Satin Glam ~ New from Sally Hansen

Posted on: March 26, 2014

(Items in this post were provided to me for review. I was not asked to write about or recommend this product. All opinions are my own.)
Tafetta and Teal Blue in the Satin Glam line from Sally Hansen is a new line, with colors on trend for this Spring and beyond.
I chose the purple (Tafetta ) and the blue (Teal Blue) to wear together because I think they look great together and I could not decide which one to wear first.
The formula for these are thin and application takes some thought. You need to be careful to avoid pooling in the cuticles, along with bald spots. I found thin layers to work the best. Normally my pictures are always 2 coats but with this polish I used 3 very thin coats, no top coat. The brush is a normal brush with a longer than usual handle which can cause the polish to drip down the handle while applying. It is also important to let each coat dry thoroughly between layers. With patience your results will be gorgeous and you will not be sorry. I wore this polish for 5 plus days. After 5 days there was no sign of wear, not even on the tips. Removal was also a bit tricky, but again patience wins out. Hold the remover on your nail for just a few seconds longer than usual and it comes right off.

The first picture was taken in full sunlight, the second indoors. I apologize for my shitty low quality iPad camera as I tried to capture the sparkle of the Satin Glam, with not very good results.
When this polish dries, it is a matte finish with sparkle. Sounds like an oxymoron but it is so true. Even on overcast days,the sparkle shows through. I love the contrast of the matte and the sparkle. I hope you will try this line so you may experience just how pretty this polish is! Sally Hansen nail polishes are very affordable and available at most drug stores.

FINAL THOUGHTS: for the new line of Satin Glam nail polish from Sally Hansen . The Satin Glam line includes a full range of colors. The colors are great and on trend for right now, Spring 2014, and beyond. I try not to use the word “love” too much but I honestly am in love with the Satin Glam line. Once I learned to have patience with application this was a perfect polish. The finish is so interesting to me, and of course the sparkle is my favorite part! The sparkle is very subtle yet amazing. This is one of those nail polishes you will be admiring while you drive, it is that pretty! Please be careful while driving!
If you do try this line, I hope you will let me know what you think!

Judi those colors are really beautiful. I just bought an olloiclip for my iphone and it fits the ipad, you may want to look into it. Your pictures may not be the best all the time but your still my favorite blogger. Hugs -Stacey


Thanks for your helpful tips to apply this polish. I probably would have been very frustrated using Satin Glam without your instructions. The polish looks different than anything else I have seen. I hope I can find it in my little town. I love the final results. Wish me luck. 🙂


Ahh Stacy! You just made my day month!
Thanks so much and I will look into the attachment for photos.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
