Vintage Stash Spam Week - Sally Hansen!

Hello my lovelies!! I am SO EXCITED about today's post! Sally Hansen has got to be one of my top 3 favorite brands of vintage polish EVER. There are several reasons for this but I think a huge reason has to be that I had a ton of these polishes growing up. I feel like the 90's were the heyday of Sally Hansen with all the different and novel lines that they produced during that time. Magicals, Nail Prisms, Hard as Nails with the matching handles, Chromes, etc. were all such great polishes then, and they still are now. People are STILL clamoring to get their hands on Nail Prisms and Magicals polish. Heck, I'd love to get my hands on any vintage Sally Hansens!

Since I've been collecting, I've really been focusing on the Hard as Nails line because I just fangirl so hard over those matching brush handles. I mean, how freakin' fantastic are those handles?! I feel like I've amassed a good amount of the Hard as Nails polishes at this point so I think I am going to start focusing on some of the other collections next. Magical duochromes, I've got me eyes out for you!! But if you want to see a truly impressive collection of vintage Sally's, check out Kaz's collection over at Pretty Random. It is the reason why I started collecting them in the first place!

These polishes pictured today have mostly been accumulated from eBay, blog sales, and the kind hearts of fellow polish lovers. Last month, the lovely lady over at Another Bottle of Polish sent me an amazing package of about 15 or so of the Hard as Nails and Hard as Nails with Nylon polishes, several of which I never thought I would see in my lifetime, so thank you so very, very much!!! <3 Some of the vintage Sally Hansens are pretty easy to come across these days, for example, you can find tons of Prisms on eBay right now and they pop up quite frequently at closeout stores. But others...well, not so much. It's all about patience when you live the vintage polish life =)

Anyways, enough babbling about how awesome and amazing vintage Sally Hansens are, on to the pics so you can see for yourselves!!

  1. Wow, that's an amazing collection of Sally Hansen polishes!
    I've got a Teflon Tuff that looks like your "Wink", but I am not quite sure if it *is* that one, of just a similar one. I bought it cheap in a blog sale :)

  5. Very cool again! I love how the handles of the glittery polishes are glittery too! I don't have any old school polishes, but I think I saw some Prisms in my Mom's stash. Sadly, they dried up!

      So cool that you still have a few Chromes from way back in the day! I wish I would have saved all of mine! These are all from eBay, swaps, blog sales, etc. in the past few years.

  11. Every time I see your stash sets, I feel like grabbing all of the polishes I want! Those glitters, oh my gosh! I want them all, seriously. They're stunning! I need Sally Hansen to go back to making all of these awesome polishes. I so regret not buying any of these beauties when I was younger.

    1. Yes, exactly!!! I wish all polishes had matching handles! They only brand I can think of today that does that is Essence Colour and Go, but they don't have sparkles in them like the SH ones do =)
