Zoya Fall 2013 PixieDust Nail Polish Swatches & Review

I’ll admit, when I first tried textured nail polish, it skeeved me out. The feel was unusual and all I could think about was how lint, and possibly cat fur, would get stuck to it. But like some annoying person asking, “Do you like me? How about now? HOW ABOUT NOW?” it eventually wore me down. I blame Zoya PixieDust!

NEW Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Shades – Swatches & Review

I’m not gonna lie, when the first set of Sally Hansen Sugar Coat textured nail polishes released, I wasn’t that jazzed. The color palette was very basic; white, black, red, yellow, pink, etc. With the exception of a green (Sour Apple) and blue (Razzle-berry), they didn’t speak to me.

However, Sally Hansen has released a second set of Sugar Coat shades that include some more “me” colors, including some glitter textures.

If you know me at all, you know that blue, purple and teal are so in my wheelhouse and that the sparkly texture polishes are my jam, so I had a lot of fun playing with these new colors. In fact, I came up with a layering combination so gorgeous that I dare even the texture haters to dismiss it.

Three Ways To Wear Sally Hansen “Fuzzy Coat” Textured Nail Polish

While textured nail polish is, without a doubt, the predominant trend for 2013, it’s also extremely polarizing. There is a hard line in the sand when it comes to the love/hate relationship we have with the look. And though sand texture has made the biggest impact, the fuzzy/feathered look isn’t far behind. Enter Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat.

China Glaze Texture Nail Polish Swatches & Review

When I first heard that textured nail polish was going to be the big thing for 2013, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Given that so many DIYers had been experimenting with flocking powder, beads, sugar, embossing powder and just about anything you can find in a craft store, brands could have gone down a number of different roads.

I’m happy to see that rather than jump on the exact same bandwagon (e.g. crackle), the brands are differentiating themselves somewhat, offering varying takes on texture. The China Glaze Texture collection is one such example.

Of the textured polishes I’ve shown thus far, the majority have gone down the sparkly, glistening sand route. China Glaze’s take has the look of stucco with tiny irregularly shaped particles that remind me of NERDS candy.
