Field of Wildflowers feat. Sally Hansen Nail Art Brushes

Press Sample

Sally Hansen sent me a three-piece nail art brush kit to try out along with a nail treatment polish. So I wanted to find a way to use all the brushes in one mani and this is what I came up with.

I started with the fan brush for a grassy look at the tips of my nails, then used the flat square brush for my flower petals, and the small angled brush dipped in acetone to clean up around my cuticles.

I used almost a dozen Sally Hansen polishes for my look:

  • Mint Sorbet (base)
  • Fairy Teal (teal grass)
  • Gigabryte (yellow grass)
  • Cinny Sweet (burgundy sparkle flowers)
  • All Fired Up (berry red flowers)
  • Shock Wave (pink flowers)
  • Firey Island (orange flowers)
  • Grass Slipper (leaves)
  • Digi-Teal (light blue flowers)
  • Taffy Tart (dark blue sparkle flowers)
  • Punch Drunk (fuchsia flowers)

And the fan brushing grass before I added all the flowers:

I started the mani with Sally Hansen's treatment polish and topped it off with two more coats. It did a great job of not smearing my art. It was on the thicker side so it made a nice base barrier but also did a great job of smoothing everything out. I didn't notice it offering any benefits to the health of my nails but I didn't wear it long and just once so far.

And the brushes, which stayed nice and soft after their bath in acetone, and I had no issues at all with bristle fallout.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
