When I was checking out the new Estee Lauder spring collection I was drawn to the coral color (Coral Cult), but I thought it seemed too close to an old Sally Hansen to justify buying. So I pulled out Sally Hansen’s Coral Fever to check.
I tried out a new combination with Dior Lime – I used a base of Sally Hansen Malt for a “y-gap” manicure, a design used by U.K. nail celebrity Sophy Robson.
It seems too early for a Halloween polish, but it appears that Sally Hansen’s new Pumpkin Spice is just that. Maybe it’s more of a general fall polish? But with “pumpkin” in the name, and orange glitter in the bottle, it makes me think of fake cobwebs and white plastic vampire teeth.
These polishes are part of the Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen collection, and are inspired by Tracy Reese’s runway shows. I picked mine up at a random WalGreen’s I don’t usually visit because they sold out so quickly at the WalGreen’s close to me-especially the bright coral, Coral Fever.
I know these polishes have been out for a while. I bought them back in October when I was doing some business travel, but I just saw them again at the WalGreen’s down the street from our house, so I thought I would swatch them while they’re still available.
I started with Mystic Lilac, and only after I painted it on did I remember the problem with this one: it’s pretty sheer. Continue reading Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mystic Lilac and Concrete: Best Together
I just found a new Sally Hansen display when I was in WalGreen’s, for the Nailgrowth Miracle line. A lot of the colors seemed to be … brownish. Seriously, it seemed like there was a lot of taupe-y going on. Gentle Blossom definitely stood out as the most spring-like and vibrant, although I think there was also a kind of lavender color, too. At first I hesitated and put this one down, but it has an interesting shimmer that made me come back for it. Keep reading for swatches!
