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.

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.

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.
