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

I remember seeing photographs of these polishes - or some of them, at least - last fall. The individual subsets looked good, but taken all together they didn’t seem to mesh well. You have the carnival-brights from Tracy Reese; Prabal Gurung’s pastels could potentially be their complement. But add in Rodarte’s deep, saturated shades, and things get a little thrown off. This collection was visually divided into three distinct “groups”, though: Dark Diversion, Havana Brights, and Pastel Chic.

The formulas are evenly divided between "pitch perfect" and "little thin" or "little chalky." Batbano Blue is the only non-creme in the collection, and I needed three coats to get even coverage. I should have also used a third coat on Mojito, and possibly Clay. A few of the colors are, in retrospect, not the best choice for me - but that's not the fault of the formula, just the shade.

This collection contained:

  • A New Hue — bright candied red creme (collaboration with Rodarte)
  • A Wink of Pink — white-pink creme (collaboration with Prabal Gurung)
  • At First Blush — medium-light pink creme (collaboration with...unknown. Maybe this was a last-minute substitution?)
  • Batbano Blue — medium-bright sapphire micro-sparkle (collaboration with Tracy Reese)
  • Carnevale — near-neon red-orange creme (collaboration with Tracy Reese)
  • Cinnamon — dark brown creme (collaboration with Rodarte)
  • Clay — terracotta brown creme (collaboration with Rodarte)
  • Lady Lavender — medium lavender creme (collaboration with Prabal Gurung)
  • Mint Condition — pastel green creme (collaboration with Prabal Gurung)
  • Mojito — light-medium green creme (collaboration with Tracy Reese)
