Sally Hansen - CONCRETE

Nails I Love


Hi Goddesses

I am in love!  Holy Moly one-and-only nail polish love!  Here, ladies, is Sally Hansen Concrete.

Concrete – such an uninspiring name.  One of the most drab things in the universe that I can think of, and responsible for more ugly buildings in the UK than is possible to count.  But as a nail varnish ?  Oh.  My.  God.

Sally Hansen Concrete is delicious.  She’s soft, she’s feminine, she’s subtle – she’s awesome!  Concrete is a super-soft fairy-lite taupe with barely there lilac overtones.  She’s like a pastel version of one of my all-time faves, OPI’s Parlez Vous OPI.

The perfect taupe is one of my polish Holy Grails, and Concrete has just about ended it.  She’s such a perfect blend of the cool and the warm, the aloof and the luscious, the greige and the lilac.  This is one delicious babe.

I only put this on to test it, and now I don’t want to take it off!  Seasonally, she’s an all-rounder, taupey enough for fall, lilacy enough for summer.  She’s formal, she’s fun, she’s work, she’s a weekender.

Like all SH’s Concrete is super-glossy – you could easily go without top coat.  Wow, I am just awestruck by the beauty of this colour.  Effortless application, super shiny, and indescribably, dreamily beautiful – what more could a girl want ?

Concrete goes straight into my almost completed Top 10.  She’s a winner in every way, and pretty much damned perfect.

Enjoy J
