Sally Hansen’s Satin Glam in Silk Onyx

Sally Hansen nail polish is the polish my beloved Grandma used to wear. I would love to know that Grandma would think of Sally Hansen polishes today. She wore those frosty pink or beige shades. I rather like my nails polished and I love Sally Hansen polishes but, that’s were the similarity between grandmother and granddaughter ends. I like this one!… DSCF0053 DSCF0049   The Satin Glam line has an array of different shades from wild to mild. The finish is a semi-matte and the texture is just a bit pebbly. But this shade, ‘Silk Onyx’, sets right on trend with 2014 nail wear… DSCF0051 DSCF0050 DSCF0052 The color you see in the bottle is nothing like what you find on the nail. I was expecting a midnight blue/galaxy-like color. But, I’m not disappointed with what transpired… DSCF0054 After a couple of days of tip wear, Satin Glam is holding on pretty tight. I have on three coats but no top coat. I tried out a top coat on the thumbnail to see if it would shine and it was a no-go. Silk Onyx ate that top coat in one big gulp. So it is totally meant to be a semi-matte finish. Removal wasn’t hard at all. I used Zoya’s Remove+ and it was easy. I have on a layer of clear soak-off gel to strengthen my nails as a base coat and it didn’t have any staining from this polish.

I got ‘Silk Onyx’ at Walgreen’s for $6. This week, Walgreens has them as a BOGO 1/2 price online. Have you tried any of the Satin Glam polishes?

  • That is such an interesting finish. So different. I like it!

    • I wanted to make it shiny but just couldn’t. I still like it though.

    This looks great on you. I should pick up a bottle and give it a whirl. I am kind of in to the textures and so on, right now. 😀

      They aren’t advertising it as a texture, I don’t think. But, I wanted to mention it as some folks don’t care for any texture-y feel.

  • What a great color!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      It was quite pretty.

  • FabZilla_Kath

    You made me miss my own grandma. She influenced me a lot, makeup-wise. I bet your grandma was just as fabulous!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      She influenced me to be a red lipstick lover!

  • Amber

    I love that color!! I need to try some of the Satin Glam, but I keep forgetting to look for them! 🙂

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I bet you’d like more than just this shade too.

  • I like the color, not so much the finish

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I don’t think they are pushing the texture part of this polish, Kim. However, I did want to mention it as I know there are some that don’t want any texture feel at all on their polishes. This one wouldn’t be for you if that is true.

  • Norah Salazar

    Haven’t tried Satin Glam but for some odd reason Sally Hansen always chips even using good base/ top coats. 🙁

    • Kimberly Purcell

      That used to happen to me too, Norah. But after a handful of years when I went back to SH, I didn’t have that issue. I think it had to do with my own nails rather than the polish though. I’m just guessing.

  • This looks like such a pretty color. I haven’t tried many Sally Hansen polishes put this may be getting added to my wish list.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Hopefully, you can find it in the stores and see it IRL and know if you would like it. I am all for it!

  • I have this and I really like it!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      It is really pretty, isn’t it?

  • Aleya Bamdad

    This is definitely one of my favorite polishes.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      SH has come a long way over the years. But, they had to or they would have missed the trend boat!

  • Jessica InTruBeauty

    Very pretty. I love this brand.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I like their shades a lot and always look forward to finding out what their new collections will be.

  • Sally Hansen polishes are good!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I agree with you!

  • What a beautiful color! I haven’t tried these polishes, but that will have to change!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      The price isn’t outrageous and would be worth a looky-see. 🙂

  • Ange

    This color is absolutely gorgeous!!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      It was not what I expected but I was not disappointed one bit.

  • That color looks so interesting! I love their formulas so I’ll have to look for this

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Indeed, the formula was awesome on this one.

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    I really love satin finish polishes! This looks gorgeous!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Thanks! It made me want to try more from that line.

  • I haven’t tried these, but I love this look, and now I want to!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Because this one has such good pigmentation, I think you’d like it for your nail art.

  • Kelly R

    That’s a nice color!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I liked it a lot too.

  • No, I have not tried anything from this line. But I might as I have been on a nail polish self discovery lately. =)

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Since these aren’t too expensive, it would be a nice little bonus in your shopping cart. 😉

  • I haven’t tried any of the Satin ones… but it looks interesting. I want to pick up at least one and try it.

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I would be curious to know which shade you’d end up with too.

  • I really like the finish on this!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      The texture was very fine; not smooth. But I don’t mind texture polishes. I think this one would be good for someone that wanted to ease their way into texture polishes.

  • Anastasia

    Very unique finish, and the color is super vampy!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      It is vampy, indeed!

  • Lovely shade!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I bet you’d rock it OUT!!!!

  • cindyprimebeauty

    So much prettier on than in the bottle!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I do, actually, like both. So it was a win either way. 🙂

  • Justina

    Very pretty shade!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I really like it too.

  • kSquaredGlamour

    great shade!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      It won out over all the others in the collection.

  • I love this!

    • Kimberly Purcell

      Did you get this shade? You should!

  • Betzy Carmona

    That’s a gorgeous shade

    • Kimberly Purcell

      I am very pleased with the choice I made. 🙂
