Sally Hansen Launches Pride Collection Inspired by More Inclusive Philadelphia Pride Flag
In a recent Instagram post, Sally Hansen shared the news about their brand-new limited-edition Pride Collection inspired by the Philadelphia Pride flag.
“Today, and everyday, we stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ community 🌈. We’re so excited to be partnering with @GLAAD again ahead of #PrideMonth 🏳️🌈🌈 with a new bold & beautiful collection inspired by the new, inclusive flag 🌈.”
The gorgeous collection features eight vibrant XTREME WEAR shades capped with the Philadelphia Pride Flag.
Buy them individually or in a limited edition Sally Hansen x GLAAD INSTA-DRI Pride Gift Set featuring six shades.
Where to buy the 2020 Sally Hansen Pride Nail Polish Collection
According to GLAAD:
For 2020, Sally Hansen has not only expanded its PRIDE COLLECTIONS, it’s also added to the distribution. This year, Ulta Beauty and Walgreens will carry the collections in-store and online; CVS and Meijer will carry the collections in-store; Target and Amazon will carry the collections online. The XTREME WEAR PRIDE COLLECTION polishes will retail for $3.99 each. The INSTA-DRI PRIDE COLLECTION KIT will retail for $25.
As of today, however, only Walgreens has the collection available for purchase, and only through their online store.
Walgreens offers the entire set for $24.95. All eight of the individual Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pride 2020 Nail Colors are also available, currently on sale for 2 for $6.
However, as you can see in the screenshot above, the high demand coupled with low stock could cause “significant delays” in delivery.
Sally Hansen Donates to GLAAD
Sally Hansen made donations to GLAAD as part of their partnership. They encouraged fans and followers to do the same.
John McCourt, Senior Director at GLAAD, said:
“With its colorful and inclusive nail collection, Sally Hansen has presented a bright and creative way for people to express themselves and their pride, showcasing the brand’s ongoing commitment to promoting LGBTQ acceptance.”
With everything from parades to weddings facing cancellations due to COVID-19, this year’s Pride Month looks quite a bit different than ever before.
Celia Tombalakian, the Vice President of Sally Hansen Global & US Marketing, said:
“The new Sally Hansen Pride Collection was specially created to inspire self-expression through a range of bold and beautiful shades inspired by the evolution of the pride rainbow, allowing consumers to celebrate individuality and show their pride on their fingertips.”
Sally Hansen joins numerous other retailers in launching Pride Month special edition products. We’ll update you as more become available ahead of and throughout June.
