Wine Not" in a grocery store, and was enamoured of the colour I saw in the bottle. It looked very shimmery and is a deep, almost purplish red.
Application isn't bad - the polish doesn't drip as much as some of the thinner formulas do, and the brush is a good size. It dries rather quickly - not as fast as some of the 60-second polishes, but in a moderate amount of time.
However, after application, the polish tends to chip very quickly. This was partially my fault, as I don't currently have a bottle of clear topcoat to apply after the polish is dry. However, I was noticing significant chips after the first day, and you could see large clunks of my nail underneath after only a few days. Also, after a few days, the colour starts to dull somewaht, and is not nearly as shimmery as when first applied.
For those who take proper care o their home manicures, I'm sure this product would work out much better. However, for a girl who works with her hands and doesn't have a lot of time to work on touch-ups, this polish was not nearly sturdy enough. Pretty colour - almost the perfect shade! - but I need something a bit more hardy!
