I adore Sally Hansen Salon nail polish. Simply put, it is the best and longest wearing lacquer that I have used. That it is relatively inexpensive and easy to find is also a bonus.
The line is also full of great shades. Those are easy to get, but they also have a harder to find (unfortunately very hard to find at times) limited edition line from designer Tracy Reese. I tried out a selection of shades from the Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Salon Fall 2008 Collection, and they are amazing! Below are two of my favorites that fit in perfectly with this fall and winter’s trend of purple and plum nails.
The shade Night Lily (above) is a neat fuscia plum shade, and is my favorite of the collection. The polish looks more red in this picture than it really is though.
The shade Alchemy (above) looks much more purple and shimmery in the bottle than it does on the nails. The shimmer is very subtle and the shade is nicely dark and muted. It is different from the other purple nail polishes that I have tried this fall and I adore it!
There are more interesting shades in the line and I will do some future posts on them. For a nice set of swatches of the full line, also take a look at Michelle’s coverage of them at All Lacquered Up.
My best luck at finding the Tracy Reese shades has been at ULTA Beauty stores. I recently found some from the spring 2008 collection still in stock at the one in Naperville Illinois, along with a few from the fall 2008 collection.
