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.
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:
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.
Tight Knit has white and royal blue.
Fuzz-Sea has a yellowy-green and a medium blue.
Tweedy is black & white.
The four I did not purchase:
Peach Fuzz is yellow and orange.
Fuzzy Fantasy is light green and white.
Wool Knot is medium bright blue and white.
Wool Lite is all one color – pink.
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:
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.
