Drugstore Beauty Queen: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

I probably own about 100 nail polishes.  No exaggeration.  I just can't pass up a pretty polish, regardless of how extensive my own collection already is.

But when I found Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure polish in Gray by Gray, I knew that I had a legitimate reason to purchase it.  I've never seen another color like it.

Though the hue is described as gray, it's actually more of a slate blue.  It looks gorgeous on and is unique enough for you to receive questions galore about where you acquired such a shade.

The formula itself is great.  Supposedly, each bottle contains all five steps of a salon manicure (base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color and top coat).  While that might be a bit of an exaggeration, the polish definitely does go on smoothly and evenly with two coats.  That said, I still used it with my Seche Base coat and my Seche Vite top coat for maximum lasting power.  I found that the polish lasted about a week, which is really saying a lot for me, as I constantly pick at my nails.

I'm having a hard time finding this exact shade online.  I bought it at Walmart, but it's not on their site (or anywhere else for that matter).  But Ulta does have every single other color available for purchase on their site for about $8.
