New Sally Hansen Limited Edition Exotica Collection

I hate posts with no photos (especially nail polish posts!) but I have some interesting info to share with you today, and I'm linking to LOTS of photos, so hear me out on this one...

Today on Instagram, my pal @mynailsarewet alerted me to the fact that there are some new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes on the horizon. The collection is called Exotica and it's already been launched in Ireland.

Here's the thing: there's one blogger who mentioned that this collection is also going to hit the US (this month!), but that's the only mention of a US release (please let me know if you find any others!). So, at this time, I obviously can't guarantee we'll get it, but keep your eyes peeled for it!

The details:

There are seven shades in the Exotica Collection: Shore-ly (beige creme), Tahitian Sunset (peach creme with subtle shimmer), Vitamin Sea (light blue creme), Go Bananas (pale yellow with subtle shimmer), Palm Treat (pastel lime green creme), Sgt Preppy (pastel lavender-pink creme), Evening Glow (orange jelly-creme--at least that's what it looks like to me!)


And here.

And here.


Have any of you seen this collection in stores here in the US? Thoughts?

Thanks again, @mynailsarewet, for the heads-up about this one!

  3. I was all excited for a second, then looked at swatches. I don't know, with a name like EXOTICA I'd expect, oh I don't know, maybe an *exotic* shade or 2 rather than pastels. Still, it's a good formula so they'll have that going for them ;)

  4. I'm not seeing any "must haves" but if these show up and there's a decent sale, even a BOGO 50, I'm sure that blue and green will go home with me. lol

    G, I think that pale beige is Shore-ly, not Bare-ly.

    1. Thanks! But those actually are not new. Do a search on my blog for "chroma chameleon" and you'll see my post from a month or two ago. :) Which reminds me...I bought the purple shade about a month ago and haven't reviewed it yet! Argh! Lol

  7. I am so unimpressed! D: It's all creams. Meh... Pretty colors of course, but they don't do anything for me.

  9. In GENERAL I would be underwhelmed with vintage pastel shades ... buuuut

    1 - when viewed as a collection (instead of judging each individually), the color story is incredibly cohesive and successful. It really DOES make me think of an exotic beach with sun-bleached wood and fabric draped and fluttering. The one saturated orange is exactly the pop of contrast it needs.

    2 - one of the linked blogs said they covered perfectly in just TWO coats. Pastels?? PASTEL YELLOW???? If this is true, total game changer!


    I wonder if the Tahitian Sunset shade will be a dupe for Sinful Color's Orange Creme. Both are pastel oranges with subtle silver shimmer.
