Today's mani is fairly simple, a base color with 1 accent nail and 2 coordinating stamping designs.  I have been trying out several different textured polishes and Sally Hansen has a new line of textured polishes called Sugar Coat and I had to give it a try.

Here's what I used:

  • Base coat: Seche Recondition
  • Base color: Late Night Lilac by NYC Expert Last Nail Polish
  • Accent Nail: Sour Apple by Sally Hansen Sugar Coat
  • Top coat 1: Seche Vite Top Coat - I apply this before stamping, if I mess up I can remove the design without removing the base color
  • Stamp colors: Konad Pastel Green
  • Top coat 2: IBD UV Top Coat cured under a 54 watt UV lamp for 3 minutes
  • IP: Dashica Beauty Shop - Big SdP Z

First off, the textured polish by Sally Hansen Sugar Coat, Sour Apple is a very pretty pastel apple green color.  It is nicely opaque in one coat and it is a creme formula.  It's like the China Glaze textured polish in that is has no glitter or sparkle in the formula.  The takes forever to dry!!!  And if you go over on spot more than once while still wet, the texture doesn't come through.  I didn't have this issue with the China Glaze polish.  Also, if you apply 2 coats, the texture is not as visible nor can you feel it as much.  I would actually recommend the China Glaze over the Sally Hansen, but for the price the SH polish is not bad.

Late Night Lilac, by NYC Expert Last Nail Polish is absolutely fabulous.  I love everything about this polish.  It is perfectly opaque in 1 coat, the color is gorgeous and the formula is flawless.  Currently this line of polish doesn't have a lot of colors, but I will be eagerly awaiting more.

Stay Polished at All Lo'Rain!!!!
