Sally Hansen Fall 08: Tracy Reese Collection
Year after Year Sally Hansen collaborates with fashion designer, Tracy Reese to bring us the latest and greatest nail trends right from the Runway. For Fall 2008, Sally Hansen and Tracy Resse introduces 10 limited edition shades directly from Tracy's Fall 2008 Fashion Runway show.
The fall collection includes 10 new shades sure to please any appetite. The shades range from your basic nude colors to vampy and edgy - perfect for fall trends. Sally's best selling formula provides full coverage with two easy applications. Some colors used three applications just to even everything out. But, overall, two coats was the average for me.
Check out all the photo swatches below.
I'll be the first to admit - nude colors aren't my thang but, Divinity - a true nude with gold shimmer and slight pink undertones ended up being one of my favorite shades from the Fall collection.
Quartz Chameleon - a soft pink with gold shimmer.
Moonstone was my least favorite shade from the Tracy Reese collection. Despite the grey bottle color, it's more of an white frost with silver shimmer.
If it wasn't for Sally Hansen's previous release in Gunmetal, I would be all over this color. Stormy Blue was slightly disappionting just because Gunmetal is pretty much an exact dupe.
For the swatch above, three coats were applied on each nail.
Raven's Wing - a black loaded down with black, gold, and silver shimmer that's very blingy. I absolutely love black nail polish colors for Fall - it's the new blue baby. What makes Raven's Wing different from any other black is the beautiful gold base shimmer.
Alchemy, another favorite from the collection, a magenta purple with red and pink shimmer.
Cruel Heart - a ruby red with matching shimmer. Just your standard red, nothing special.
Night Lily - a deep berry purple pink creme. Unfortanetly, my swatch isn't an accurate color respresentation for some reason. It's a much deeper purple berry shade that's very pretty. Check out an example below.
Night Lily has the same base color as Massini's Purple Medallion. Just to give you an idea how off my swatch is above.
The Tracy Reese collection should be available now at most stores reatailing ($4.99 and up).

Seriously, these are lovely! I've been to practically all my RiteAids, Walgreens, Targets, what have you, looking for these babies and I can't find them! Where did you find them?

I've heard these are extremely hard to track down for some reason?! Meijer is the only store I've seen these in my area. Hopefully, they'll pop up soon. Good luck guys :)

I found mine at Fred Meyer, which is owned by the same company as Meijer, I believe (Kroeger). I love these colors!
