In the sea of neons that many brands are releasing for summer, Sally Hansen is bringing pastels back for their Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Electric Summer collection. These eight beachy shades will compliment any tan (or lack there-of) with light and bright, shiny color.
Pearl Up is a milky white with a slight pink undertone.
Floaties is a beige-peach shade that is very clean and elegant.
Teeny Bikini is a wearable, cool-toned banana yellow.
Despite its name, Peach Babe is more of a flamingo pink.
I can’t find any other words to describe You’re Crabby, besides strawberry-milkshake pink… you get me? It’s only a wee bit darker than Peach Babe.
Kelp Yourself is a beautiful mint green. This color will always be a summer staple of mine in beauty and clothing!
Wet Suit is a sky blue shade.
Water Orchid is a light lavender (my favorite color), and probably my favorite in the collection, of course.
Pearl Up, Floaties, and Teeny Bikini all lean more towards a crelly formula, needing three coats for full opacity. The rest have a smooth cream finish, needing just two coats. The consistency is very nice– thin enough to layer, but no pooling in the cuticles.
These are all limited edition shades for Summer 2014, and will be widely available for $2.99 in drugstores nationwide starting in July.
