Sally Hansen Color Therapy Swatches and Review

I'm excited to share a line from Sally Hansen that launched this summer - Color Therapy. These polishes are designed to be long-wearing and to also treat nails with argan oil. I have to say I am pretty excited when I see new products offered by Sally Hansen - I've been using their polishes for over 30 years and my collection fills more than a whole Ikea Helmer storage unit!
