How are you doing today? I am here to review a nail paint from Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength range. We all love bubbly pink color, don’t we? I am also fond of bubbly baby pink colors and hence when I noticed this sparkling diamond pink shade in the stores, I could not resist my urge to grab it. I am happy that I picked it for it is such a happy-go-lucky shade which goes with any outfit, any weather and every occasion – any day/night party/casual occasion. Needless to say, it is getting my love and attention these days over pinks and glittery nail colors. So, please read on further to know more about Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color in Pink Promise.
$5-$8 for 0.45 Fl Oz (13.3 ml), price may vary from store to store.
- Up to 10 day protection from breaking, splitting and cracking.
- Infused with real micro-diamonds and platinum.

I totally love its unique yet simple packaging. This glittery nail color comes in a transparent glass packaging with cute little diamonds embossed on the chest of bottle which is attractive and USP of its packaging. The brush applicator is also sleek and apt for coloring broad/short or big/narrow nails at once. I am pretty happy and impressed with its brush applicator and overall user-friendly and travel-friendly packaging.
My Experience with Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color – Pink Promise:
As the name suggests, “Pink Promise,” it keeps its promise and gives full flush of bubbly baby pink with silver/diamond glitters on my nails though it is slightly sheer and in two to three coats, it gives a slightly opaque coverage, but still, it won’t give full opaque coverage. However, it is quite impressive to see that we can build it up to medium coverage with 2-3 swipes without looking streaky, goopy or feathering. Yes gals, it does not give a streaky finish on the nails and dries up pretty fast. I do love the subtle pink and glittery finish on the nails. I usually swipe it twice for medium coverage plus shining glossy pink nails which totally adds glam factor to any of my outfit irrespective of scorching summers while it gives me quite romantic feel on cloudy days.
I am sure this bubbly pink will look good on all skin tones – including fair/medium and also darker skin tones as well. It does not make my hands darker and certainly helps in making me appear younger, like any pink beauty product. The texture of nail color is perfect, neither too watery or thick. It easily layers on my nails and dries pretty quick. I am also amazed by its “no chip” quality which is true up to some extent though I won’t say it stays put for 10 days exactly.
I noticed slight chipping after a week and it is pretty good though not comparable to what it claims. Yes gals, it will stay intact with that shiny, glossy finish for up to 6-7 days and after that, it might chip from the corners, but it will still stay put for 7+ days provided we take good care of nails. My nails tend to grow fast, but they often peel off and so does my nail color, you know what I mean? I really don’t know about true diamonds and platinum in this nail color, but the glitters definitely look great yet subtle and they do not shout out loud or cheap on my nails. I am not into glitter makeup much, but I love my glitter nails. Do I need to say more about how much I adore this shade and nail paint? I definitely recommend this shade to every glitter lover gal.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color – Pink Promise:
- A gorgeous bubbly pink nail color with decent glitter which totally adds glam factor without overpowering the baby pink shade.
- It gives a neat and clean finish on the nails even with tons of silver sparkles and looks pretty awesome.
- Does give a sheer coverage with flush of pink shade with one swipe which can be easily worn alone or topped over any plain nail color.
- Easily buildable up to 2-3 swipes without any streaky or feathery finish.
- Easily removable with nail color remover and does not leave any stain or patch behind.
- Stays put for 6-7 days and thereafter chips and peels a bit from the corner of the nails.
- Shine and glossy finish also stays put for 6-7 days.
- Dries pretty fast.
- Unique, cute, user friendly and travel-friendly packaging.
Cons of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color – Pink Promise:
- Does not give full coverage even with multiple swipes.
- Its 10 days “no chipping” claims are not exactly true.
Well, apart from these minor cons, I don’t regret my purchase. I love this nail color over the usual pinks honestly. Often our brittle nails contribute to chipping and peeling of nail colors, hence I would blame my nails and not the shade. However, if you are not into sheer nail colors, then this is not for you though you can still achieve medium color payoff with multiple swipes. I love it for its sheer coverage as it can be easily be topped over any boring nail color to jazz it up without compromising its original shade and this is certainly going to live in my vanity kit forever.
I would like to give it 4.8/5!
