Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - Sally Hansen Bling in the New Year

**all items purchased by me

Time for a new Spotted, Hauled & Swatched post!  Kind of scary with how quickly time is flying since this particular collection looks to be geared for the Christmas season and into New Years'.  This is a release of 4 new (possibly limited edition) Complete Salon Manicure formula glitter toppers.

As always, let's get started with the display picture.  I found mine at Giant Eagle:
new colors are: Twinkle Toes-ty, Fa-la-la-lavender, 3,2,1derland, and Midnight Glitz
older colors are: Snowglobe, Hi Ho Silver, Gilty Party, Black and Blue, Jungle Gem, Trouble Maker, Pat on the Black and Red My Lips
~there is a awesome coupon attached (at least to this particular display) for Buy 1 Get 1 Free (limit 1 per transaction)

Moving on to haul pictures...I bought these in pairs on 2 different days due to the coupon restriction.
Twinkle Toes-ty and Fa-la-la-lavender
3,2,1derland and Midnight Glitz
Bottle and label shots:

And we must have some swatches, right?
Twinkle Toes-ty, Fa-la-la-lavender, 3,2,1derland, Midnight Glitz

Twinkle Toes-ty and Midnight Glitz are about 2 coats
Fa-la-la-lavender and 3,2,1derland are one coat
~all are in a clear base with a fairly nice formula~
  • Twinkle Toes-ty is super holo-y goodness in 2 sizes of glitter, but they are all gold which is unique in my collection
  • 3,2,1derland has blue and green hex glitters in 2 sizes each
  • Fa-la-la-lavender is not a dupe for either OPI Pink Yet Lavender or Nicole by OPI Inner Sparkle (Selena Gomez collection)
  • Midnight Glitz has matte black small hex glitters and teeny tiny black glitters along with the shiny golden hex glitters (bigger than the black ones) and holographic shimmers
Just for fun, here's a quick collage of all the bottles while I was standing by my favorite window:

I'm so ready to finish up my ABC challenge - in real life, there's only 5 more letters; I'm a lot farther behind in posting them.  Oops.  Once I do those last 5 manis I'm going to be playing with my new pretties.  Yay!  I'd also like to hopefully do a couple of Halloween-inspired looks if I can squeeze in the time.  I just can't believe how quickly this month is flying.

Have you come across this collection yet?  Do any catch your eye?  What colors would you layer all of these over to showcase the glitters?  And of course, if you'd like to see any of these on my nails soon, do let me know!
