Review + Swatches: Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy was he?

That was the first thing that popped into my head when I first saw the name for these polishes. But aside from that, I have three of the colours from the range to show you today!


The Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat nail polishes were my first foray into textured polishes. I’m not usually a fan of textured look, but there is something different about these as opposed to liquid sands type polishes (and even the odd one of those will try and tempt the nail polish fiend in me). These are designed with long glitter like fibres to emulate hand spun yarn to give a textured 3D effect. But the thing I do like, is t gives the textured effect without giving much actual texture to the polish, no more than any glitter would. So with a decent top coat, you will have a smooth nail but you still get to enjoy the 3D effect!I can’t stand the bumpy feeling on my nails (cue shudder).

They all are in a clear base, but the the fibres are very densely packed within the polish. I personally prefer the look of pairing them with a like-coloured polish underneath, but they will certainly stand out on their own. But do thin coats, because it can go on quite thick, and you’ll be waiting forever for them to dry.  And if you try to apply too thin, you’ll end up trying to move it around and may ruin your polish underneath.. It’s all about finding a happy medium. This is where I found using a coloured polish base the most helpful. If provides that extra level of dimension but you don’y have to apply as much for it to look great. Anything to shorten drying time works for me. I as surprised at how much I ended up liking these, and was even more surprised at the colour I ended up liking the best. I was sure I would love the green (and I did), but the monochromatic look of the black and white (with a white polish underneath) made me very happy.

I really like how these look, and before I decided on how to use them in this post, I did a little blog hunting looking at how others chose to wear them. And I found this post from All Lacquered Up. And not only does it have some great ideas, but OMG YOU GUYS! Tight Knit over a silver foil blew my mind, I never would have thought to do that (And I really need to go buy Tight Knit now). The combinations really are endless with these. You can use as little or as much as you want alongside any colour you desire.

I am certainly impressed with these and you should go check them out! You can be more fuzzy than Fuzzy Wuzzy the bear 😉
