Sally Hansen Sugar Coat: Red Velvet

purchased by me

When the first round of Sally Hansen textured polishes hit drugstores, I wasn't in a hurry to get them.  None of them had sparkly glitter, and I'm not crazy about the single-color textured polishes.  The second round, however, had some sparkly shades and a shimmery shade in addition to the plain ones, so I grabbed the two that caught my eye.

The first of these was Red Velvet.  The color is gorgeous--American Beauty Rose red.  The texture bits don't sparkle, but the base is shimmery, which gives it the contrast I like.  The formula was easy to work with, very pigmented and smooth and the dry time was quick.  All swatches are two coats.

The Sugar Coat collection is now available at Target, Walgreens and CVS, and if you're in NE Ohio, I've also seen them at Marc's!


  1. Thank you for swatching this. It looks much nicer on you than the display makes it appear.

  2. I really like it! And thank you very much for the compliment. :)
