Today, I’m reviewing a red nail paint! Yes, red! I’m not someone who usually wears red; in fact I barely wear red but it’s one such color that I think every girl should have in her makeup stash. So I bought a red nail paint from none other than Sally Hansen’s Maximum Growth range, a couple of months ago and here I am with its review. Read on to know more about Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Plus Nourishing Nail Colour in the shade Cherry Charisma.

My Experience with Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Plus Nourishing Nail Colour – Cherry Charisma:
Packaging: Packaging wise, this nail paint is rather simple and traditional. It comes in an ordinary-looking glass bottle with a metallic brush handle. It has a thin brush but the quality of brushes of Sally Hansen nail paints is like none other; the bristles are smooth and the brush is slightly curved at the edges which eases the application as well as avoids any nail paint touching the cuticles. Another redeeming thing about the packaging is that all the ingredients are clearly mentioned on the back of the bottle.
Shade: Cherry Charisma, like the name suggests, is a deep cherry red color. It is not a blood red nail paint which can often look scary, it is rather a cool toned cherry red shade. So, people who are intimidated by red nail paints (like I am), can really give this nail paint a try. It looks stunning when applied and in fact, it even makes my hands look fairer than usual. The nail paint has a sheen in it and this sheen remains intact until the nail paint is removed completely.
Texture: Many of you who read my reviews on nail paints would be wondering why I only ever review Sally Hansen nail paints? The answer is simple- because I only buy Sally Hansen! The reason is that the texture of Sally Hansen nail paints is really unmatchable. It is smooth, though, a little runny in texture too but I’m not complaining. It does not feel heavy on the nails and nor does it leave that ugly stain behind that most red nail paints leave. The color payoff is excellent. In the swatch, have literally used just one coat of this nail paint and with no base or top coat. The nail paint stays on my nails for a good 5 days and then it starts chipping. As for the claim about nail growth, I can’t really comment anything as my natural nail growth itself is pretty good.
Pros of Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Plus Nourishing Nail Colour – Cherry Charisma:
• All the ingredients are clearly mentioned at the back of the nail paint bottle.
• Value for money nail paint.
• Beautiful cherry red nail paint.
• Smooth in texture.
• Stays on for about 5 days without any major chipping.
• The shine does not fade even after 3-4 days.

Cons of Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Plus Nourishing Nail Colour – Cherry Charisma:
• Availability in most parts of India.
• Kind of runny and sloppy.
• Takes around 2-3 minutes to dry (I prefer quick dry nail paints).
