Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect ColorCare Swatch & Review in Sorbet


Normally I am not one for sheers. Or nudes. Or “mannequin hands” as they’re called or even the natural girl-next-door look. So when I first picked this polish up it was the result of needing to kill some time while waiting at Ulta. I saw “porcelain” finish and thought hmm what could that mean? I 100% expected to banish this polish next to the shoes I only wear for job interviews.

Here’s the official summary of this polish line:

Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color + Care Nail Color

This breakthrough nail color hides ridges and imperfections with a breathable porcelain-smooth finish. Enhanced with ginseng, camellia oil and lotus to promote stronger, healthier nails. Allows 20% more oxygen to reach nails. Streak-free formula. Made in USA.

Sally Hansen is free of DBP, toluene & formaldehyde.

Sorbet looks pretty orange in bottle but when applied it takes on this gorgeous peachy nude that is soft, pastel and with a glowing creme finish. These colors also seem to make nails look well groomed and just…pretty. Think “Jennifer Aniston movie nails”. The formula was perfect, and not the thin watery consistency that is usually expected with a polish like this. Not only does that mean no streaks but the color is clearly visible on first, second and third coat. While not super sheer, the nail line could still be seen until coat three.

The whole line has now caught my attention and I’m looking forward to picking up the blue (“air”) and the lavender (“whisper”) during my next drugstore trip.
