Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Swatches

Hi everyone!

As you may remember from my last post, I was very excited to find Sally Hansen Sugar Coats in Clicks a few days ago. I love textured nail polish so I couldn’t wait to test it out and I got swatching! There are 8 colours available: Cherry Drop, Razzleberry, Sugar Fix, Cotton Candies, Sour Apple, Bubble Plum, Lick-O-Rich, and Sweetie. I got the first 6 of those – the two I didn’t get are Lick-O-Rich, which is a black texture, and Sweetie, which is yellow. I decided I don’t need another matte black texture since I have Nails Inc’s Leather Effect one and although it’s textured in quite a different way, I doubt I’ll ever use them both up. I also steered clear of the yellow since yellow doesn’t suit my skin tone, but I’m sure some people like it 😉

All swatches shown below are two coats, and the colours were pretty consistent. They applied easily and the texture developed as they dried. The white had a slightly thinner formula but it still applied well and looked good after two coats. And here we go:

Tip Top Hamper – Swatches and Comparison

Hi everyone!

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to win a hamper from Tip Top Nails South Africa. They have regular competitions on their Facebook Page and I was the lucky winner of one! Tip Top has two ranges – Tip Top Nail Chic and Nail Addict by Tip Top. Since I already owned quite a few of the Nail Chic polishes I thought I would probably receive some duplicates, but to my joy all of the polishes I received were new to me. Here’s what came in the hamper:
