Sunday Mani – eleven – fuzzy monsters with Sally Hansen’s Fuzzy Coat’s

Hey everyone,

turn out, yesterday when I wasn’t feeling so good, I thought I pressed “publish” on my post, but I didn’t.
So excuse me that yesterday’s post was hidden until now…..

Anyway, today I felt better and was able to play a bit with my Fuzzy Coats from Sally Hansen.
I am not really satisfied with the result because some of the monsters don’t look as nice, but I want to show the Mani anyway.

What I used as base color was Ciaté’s PP082 cream soda.

The rest of the colors I used is a huge mix of mostly Ciaté polishes and on top the fuzzy coats.

Sally Hansen collection and nail designs

Hey everyone,

if you follow my blog for a while, you know that I am a huge fan of the american drugstore brand Sally Hansen.
In the USA they sell a big variety of nail care products and of course nail polishes.
They have different types of collections. Some are the Salon Manicure, Diamond Strength, Xtream Wear, Insta Dries and of course  special editions like Fuzzy Coats, the Gem Crush Collection, Sugar Coats and they also sell Nail polish Strips.
In Germany we sadly don’t get the full range of products which I am very sad about.
Mostly we only get some of the nail care and the Salon Manicure. The bad thing, they cost a loooooot more then in the USA.

While we were in New York I bought some of their USA polishes, to try them out since I heard so much good things about their products.

I bought the following:

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength – 460 Save the Date

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength - 460 Save the Date

Sally Hansen Xtream Wear – (left) 390 Red Carpet and (right) 310 Gunmetal

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear duo

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat – 500 Fuzz-Sea

Thanks to Casey, I also own the rest of the Fuzzy Coats now, but I already showed them to you here.

Back in Germany I was so angry at myself for not buying more of the puppies.
The quality is really great and the price in the USA is so good! The Xtream Wear polishes are around 4$ if I remember correctly and the Fuzzy Coats and even Diamond Strength polishes are only about 6$. Here in Germany the Fuzzy Coats were available last year and cost 9 euro, which is around 12,50$. What?

Anyway, that is why I don’t really want to buy them her in Germany, plus I love the Diamond Strength and Xtream Wear more then the Salon Manicure….so that is that….
Recently Rossmann offered 30% on all their nail polish products, which was the perfect chance for me to get some Sally Hansen products here in Germany as well.

I bought two nail care products, Doubble Duty and Complete Care.
I tried them and really like them because they both can be used as base coat and top coat or the Complete Care simply as nail care on its own.

I also bought three of the Salon Manicure polishes. I think the colors of the Salon Manicure Collection are not so special. They are simple but of good quality.

Here are my favorites.

From left to right, 679 – Pennies for Heaven, 630 – Haute Chocolate and 670 – Midnight in New York.
