Sally Hansen Designer Collection Spring 2013- Butterscotch and Soy Latte

Good morning everyone! Today I am back with, yet again, more polishes from the Sally Hansen Designer Collection for Spring 2013. Be sure to check out Green Tea and Resurrection here as well as Dune and Angel Bite here.  These are the last 2 (for now) that I have. I have loved all the polishes from this collection so far and I'm loving these two as well!

Butterscotch is a bright, sunny yellow creme. The formula on this was FANTASTIC! 2 easy coats. Yellows are notoriously streaky and hard to work with, but I had zero problems with this. This is for sure my new go to yellow! Perfect for spring and summer. This is by designer Tracy Reese.

Essie Chinchilly

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great day! :) Today I am posting one of my all time favorite polishes, Essie Chinchilly.

Chinchilly is a light gray creme. This is 3 thin coats, 2 thicker ones is usually okay. I really love this polish. You have no idea! My bottle is about half full from using it so much! :) This is the polish that started my love affair with Essie so its pretty darn special.

ABC Challenge U is for Petites Utopia

Hello lovely ladies! Today we are making our way towards the end of the ABC Challenge (oh no!) and we are on letter U. I think that I only have a couple U polishes in my collection and this one was untried so I decided to go for this.

This beauty is Petites Utopia. Petites is a brand sold (exclusively, I think) at Rite Aid. The bottles are super tiny and they are definitely something that most people would walk right by. I did so many times and somehow this one came home with me one time. 6 months (?!) passed and I never tried it. No idea why I waited so long, because this is beautiful.

Utopia is a teal glass fleck in a jelly base. This was 4 coats and still tons of nail line visible, which I felt was disappointing.

Hard Candy Black Tie Optional

Hi again guys! I have a huge slight obsession with black and white. So I knew I needed this glitter right when I started seeing swatches of it.

Hard Candy Black Tie Optional is a black and white glitter containing large, medium, and small black and white hexes along with black bar glitter. It is definitely a layering glitter. I decided to wear this over Essie Bottle Service from this summer's neons collection (review coming soon!).

Sally Hansen Designer Collection Spring 2013- Dune and Angel Bite

Happy Memorial Day everyone!!

Today I'm back with more polishes from Sally Hansen's Designer Collection. What can I say, I'm really loving this collection. I reviewed Green Tea and Resurrection here so be sure to check those out as well!

First up is Angel Bite, a deep vampy red crelly. The formula on this was pretty good... a bit thin but not bad by any means. Totally opaque in two coats. I liked this a lot, surprisingly. Even though it is totally not springy, I think its great. It did look a bit brown in the shade, which I thought was kind of odd, but it never looked black and you could definitely tell it was red in the sun. Also, no staining! This one is by designer Prabal Gurung. For all you fashionistas, this was the shade used in her Spring 2013 fashion show for the blood drip manicures on all the models.

Sally Hansen Resurrection and Green Tea- Spring 2013 Designer Collection

Happy weekend, lovelies! Today I have two really pretty polishes to show you guys! One is a blue which totally surprises me, but I am totally in love.These are both LE polish from the Spring 2013 Designer Collection. Resurrection is by designer Prabal Gurung and Green Tea is by Tracy Reese. Sally Hansen does a designer collection every so often and I always love their polishes. Some of these are rereleases (pretty sure Green Tea is one of them). These two are both really beautiful, I may be going back for a couple others (Dune, Butterscotch, Angel Bite, and possibly White Out). There are also a few others in the collection called First Kiss, Soy Latte, Apparition, and Hot Lava for a total of 10 shades! There really is something for everyone. You can see bottle shots and display shots at Nouveau Cheap.

This beauty is Sally Hansen Resurrection  from the Complete Salon Manicure line. Totally opaque in one coat, but this is two out of habit. The formula on this was fantastic. One of the best I've used all year! Seriously though. If you like grayed out blues then you need this. You all know how I love my grays so this is perfect for me. I wore this with an accent of Sally Hansen Shoot the Moon which is part of their permanent line.
