Sally Hansen Sour Apple

Monday, May 13, 2013

When I hear that that Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coats and Candy Coats had been popping up at Target over the weekend, you know I had to make a trip to see if I could find them. I am not sure I am sold on either of these textures but I wanted to see them for myself. After striking out at one Target, I made the effort to try one more a little further away and I found them!

The only one from the Sugar Coat collection I was dying for was the mint green (and maybe the black). Target seems to have a limited display though and only has 4 Sugar Coats and 6 Fuzzy Coats. I think the full display has 8 Sugar and 8 Fuzzy. Luckily the Target I tried did have the mint green textured polish though. That's what I have below for you. Sour Apple doesn't really look like a sour apple at all but is instead a really nice, creamy pastel mint. Now this texture collection does not have any shimmer or glitter in it. I think it is similar to the Milani or China Glaze textures (vs Zoya or JulieG). I did not have any issues with application and just tried to do really thin coats. The consistency of the polish is interesting. I kind of feels like you put some sand in your regular nail polish. It was a little weird at first but I soon got used to it. Below is 2 coats with no base or top coat.

It really does look like stucco to me. I don't know, though I love the base color, I don't know if I am loving the whole look. I like some of the textured polishes but I think I need that sparkly, glitter in order to enjoy it. If you do like this texture though,  I think you will really like this collection. There are some unusual colors in the mix and the formula was quite nice. I haven't had a chance to try out the fuzzy polishes yet. I don't know if I will like those either, but I guess we will see.

Thanks for stopping by. Did anyone else snap these up this weekend? Do you love it or hate it? Tell me in the comments below. Thanks!
