I had fun this summer testing Sally Hansen’s textured nail polishes, the first being the Fuzzy Coat in wool knot. Before I knew any better I applied the polish over a base coat. I was not completely pleased with the results. To get an even-ish coat you have to apply thin coats or else it clumps oddly. Here is a quick video I did showing it. It’s different but I did not love it.
As you can see this heavily textured polish has little worm like flecks in clear polish so you can see the nail bed underneath. It is not a bad look but it did not make me go, “wow!”. Here is what it looks like with the different layers to get an idea of the coverage you get:
If you are going to try the fuzzy coat I found it looks best over a contrasting color. I eventually redid the look with a dark blue polish underneath, Cover Girl’s Out of the Blue (one of my faves). Two coats of the fuzzy coat are best, three is over kill and chunky looking.
Here’s a closer look of the three coats on a base color. I just think it is too many layers and two coats are definitely better if you have a base color.
Of the two textured polishes I tried I liked this one the least. It felt the most foreign on my nails and I just don’t like the wormy appearance.
