So if you saw my swatches from the first half of this collection then you know I really enjoy them. There are some drawbacks but nothing that keeps me from using them. I even have some nail art coming up! These 4 shades from the Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Nail Polishes are the primaries: red, blue, black, & white. Keep reading to see swatches & thoughts!
Sugar Fix- Excellent bright white. 2 coats. Super easy to apply. I’m actually really excited…I didn’t expect it to apply this nicely.
Razzle-berry- Brightened medium blue. 2 coats. This is a lovely shade & it is brighter than it looks here in photos. This stained around my cuticles.
Lick-O-Rich- A rich black. 2 coats. Perfection. Sorry it looks a bit shiny. Without lighting/flash you couldn’t really see the texture. This one applies really nicely.
Cherry Drop- A bright warm red. 2 coats. This one seemed thinner (notice the VNL) & for some reason it took forever to dry down. This might just be my bottle but it dries down better when I use it in nail art than in actual swatches. This shade also stained around my cuticles.
Don’t forget to check my swatches of the more spring-y shades. I like these shades more for the nail art perspective while I wear those on their own. I hope they come out with more from this line with this formula. I’d love to see some shimmers like the Zoya Pixie Dust shades I love so much!
I stick by what I said in my last review: These are very textured, apply grainy, & definitely won’t be for everyone. You apply them without a top coat to keep the texture but I haven’t had issues using a light base coat. It is totally necessary if they are staining shades as well. Again, these shades last very nicely but I don’t keep them on for more than 2-3 days even if they still look good. I find stuff clings to them & if you bake/paint/do something else a bit messy you really have to work to get these clean because it embeds itself a bit. Ew. Just keep that in mind.
What do you think of these shades? Do you prefer them to the spring ones? Are you over texture polishes yet?
