Sally Hansen Debuts Sesame Street-Inspired Nail Collection

The line comprises 10 Insta-Dri shades and a Salon Effects press-on nail kit featuring playful odes to the characters, including Ernie’s rubber ducky.

Coty’s Sally Hansen in July launched a limited-edition Sesame Street collection of nail polish and artificial press-on nails inspired by the iconic PBS television series’ characters.

The “Sally Hansen x Sesame Street” collection comprises 10 of the brand’s Insta-Dri shades and textures inspired by beloved characters, including Oscar the Grouch, Big Bird and Elmo. It also includes Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects Perfect Manicure nail kit of ready-to-wear artificial nails in an oval shape, featuring playful odes to the characters, including Ernie’s rubber ducky and Cookie Monster’s googly eyes.

The packaging for the limited-edition line displays icons of the Sesame Street characters and logo on the front of the classic Insta-Dri bottle and the Salon Effects Perfect Manicure packaging.
