Originally I was only interested in two of the polishes from this collection. Then I thought (as they began to appear on the shelves of “we only ever have things out four months after whenever these were supposed to release” drugstores near me) “Well, maybe a few more.” And some backups of one of the first colors that I got, because it looked a lot better than I thought it would.

Thus do these things spiral out of control. Every. Single. Time.

Sally Hansen’s Fall 2014 Complete Salon Manicure Runway Trends collection

This was broken up into three groups, a bit like the Spring 2014 Runway Trends was. Each had their own distinct palette and theme. I stayed completely away from the Glam Sequins polishes because of personal preference - I've never been a big fan of glitter polishes - but got all but two of the other shades.

This collecion included:

Fall Pastels

  • Cute-ture — bright-ish pink creme
  • Himalaya — pale beige-cream creme (collaboration with Prabal Gurung)
  • In the Flesh — palest pink creme
  • On the Mango — bright orange creme
  • Somber Bliss — medium grey shimmer (collaboration with Tracy Reese)

Glam Sequins

  • Chili Flakes — clear with gold, silver, copper and red mylar-shards (collaboration with Tracy Reese)
  • Golden Rust — sheer amber with copper, pink gold, and red hexagons and microglitter (collaboration with Rodarte)
  • Pink Dream — orange-clear with iridescent-pastel hexagons and microglitter (collaboration with Rodarte)
  • Shattered Stars — clear with silver mylar-shards (collaboration with Tracy Reese)
  • Vintage Confetti — clear base with mylar-shards, hexagonal glitter, microglitter and bar glitter

Dark Romance

  • Dark Knight — navy blue creme
  • Ever Green — deep olive-evergreen creme
  • Moulin Rose — medium-deep rose shimmer
  • Rhododendron — deep raspberry-rose creme (collaboration with Prabal Gurung)
  • Rupee Red — dark red creme (collaboration with Prabal Gurung)

Dark Knight and Ever Green are similar to two of the shades that have been recently added to the regular CSM lineup (Dark Huemor and On Pines and Needles, respectively) but they're not quite exact dupes. Dark Knight is just barely brighter; and Ever Green leans slightly warmer than On Pines and Needles.
