Today I have a quick review (and comparison) of Sally Hansen’s new, limited edition Sugar Coat textured nail polish line. I purchased just one shade from the line – Lick-o-rich, which is black. The Sugar Coat polishes remind me of Milani’s Textured Creams; both the Sally Hansen and the Milani textured polishes are creme finishes with no shimmer or sparkle.
There are eight shades in the Sugar Coat lineup:
Razzleberry is bright blue; Bubble Plum is pinky-purple (more purple than it appears here). Sweetie is bright yellow; Lick-o-rich is black and Sugar Fix is white. Sour Apple is mint green; Cotton Candies is pink, and Cherry Drop is red.
These polishes are very highly textured – much more textured than any other polish I have tried (Zoya Pixiedust, OPI Liquid Sand, Milani Textured Cream, LA Girl Sandblast, or Nails, Inc. Leather Finish). Milani is the second most textured and Nails, Inc. the least textured.
Here’s a comparison of Nails, Inc. Leather Finish in Noho (reviewed here) & Sally Hansen Lick-o-rich, the two black textured polishes I own:
It’s clear from the photo how different the texture levels are! I personally prefer the Nails, Inc. slightly-textured finish – the Sally Hansen finish is just too rough for me – but opinions will of course, vary.
Overall, these are okay. There are some nice colors, and the price point is great, but they are just a bit too textured for me!
