Sally Hansen Complete Manicure Spring Racing 2014 collection - Pink a Card and Barracuda

Hellooooooo ladies!! It has been quite a while! I've been pretty sick over the last little while and I've taken on way too much (work, TAFE, salon) but anyhoo I'm posting again. It's finally Spring here in Aus which means it's time to break out the pretty dresses and pastels in preparation for the racing season. I've never been to the races myself but it's on the to do list! Today I have quick swatches of 2 shades from the Sally Hansen Complete Manicure Spring Racing 2014 collection for you - Pink a Card and Barracuda. I really enjoyed last years Spring Racing collection so how did this years shades match up?

Barracuda is a pale baby blue creme. It was part of last years Spring Racing collection too and I'm glad it was re-released so I could try it out. 3 coats is pictured below.

Overall: Pink a Card and Barracuda are spot on for Spring! I love the Complete Manicure polishes as I love the brushes and there's something about the shape of the bottles that's really appealing. The formula on these were a little tricky to work with as they were on the streaky side and definitely require care when applying but they're worth it. I recommend doing thin coats to avoid streaking and allowing plenty of time to dry in between coats. Barracuda in particular was quite watery unfortunately but the end result is worth it. The shades dried quickly to a high gloss shine. Putting the shades side by side it's as though I'm doing a baby gender reveal or something ha!

Details: The Sally Hansen Spring Racing collection is available now for $9.95 (normal RRP is $14.95!)
from Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Target, Coles and select pharmacies nationally.
