Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat (All Yarned Up) and Sugar Coat (Sour Apple)

image

Bought these at a steal- only $6 SGD each! (Watsons sells both at $19.90)

I thought I’d be really really impressed by them both because I’ve heard so many raves online, especially about the fuzzy coat, but surprisingly it didn’t appeal to me as much as I thought they would.

All Yarned Up looks better on its own or over a nude colour for some reason.. I expected it to ‘pop’ nicely with a dark base but it wasn’t fantastic. I preferred it on its own. On a side note, this has got to be the most pungent nail polish I’ve had so far. When I opened the bottle I nearly choked up because I was so overwhelmed. I change my nail polish every week, so I’m pretty used to the smell already, but boy, this really takes the cake. 

Application was smooth and I did not need to go fishing because the bars are so dense, but getting them to distribute evenly is a bit of a chore as they tend to clump to one end and leave the sides kinda lacking. I think they would look better spaced out over a base but thicker if over a light base/ on its own.

Sour Apple is exactly like a lumpier and more muted (less neon) ‘Highlight of my Summer’ by China Glaze, down to the chalky look. I swear they are colour dupes. I got Sour Apple hoping to chance the perfect mint green I was looking for, but was slightly disappointed again. I wanted something more green (I guess that’s technically not mint but a light green), but by all accounts this has been the most perfect mint so far.

Application was easy, took about 2-3 coats. Dried really fast and the texture started coming out only as it dried. It is pretty scratch-resistant, don’t add a top coat for this one or you’ll smooth out the lumps.

I’ve done a quick manicure featuring these two polishes (pardon my short nails, it was a school day) and Glittering Garland from China Glaze as a base for All Yarned Up as an accent nail. You’ll notice that the colour clashes a little but I couldn’t get All Yarned Up on its own, it wouldn’t show up as well using my lousy phone camera if so.

What do you think about these two polishes? 🙂

Yay or nay?

Video Review will be up this weekend

I’ll be posting a video review during the weekend!

It’s my first time doing this, so please bear with me >< Actually the only reason why I have decided to try it is because my DSLR is always getting borrowed and stuff… and I’m really too lazy to process pictures.

Usually I prefer to get the photo right while taking, so no editing, because it’s such a pain. I wonder how bloggers like KotaKoti or Xiaxue find so much time and patience to edit their faces because it is such a painful process!! *rage*  The most I can do is airbrush a bit over bad cases of acne  and even then it looks red. So I avoid taking pictures when my acne gets bad… 

I tried changing the shape of my face for a lark one day to try and copy the ‘doll’ look that tons of bloggers are editing their faces to… and needless to say, it failed. My chin and my eyebrows swapped positions or something, and my features went into a 180 degrees rotation. It was pretty funny but I was kinda sad too :/ Oh well!

Oh I wanted to add that I will get really irritated at my face (the grammar seems off here) if I have to spend hours editing my pictures, so I’d rather not do it because I’m stuck with this face for the rest of my life. *laughs*

Don’t worry, I will add the main points down in text too, in case I speak weirdly hahaha! Nope, no captions- I am a total failure with computers and cannot do anything other than navigating the Internet and using Microsoft Word… and turning my laptop on and off. I wouldn’t know how to insert captions, and I won’t follow a script so it will be a long and tiring process to transcribe whatever I say!

Yep, that’s it. To end off, random uncensored picture of me… 

 

Can you recognise me?? 😀

I’m the one on the bottom left! (that’s my usual expression)

Okay, okay, it’s a rendering of me in chibi form, done by yours truly. 😛

Okay it’s not as good I know, my friend azaleias (Instagram username) is HEAPS TONS BAJILLION TIMES BETTER. She hand-draws and colours everything!! The Gaara and Sasori picture was dedicated to me for my birthday hehe 🙂

Sorry for the randomness but hey, you discover new cool things with me everyday!
