Virtually anything can spark an idea for a manicure these days, and with Halloween just around the corner, candy is a clear source of inspiration. Sweet treats come in a rainbow of colors, but you’re on your own when it comes to picking out shades that perfectly match your favorite confectionery — that is, unless you’re a big fan of Sour Patch Kids.
Just in time for fall, the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri X Sour Patch Kids collection is launching at Amazon, Ulta Beauty, and Walgreens. Based on the most popular flavors, the limited-edition line features mouthwatering shades that are as fun and satisfying as the sour-then-sweet chewy candies.
Each polish in the collaboration has the beloved Insta-Dri three-in-one formula that dries in just one minute, as well as a Halloween-centric name: R.I.P-urple (a vibrant grape), The Un-red (a true, blood red), Pump-kid (a neon orange), Hallogreen (a bright kelly green), Ghouls Night Out (pitch black), and Boo-lue (a bright, mid-tone blue).
But the best part of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri X Sour Patch Kids collection, in our opinion, has to be the shade First Sour, Then Sweet. It’s a clear polish spiked with sugar-like white glitter that, when painted atop any of the other colors, uncannily recreates the look of Sour Patch Kid candies.
The best part of this collection is that, like Sour Patch Kids, it’s awesome all year-round — not just for Halloween. But it won’t be available all year-round, so don’t hesitate to get your favorite shades for $6 at Amazon, Ulta, and Walgreens starting September 9.
