The Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Salon Collection Spring 2008 has caught my attention for its vivid earthy tones, pinks, purples and reds. Most of the colors are on-trend, and quite wearable. In Tracy Reese's runway show Spring '08, all the models wore Tunisian Sand, which is a pearly beige nude shade. I was tempted to buy this sunny color in the store. As a pink nail color lover, I still dashed out to take Sumptuous Petal. From the bottle, it looks as of a vibrant cherry pink with coral undertones. It has a very sheer consistency. With a coat, the finish is so sheerly cute that it reminds me of the pink nail polishes I played in childhood. Sumptuous Petal is layerable. The brush applicator does a good job gliding on nails. I like to apply it with at least three coats. The pink becomes more pigmented and more to the intense cherry pink. It creates a sheerly opaque, jelly-like and glossy shine finish. It is very girly!
I found Sally Hansen in Sumptuous Petal does not dry quickly. It is still wet 10 minutes after it is applied with three to four coats. I have to sit still without much movement for half hour to avoid messy or scratched marks. When it dries, the color looks gorgeous and lasts well. Even without topcoat, it does not chip or peels easily. I also found the nail color is easy to be removed.
Sally Hansen nail polishes contain no DBP, Toluene or Formaldehyde. With a taste of fashion, Sally Hansen's Salon Collection costs only $5.99 per bottle at the local drugstores.
