Sally Hansen’s Black Platinum Nail Polish

by Jami Summers on August 15, 2010 · 4 comments

I am one Bionic Beauty who can’t resist grabbing a new nail polish on my weekly trips to the local drugstore… my latest purchase was another bottle of Sally Hansen’s new nail polish formula “Complete Salon”. Like the previous Sally Hanson Complete Salon nail polishes I reviewed, Black Platinum wore, and applied, exceptionally well.

The first coat applied a bit uneven and translucent; but the flow was nice and it dried quickly.

Sally Hansen's new Complete Salon nail polish in Black Platinum


The second coat (for the record, my photo shows two coats) evened things out and brought the polish to full bottle color. Black Platinum is a gorgeous dark pewter with a slight frost effect and microshimmer. The shimmer flashes mostly silver under regular lighting, but in bright, direct light you’ll see sparks of green, turquoise, silver and blue.

I definitely think these are the best drugstore nail polishes currently available! Have you tried the new SH Complete Salon nail polish yet? If so, what colors do you have and what are your thoughts?

I have the ‘Clear’d for Take Off’ and ‘Hidden Treasure.’ I like to use the Clear for a base coat and top coat. I need to grab the black as it looks nice on you.

Hi Phyrra, The Black Platinum would look gorgeous on you!! I’m going to grab Hidden Treasure… I saw it on the Walgreens clearance bin for $2.99 the other day and am smacking myself now for not picking it up. I think it would be great for Halloween over a dark purple, deep blue, or black polish! Although CG’s Fortune Teller is also in my collection. ;) I adore Halloween polishes. (Go figure, right?!?)

this polish looks amazing!!!! i used to love wearing black polish, but now i find it to be a bit too dark for my skin tone. but with the shiny specks it might work out.
also, going off on a tangent, because thats what i’m good at, halloween is my favorite holiday! i love all the interesting nail polishes, and (some) of the makeup! my favorite polish is the clear coat with all the specks and tiny strips of black and orange glitter!!! lol i cannot wait to go shopping for halloween makeup!
also, sephora puts out makeup collections for a certain looks, like fairies, angels, vampires, etc. i thought that was a cool idea because i’ve bought some halloween makeup that totally didnt work and i had to go back to the store to try and find a replacement :(
