Sally Hansen Fall 2011 Tracy Reese Collection Swatches
About this collection: “Tracy Reese joined forces with Sally Hansen for the eleventh consecutive season to create six bold shades and rich metallics that mirror the designer’s opulent fall aesthetic. On the runway, models wore Complete Salon Manicure in Shiny Penny, a rich bronze, and Oxide, a gunmetal grey.”
First up, I have Oxide.
Um, no words can describe how I feel about this silver grey shade. Oxide, oh Oxide. It’s my favorite from this whole collection. It’s stunning, classy and beautiful. Formula was great and dried fast. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Next up is Shiny Penny.
Can this be any prettier? Shiny Penny reminds me a bit of Deborah Lippmann Brick House. It’s a beautiful bronze that suits Fall very well. It applied onto my nails smoothly and dried pretty fast. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
A collection isn’t complete without a beautiful blue. This one’s called Himalayan Blue.
Himalayan Blue is a pretty blue creme shade, but that’s about it. It applies beautifully, but there’s nothing that sets it apart from a lot of beautiful blue cremes I’ve seen. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Next we have Bewitched.
I keep thinking the name is odd because it’s close to Halloween. Bewitched is a dark plum purple creme shade. I consider this a very dark, vampy shade. It makes me think of dark purple bruises. Formula is nice and thick. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
Last I have is Green Tea.
Green Tea is a beautiful pale green, not quite mint green. It reminds me of the popular Essie Mint Candy Apple, but I don’t think they’re close enough to be dupes at all. Formula was great with this creme shade. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat. I think I swatched Shiny Penny before this cause it left a yellow-ish cast on my cuticle area.
Overall? Nice,well-rounded collection. A few shades seem out-of-place for Fall, but I can overlook that with the variety given. I’m missing one shade from this collection called Radicchio. This should be available at wherever Sally Hansen is retailed in October.
