Sally Hansen Reformulates Their Complete Salon Manicure Line


THINK: The ultimate salon-caliber polish gets a gel-shine finish and enhanced chip-resistant power.

WHAT IT IS: A breakthrough way to maximize your manicure. As the ultimate color authority, Sally Hansen has always been at the cutting edge of nail innovation. First, Sally Hansen introduced the first-ever polish to deliver five steps of a professional manicure with the Complete Salon Manicure collection. Now the nail care leader is upping the ante with two additional benefits—gel-like shine and chip-resistance—for the ultimate 7-in-1 formula.

THE TECHNOLOGY: Reformulated with three proprietary time-released protecting shine enhancers, Complete Salon Manicure now delivers lasting shine—the closest you can get to a gel effect without a gel manicure. Housed in breakthrough nano-tubes, the shine enhancers are released as your nails flex during daily wear and tear, helping provide an additional benefit: maximum chip- resistance.

THE BRUSH: The Precision Brush is rounded to fit the curve of your cuticles and is perfectly shaped to hug the contours of your nails. With an 800-bristle count, shorter brush length, and precision product pickup, the brush promotes better application for better wear.

THE COLORS: Combining universally flattering shades with the latest effects and looks, Sally Hansen offers the must-have hues of the moment in the most comprehensive formula yet: Complete Salon Manicure. Shades include:
  • Metal-Morphasis: Metals are evolving beyond silver and gold to capture coppers (Copper Penny), bronze and gunmetal (Shoot the Moon). Oversized particles in metals and holographics (Snow Globe) create a luminous effect.
  • Barely Blush: Innocent nudes and sheers are a soft response to the vibrant color culture. White sheer (Sheer Bliss) and shimmer glaze (Debut-tint) give a new look to the classics.
  • Earthy Delights: Opaque skin tones (Pink Pong), terra cotta (So Much Fawn) and stone (Greige) create grounded colors for a modern spin on looks from the 70’s.
  • Garden Party: New pastels are dusty (I Lilac You), urban (Gray-T Escape) and not your standard pink or lavender (Pink a Card) for a more wearable and less traditional spin.
  • Fruity Florals: Floral (Rosey Outlook), Coral (Peach of Cake) and Orchid (Punch Drunk) colors are combined to create gorgeous brights.
  • Red Desire: Classic Orangey Red (All Fired Up) and plummy wines (Ruby Do and Trouble Maker) complement the purple fashions of the season.
  • Under the Sea: These marine shades range from sea foam (Jaded) to Cobalt (Blue My Mind) to a fantastical mix of blue and green (Mermaid’s Tail).

WHERE TO FIND THEM: Sally Hansen products are available at chain drug stores and mass retailers nationally

Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Launches ME's Core Collection (+ Giveaway)

Dermelect Cosmeceuticals, the company that introduced the 1st peptide-infused, anti-aging lacquer treatment, announces the launch of ME’s Core collection. Designed for women who desire to grow out long, strong, natural nails without compromising fashionable fingertips, ME’s technologically advanced, salon-strength formulations are 3-Free and contain ProSina, a pure protein extract derived from New Zealand sheep’s wool that strengthens the nails and nourishes the skin.

Though the ME collection was introduced in 2012 with six summer and three resort on-trend shades, this is Dermelect’s first complete color lacquer collection. Dermelect turned to Celebrity Nail Tech, Elle, who is on Dermelect’s Board of Advisors to create a cohesive collection for ME. “Elle’s stellar reputation in the industry, as well as her tremendous fashion flair provided for an excellent opportunity to synergistically get involved with our innovative, anti-aging nail treatment colors,” says Amos Lavian, Founder of Dermelect Cosmeceuticals.

The 12 hues in ME’s Core collection include your staple nudes, pinks and reds in crème, sheer and metallic finishes, along with trend-setting blues, greens and purples, which Elle considers must-haves. “By adding in more vibrant, fashion-forward colors, this will allow you to create texture and your favorite nail art,” says Elle.

Just like Dermelect’s cosmeceutical collection, all of the ME anti-aging color treatments are named to evoke the esteem of the person who uses it:
  • PRETENTIOUS-purple passion
  • SWAGGER-autumn royal plum
  • INDULGENCE-translucent pink
  • RED-ICULOUS-classic chinese red crème
  • VIVACIOUS-verdant pine green
  • PHENOM-egyptian blue
  • SO SUPERB-magnificent creamy mauve
  • BLUE BLOOD-rich crimson with blue undertone
  • DEBONNAIRE-opaque nude
  • OPULENCE-french porcelain white
  • STUNNER-metallic mocha blend
  • DECADENCE-metallic espresso with green undertone

The first coat instantly bonds to the nail, while the second fuses with the base coat to create a flexible web of color that resists chipping and improves brittleness. The ME colors combine fast drying, high shine and a healthy ‘green’ dose of vitamins, peptides and moisture, offering a colorful solution to the contemporary woman’s beauty concern—aging nails and hands.

ProSina Protein Peptide-Hydrolyzed Keratin extracted from New Zealand sheep’s wool that strengthens the nails and moisturizes the skin.

  • Strengthens weak, brittle nails
  • Restores nail flexibility
  • Helps nails resist chipping and splitting
  • Provides long-lasting, high shine and bold color
  • Water and detergent resistant
  • Protects against UV rays
  • Formaldehyde, DBP and Toluene FREE
  • Cruelty FREE (no animal testing) 

Dermelect’s ME Core lacquers, available April 2013, retail for $14.00 and can be purchased online at and at high-end apothecaries, beauty boutiques, salons, spas, medi-spas and doctors offices.
