Nothing wrong at all with being a nail polish addict – we’ll be the first ones to confess that we collect nail colours like we were born with 100 nails and had the time to switch our nail colour every other day. Treat yourself to all the nudes or glitters or duochromes or cremes you want, because nail colours are fun, and everyone should get to wear as much of it as they want to.

But yes, there’s a downside, and it’s that nail polish makes your nails go dry and brittle. That’s why when you go too long without letting your nails breathe, you find that they become more prone to breakage, and start to sport unsightly ridges. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s a whole bunch of nail problems out there that women often have to deal with: dry and rough cuticles, nail discolouration, chipped nails, peeling nails, and weaker nails in the long term, in addition to the afore-mentioned brittleness and ridging.

That’s a lot of problems for a simple pleasure like giving yourself a nice manicure or pedicure, we think. Sally Hansen agrees, so they’re here to save the day with this new product that’s really quite the superhero: the Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment that promises to solve all of the above nail problems, in addition to functioning as both a base and top coat.


Its power lies in a combination of avocado oil, sea salt, pomegranate extract and calcium, all the natural stuff that helps keep nails healthy. One coat as a base coat and one more as a top coat is all you need of this product, and the new flat brush design ensures it always goes on smoothly and evenly. In three days, your nail woes go away and nails become stronger and smoother, and it also promises to keep your nail colour looking shiny and fresh for up to 10 days.

We’re seriously loving that we now only need this one bottle for our base coat, top coat and nail care product, which also means we can have more room to store more new nail polishes. Go ahead, indulge in that manicure guilt-free.
