Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Swatches & Review

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was nice and relaxing! I got my car back on Friday so that was a nice start to the weekend. A few weeks ago some idiot making an illegal turn hit me, I had to get a whole new drivers side door...crazy!

Today I have 4 of the new Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat polishes to share with you. I stopped by Target on Friday night to pick up a prescription and spotted these on an endcap along with the new Sally Hansen Sugar Coat texture polishes (they look similar to the China Glaze Textures). The Fuzzy Coat polishes are different mixes of small bar glitter in a clear base. I ended up picking up 4 of the Fuzzy Coat polishes, there were a few other shades but they looked like dupes of the Nails Inc Feather polishes so I decided to not buy them.

Check out the swatches & reviews by clicking the read more button below.

Formula wise these were consistent, I found them to be a little thick but easy to apply. The glitter payoff was good on all 4. You could get these opaque on their own with 3-4 coats if you felt like it, I would suggest thinning them a bit if you want to do that though. For all the swatches in this post I used 1 coat of the Fuzzy Coat polish over my base color along with CND Air Dry as my top coat.

Fuzzy Fantasy is light green and white bar glitter in a clear base. I used this over Orly Pretty-Ugly. Loved this combo!

Tweedy is black and white bar glitter in a clear base. This was the one that I knew I needed as soon as I heard about Sally Hansen doing these, I have a serious black and white glitter obsession. I used Tweedy over Essie Bottle Service for the photos below.

Wool Knot is light blue and white bar glitter in a clear base. I was a bit worried that this would be too similar to Nails Inc Cornwall once I got it home but the shade of blue glitter is much different thankfully.  I used Wool Knot over Orly Choreographed Chaos for the photos below.

Wool Lite is light pink and white bar glitter in a clear base. I really like this one, it's very subtle depending on your base color. The light pink bars do tend to look white....which I like. I used Wool LIte over Orly Harmonious Mess for the photos below. I love this combo, it feels so spring-y to me!

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat polishes are available now, I found mine at Target...I'm not sure if these have made their way to other drugstores yet. Price wise there were somewhere in the $5-$6 neighborhood (I can't find my receipt to check for sure)

    I wasn't a fan of the Nails Inc bar glitter polishes that came out earlier this year but these are really cute! And the price is pretty good as well. I think I want to get Woolite and Fuzzy Fantasy

  4. I don't know how I feel about these. I think I'll pick up Wool Lite just to see if I like it. Haven't spotted them anywhere around me so I'll on the lookout.

  5. Thanks for the swatches!! Wasn't sure how I felt about them from the promo pictures, but Fuzzy Fantasy and Tweedy look great. I will be looking to purchase those soon!

  6. These look just like the Nails Inc. Feather Collection! I saw them in Sephora today!

  7. Similar to the Nails Inc line, yet a little cheaper! Hmm!

  8. Love the swatches!! I saw these at Target and was curious!!
    Do they have a texture to them? I know the Sugar Coat has a grainy finish to it, but I'm wondering what these feel like since they're described as a "unique textured fabric

  9. Just bought Fuzzy Fantasy and Wool Lite yesterday, and was wondering why I hadn't seen them reviewed anywhere yet... and then this post shows up in my Bloglovin'! I have to say, I think that their promo shots were a bit misleading... I think you'd need so many coats to get opacity that it would never fully dry, but they are still fun over an undercoat of color.

  11. It makes your nails look like they need a shave lol. I'm just not feeling it at all. Somehow it makes me think of that Lay's potato chip commercial LOL.

  12. Not feeling it at all..nope. Does make the nails look like their wearing a sweater.

  13. i love your nails and pictures always, but even your awesomeness can't make me like "hairy" bar glitters... still looks like maggots to me. *shudders*

    The Wool Lite over Harmonious Mess is so pretty! I bought the Sea Foam one and sadly it looked cuter in the bottle lol.

  15. I love this look but was only willing to shell out enough for one of the Nails Inc ones ($11 ouch) just to try it, so this is a great alternative. I'll probably get at least one.

  16. Hi all! I am a beauty advisor at Walgreens. We have the Fuzzy Coat and Sugar Coat nail polishes. At first I was skeptical at how the textures would turn out, but I love them! I bought Fuzzy Fantasy and Fuzz-Sea. I haven't tried them over another color, just layered them on top of a base coat. They do take several swipes to fully cover the nail and take awhile to dry, but I love the end result!

  17. That's nothing!. We have to pay £11 here in the UK for Nails Inc Feathers.. that's roughly $16.87. I may add that Nails Inc is a British brand!!. Europeans get ripped off on beauty products (amongst other things!) x

  18. That's ridiculous... As a Canadian, I know the feeling though! Take MAC for example, a Canadian brand, the products themselves are made in Canada... still have to pay more than the US.

  19. Yeah that's why I just googled it and came across this post. I did one coat and went "Woah! That doesn't look like the ad!" haha Yeah i think it is best to use them as a top coat on top of a base color. Wish I had known this ahead of time! One coat definitely doesn't do the trick....

  20. Those photos are totally photo-shopped. This stuff is horrible!


    What's more, it starts peeling after a day then you can't remove what's left with polish remover. I had to go to a nail salon. They tried to soak it then just had to file it off.

  21. I don't believe you. If you'd used it you'd also be warning people that it's impossible to remove. After soaking in nail polish remover I finally had to have it filed off.

  22. LOL wow, I wish I could photoshop my nail polish on. Blogging would be so much easier. Thank you for the compliment?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I had no issues removing this, you need to use the foil method.
