Sally Hansen Fa-la-la-lavender Swatches & Review (Layered Over Nicole by OPI Carnival Cotton Candy)

Sally Hansen Sally Hansen Fa-la-la-lavender Swatches & ReviewI hope that you all had a great New Year’s! :)

Although I rarely make New Year’s resolutions, I decided to make one for blogging.

I was going through my old computer files and came across a few manicures and product photographs that never made it on here. I plan to go back, and let them all see the light of day.

Back in October, I punched up a pink manicure with some glitter.

I came across photos of Sally Hansen Fa-la-la-lavender layered over Nicole by OPI Carnival Cotton Candy (from the Carrie Underwood Collection).

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Forward to Fashion Collection Press Release & Promo Pictures

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Forward to Fashion CollectionYou may remember that not long ago, I reviewed and swatched No S-pear Time. Well, it was from the limited-edition Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Forward to Fashion Collection!

There are 8 shades in total, and even though the press release I’m going to share with you today says they’re available in September, I’ve still seen them sold at Shoppers Drug Mart.

And I’ve confirmed with PR (who sent me the promo pictures and information) that these shades are indeed still in stock. So, that’s great news if any of them interest you.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri No S-pear Time Swatches & Review

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri No S-pear Time Swatches & ReviewIt should come as no surprise that Sally Hansen Insta-Dri No S-pear Time is my kind of colour. Hello, it’s greeeen!  ;)

You know what? I has been ages since I tried any of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polishes, and it’s very strange because I’m nearly always tempted to bring one of the shades home with me whenever I frequent the drugstores.

Okay, so I may be biased about loving No S-pear Time, but it really blew me away.

Allow me to explain further in this post.

Sally Hansen Midnight Glitz Swatches & Review (Layered Over China Glaze Papaya Punch)

Sally Hansen Midnight Glitz Swatches & ReviewSally Hansen Midnight Glitz is one of the amazing, glittertastic nail polishes in the Wonderlust Holiday Collection, which will hit stores in November.

This nail polish is marketed as a layering polish, so that’s exactly how I chose to wear it. Haha, and it didn’t take long for me to come up with a colour combination!

Although this sparkle diva is supposed to be more for the December holidays, I was itching to give it some Hallowe’en flavour. (After all,  my favourite holiday is Hallowe’en!) So, I went with a pumpkin-friendly orange, China Glaze Papaya Punch.

The overall effect is exactly what I was aiming for, and it’s making me look forward to October 31st even more!

Sally Hansen Wonderlust Holiday Collection Press Release & Promo Pictures

Sally Hansen Wonderlust Holiday Collection Press Release & Promo PicturesYup, the holidays are quickly approaching!

The other day, I went to the grocery store and already saw a large display of Christmas decorations. It’s not even Hallowe’en yet, but, of course, retail stores need to plan ahead and market products in advance.

Are you looking forward to the holidays?

Here’s a taste of the new Sally Hansen Wonderlust Holiday Collection that will be in stores this November!

These glitter nail polishes look like they’d be really fun to layer with and create playful holiday manicures!

I put together this little collage of the colours because I think they look pretty together.

Which stand out the most to you?

The Best of 2012

The Best of 2012Another year is coming to a close! Are you ready to see what 2013 brings?

What you probably didn’t know is that in 2012, I faced a lot of stressful issues in my personal life that caused me great emotional pain.

Blogging and interacting with you helped me push through it instead of giving up.

If you’ve been following Swatch And Learn for even a little while, I hope it’s evident that blogging and interacting with readers bring me a lot of happiness. Yes, it is hard work and very challenging to keep up, but I’m not the type of person who’s afraid of pulling up my sleeves to get things done.

Thank you for listening to what I think and for valuing my opinion, post after post and tweet after tweet. That is a big compliment!

Most of all, thank you, dear readers, for being encouraging and kind as well as for cracking the much-needed joke.

You remind me that genuinely good people are still out there. I needed that reminder, and you gave it to me in spades!

So, while in this post I list the best of 2012 in terms of nail polish, nail art, etc., I want you to know that Swatch And Learn readers are really the best of 2012!

My Top 5 Favourite Greens

My Top 5 Favourite GreensFor a while, I’ve been wanting to share My Top 5 Favourite Greens with you all. And, during the past year, quite a few of you have asked me to do so. I’m finally getting around to it! :D

As you know, green nail polish is my weakness. It’s my comfort colour. It’s what I can’t seem to get sick of wearing. It’s love, but also lust. ;)

It was really tough to whittle it down and to just pick 5, but I did it. (Haha, watch, right after I publish this, I’m going to have a moment where I go, “Ahhh! I forgot to include [insert the name of a green polish here]!”

Come see what made the cut.
