Hi loves! This week has FLOWN by for me. I feel like Thanksgiving was yesterday but it was a whole week ago! And I’m sure I will blink and Christmas will be here. This year is coming to an end. I’m ready for 2018!! Are you? Today I’m sharing a few new stunning, beautiful shades by Sally Hansen.
Sally Hansen recently re-vamped the INSTA-DRI font on their bottles and I must say I LOVE it! The new font logo looks so much more sleek and pretty! Here is a side by side comparison of the old vs. the new.
I first spotted these pretties at Bed, Bath & Beyond and then at ULTA. I’ve also seen them at Walgreens and Walmart, so they are making their way to most retailers by now. ULTA had a sale on these when I was there the other day and they were buy 1 get 1 50% off so I grabbed a few. These grey shades drew me in and I just had to get them.
They are sooo gorgeous! Some of these are new shades and others are older shades already in their core line. Let’s take a look at each one.
THYME IS MONEY
This is a dusty sage green creme. Errrrmerrrgerdddd is that even a word? It’s what the kids say now a days right?! I don’t even know how to describe this beauty. She is STUUUHHHHNINGGGG. There I go again with the multiple letters. All I can say is you need this. Now! The formula is delicious, buttery and smooth AND she’s a one coat wonder. It was love at first swatch for me!!
SEIZE THE GRAY
This is a dove gray creme. So pigmented and yummy! Another amazing formula, smooth and sleek. This wasn’t opaque in 1 coat, so I did 2 coats here. I love grays so much and this one is just perfect. I would wear this during Winter time (even though there is no real Winter in Miami, but we can pretend for the sake of my nails).
This is a cement gray creme. Gorge!! Almost opaque in 1 coat but I did 2 for full opacity. Love this so much! These swatches are giving me 50 Shades of Grey vibes, right?!
This is a delicious charcoal gray creme. I thought this one was going to be opaque in 1 coat, but it was too watery. 2 coats did the trick though. It applies well and glides on the nail.
I must admit that this line by Sally Hansen never really caught my eye until now. This revamping of their font and logo is a plus in my book! Who knew making a font italicized would make it look so much better. I want to buy all of these new font bottles and do a swatch video for you guys. These have really great formulas and the colors are just to die for. Apparently they also changed the formula!! I found this on the Sally Hansen site:
New and improved Insta-Dri® 3-in-1 formula provides 33% longer wear and chip resistance versus old formula.
As the #1 quick-dry polish in North America, Insta-Dri® is formulated with a base and top coat for extended wear and full-coverage, streak-free shine. Dries in 60 seconds and requires just a single step so you can take that nail look to-go anytime, anywhere.
Available in a bright, vibrant range of 48 shades
Hmmm…. they claim that these are 1-coaters but I would argue that some are, others aren’t. It depends on application and I always tend to do thick coats but the only one that really truly was a 1 coater for me was Thyme is Money. The others were definitely 2 coaters.

Since then, the brand has become a household name, famous for its dedication to making innovatively-formulated, affordable beauty products for real women.

But Sally Hansen is so much more than just nails, with products spanning 5 beauty categories: nail color, nail care, sunless tanning, hair removal, and beauty tools. Sally Hansen polishes are sold in Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and many other retailers worldwide.
Well it’s official, I want them all. I will buy some pinks, blues, and green tones and I’ll be back with a swatch video. These are so stunning. I’m such a sucker for a good creme polish. It’s my fave type of formula. I can’t pick a favorite here, they are all so gorgeous. Which one was your favorite?
