Fifty years after making their debut with the cult beauty favorite, Hard As Nails, Sally Hansen is making sure they remain on digits everywhere with their biggest nail enamel launch ever.
StyleList recently got all lacquered up in eye-popping shades from Sally Hansen's spring nail collections during an editors' event in New York City. Read on to discover the latest in the brand's nail formulations, as well as our must-have hues of the season.
Right on trend with recent advances in camera technology, Sally Hansen's HD Hi-Definition Nail Color line contains a patented concoction of real liquid crystals that create a vivid, intense shine. While this polish is developed with the brand's notable formula that prevents chipping, breaking and cracking, don't expect it to combat the HD camera's 6x magnification of your imperfections. In sizzling new shades including Byte, LCD, Wavelength, Hue (pictured above, far left), Laser, and DVD, we're sure your nails would still appreciate the multi-dimensional attention.
Sally Hansen is also revamping its Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color collection with fun colors like Expres-So Yellow, Mango Motion, Rose Rush, and Sea Breeze (pictured above, center) that are begging to be painted onto your toes. With its unique "one stroke, one coat" Perfectionist Brush, we can attest to this product getting the job done in 60 seconds flat.
The Complete Salon Manicure line boasts a formula that combines all five steps of a salon manicure -- base coat, growth treatment, strengthener, color, and top coat -- in a single bottle. This collection socks it to the competition with a nourishing finish that can last up to 10 days and a rubber grip at the base of the handle that provides more control. And with 14 new shades including colors like Amazing Blaze, Pomegranate (pictured above, far right), Dive Deeper, Ring My Shell, and Bermuda Sand, created and inspired by Tracy Reese's Spring 2010 collection, we expect this line to fly off shelves just as swiftly as the designer's famous frocks.

Now available in eight molten metal shades including Turquoise Chrome, Pink Chrome, Gold Chrome, and Silver Chrome (pictured left), you can jazz up your ordinary manicure or pedicure.
