Sassy Sauce Polish – Minneapolis Polish Con & More

*Press Sample

I’ve have been playing a game of catch up this week. My husband sprung a Florida getaway on me (isn’t he sweet) to visit family and even though I brought work with me, I never had the time to actually sit down and do the work.

Polish Con is just a few days away! Who’s going? I unfortunately won’t be there but I’m thrilled I was able to swatch the Sassy Sauce Polish exclusives for you. Along with the exclusives, Carrie is also bringing the September 2018 Collection to the event. This is a pretty big release so let’s jump right in.

 

Overview

This is such a gorgeous collection, all the fall colors are coming into play and Carrie made some amazing colors using Minnesota for inspiration. There is a little something for everyone, thermals, multichromes, flakies, softer shades and darker shades. There are no issues to report with application, the thermals react easily to temperature changes.

My Favorites: From the Polish Con exclusives, Holy Twine. It’s a great neutral just enough sparkle. From the September 2018 Collection, Minnesota Rain. I know, surprise surprise, the purple is my favorite but it’s more than just because it’s purple. You’ll see for yourself in the swatches.

Release Information: The 3 Polish Con exclusives will be available only at the Polish Con event on Saturday, September 15th. The September 2018 Collection will also debut at Polish Con. All colors will have a special event pricing for $10 each and every purchase will include a free gift to be determined. There will even be show specials! After the event the September 2018 Collection will be releasing in the shop on Sunday, September 23rd at 11am central time. The full collection of six will be available for $57, individual pricing will be marked with each swatch.

 

POLISH CON EXCLUSIVES

Whole Lotta Lakes

This thermal transitions from a muddy greenish brown when warm to a bright green when cool. It’s loaded with three different duochrome flakes and sparkling violet shimmer.ย You wished for more thermals and Carrie is delivering! Whole Lotta Lakes is inspired by Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes! The strong contrast of colors provides a really cool transition on your nails. Whole Lotta Lakes is nice and pigmented only requiring two coats for full opacity and dries to a satin flat finish.

Holy Twine

This is a shimmery golden crelly that leans towards a warm taupe color. It’s filled with rainbow flakes and bronze microflakes. This is my personal favorite of the exclusives. The color is so subtle but the golden shimmer just makes the polish pop, the flakies add some extra dimension. Inspired by the World’s Largest Ball of Twine located inย Darwin, Minnesota. Holy Twine dries to a shiny finish and covers my nail line in two coats.

Skipping on the Skyway

This creamy turquoise is loaded with copper and violet shimmer and green/blue/violet shifting flakies. I’m always partial to turquoise colors. They definitely stay in my list of favorite colors. Skipping on the Skyway applies beautifully, dries to a shiny finish and it’s creamy formula provides great coverage. Inspired by the Minneapolis skyway system that connects 80 city blocks over 11 miles.

SEPTEMBER 2018 COLLECTION

Read My Lips

This multichrome shifts between a reddy copper, gold and green with bronze microflakies and 3 types of duochrome flakies. Read My Lips dries to a metallic like finish and is easy to bring to full opacity. A perfect fall multichrome that looks like changing leaves.

Minnesota Rain

A purple jelly with aurora shimmer, gold microflakies and rainbow flakies. I can’t love this color anymore! It was one of the first colors I swatched and I didn’t want to remove it. There is so much depth to this color, the jelly formula gives it a pool like feel and the aurora shimmer with the flakies add this mesmerizing finish. Minnesota Rain dries to a shiny finish, it is a jelly so you have to build up coverage.

Mind Twist

One of the two thermals releasing in September is blue when warm, clear when cool with blue shimmer, linear holo and duochrome shifting flakies. When in it’s warm state the beautiful denim color shines, while cool and clear you get the full impact of the shimmer and flakies. Mind Twist dries in a satin almost matte finish. No issues with transition and it reacts to temperature changes quickly.

Tricks on Your Eyeballs

The second thermal is green when warm, clear with cool with added green shimmer,ย linear holo and duochrome shifting flakies. My hands were having trouble regulating their own temperature at this point and because Carrie’s thermals are so temperature reactive the polish was having a full out field day. I was still able to capture all the colors except a glossy transition, it was all or nothing haha. The warm green leans to a more teal green with just a dash of blue, my favorite part of this color are the flakies, they really sing. Tricks on Your Eyeballs also dries to a satin almost matte like finish. And still beautifully opaque in it’s clear state.

Urbanese

Another gorgeous multichrome that shifts green, gold, copper with sparkling microflakies and duochrome shifting flakies. A strong contender in my favorite because of the strong shifts. For some strange reason it makes me think of Granny Smith candied apples, another perfect fall multichrome. Urbanese dries to a shiny finish and no issues with opacity.

Mischief

The final color releasing is also a multichrome. Shifting navy, violet, copper with blue and copper shifting microflakies and duochrome shifting flakies. The deep violet shows strong but the depth of navy makes a gorgeous blurple. When the copper chrome pops the violet takes on a reddy purple. Mischief dries in a satin matte like finish and perfectly pigmented.
