Who else is over all this cold weather? I know I am! I can’t complain too much though, I didn’t have to go through that crazy Polar Vortex. Carrie with Sassy Sauce Polish is located in Chicago (my hometown!) and she suffered through that weather.
While locked in the house Carrie even created one of the colors for this release! I hope anyone that had to endure the weather had some fun activities to keep them busy and lots of blankets to keep them warm.
This collection is a definite transition from winter to spring. I don’t know about you but I’m ready for bright colors and blind you in the sun light. The collection features four polishes that include one thermal and one blind me in the sun shade.
There are no issues to report with application or formula. Also releasing in this release is cuticle oil! Carrie has found these super cute mini bottles to hold the oil (pictures below).
My Favorite: I’m not going for purple this time, my favorite from the release is Crabitha!
Release Information: The February 2019 Collection will be available on the Sassy Sauce Polish website starting on Saturday the 23rd at 11:00am central time and will be priced at $11 each.
The cuticle oil is a custom blend of jojoba oil, vitamin E oil, sweet almond oil and fragrance oil. Again this does contain a nut oil so take note those that have nut allergies. Each bottle holds 6.5ml of oil and comes with a brush applicator. The scents available are: Pink Suga, Bubble Gum, Monkey Farts, Fruity Loops and Pineapple. If you are a fruit leaning person like me I highly recommend the pineapple scent.
Turks and Cocos
Turks and Cocos is a cocoa when cool and turquoise when warm thermal polish with color shifting flakies and a shifty shimmer. The turquoise peeks through even in the cool state for a beautiful effect. For some reason this made me think of lizard scales so I tried to capture that in the nail art. I’m trying a little something different with my swatches for thermals this time around, let me know what you think by leaving me a comment. I have frozen hands all the time so it’s harder for me to capture transition stages, to counter this I have split my nails with warm and cold colors but show the transition on one nail in macro form. Turks and Cocos is opaque in two coats and dries to a satin finish without any top coats.
Sassy Sauce Polish: Scrambled Stamping Sauce

Roxy makes me want to sing Roxanne by The Police at the top of my lungs! Maybe it was a bad idea to play Moulin Rogue in the background while swatching, haha. Roxy is a magenta base with a deep blurple multichrome pigment that dries naturally to a matte finish and is perfectly opaque in two coats. This polish is gorgeous in it’s natural matte but it also has some serious attitude with a glossy top coat. I love it both ways and can’t decide which is my fave, so tell me what is yours.

Carrie made this color while trapped inside, when the weather decided to be evil and freezing. Polar Vortex is gorgeous compared to its weather counterpart, it’s a purple holographic with shift shimmer and icy blue flakies that dries to a shiny finish without top coat. This polish takes two coats to be fully opaque even though one coat gives great coverage and amazing sparkle.
Sassy Sauce Polish: Carbon Stamping Sauce
Maniology: M014 stamping plate
All I can say is “go towards the blinding light”! This neon coral is packed with a golden shimmer straight from the sun along with a sprinkling of crystal chameleon shifty flakies for added sparkle. Yes, please, bring on the sun! This color just screams to me so as soon as I took off this swatch, I turned around and immediately used it as a pedicure. If only it would warm up enough for me to take off my socks so I could admire it more than when I’m just in the shower. Two coats is need to hide that nail line and it dries to a satin finish without any top coat.
