Sally Hansen's Newest Launch Isn't Like Any Other Polish Out There

When it comes to nail polish, most of the focus is centered around how long a color lasts before chipping. Rarely do we learn about cutting-edge ingredients or new breakthrough formulations. That's why Sally Hansen's soon-to-launch Color Therapy line is actually one of the most innovative nail product launches we've seen. What sets this line apart is a proprietary blend of argan oil, acai and evening primrose oil that is infused right into the color polish. The result? A formula that is more conditioning, hydrating and nourishing for nails.

According to Color Therapy's advertising claims, the polishes infuse nails with "instant moisture" and "intensive nourishment" while providing up to 10 days of chip-resistant wear. Sally Hansen's vice president of global marketing, Jeremy Lowenstein, tells WWD that the product was conceived because the brand saw a demand in the market. “Color Therapy was inspired by ‘her’ telling us that while she’s hard on her nails and needs a break from polish-wear, she doesn’t want to go a day without color because they look dull." WWD also notes that market research shows that the demand for nail care and healthier nail color options are on the rise, up 5 percent this year from last.

For consumers, this means we can finally stop feeling guilty about not giving our nails a break in between polish changes. The line features 38 different shades across three categories—rich tones, pinks and corals, and nudes—and will be in stores in November.

    Sally, over all I enjoy your products. I am someone who does her nails on a regular bases, I am 69, a former Make-Artist and have Really tried to keep an open mind about new things. COLOR THERAPY NAILS really grabbed my attention and the colors seemed catch my eyes. So, I purchased one and liked what happened. I thought it was a great idea to have a polish that enriched natural nails. But on me it was gummy even after drying, even though it was 7 hours later. Kind of sticky ,I used 2 coats. Well I am sorry it did not work for me, but I hope it will please other customers.
