Sally Hansen Fall 2014 Runway Collection-New York Fashion Week

While at Bed Bath & Beyond recently I stumbled across a display of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish, at first I thought this was from the spring 2014 Runway Collection but as I looked closer I noticed the shades were different from the spring collection. A quick Google search came up with nothing so I think its safe to say this is a new launch. The new Display is a Limited Edition display called Runway Collection New York Fashion Week.

It appears that there are fifteen shades in this collection: Glam Sequins: Five glitter top coats, Fall Pastels: Five light creams, and Dark Romance: Five darker shades some with shimmer.

In the display the shades are” left corner from left to right: Fall Pastels: Himalaya, In The Flesh, Cute-ture,Moulin Rose and Rhododendron, Front shades Dark Romance: from left to right: On the Mango, Somber Bliss, Ever Green, Dark Knight, and Ruper Red.

This blog is for the remaining five polishes in the collection.

I’ll start by saying you NEED these two glitter polishes in your life, for $1.99 each you can’t go wrong, they go on smooth, dry quick, look amazing, and last on the nail.

Fashion Queen-gold glitter polish with larger lighter gold glitter.

Rule the City-dark grey glitter polish with larger red hex glitter.

 

For the three remaining polishes they are part of the In a New York Color Minute Collection two shimmers, and one jelly all have two coats.

Crown Gold-gold shimmer polish-I can live without this shade in my life the formula is nice though.

 

Queen of the City-dark burgundy shimmer, this is an amazing shade, typically I do not go for darker polishes but this one is worth picking up.

 

Royal Chick, a brown jelly.

Glitter gradient with Royal Chick and Fashion Queen.

Sally Hansen Create & Ornate Royal Statements-Limited Edition Polish

I purchased six of the eight Limited Edition Polishes from the Create & Ornate Royal Statements Collection. This collection has a black nail art pen, a white and silver nail art polish, four Matte Effect, and four Glitter Effect polishes which are the Xtreme Wear polishes.

This display was found at CVS and were purchased as a buy one get one 50% off.

Here is a picture of the display:

I purchased the four Matte Effects: Chain Mail, Wax Poetic, Blue Blood, and Royal Shyness, then two of the four Glitter Effects: Mind Your Manors, and Court Jest, I did take photos of the other two (photos below) and they are called Rogue Red, and Family Jewels. Rogue Red is much like Rouge Rush just with more red than pink.

The Mattes reminded me of the Quick Dri Matte, click here for swatches, however these went on much easier and has the brush which I like. Each swatch has two coats.

The Glitter Effects are all a mix of shard glitter, these swatches have one coat and went on smooth, the top coat is thin unlike recent glitter top coats from Sally Hansen.

I purchased the new Limited Edition Fashion Queen Collection from CVS, the display had a $1.00 off coupon and were buy one get one 50% off, I purchased the entire collection for under $6.00.

There are nine shades in this collection, four jelly based Glitters: Ruby Queen, NY Princess, Blue Majesty, and Queen’s Jewels, two glitter based shades: Rule the City, and Fashion Queen and then three In a New York Color Minute formula: Royal Chic (jelly), Crown Gold (shimmer), and New York Color (shimmer).  All six glitters are labeled Crystal Couture.

These are not textured polishes they are simply glitter polishes.

For this blog I am going to focus on the four jelly based shades, these have two coats, went on smooth, dried fast and do not have a top coat, the formula is amazing!

Ruby Queen-red based jelly with medium Pink holo glitter and mini red glitter.

NY Princess-purple jelly with medium purple holo glitter and mini purple glitter.

Blue Majesty-teal jelly with a mix of medium and small light and dark teal glitter.

Queen’s Jewels-green jelly with a mix of medium and small light and dark green glitter.

I LOVE, LOVE,LOVE these glitters, they are a must have in the collection, so if you are a polish fan or you know someone who is get out and make a purchase, if you can only grab a few definitely pick up NY Princess, and Ruby Queen they are at the top of my favorites in this grouping.
