Sally Hansen x Crayola Spring Fling Collection Swatches and Review

Sally Hansen has teamed up once again with Crayola to add six new limited edition creme pastels to their Insta-Dri x Crayola collection!


My thoughts on the Sally Hansen x Crayola 2018 Spring Fling Collection.

Hello Lovelies! Today I am sharing with you six new limited edition creme pastels from the Sally Hansen x Crayola

I had not seen any PR about this, but now that I look, there are a couple posts on the Sally Hansen Instagram from April when this collection launched.

The Sally Hansen and Crayola collaboration brings the ultimate feeling of nostalgia to the woman on the go. Those who once enjoyed the care-free pastime of coloring, can now enjoy that same sense of colorful creativity when painting her nails. With the Spring Fling collection, she is able to turn her tips into a spring-ready mani or pedi in just 10 minutes.

My first encounter with these was when I rounded the corner to a full display at my local Duane Reade (Walgreens). The first round of the Sally Hansen x Crayola “Back-to-School” collection came out last summer, with great success, and I was so excited to see them expand the range. 

My local store only had three shades left, so I picked up the other three online from Target, but you can find these at Ulta and Walgreens/Duane Reade -- while supplies last! A lot of places are sold out of shades, so if you want these, you have to act fast!


Now onto the swatches of the Sally Hansen x Crayola 2018 Spring Fling Collection…


CANARY | Yellow is and always has been my favorite color, and that means I am obsessed with yellow polishes. With so many great yellows coming out in recent collections, I was buzzing for this, hoping that it would be a one-coater like the Insta-Dri formula claims to be, but sadly this was not. As with almost all yellows, this take a bit of building up, and can be streaky. This is such a gorgeous color, and I was able to get this perfect in 3 coats.

MELON | This pastel cantaloupe polish is perfect for spring and summer! Now, this color isn’t the most unique, but it’s been a while since I’ve had a melon shade like this apply so well. The white base really helped Melon to glide on in 2 coats.

COTTON CANDY | Cotton Candy is the one polish in this collection that is not white based, but is actually a crelly formula. I wouldn’t consider this a pastel, but it is a typical spring shade. This was 2 easy coats, with a super glossy finish.

WISTERIA | Wisteria is a pinky-lavender creme that just reminds me of sweetness in the spring and summer months. Again, not the most unique color, but I was easily able to get this opaque in 2 coats.

SKY BLUE | AH this blue, my goodness this blue! I don’t consider this is a pastel either, but this blue reminds me of my middle school days when I would exclusively wear almost an identical color from Sephora. This blue makes me feel so nostalgic and it’s hands down my favorite. This one was close to a 1 coater, and if I had shorter nails I think it would be, but I did 1.5 coats for the picture.

SEA GREEN | Last but not least is this beautiful sea foam/mint green pastel. Of course this pretty color fits into the collection perfectly, but it’s formula was very similar to that of Canary. It was very streaky on the first and second coats, but leveled out for me at 3 coats.

Final thoughts on the Sally Hansen x Crayola 2018 Spring Fling Collection.

Overall, are these colors unique? No, not to my collection at least, but they are still beautiful, and pretty affordable hovering around $4 from online retailers. I think if you are in the market for a nice pastel for the season, these are an affordable, accessible,  and easy enough to apply. 

As I mentioned above, these are limited edition, and some retailers are already sold out of some colors, so if you want these run out and buy them today! 

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri did relaunch this past January with a sleeker packaging that match these Crayola polishes (but without the Crayola squiggle) and I love that redesign. These polishes usually last over a week with a nice top coat for me. 

I reviewed a couple of the "Back-To-School Collection" last summer, and you can read that review here!
