Sally Hansen Complete Salon: Lavender Cloud

Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud Nail Polish

Last week I talked about the new and improved Sally Hansen Salon in Commander in Chic and today I'm bringing you another core line shade called, Lavender Cloud. This one is interesting, very interesting - especially if you love whites.

Lavender Cloud is described as an opaque, white creme dashed with pale lavender-pink undertones. The application and formula caught me off guard. I didn't expect perfection, no streaking in two coats! Loves it!

Check out a comparison swatch below.  

White and Nude Nail Polish Comparisons

As you can see in the swatch above, Lavender Cloud is much whiter compared to Light Affair, which is more of a nude with a touch of lavender.

If you love the new Sally Hansen Salon, it's a great time to stock up. Walgreens is having a Buy one, Get one free sale this week on Salon and Inta-Dri's. That's two for $7.95 - great deal!

What do you think of Lavender Cloud? What are some of your favorite colors form the Complete Salon Manicure line? Have a happy and safe New Year!

I like this better than Light Affair. Saw it today at my Walgreens, maybe next time I'll pick it up!

I love it! But I'm bummed because I can't find this collection anywhere :( I've tried Walmart and Walgreens. Is it not mass-market released until next year, maybe?

Been a while since I commented here. I'm loving this new line. I love the Lavender Cloud on you, and have been thinking about getting one for myself since I've been searching for a white that is neither sheer nor streaky and draggy. My faves so far are Midnight in NY, Calypso Blue, and Naked Ambition as well as Commander in Chic. I'm planning on getting more of them soon.

I love the 3 you've swatched from SH Complete Salon. My faves so far are Grey by Grey (a really interesting color, in that it is more of a muted teal than grey, but really pretty), and Midnight in NY - black with subtle glitter. Can't wait to see more of your swatches!

Generally, I'm not a believer in all-in-one product claims. Much like the old Pert Plus, which claimed to be a shampoo and conditioner in one, I don't believe that a pigmented polish can substitute for a base coat, color and topcoat. They all serve different purposes and thus are each formulated differently. If nothing else, this product won't protect nails from staining, since the pigment goes right on your nails if you use it as intended. I thought the application was too thick, too messy, and the result not to my liking.

I got Navy Baby and Grass Slipper a couple of months ago, tried them, and back they went. I found both bottles to be strangely overfilled with product, where I had to keep wiping the brushes off, and both brushes seemed like they were lopped off in an uneven way that made application very difficult. I might have thought these were defects, but since 2 different colors had the same issues, I can only assume the overfilling and brush shapes are intentional. While SH has had some fantastic products over the years, this one was a miss for me.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
