Review Thursday: Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Coat

I have been on the look out for a good base and top coat for a while now. Anyone who knows me, knows that I always love to have painted nails, but the few times I wear them bare I absolutely despise having stained nails from nail polish, so having a good base coat is important for me! I also prefer 2 in 1 solutions as it saves me money and I don't have much more space to be storing more nail polishes right now, so having one bottle that does both jobs is an even bigger bonus!



I can safely say that this product is FABULOUS, and I seriously mean it! It glides on to a clean nail so smoothly, as I find that sometimes base coats can be quite gloopy and thick, this one is perfection. It gives a high gloss shine, so perfect for a bare manicure, whilst protecting and strengthening the nails. It dries at the speed of light, and as I am not one for waiting around, this is a HUGE bonus for moi! 

As a top coat it does an even better job, in my opinion. I am quite a hands on type of girl (in the cleaning/gardening/sporting etc type of way!) so nail polish doesn't always last as long as they could with me. However, I have been wearing the same polish for ... ONE WEEK! That's right ladies and gentlemen, ONE WHOLE WEEK, CHIP FREE and still as shiny and glossy as ever. Sally Hansen/the makers behind you are a genius!

Overall, I adore this product. I think it's great for the price £5.99 rrp. Obviously the price is dependent on the shop, but if you are looking for a great base/top coat combo or even just a base coat to help strengthen your nails, then I would highly recommend this one to you!

Has anyone tried any of the other Sally Hansen products out there?

Lots of love,
