Apparently plain nail varnish just isn’t cool enough anymore. You need a textured finish to ensure you’re really down with the kids – something that, until now, I just wasn’t prepared to get behind. I’ve written before how I don’t quite understand feathered, cobbled, leatherette finishes on the nail, but with their latest launch Sally Hansen have a collection I can really get my head around. Their ‘Fuzzy Coat’ nail polishes are effectively a triple colour mix of matte glitter flecks that, when mixed in a high concentration, create a unique finish on the nail. Unlike so many of their glitter counterparts, these topcoats actually contain enough ‘texture’ to actually create a strong result after only one coat. They can be worn alone for a truly unique look, or over a strong base colour to contrast against the tones in the ‘Fuzzy Coat’ finish. I love many things about these unique polishes – their simplicity, their ease of use, their longevity and their ability to match multiple outfits thanks to the different colours in the flecks. So many times I have to change my polish to match a new outfit, but with these multi-coloured flecks being matchy-matchy isn’t such a priority. You don’t even need a topcoat over these (as effectively that’s what they are,) but they still provide up to five days chip-free wear. Finally a nail trend I’m cool enough for.
The collection will be available from Superdrug and Boots this July priced £6.99 each
