Hi there everyone!!!I have the me Sally Hansen Salon manicure collection to share with you today. The new spring colour collection is a range of 6 pretty creme polishes and one glitter polish.
I have to say I was very impressed with the colour choices for this collection. It really feels like spring and not a red polish in sight!
OK so the formula..... it varies from polish to polish but in general the formula was great. I will comment on it with each colour. For all the polishes I used Sally Hansen Big Shiny Top Coat.
Let's check them out shall we??
Almost Almond- Is a sheer pale creme shimmer polish. The polish is almost peach in colour and has a frosted effect when worn. I used 4 coats for the swatches and I could still see a visible nail line. This polish is perfect if you just want a subtle shimmer on your nails. A very work appropriate colour.
Peach of cake- Is a beautiful peach/orange colour. The polish is very opaque and only took 2 coats for full coverage on the nail. This colour also stamped really well. I used it in another mani later on in this post.
Sheer Ecstasy- Is a really pale shade of pink. The colour is almost white. Like SH Almost almond needs many coats for opacity. I used 4 coats and I still have a VNL. once again very work appropriate.
Pink a card- Is a pale pink creme which is opaque in 3 coats. The colour also stamped quite well due to its opacity so I was very impressed considering on how pale the colour actually is.
I created some nail art over sheer ecstasy with some nail stamping and a fuzzy unicorn vinyl.

Barracuda- Is a very pale blue creme. The colour is stunning and on top of that it is very pigmented so I only needed 2 coats for full opacity. The cool colour of the polish made a perfect background for some stamping with SH water colour. such an awesome combo.

Water color- This was my favourite colour of the collection. I'm a sucker for blue at the best of times and this polish did not disappoint! The polish was almost a one coater it was so opaque! It also stamped fantastically as you have seen in the previous mani. An awesome polish all round!!!!!

Snow Globe- Is an amazing glitter mix of iridescent glitters. there is blue/green and orange/gold iridescent glitters. I found I only needed one coat of the glitter polish for a great coverage.
I also found that the glitters looks great over different polish colours.

The whole collection is great. I liked the variety of colours in the collection and the fact that 1/2 of the colours stamped with ease. Also I love the glitter polish as it is very versatile.
The new collection from Sally Hansen is available from most chemists, Priceline, and Target.
They retail for $14.95 each.
Until next time........
