Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish in Plum Luck Swatches

I remember back in the day, before I became an Essie nail polish crazy lady, that I really enjoyed the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure range. Their varnishes were front row in my nail polish stand, so recently I decided to give some new shades a whirl and rekindle my love for the line. The shade that instantly captured my heart was Plum Luck (here). In the bottle it is a stunning deep plum-y color, which is unlike anything I have in my collection. Plum Luck is one of those shades that appear darker on the nails and change their color depending on the lighting. You guessed it – this beauty looks much darker, almost black, in low light and shows its true berry / plum-y undertones in brighter light. It does feel very autumnal and sophisticated both ways and it suits all skin tones beautifully. If you are a ‘vampy purple’ kind a gal – Plum Luck is a must-have.

Sadly, Plum Luck was a bit of a let down in the formula department. Don’t get me wrong – it still has decent formula but I just had way too high expectations because of my previous experience with the Complete Salon Manicure range. Plum Luck leans more toward the watery side of thing, which is not my preferred consistency. It does go a bit streaky and it’s bald patches-heavy, so you need about three thin layers to get the color fully opaque and even. The polish dries quickly, so it’s not too much of a hustle but the shade gets darker and darker with every layer, which is why I’m not too keen. I do want to be able to see the gorgeous plum hues. Plum Luck hangs around for about 2-3 days without chipping, which is not ideal, so I’d put some topcoat on if I were you. Apart from that, I have to say that I adore the user-friendly, nail-hugging brush – it makes the application process that much easier and enjoyable. Oh, and I have to mention the stunning high-shine finish of Plum Luck - it’s super pretty!

Have you tried Plum Luck before? Do you like it?

Lots of love,

  1. This shade looks so divine and just perfect for autumn! Kinda wish the formula would be better, I can't work with watery consistencies but I do think the shade is beautiful

  11. This is such a stunning shade! I love the depth as purples can sometimes be too bright for me.
