I know, I know. I've been gone for a hot minute. May was such a hectic month. I went to Philadelphia for a week, worked a ton, saw Fall Out Boy, and had so much to do Memorial Day weekend. Thanks to my new favorite base coat, Rejuvacote, I didn't have to worry about my nails. Polish lasts me a week or more. AMAZING. I may not have been posting, but I've been buying polish. At first, I only had four of these Sally Hansen Sugar Coats. I wasn't sure about them until I swatched a few. I had to run out and find the other four this afternoon.
Check out the swatches under the cut...
Sally Hansen Sugar Coat is a special effects polish that dries to rubbery matte texture. For the following swatches, I used my normal base coat and no top coat. These pictures were taken in natural light. All of these polishes have the same formula. They're perfect in two coats; I did one thin and one thicker coat. The dry time is fast since you don't need a top coat. They were all super easy to apply. I didn't even need to do any clean up at the cuticle.
stark milky white
bright cherry red
I love this!
My second favorite of the collection.
pale buttery yellow
pale buttery yellow
The name threw me off on this one. I feel like it doesn't quite fit with the other names.
bright primary blue
This one surprised me. It's a great blue, but beware! It's a stainer. I would suggest using the foil method for removal as to not stain your fingers.
light mint green
I had to try this one first! I wore it for four days without any tip wear or chips. I got lots of compliments on the texture.
medium bright bubblegum pink
My favorite! I almost didn't pick this one up. I'm so glad I did! This has a great leather look to it. I can't wait to incorporate this into nail art.
I can't recommend these enough. I'm pleasantly surprised by them. I wasn't sure if I would like them since they don't have any glitter or shimmer at all. The creamy rubberized texture makes for a quick and easy manicure. Be sure to wash your hands after removing this polish. I was left with little rubbery bits after removal, but it wasn't anything horrendous.
What do you think of textured polish?
Sally Hansen polish is available at drugstores. I purchased mine at Target and Wal-Mart. If you can't find them, look at the end caps.
