A BLAST FROM THE PAST. That’s right, Sally Hansen has re-released their Color Foil line!
The original line released back in 2014, and had 10 shades. Now that was back before I fully got into polish and swatching, and before my instagram and blog so I didn’t grab them. So I won’t have the originals to fully compare.
In this new line, we have 7 shades. I have 6 of them, with one being out of stock when I ordered (I’m missing Vio-lit, the lilac purple). These have different names than the previous release, but the colors seem pretty similar so they translate well. Looking at old swatches, it seems like the shades now “missing” in the new release are a super bright pink, a more teal-blue shade, and a yellowy-green.
Sally Hansen describes these as a high shine shades that dry to a mirror finish. So of course I was super interested to see how any foiled shade from the drugstore would hold up.
I grabbed these from CVS’s website, as my local stores can be bad about getting things in stock. They retail for $8.99 each, so more than their Insta-dri lines, but cheaper than the Miracle Gels. They come in these square metallic bottles (Sally Hansen does love to have 16 different bottle shapes) with a different colored sticker to match the polish inside.
