Sally Hansen Tahiti Sunset Limited Edition Collection

I received six polishes from the Sally Hansen Tahiti Sunset Collection which is a Limited Edition Collection! The collection is part of the Triple Shine Nail Color and consist of three creams: Pink Coconut, Tahiti, Seasational and three glitters: Changing Tides, Sparktacular, and Achipela-glow

Below is a shot of the color line up and a few swatches! I do plan on uploading all swatches by the end of this week. This collection is set to launch around June and will retail for $4.99 per bottle.

So far this collection is amazing!

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish

 

Sally Hansen sent me six bottles of the newly launched Triple Shine nail polish. These polishes have hit most major drug stores and have been found at Target. The polish is available in 29 shades, the shades range from cremes, metallics to glitters and a top coat.

A few things you will notice right off are the many shade choices and of course the bottle shape. I like the bottle shape it is good for storage, the top pops off and gives you a nice handle to hold, the brush in this line is the same brush found in the Complete Salon Manicure collection. I was a little bummed to find they didn’t use a more streamlined brush to go with the bottle shape, but then again I’m not a fan of wide polish brushes!

The six shades that were sent to me are Play Koi, Kelp Out, Vanity Flare, Sparks Fly, Pearly Whites, and Twinkled Pink. All swatches have two coats and no top coat.

Play Koi is a bright creme orange which I love, this shade is great for the fingers or the toes.

Kelp Out is a creme green, I’m not a fan of green polish but this is nice.

Vanity Flare is a beautiful purple creme.

For the glitter swatches I did them over color and two by themselves so you can see the jelly base.

This is Sparks Fly over Vanity Flare, this is a blue jelly base with small silver and blue glitter with a combo of large and small hex glitter in silver. This is a polish I see in the store and think I must have this thankfully I already do and you should too!

Pearly Whites is a iridescent glitter with iridescent flakes, the base is goopy.

Twinkled Pink is a pink jelly base with silver and gold glitter mixed with silver and gold hex glitter, this polish gives off an amazing gold glow. The swatch is over Play Koi and the glitter placement is from the hex glitter in the bottle, the two end fingers have one coat. This is another must have for the collection.

This swatch is so you can see the jelly base in both Sparks Fly, and Twinkle Pink, the swatches are over a white base coat and have two coats each!

Sally Hansen Salon effects Glitz Blitz!

Sally Hansen sent me some of their Salon effects Real Nail Polish Strips to try. I was slightly curious about nail strips but had a few doubts on them such as fitting my nails, hard to put on, and quick chipping…..boy was I wrong!

I was able to put these nails polish strips on in no time and they came in different sizes so they fit all of my nails!!

There are 16 nail polish strips, a cuticle stick, and a small nail file in each box.

To use the strips
Select the strips that match with your nails best
Start with clean nails
Push back your cuticles with the cuticle stick
Shape your nails with the file
Swipe each nail with polish remover to remove any oils or polish
Place the best fitting strip onto the nail
Shape and smooth the nail edge with the nail file

Surprisingly these nails strips work well, I abuse my nails everyday with a keyboard, dinner dishes and normal wear and tear, they have held up much better than I had anticipated. This product is something I would use again!

Salon effects can be found at most drugstore retailer and will sell for $9.99 each. Be sure to give them a try.

New Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Winter 2013!

I purchased two bottles of the new Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear nail polish. Right off I noticed the text on the bottles has changed, it is much more pronounced. The two polishes I picked up are Blue Boom and Sea-ing Stars.

Each swatch has three coats; Sea-ing Stars is a little sticky right out of the bottle but does go on smooth, when adding another coat be sure the prior one is completely dried to avoid a sticky mistake.

Blue Boom-is amazing, a blue jelly with holographic glitter and holographic bar glitter, this blue is delicious and definitely delivers a BOOM look!

Sea-ing Stars-a light aqua jelly with multi size holographic glitter.

Sally Hansen Holiday 2013 Bling in the New Year!

I purchased four new Complete Salon Manicure polishes from Sally Hansen; the four polishes are part of Sally Hansen’s Holiday 2013 Bling in the New Year Collection. Some of these polishes are reissues, the four I purchased are new, they are called Twinkle Toes-ty, 3, 2, 1derland, Midnight, Glitz and Fa-la-la-lavender. These were found at CVS and I was able to pick up four polishes for the price of two because Sally Hansen placed a coupon for buy one get one free on the display!

This review is on Twinkle Toes-ty and 3, 2,1derland. I used a base color under each swatch the name will be noted with the photo. When I posted the swatch for 3,2, 1derland on Instagram some thought it was a duplicate of Mermaids Tale, it is similar but different. You can see my review on Mermaids Tale here, the difference between these two polishes are that Mermaids Tale is a navy jelly base with more teal and less green glitter where 3,2,1derland is a clear base with green and teal multi-sized hex glitter that is more green than teal. These polishes have a wider brush which I am not a fan of.

Display with coupon!

Twinkle Toes-ty- on a base from Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear called Red Carpet, the polish is a clear base with multi-sized gold holographic hex glitter. Each nail has three coats.

3,2,1derland- on a base from Sally Hansen lustre shine called Moonstone, I took one photo outside and one inside so you can see the difference, the ring finger has three coats and the other fingers are a sponge gradient.

Sally Hansen Fall 2013 Insta-Dri!

I received three Limited Edition Insta-Dri polishes from Sally Hansen; the three colors they sent are from their Fall 2013 Rent The Runway release and are called No S-pear Time, Chop Chop Copper and Quick Jeanius.

The polish is fantastic; it goes on smooth with the Perfectionist Brush. This is a quick dry high shine polish and will dry in 60 seconds with a metallic finish. These deep fall colors are a nice addition to the collection, if you are a little reluctant to purchase darker shades I understand but will say these are great as they do not stain your nails or cuticles like many other blue and green polishes will.

Each swatch has a clear base coat and no top coat. I applied one coat with No S-pear Time and Quick Jenious, Chop Chop Copper needed three coats.

No S-pear Time- a delicious olive green with a silver metallic fleck

Chop Chop Copper-do not let the bottle fool you, this polish goes on lighter than you expect it to, you will need at least three coats to obtain a deep color on the nails, the end result is a copper with pink micro glitter.

Quick Jeanious- a beautiful deep blue with silver metallic fleck, I was not a fan of dark blue polish until now.

Fall 2013 Sally Hansen Limited Edition Xtreme Wear Glitter Polish

Here are two more swatches of the Sally Hansen Limited Edition Glitter polish for Fall 2013. I LOVE this collection so much! I have always been a fan of Sally Hansen and can honestly say they perfected this collection!
These two swatches are Sea-ly String and Confetti Punch. Both are fun and packed full of glitter!

For a base I used Sally Hansen Maximum Strength base coat, both have three coats of polish and no top coat, and for those wondering NO it does not get caught in hair or on clothes! I have hair to the middle of my back and have had no problems with this collection as of yet!

Sea-ly String is a jelly blue base with a mix of small and large regular and hex glitter in black, silver and blue with black bar glitter. this photo does no justice for the polish!

Confetti Punch is a jelly base that is rose in color and its packed full of mini pink glitter then multi sized hex glitter in blue, gold and pink.
