Sally Hansen Spring 2011 Prabal Gurung Collection Swatches
I have another Spring Collection for you guys today! This collection is Prabal Gurung for Sally Hansen Spring 2011. Some of these shades have been spotted at the runway last year. I will feature the shades according to the press release group photo in the earlier post I have about it. Please note that I only have 5 of the 6 shades from this collection. I am missing the last one called Without A Stitch. Also, pelase excuse the state of my cuticles. The drastic change in weather is taking a toll on them.
First up is Paparazzi.
Described as a metallic taupe, Paparazzi is a gray frosty metallic shade. This was the one I liked least because of its finish. Anyone that knows me is very aware of my dislike of frosts. This one didn’t give me a very hard time at all during application though, which caught me completely by surprise. Brush strokes are visible still, but not bad at all. I didn’t have to redo my nails like I usually would with other frost shades. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Next shade up is Casting Call.
This pretty shade is aptly described as a strawberry mango. It’s a pink coral that applied smoothly on my nails. This shade makes me think of all things sweet like ice cream, shakes, icing, and juicy fruits. It’s perfect for both Spring and Summer! Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
This next shade took my breath away. Here is Model Behavior.
Described as a sky turquoise, Model Behavior is one of my favorites in this collection. This shade of blue makes me smile, even when it’s a creme shade! Cremes do not rank high on my list, but this one is definitely one of my favorites. Formula for this is nice and creamy. It applied on my nails smoothly like butter. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Next up is my favorite from this collection, Strike A Pose.
This shade is described as an opalescent pearl. All I know is I see a slight duochrome going on! LOVE! Instant love! I think it’s a pinkish lavender duochrome, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one. It actually reminds me of a Nubar duochrome shade I’ve seen before on another blog. Formula is a bit watery, but gave me no problems during application. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat. For a more opaque look, use thicker coats or add about 2 more thin coats.
And just cause this is my favorite shade in this collection, here’s a few more swatch pictures in an attempt to show the slight duochrome.
Last shade I have is a bold red. What kind of collection would it be without a red, right? Here is Runway Red-y.
The description of this shade, apple red, is spot on! I feel like biting into a juicy red apply seeing this shade. It’s a bold red creme that is classic and sleek. Formula for this is buttery smooth. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Again, I don’t have the last shade called Without A Stitch. Which ones of these will you be getting when it hits stores in May? The original anticipated release of this was in March, but I was told these will be in retail stores by May.
