SALLY HANSEN Triple Shine Part I : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! This afternoon, I have for you my very first polish review for Sally Hansen! Along with a few nail art pens and nail treatments, such as the wonderful Cuticle Rehab which I reviewed HERE, I was also sent lovely selection of polishes from their brand-new Triple Shine collection, as well as their new Triple Shine Top Coat. Since the selection of polishes were of such a varied range of finishes, I had a hard time figuring out how exactly I wanted to show them off to you but I finally decided that this first post would focus on the cremes and crellies while the next post would focus on shimmers and sheers!

Before we get into swatches, I'd like to mention that the formula of these cremes were really nice--most of them were opaque at 2 coats and quite nicely self-leveling, although a couple colors looked best with 3 thin coats, which I've mentioned below. All the swatches below have been topped with one thin coat of Sally Hansen's new Triple Shine Top Coat, shown below. I must admit, though, that I was really rather concerned about the brush that each of these polishes come with--it's a thick, wide brush, angled slightly in the center. But I'm happy to report that these brushes actually help, rather than hinder, application--it allows you to get close to the cuticle without making a mess! Very impressed!

Alrighty then, let's take a look at swatches, shall we?

Red Snapper is a warm strawberry red crelly with orange undertones. This, being a slightly thinner formula, required 3 generous coats. I absolutely love this shade of red! So sexy!

Kelp Out is a bright green creme. As you know, I'm not a big fan of green but this is a great shade for all you green-lovers out there!

Vanity Flare is a dusty purple creme. Completely opaque in 2 coats, depending on how you paint, you could even get away with one! One of my faves!

Sparks Fly is a slightly blue-tinted, glitter topcoat full of silver microglitter and silver hexes in various sizes. The swatches below show 2 smooth coats over Vanity Flare above and 1 coat of Triple Shine Top Coat to bring it all together. If you don't mind a bit of visible nail line, this actually looks gorgeous with just 3 generous coats by itself too!

Statemint is a shockingly bright chatreuse creme--not quite green but not quite yellow! A shade just a tad shy from neon and totally perfect for summer!

If you would like to pick up any of these summer-ready products yourself, you can find it at your local CVS, RiteAid, Walgreens, Walmart, Kmart or Ulta (among other fine retailers) for the price of $4.99 (prices may vary in different states) .
