Sally Hansen Salon Project Runway

Today's manicure is Sally Hansen Salon Project Runway.
Project Runway is from the Sally Hansen Salon (believed to be) Canadian-exclusive release known as the Runway or Mode collection.
That sounds really vague, huh? At least one Sally Hansen rep has claimed that this collection is NOT a Canadian exclusive, but I've yet to hear of anyone finding it in the US. I've never seen a full picture of the display, and have heard Canadians call it the Mode Collection, Project Runway collection, and Runway Collection.
A kind MUA member named night_owl has allowed me the use of her photo of the bottom collection display (seen above) and I was quite fortunate to find a Canadian to purchase most of the shades for me.
Project Runway is an AMAZING polish. It's hard to describe. It's somewhere between green and teal. I can't call it a straight green, but it is a very green-leaning teal in any case. It's almost a jelly, which means it has a really cool effect, but is also a bit streaky - requiring three coats for good coverage. There's chunky gold and green shimmer/glitter sunk into the jelly. It looks good indoors and amazing in sunlight.
This mani is one coat SpaRitual resurface base coat, three coats of polish, and one coat of SpaRitual tout de suite top coat.
