Sally Hansen collection with Natalie B Coleman, photos, swatches, review!

Ah Sally Hansen, you have my heart with this six strong collection of spring hues and darker shades for those of us who aren't quite ready to don brighter nails.  They've teamed up with designer Natalie B Coleman to create this collection to go alongside her Spring Summer 2015 collection.  So last weekend when it was lovely and sunny, I took myself out the back garden to take some photos!

Peach of Cake

I don't need to tell you that I love anything peach or coral when it comes to makeup and nails.  So Peach of Cake was my immediate favourite and the one I reached for first.  This shade teeters on the edge of being neon and I know I'll get lots of wear out of it, especially when I have a bit of a tan and when I'm brave enough to wear something white without the fear I'll spill something on it.  Two coats will do you for real life but for the purpose of these photos, it shows three because I could see a little bit of my nails with two coats.


Enchante is one of those dusky pink shades that's perfect for everyday wear.  It's one of those polishes that has a brown undertone to it, so if you're over the Kylie Jenner 70s inspired lip, then take a bit of inspiration from her and give the 70s nail a go!

SGT Preppy

SGT Preppy is one of those must have spring shades, a bright pink with purple undertones to it.  Of all the shades in the collection, it was the one that was the most dupable and I have a few like this in my stash.  Then again, I have a lot of polishes, so if you're looking for something spring appropriate that'll add some colour to your ensemble, then check it out!  Again, this was a three coater for the photos, but I'd be happy with two.


Moheato was the polish that knocked me upside the head when I applied it on the nails.  In the bottle, it just looks like an unassuming green polish, but on the nails it's almost neon and is as tropical as it comes!  This with a coral handbag and a glass of sangria in my hand is what my holiday will be about I tell you!

Belle of the Ball

Belle of the ball immediately reminded me of Bourjois' Violine Hypnotique and I am obsessed with it.  The first coat is pretty uninspiring and the blue tones are the most prevalent, but that second coat... Oh that's when it becomes this rich burgundy, purpley shade that I'll be wearing all year round.  The really fine shimmer running through it adds a depth and dimension that will have you staring at your nails.  Fact.


Fans of a deep inky midnight blue polish will love Nightwatch.  The glossy finish on these polishes are gorgeous, but with this one, it makes it look like my nails are wet!  For the sophisticated folks out there, this is one worth checking out, but make sure to apply a base coat because this puppy will stain your nails.  I feel like Nightwatch is this year's Essie's Boy Blazer.

The collection is in shops now and will set you back at €8.99 a bottle.  Once again, Sally Hansen have come up trumps with a beautiful collection!
