When it comes to nail trends, I tend to dive right in. The texture trend wave is faltering for some people but I still love them. I’ve been awaiting the Sally Hansen Sugar Coat polishes for quite awhile & now I get to share them with you! I broke my swatches up into two posts because I have a total of 7 & the first 3 I have to show you are the most spring-like. Keep reading to see swatches & review of Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Nail Polishes in Sour Apple, Bubble Plum, & Cotton Candies.
The Sally Hansen Sugar Coats are pretty even across the board with these 3 shades. With the exception of Sour Apple, you need only 2 coats of these. Sour Apple needed 3 but I might try it again with thicker coats. These polishes are quite odd…you can feel & see the grit in this polish as you apply not just as it dries. Like the Zoya Pixie Dust polishes I reviewed for Summer 2013, you need to let each coat fully dry in between & not use a top coat. These feel more gritty than many of my other textures.
Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Nail Polish in Cotton Candies- Bright bubblegum pink with a matte, textured finish. 2 coats.
Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Nail Polish in Bubble Plum- Purple leaning lilac with a matte, textured finish. 2 coats.
Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Nail Polish in Sour Apple- Soft pastel mint green with a matte, textured finish. 3 coats.
I really enjoy these polishes & the shades work nicely as a bit of color. I find that because these are more textured they seem to cling to dirt too. I find myself really having to wash my nails more. I think they’re fun & really different, I don’t have anything quite like them. These don’t have any shimmer to them like the Zoya polishes I reviewed here but I think they might in the future.
What do you think of these polishes? Are you over the texture trend?
