I was so excited when I heard that Sally Hansen was coming out with the Fuzzy Coat collection, a dupe for the Nails Inc. Feathers Collection. I love me a gimmick, but not one that expensive! I know this matte bar glitter trend isn't for everyone, but I thought the idea was fun and different. I found six of the eight shades in the Fuzzy Coat collection at Target last night. I can't remember if there just weren't slots in the display for the other two, or if those two were sold out.
Swatches after the cut!
Sally Hansen Fuzz-Sea features turquoise and yellow bar glitter in a clear base. Two coats.
I think this one may be a dupe for Nails Inc Brighton. Scratch that, it basically is one. Check out KarenD's post for bottle shots and swatch comparisons.
Sally Hansen Fuzzy Fantasy features lime green and white bar glitter in a clear base. This one had the thinnest formula, and I tied to make up for it with an extra coat. Three coats.
Sally Hansen Peach Fuzz features orange and yellow bar glitter in a clear base. This one is my favorite It reminds me of a Dr. Seuss character.
Sally Hansen Tweedy is a mix of black and white bar glitter in a clear base. It had the best formula of the bunch, and is probably the most wearable. Kinda reminds me of TV static, but Tweedy is a cute and apt name! I guess TV static may go the way of rotary phones soon...two coats.
Sally Hansen Wool Knot is a mix of bright blue and white bar glitter in a clear base. This one wasn't quite as bad as the others, I almost got it opaque in two coats.
Sally Hansen Wool Lite is the odd man out, as it only feature ones shade of pale pink bar glitter in a clear base. This one kind of feels like fuzzy pink angora sweater (a la Johnny Depp in Ed wood?). Two coats.
I will probably never wear these guys alone, so I figured I'd try them out over some base colors and show what they look like.
Pointer is Fantasy Fuzz over China Glaze Four Leaf Clover
Middle is Tweedy over Sally Hansen Dune
Ring is Fuzz-Sea over China Glaze Peachy Keen
Pinkie is Peach Fuzz over China Glaze For Audrey
Thumb is Wool Knot over Sally Hansen Butterscotch.
Sally Hansen All Yarned Up is probably my favorite of the new collection, with such a lovely mix of patel peach, blue, and yellow matte bar glitter. The colors are so sweet and summery. I need to find the perfect base color for this one. This is two coats.
Sally Hansen Tight Knit is a really fun one, with a mix of primary blue and white bar glitter. I think this one is super versatile considering how weird the concept is. This over red would be great for the 4th of July manicures, or if your school colors happen to fit this. My high school did!
