hey everyone! sorry i haven't been blogging too often. today i have a review of some cool textured nail polish for you!
this is the sugar coat nail polish by sally hansen in cotton candy. the idea is that you apply the polish normally, and the result looks like you dipped your wet nails into a pot of sugar! i thought that seemed really cute and i loved the colors they had. they also had a mint and a purple at the target i got this at, but i had to go with the pink.
the bottle is printed with a texture somewhat similar to how your nails come out, but a bit finer.
the application process is pretty interesting. when you crack open the bottle, the nail polish is completely smooth and like any other non-textured polish. the instructions say to apply a couple thin layers, and wait for each layer to completely dry before painting another one. i followed the instructions, and when i applied the first layer it stayed pretty smooth while i painted. but as it dried, it became extremely grainy. the second layer really makes and finishes the look and achieves an awesome sugar texture!
i personally think the textured polish trend is very cool. i love anything having to do with sugar or sweets so i think this goes well with my style, as well as just looking really interesting. from afar it's hard to tell there is texture but i had fun trying to get people to feel my nails! the application was easy and it never dried too quickly. the only problem i had was that once it chipped, it was pretty much impossible to touch up because of the texture effect. i had to just paint a couple of layers over what i had and deal with the different amounts of polish on my nails.
overall i would really recommend trying this out! it's very novel, and looks pretty rad. i love the other colors offered too and might end up getting those if i can.
that's all for today! hope you enjoyed the review. stay tuned for more regular posting coming soon, and some back to school stuff too!
