Nails with texture, being it a furry coat or gemstones, are hot at the moment. While in Germany my boyfriend Chris bought me a Sally Hansen Sugar Coat nail polish. I wanted to get the red version, but Chris insisted on me getting mint green. Even though the polish doesn’t taste sweet, Chris seriously tried, it sure does look sweet. Check out the swatches I made down below.

On the back of the bottle it says to apply two thin layers to get the right effect. A lot of polishes with texture need at least three coats, but Sally Hansen Sugar Coat really does it’s job with only two. The texture of this Sour Apple polish kind of reminds me of ‘liquid sand’ polishes, but than more defined. The end result is a bit more ‘rough’ than with the liquid sand ones. The Sugar Coat polish dries to a matte finish.

What I like most about this polish is that it doesn’t have to be neatly applied. You can easily apply multiple small strokes and the surface will still look even. You know how with some regular polishes, you have to get it right in one stroke otherwise you get a streaky surface? Not with this one! It’s perfect for people like me that aren’t too good at applying nail polish.
The Sally Hansen Sugar Coat nail polishes come in the colors Bubble Plum (purple pink), Sugar Fix (white), Cherry Drop (Ferrari red), Sweetie (yellow), Razzleberry (blue), Sour Apple (mint), Cotton Candies (bright pink) and Lick-O-Rich (black) and contains contains 11,8 ml/0,4 fl. I bought this nail polish in Germany for € 7 ,95/$ 10,67.
Side note: Sally Hansen doesn’t test on animals.
