Pin ItToday I am sharing with you two polishes from the Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect Line.  These two shades are perfect for Spring!  First, lets review how Sally Hansen describes the line:

WHAT IT IS: Creamy color and porcelain-smooth perfection in one beautiful polish. The latest trend to hit your fingertips. Nearly naked, barely-there color with plenty of shine. The ultimate in understated elegance, sheer shades and healthy even shine work for every occasion. That’s why Sally Hansen created a chic collection of nude nail polishes that marries the two, Smooth and Perfect Color + Care, the ultimate fusion of perfecting polish and beautifying care.

Designed to hide ridges and imperfections, the uniquely breathable formula promotes stronger, healthier looking nails with a patented technology that allows for up to 20% more oxygen to reach the nail. The result? Ridges and imperfections are virtually erased and nails are left looking smooth, shiny and porcelain perfect.

Sea is gorgeous, dreamy powdery blue.  Not stuffy, not harsh.  Here I used three coats, but you could easily wear two for a more sheer look.  I had no idea it was a shimmer until I saw it in the sun!

Sea is slightly less pigmented than Sky.  I used four coats as opposed to the three that I used with Sky.  My bottle of Sea was broken in shipment, so that is why you see Sea in both pictures.

I didn’t wear the polishes long enough to evaluate the claims of healthier nails, but I can tell you that just three coats of Sky hid the horrible ridges on my thumb nails!

There are seven shades available in all:  Fog, Linen, Dune, Satin, Whisper, Air, Sea, Sorbet .  I definitely picked the best two!  You can find these polishes  at chain drug stores, food stores and mass merchandisers nationally, and they retail for $5.49
