Sally Hansen All Yarned Up from the Fuzzy Coat Collection

*Nothing to disclose

Hello! Today I have to show you a polish I picked up last week. Yes, finally the Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Collection has hit the shelves in Australia (well, Tasmania at least). I’m not as excited about the collection as I thought I would be, mainly because I’ve seen plenty of swatches and read many reviews and I’m a bit ho-hum on the overall look. Looking at all the polishes in the collection, there was really only one I thought would be worth getting and that’s All Yarned Up. The reason why I deemed this ‘buy-worthy’ is because it’s the only multi-coloured polish out of the collection and also the one with the most interesting colours.

Essentially, the Fuzzy Coat Collection is a collection of small matte bar glitter toppers in different colour combinations, such as black and white, navy blue and white and orange and yellow. All Yarned Up is made up of pastel blue, orange and yellow matte bar glitters. What you see on my nails is two coats over two coats of the Steamy side of Revlon Steamy Affair from the Nail Art Break-Up Collection. I found the application to be easy, however I don’t think you would achieve opacity until at least three or four coats. Also, removal was way easier than other glitter polishes – maybe because the glitter is so fine?

DETAILS

  • Where to buy: Priceline
  • Cost: AU$9.95 (but I got mine on special for AU$7.96)
  • Volume: 9.17ml
  • Coats to opacity: It’s a glitter top coat, so you’ll need to put it over some undies!

I really like the look but I only like it enough to wear for a couple of days. This is a trend polish I think. Not as cringe-worthy as crackle (but I like crackle polishes, so now I feel a bit contradictory) but I think its popularity will pass. However, it does look fuzzy on the nail, doesn’t it? I was quite impressed with that. I think the delicacy of the small matte glitters works really well. I thought this might be really cool with some kind of Muppets nail art… maybe though it’s the term ‘Fuzzy’ that’s making me think of that because of Fozzie Bear? Anywho, let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!

  1. I still have no idea what to think of this nail trend. I know I’d never wear it myself, but I really actually like it on your nails! Especially with the base you chose! πŸ™‚

  3. Oooh, I need this one. Thanks for sharing. It looks so cute.

  4. Opacity means “see through” — three or four coats would mean less opacity, since there would be more color and you could see less of the actual nail. Just FYI.

    • Hiya, I think what you might be thinking of is transparency. Transparency means see through whereas opacity means not transparent or translucent; impenetrable to light. All Yarned Up I believe needs a nail polish base under it to work best, unless you used a few coats, but it is not opaque like a creme type of polish is.

  5. I like the fuzzies, I was a little hesitant at first because I usually just like plain nail polishes but when I saw the shape of the glitters I thought they would be great to cover the little cracks that appear after a while on my shellac to make it last longer. I tried all yarned up too and put it over pink shellac when the cracks appeared and it looked so cute -like strawberry donuts with sprinkles haha

    • That’s a great use. That’s the thing with textured polishes, you can use them to add a different dimension to your manicure. I will have to try that next time my nails need an update. πŸ™‚
