It's Official: These Are the Best Sally Hansen Nail Polishes

Updated 10/25/18

Every time I get a manicure, I'm faced with a critical choice: Do I choose a shade that's within the typical baby-pink range I usually pick, or do I branch out and try something new? It's a tale as old as time, really. More often than not, I stare longingly at the deep red and rich emerald polishes—I may even take one or two of them to the manicure chair to decide later—before going with some iteration of light pink. That sometimes gets a little, well, old.

If that sounds #relatable, consider this list of the best-selling Sally Hansen nail polishes your inspo for branching out. The brand boasts over 300 shades, but these 10 are the top sellers. From creamy whites to bold red to fan-favorite light pink, these are the ten Sally Hansen nail polishes buyers have deemed "the best."
