The latest thing in nail polish is using products that are good for your nails and Sally Hansen’s new Color Therapy line is definitely in that category. The 33 colour collection (all picked by Madeline Poole) is packed with good for your nails ingredients likeĀ argan oil, acai berry and evening primrose oil. The line also has a top coat and cuticle oil to go along with it. The shades are split up in to three categories; pinks and corals, nudes and rich tones and they all have spa inspired names.

The Color Therapy line is really easy to use. You don’t use a base coat and you can use the top coat but don’t have to. I found they all dried really quickly but they still have that massive Sally Hansen brush that’s way too big for my nail beds, so I had lots of cleanup to do. All of these come off easily with regular nail polish remover. For this post I’m showing you the shades I had in the nude and pink categories.
Pinks and Corals

Couple’s Massage
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Couple's Massage Swatch
Unwind with this shimmery pastel peach
I did 2 coats and still found Couple’s Massage too sheer for me but it’d be really pretty as a french manicure.
Rosy Quartz
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Rosy Quartz Swatch
A crystallized classic pale pink
This was three coats. Three! I really don’t love polishes this sheer but I would wear this one if I didn’t want polish on but wanted something on my nails (I hate having nothing on them).
Pampered In Pink
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Pampered In Pink Swatch
Revitalize with this punchy pink
After two coats, this bright strawberry pink still had some slight visible nail line but I really love this shade for summer. It was my favourite of the three.

Nudes

Powder Room
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Powder Room Swatch
A ladylike pearlescent blushed nude
This one was a little runnier than the others and ended up pooling in my cuticles a bit but I think it’s a really nice polish.
Therapewter
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Therapewter Swatch
Meditate in a deep charcoal metallic
Two coats of Therapewter was stunning, especially in direct sunlight. I would never have put this in the nude category but I can see how that thought process went. Because this one has microglitter, it was a little harder to get off.
Blushed Petal
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Blushed Petal Swatch
Breathe it out in a botanical blush tone
I love this shade so much that I didn’t mind that three coats still left me with a little VNL. This was probably my favourite of the bunch.
Steely Serene
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Steely Serene Swatch
Get centered in a gorgeous greige
I had no notes on this one except that it was two coats, so I’m taking that as a sign that I liked it.
Chai On Life
Sally Hansen Color Therapy Chai On Life Swatch
A warm calming taupe
This was the closest any of these shades got to a one-coater but I went for two for more even coverage. While I loved it in person, I couldn’t get it to photograph well for the life of me. I would wear this one again though.

The rich tone shades are coming soon.
