Sally Hansen – Double Duty Base & Top Coat


Although this may just be a regular base and top coat by Sally Hansen I thought it was worth posting about for one reason and one reason only; the shine it gives your nails is superb.

The packet it came in, which I’ve unfortunately chucked in the bin since, advised the nail varnish would keep your manicure unchipped and shinier (than your usual clear nail varnish although not those exact words I’m pretty sure that’s what Sally was trying to imply.)

I’ve used this on a few of my nail polishes now and I can honestly say it gives off a brilliant shine, especially on red, as you can see below, or layer it up on one of Barry M’s Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paints to notch up the gelly effect.

I can’t comment too much on the resistance against chipping – I still got chips – but for the opposite effect of matt nails (which I also love) this is a good contender.
