Time to give some props, I think, to the polish that sits under every manicure I suffer my nails through. Introducing… the fabulous Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base and Top Coat.
Like all good base coats, it leaves my nails with a gorgeous shine. It also dries lightning fast.
It’s more durable than most base coats I’ve tried. However, if worn on its own, it tends to chip easily. Then again, it’s not designed to be worn on its own.
As a top coat, I’m not quite convinced. The formula is medium-thick and can get gloopy. When I’ve worn it as a top coat, it hasn’t added much. The thickness of it tends to mitigate the shine, rather than enhance it.
Overall, however, I love it! And I will definitely be seeing this bottle through ’til the bitter, crusty, gloopy end…
