If you’ve wandered into the nail section of your nearest Walgreens recently, you’ve probably noticed Sally Hansen’s newest polishes: Fuzzy Coat and Sugar Coat. The Fuzzy Coat gives your nails a fuzzy appearance – much like yarn – and the Sugar Coat makes your nails look like their topped with a crunchy, candy coating. Think of your grandmother’s Divinity recipe or an iced cookie from the bakery.

I had the opportunity to try these out with my neighbor/nail gal/bff, Nails by Tammi, as well as her adorable daughter Katie. Tammi is a great mom and an amazing northwest Arkansas manicurist. Here’s Katie pictured with her Sugar Coat nails and her favorite shirt of the summer: Her Reptar tee.

I drew my summer inspiration from various Pinterest images and renderings of Sunshine. I’m not big on orange nails, so this would be a new and exciting experience for me!

So let’s begin Katie’s nails. Tammi decided to do some green polka dots on top of the Sugar Coat in Sugar Fix.

Using no bottom coat, put two coats of the Sugar Fix onto the nails. If this is your first time using textured polish, it’s gonna be weird!

Notice below how that second coat really makes a difference:

After your polish is dry, use a dotting tool, a toothpick or a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen to add your polka dots. Using one of these instead of the brush will give the dots more precision.

Now check out Katie’s nails! White with green dots, they look like dinosaur eggs to me. What do you think? RAWWWR!

Now, let’s go to my Sunshine-inspired nail look, which I achieved with the help of the Fuzzy Coat polish in Peach Fuzz.

Since the Peach Fuzz is colored sort of, well, peach – we needed to make it have a “sunnier color.” so we did two coats of yellow nail polish on the nails first.

Then we topped it with two coats of the Peach Fuzz Fuzzy Coat.

Then, take your dotting tool/pen out and put orange dots on the very tip of the nail.

Then, take a white polish and make small white polka dots right underneath the orange ones. this will really give your nails a “sunburst” look.

You can leave the Fuzzy Coat as-is or put a top coat on it for th efuzzy look, but not the texture. I loved the look of the polish but not the texture, so I opted for the top coat.

And this is how your nails will look at the end: Like a bunch of little rays of sunshine on your hands!

Might I add that the shine from the top coat really added to the “sunny” theme.photo (16) These nails have been a lot of fun; I’ve been wearing them for a few days and the polish has stayed on extremely well! They’re also like nothing I’ve ever seen before on nails.

      Thanks! This was probably one of the toughest nail art challenges I’ve had, but once we got the hang of the polish, we conquered it!

    I found this blog because my college essay used one of the same facts that you did on one of your posts, and my paper was considered “1% copied” lol. That is no big deal tho, but I was just looking around and seen the peach fuzz polish.. It looks like a thousand baby maggots in that jar lol.

    Nice blog though… A lot of interesting stuff.

        RRRREPTAAAARRRRRR! I showed my nail gal your comments. She laughed and was pleased! Yes, the Reptar shirt was her favorite for at least a while. Not sure if she wears it now.
