New Sally Hansen Triple Shine Collection Review and Swatches

Hey everyone! Today I will be reviewing Sally Hansen's new Triple Shine Nail Color Collection. I am sorry because I meant to post this much sooner, but became super behind on my posts due to some personal matters but I am back to business now and ready to shine! Sally Hansen Triple Shine Collection hit shelves several months ago with 29 shades to choose from varying in three trend-setting color palettes:

·       Iridescence: A range of nine ethereal, pearlescent pastels and shimmering metallics
·       Pop: A rainbow of ten vibrant, saturated polishes in bold brights
·       Fanta-Sea: A glittering selection of ten aquatic tones that evoke the sun-dappled sea

I copy & pasted the following info about the collection from a Sally Hansen newsletter I received so you can get the whole scoop on this high shine collection:

"WHAT THEY ARE: Biggest, boldest, shiniest colors. When it comes to a brilliant shine, the key word is more,more, more. That’s why Sally Hansen is bringing maximum radiance to the season’s most covetable colors with the new Triple Shine Nail Color. Sally Hansen knows that high shine is what you crave. Yet, daily hand washing can eat away at color due to water’s high pH, detergent can dull shine, and everything from chlorine to heat can damage polish’s precious luster. Luckily, this innovative formula features a one-of-a-kind Ultimate Shield Complex, designed to help polish withstand the wear and tear of everyday living.  As the latest breakthrough from Sally Hansen, the definitive color authorityTriple Shine Nail Color marries sheer brilliance with the shades of the moment for non-stop shine in the colors you covet.


Triple Shine Nail Color is formulated with an Ultimate Shield Complex, exclusive to Sally Hansen. It is a carefully balanced blend of solvents and color solids that work synergistically for high impact color and maximum shine. It delivers Triple Shine benefits via:
·       The Gloss-Tech Brush designed specifically to apply the Triple Shine formula.  It lays down polish smoothly and evenly to form a glass-like, flawless finish that maximizes lasting shine – and looks “just applied” for days.
·       An exclusive complex of Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E for daily defense from water, detergent and every day wear plus Sea Kelp and Panthenol for maximum hydration.
·       Guanine, a natural crushed pearl found in aquatic life delivers a natural iridescence and high-impact, lasting shine."

This collection also has a clear Top Coat which is "formulated with the exclusive Ultimate Shield Complex, including the Guanine natural crushed pearl, it extends the life of a manicure, adds protection from chipping and wear, and keeps color looking “just applied” for days. Additional uniquely transparent acrylate polymers deliver a luminous solid shield that looks sculpted onto nails for the ultimate in elasticity and breakage resistance."

 I reviewed 7 polishes from the collection:

Ree-Raf - This is my favorite color from the collection that I have personally tried. It's a beautiful rich hot pink/coral cream shade. It took 2 coats to make opaque.

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Ree-Raf
Great White - This polish is a thin glittery white shade, perfect for the holidays. It took about 5 coats to make opaque. I suggest layering this over a more opaque white polish for a pretty effect or can wear alone with less coats for a sheer look.

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Great White
Vanity Flare - This polish is a deep grape/plum cream purple. Took 2 coats to make opaque.

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Vanity Flare
Clam Up - This is a sheer iridescent/pearlescent baby pink shade. It took 5 coats & still wasn't completely opaque. This is another one that I would suggest layering over another polish as opposed to wearing alone, unless you like a sheer look which actually seems to be in style right now.

Bait Me - This polish is a very light silver-white shade with subtle shimmer.

Dream Sheen - This is a sheer lilac purple shade.

Fanta-Sea - This is a sheer bluish teal & silver glitter polish. I swatched over my bare nails but I think it would look much nicer over a colored base. I think this would also be a nice polish in a jelly sandwich mani.

Overall Review: I found these polishes to be easy to apply & have a nice shine. The flat brush allows for easy application, but the polish is thin so the majority of the polishes I tested took more than 2 coats to make opaque (the Iridescence shades took up to 5 coats to make opaque but probably because they are meant to be worn on the sheer side, I personally prefer opaque colors). For my nail art stampers out there, these are not ideal polishes to stamp with, I suggest checking out Sally Hansen Insta-Dri's for that...My favorite shades were from the "POP" palette. Nice, bright, & creamy and took only 2 coats to make opaque. What do think think of this collection? Have you tried it & if so, which is your favorite?

You should be able to find this collection at most chain drug stores & mass retailers that sell Sally Hansen. They retail for about $4.99. For more info on this collection visit: http://sallyhansen.com/nails/nail-color/color/triple-shine
