Sally Hansen Sugar Coat- Sour Apple

I don't think all textured polishes are created equal. There are some textured polishes I love. I am currently swooning over the ones Sephora is going release in September. There are other textured polishes that are not my thing. I will say the textured craze is not something I'm head over heels over. I don't dislike it at all, but I'm not as into it as others. Of course, that doesn't stop me from trying all of them out! I have one of the Sally Hansen Sugar Coats to show you today.

Sour Apple
Sour Apple is a mint pale green textured cream.

Let me get this out of my system before I get into the more concise review.....

GROSS!!!!!

Color: This color is nice, but I don't think this color is nice as a textured polish. That being said, this could be because I don't how it looks on me. Mint greens are tricky colors for a lot of people, so with added texture this one is probably less forgiving.

Formula: Not so great. This is kind of streaky and took 3 coats. I felt like this never dried either.

Texture: The texture of this is what I really don't like. I'd say I prefer sparkly textures, but I loved the Milani ones. There is something kind of oatmeal-y and cottage cheesy going on with the texture here. It looks more lumpy dumpy than cool. I think it's because I had to use more coats. I also wonder if it's because it's a pastel and it's kind of chalky? Chalky, pastel, and texture probably are not a good combo? I don't know why, but I'm trying to come up with reasons.

Price: I think I paid around $6 for this at Target.

Overall: No thanks. I know I'm sure some of you will like this, but I really don't. It's not the worst polish ever, but it's far from my favorite. I honestly think it's the pastel and texture combo that makes this kind yucky. The color doesn't help either, but I suppose that depends on how this color looks on you. What do you think?

My Rating: 1.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Monday!

  1. Its a nice texture color but I agree that the texture on this is definitely weird, lol.

  2. Oh, weird! A lot of the reviews I've read for the more plain creme + texture touts their great formula, but I always feel like it just looks sort of meh. I much prefer the textured polishes with glitter.

    I don't own this color but I own the red, back and white Sugar Coats and the only one that had a meh formula for me was the white one. I love cream textures though.

  4. Agree with you on the color. I really don't like the non sparkly textured polishes though.

  5. I loved my OPI Liquid Sands so I went and bought these Sally Hansen Sugar Coats. Walgreen's still has them with coupons for a dollar off for anyone interested. (You may have to ask the cosmetics rep as they are behind the counter at some WAG's and tear off's on displays with the Sugar and Fuzzy Coat's at other WAG's.) Anyway, these apply easily, dry really fast, seem to be durable as my mani has not chipped yet, and the price is great. However as you pointed out, only a couple of colors have any shimmer and they aren't glittery at all. The texture is a little rougher than the OPI polishes I've tried but it still feels nice enough and I am not bothered by the sandpapery feel. I do wish though that the one I have one the Grape one had some shimmers in it. I did like these well enough to purchase them in every shade as they are going to be great for nail art and I like the textures. There are some glittery ones out though and I found a blue one, a red one, and a pink one in the Sugar Coats that have sparkle!!! I don't like these as well as the OPI but the price is nice and I can't find Milani textures anywhere. I'm planning on using the white as undies to paint over and all my polishes can be "texture" polishes! I'm going back for more white while I can get it for a dollar off.

    I always see these and think oh I prefer the creme textures to the sparkle, but I'm still on the fence about it all!

  7. Such a cool one! Love the cream a lot more than the sparkly ones they made.

  8. I completely agree! Ewww. Reminds me of the exterior walls on a cheap beach motel in the 80s :-)

  9. Haha, yes it does!

  10. I'm glad you like it.

  11. I really loved the Milani cream textures. I think the textured bits in those were a little finer. This one not so much! I like both, but I think overall I prefer the sparkly ones!

  12. I believe you can still get the Milani ones on their website?

  13. Yeah, if you're feeling that way about it already I wouldn't recommend this one at all!

  14. This one is just so weird!

  15. I liked the Milani textured creams. The texture stuff in those was a lot finer, this one is so lumpy! I do overall tend to gravitate towards the sparkly ones though!

  16. Glad you liked the others! That's too bad about the white, but whites in general tend to be difficult when it comes to nail polish.

  17. Most cream textures do have good formula. The Milani Textured Creams were great. I'm reviewing another one of the Sugar Coats next week that had a good formula. This one was just not so great.

  18. Lol, yes it is weird!

  19. I love the shade, but am just not that into textured polishes.

  20. It looks like the color that was on the walls (inside and outside) of a rental house we rented back in the late 90's. Not a favorite!!
