Sally Hansen Spring/Summer 2015 Selections

Sorry for the unexpected blogging absence since last Tuesday.  Things have been a lit hectic on my end.  I was working insane hours the week before and then was on my feet at a 3 day work event through Sunday.  Then on Monday, I had excruciating pain running through my neck and back.  Since I was at my boyfriend's, I spent hours looking for a doctor that could see me.  To make a three day story short, I ended up going to three doctors, discovering I've torn a ligament in my neck and will need physical therapy over the summer.  Fun times.

Anyway, since I wasn't home (I couldn't really drive or use a computer), blogging and swatching took a week-ish hiatus.  So with my apologies, I thought I'd show you two polishes I picked up from Sally Hansen recently.  Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

Cherries to my Aries
When I first saw the Beachside Astrologer display, I got very excited.  While I don't believe in the horoscope other than loosely identifying as a Gemini (multiple personalities?  Please!  The more the merrier), I love the look and idea behind this.  However, while I skipped on the yellowy polish for my star sign, I was captured by the bright cherry red jelly with the intense fine shimmer.  Cherries to my Aries is such a me color: classic red with a glorious glow from the shimmer.  The shimmer is so fine, the glow does give this red a bit of a metallic look but it's fairly unique shade.  Three thin coats for this beauty.

Grass is Greener
From an unnamed Spring/Summer display, I was really taken by this delicate yet bright muted teal green.  I'm not a fan of teals typically so it surprised me how I kept coming back to this lovely botanical shade.  Wearing it was a dream and I couldn't stop thinking how chic I looked in this Lilly Pulitzer-esque green!  Application was perfection in two coats.  The downside?  Staining -- my cuticles and fingertips were grossly green when I took this off.  I can bear to part with this polish so I'll have to wear it over Yellow Stopper so I can just peel it off when I'm done.

I'm pretty sure both of these shades are limited edition so if you like them and happen to come across them, I'd recommend picking them up.  And if you're following me on Instagram, you'll also find lots of tips on how to remove staining (as I'm currently suffering through a disastrous Pop-arazzi polish staining saga).
