This nail polish is..... weird.
The colour is great (I've got the pink one), it is long lasting and application is great. The 'sugar coat' effect is really unusual but effective.
But I really don't like the feel of this polish on my nails, it feels rough and scratchy and therefore I won't be repurchasing.
I wanted a yellow. Not a bright yellow, but a mellow yellow and I got that with the color "Sweetie".
I liked that it was different and suppose to be "textured". I've had it on my toes about two weeks and it has barley chipped. On one foot, hasn't chipped at all. No base coat or anything.
It would be nice if the texture was a bit finer, but it didn't bother me. I think the trick is no more than 2 coats. After that the effect becomes a bit over-done.
I didn't set my expectations very high considering what you're buying. It's all in one. You're not going to get the same result as if you have a fine "sugar" powder to create the effect. If that's what you're looking for you may want to pass on this product.
I only have this in Pink Sprinkle, so far, and I do love the color and formula. It's a lovely, sparkly matte, but I needed three coats for opacity. It dries pretty quickly to a sugary gumdrop texture. I love the look of it, but I have to confess it has the same downfall as other similar polishes in that the texture can be a bit distracting. After it dried I had to file the tips of my nails a bit because the polish dries a bit rough. I'm not crazy about that, but once it's smoothed over it's less distracting and after a day it's barely noticeable.
I like this polish, similar to their "fuzzy coat" nail polish, it works well as an accent color. I used the matte pink color which was a nice change from most normal nail polish colors which tend to have a sheen to them. I like it with a clear top coat to prevent it from snagging on things. The top coat made it more wearable and didn't detract from the textured look! Hope this is helpful!
Um... Ew. I just purchased this item on clearance at Target. Makes my nails look like they were painted with a 20 year old-expired-nail polish. And it looks gross when the color starts to fade. Just a bad idea.
I got this nail polish in Bubble Plum so my comments only refer to this shade.
The coverage was very nice, One coat is enough for a good coverage. I applied a base coat and 2 coats of according to instructions and I was very happy with the results: it lasts longer than regular nail polish and keeps its effects over time and dries very fast. I think this is a great choice for summer and when you want to add a "twist" to your manicure without spending a lot of time on it. The only thing you need to be careful about is that it might destroy your stockings or any other delicate piece of clothing you wear.
I bought Cotton Candies (bright pink) and Razzleberry (bright blue). I've only tried Cotton Candies, but I can already tell I'm not a fan of these.
The texture is almost too rough, it really does feel like sandpaper. The formula is hard to work with, it is thick and goopy. The polish is not completely matte either. It is already chipping since the little particles stick out off your nail.
The pink color is nice, but the formula and texture are gross. I do like the JulieG frosted gumdrops collection, so I'll stick with those if I want a texture nail polish.
I bought this in the bright pink colour. It's ok the colours pretty and it dries fast but I find it chips pretty easily. Also someone commented that it looked like my nails spent to much time in the bath cause they looked wrinkly and pruney lol.
I guess they are right though lol
I won't repurchase cause I just wasn't blown away by it and I'm sure the one bottle I have will last me for ages.
I do think the colour choices are good though lots of pretty selections
I love this Sugar Coat texture polish! I have used several shades and had great results with all. In fact, I returned and bought 1 of every shade and several of the white one as I discovered you can use it as a base and paint over it with a regular polish and essentially turn any polish into a textured!!! I picked these up at Walgreen's with a dollar off coupon and even found one on clearance at Target! It is getting hard to find though and I had to really look and even ask in some stores. Now on to the polish itself - it applies smoothly and easily but be sure to wipe the brush well as it has a tendency to pool and then you get much more than expected once you start application. It doesn't show the texture until it dries so it is a bit misleading at first. This dries super fast too! This stuff wears like iron. I had no chipping at all and only a little tip wear. The free edge though was a little rough at first, but after the first mani I fixed that by smoothing the edge before it dried. The texture on this is a little rougher than the OPI's liquid sands, but still it feels nice and it didn't drive my obsessive side crazy with not having a smooth glassy finish like I thought it would. I really like the textures now after trying them out. This was easy to remove with non-acetone remover and took no longer than a regular polish. I can't rave enough how much I love this polish. These polishes dry matte, but look nice. There are a few with shimmer in them but I haven't tried those yet. I hope Sally Hansen will release more of these. On the purple one I ended up using 3 coats only because the "sugar" chunks seemed to show through. I did 2 coats with all these and while they were opaque in 1 I prefer the look of 2. Plus my obsessive side was not happy without doing my routine 2 coats. I even used my Nailtiques protein nail treatment over this and it did not change the nice texture!
