I think half my posts start with “I was at Ulta….” but….I was at Ulta and spotted butter LONDON Toff. It looked like a gorgeous color but not particularly unique so I took Toff over to the OPI and Essie displays to see if I could find a match. Essie Island Hopping looked to be a dead on dupe. While all of this was happening I was on the phone with Katie. She suggested that there was probably a similar color in one of the Sally Hansen lines. Turns out she was right!
Gorgeous Grape is a slightly red leaning purple creme. The base color reminds me quite alot of OPI Catherine the Grape. It’s a gorgeous color!
This is the first polish from Sally Hansen’s Nailgrowth line I have used so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Katie didn’t help my uncertainty when she flat out said “what if the formula sucks!”. Yeah, thanks alot. But, turns out, the formula was lovely. I used three coats and had no problems with streakyness or bald spots.
I obviously bought this polish for the color, but Sally Hansen claims this is quite the miracle worker. The polish is formulated with “Peptides, Keratin, Biotin and Multi-Vitamins, reinforces nails to resist splitting, cracking and breaking.” Sally Hansen also claims that nails grow 30% longer in 5 days using this polish. I can’t really speak to these claims. I am lucky in that I don’t have any of these nail issues. But, it is good to know that this polish is formulated to do good things for your nails 🙂
