Twinsie Tuesday: Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Delphinium

Twinsie Tuesday yet again!  I love how the thought of TT makes Mondays a bit more bearable.  But to the challenge!


I have to say that I was excited for what we were supposed to post today because I knew exactly the shade that matched the color of my room.  I am a self-proclaimed purple addict.  Apart from my stash being predominantly purple, so is my room!  Well, African Violet in fact, or so says Benjamin Moore.


A cool, greyed-out dusty lavendar, my room and Sally Hansen Delphinium match almost exactly.  While the polish is slightly more washed out than my bedroom, there's a soft delicacy that I love about this shade of lavender.  It was also the first polish that introduced me to the designer collaboration line with Sally Hansen as this is a Tracy Reese for SH from Spring 2011.  


This is three coats.



And to compare, this is the color swatch I found online of the paint used for my bedroom.

Pretty close, huh?


I don't need to go into a discussion about why I love Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure because if you click on any other swatch link for this line, I've waxed poetically over and over about it.  Just know -- in case you didn't already -- that I loooove this brand.  If you love cremes, you should too.  


I'm so curious to see what color rooms my Twinsies have!


BUT, before we see what everyone chose, let's all wish Nory and Chelsea a very happy birthday!  You ladies are amazing and I wish you both a happy, fantastic, polish-filled year!  Hugs to you both :)

  2. MAJOR swoon.
    I hear you loud and clear about the creme-lovers loving the SH line. I'm all over them. Unfortunately I didn't get any from that collection but I have snagged a few since. I should really post them ...

    Anyway, beautiful manicure and I love that they match your bedroom wall colour. So cute!

  7. I'm glad to meet another CSM fan!  You can sometimes get them as a whole collection for like $14 on eBay, which is a major steal to me.

  18. It's odd how perfectly the colors match!  I tried doing a side by side with my nails and the wall but the walls kept photographing blue.  Go figure.

  19. Yup, I was so excited that it was!

  20. Thanks!  And yes, it is!  My comforter is lavender with a creme colored flower pattern and my furniture is custom made to look like purply fleck non-shiny marble (I'm sure the material has a name, I just don't know it).
