I recently received some new limited edition shades from Sally Hansen as press samples and I will have swatches up of all three for you soon, but first I wanted to address something I haven’t seen talked about yet. They did it again. Just like the Pacific Blue name-changing fiasco, Sally Hansen has again changed an existing color completely while keeping the same name.
I’m not sure exactly when the original Quick Brick came out for sale but I think I picked mine up sometime in 2013. I used two coats of each polish along with Out The Door top coat for the photos here. The old Quick Brick is on my pinkie and middle finger and the new quick brick is on my ring and index finger. As you can see, the new Quick Brick is a red creme while the old Quick Brick is a metallic and darker red.
Now, I love Sally Hansen as a brand- they are very innovative for a drugstore brand and come out with a lot of impressive and high quality polishes. I also understand the reason that certain shades may need to be discontinued- issues getting pigments or components from suppliers, formula issues, etc.
I just really wish they would at least change the name of polishes when the new one looks completely different from the old shade. It just causes confusion for people trying to purchase a particular shade online (not knowing which version it is) or locally based on swatches they found on blogs. Plus, Sally Hansen always has great and creative polish names so I’m not really sure why they don’t just change it up. There are plenty of red puns out there to be had and I’m red-y for them to be more creative (see what I did there?).
What do you think about Quick Brick’s new look and the name change issue? Let me know in the comments!
