Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Nail Polish – Review & Swatches

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Swatches

All Yarned Up // Tight Knight // Fuzz Sea // Tweedy

Earlier this week, I found an end cap display at CVS with two new lines of Sally Hansen polishes – Fuzzy Coat, which is a short bar glitter polish, and Sugar Coat, a textured polish. There are eight shades of each, and I’ll have a swatch & review of Sugar Coat in a separate post.

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat polishes

I purchased just one Fuzzy Coat polish at first, but I liked it so much I went back to get three more.  Here are nail wheel swatches of the four I own:

Sally Hansen All Yarned Up Swatches

All Yarned Up: one coat, three coats

All Yarned Up is the only one with three colors: blue, yellow, and orange.  In all the nail wheel swatches, I’ve done one coat on the left and three coats on the right. No topcoat over the one-coat swatches; topcoat over the three coat swatches, which were slightly bumpy.  You can see that one coat leaves evenly dispersed glitter, and three coats is almost – but not quite – full coverage.

Sally Hansen Tight Knit Swatches

Tight Knit has white and royal blue.

Sally Hansen Fuzz-Sea Swatches

Fuzz-Sea: one coat, three coats

Fuzz-Sea has a yellowy-green and a medium blue.

Sally Hansen Tweedy Swatches

Tweedy is black & white.

The four I did not purchase:

Here are some layering combinations I liked:

From left to right, that’s Tight Knit over a black creme, Fuzz-Sea over Pure Ice Free Spirit, and All Yarned Up over Illamasqua Jo’mina.

I’ve worn two of the Fuzzy Coats thus far:

Fuzz-Sea over Color Club Wild Cactus

Sally Hansen Tight Knit Swatch NOTD

Tight Knit over Black Creme 

The brush shape and size (medium – not small or large) works very well with the consistency of the polish, which is thicker than a creme, but quite reasonable for a glitter. The polishes all applied evenly and smoothly.

Fuzzy Coat (and Sugar Coat) polishes sell for $5.99 at my CVS, but with a combination of some $2 off coupons I had been saving and CVS’s sale this week – $5 extra bucks on a $10 Sally Hansen purchase – I got my polishes for significantly less.

Overall, these are a hit! I really like them, and would recommend them, especially if you can get them on sale.  Note that when I went back to buy more, the display was almost empty; I actually ended up going to another CVS to buy my additional polishes.  However, I believe these are a new permanent product (the Sugar Coat display said “limited edition” and the Fuzzy Coat display did not), so if you can’t find a temporary display, they should show up in they permanent display at some point.

    I wasn’t in love with these when they first came out, but the more I see them the more I’ve warmed up to them. I think Tweedy would be great for layering with jellies and Wool Lite just looks so pretty.

  • What an interesting finish! Thanks for the swatches 🙂

  • I try to be open minded about bar glitters, since I ended up impulse buying CG Marry a Millionaire despite hating swatches online, but I’m leaning no on these 🙁

    I’m a bit disappointed to see these are just regular old bar glitter. I have very curved nails so this kind of glitter never lays flat and winds up getting ripped off.

    • I don’t like longer bar glitter, but this bar glitter is short enough to work well for me!

  • Cute!!! Not sure if I would wear the look, because I kinda hate bar glitter removal, but they do look fun!

  • Mari Calderon

    All Yarned Up over the purple is divine ! I will buy four of these for sure! Thanks for the swatches. I just discovered your blog and found it very nice so I’m following now! 😀

    I’m so happy these might be permanent. I was worried my no buy would make me miss these. I’m not too keen on the sugar coats if they aren’t actually sugary looking. Thanks for the beautiful swatches.

    Nice Post I really love Tight Knit

  • Leslee

    I bought Tweedy and Fuzz-Sea. I love them!

  • Jj

    How do you remove it??? I can’t get it off!

  • Jennifer

    What’s the easiest way to get it off? I’ve tried everything!

  • Cin

    I just got Fuzz-Sea and All Yarned Up. I paired All Yarned Up with Butter London’s All Hail The Queen for a nice office/business friendly mani. I want to go back and pick up the blue one Wool Knot, the pink one Wool Lite and I love green so Fuzzy Fantasy is a must have as well. I really like the way that All Yarned Up looks on as an accent nail.

  • Dawn Distefano

    How do you get it off? I’ve tried three different polish removers and it still won’t come off

    • I use acetone as polish remover and it came off just fine for me. Try holding a cotton pad soaked in acetone on your nail for 15 seconds before removal, or google the tin foil nail polish removal method!

  • Nuttymum

    Fuzzy coat looks and feels great BUT…. AN ABSOLOUTE NIGHTMARE TO REMOVE!!!!!! Worse than Shelac. Never Ever will I buy this again, and I would advise anyone who is thinking of trying it DON’T!!

    • Have you tried soaking a cotton ball in acetone and holding it over the nail for about 30 seconds? Non-acetone remover doesn’t work very well with most glitters.
