Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Review & Design Ideas

Finally got a chance to try out these great bar glitter polishes from Sally Hansen called Fuzzy Coat. At first I had only purchased two, but I loved those so much I went back for a third pink one. I wish I could take them all home with me!

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Nail Polishes


  • Price – About $6.00 – $8.00 from mass drug stores and on Amazon
  • Description – These are colored bar glitters, usually two per bottle, in a clear base
  • Best Use – Glitter topper
  • Size – 0.31 oz/9.17 ml
  • Packaging – Elongated polish bottle with a chrome cap.
  • Brush – Slightly longer than standard sized brush (probably to compensate for the longer bottle).
  • Ingredients – 3-Free.
  • Cruelty Free – Not tested on animals.
  • Formula – Medium thickness, will probably eventually need a little thinning. Glitter is easy to work with and spreads out evenly
  • Opacity – Does not go on opaque without at least 4-6 coats, but looks good with just 1 coat and even better every layer you add on! I like it best with just two thin coats.
  • Color – True to bottle
  • Dry Time – Like most glitter fairly fast, about 7 minutes to tacky and 15 minutes to dry.
  • Durability – Lasts crazy long. Mine didn’t chip for about 6 days and I am very hard on my hands.
  • Removal – Not fun, unless you use a good glitter removal method and pure acetone, or better yet DIY Gentle Glycerin Acetone
  • Staining – None that I noticed.
  • Ease of Use – Actually fairly easy to use, but it can be a bit tricky at first learning to get an even coat. Just took me a few nails of practice to get the hang of it. The dabble method works well here.
  • Recommend It – Yes, I really love these! They are a super fun addition to my nail polish collection. Very unique.


  • Experiment on paper layering over different colors, these are really fun to play with and look great over all sorts of colors
  • Use the dabble method if you want to get a thick coat fast
  • Cover with two thicker coats of clear top coat if you want a smooth finish. Otherwise you will  have a “fuzzy” texture, which I don’t mind at all and actually liked
  • Use a good glitter removal method with DIY Gentle Glycerin Acetone so you don’t dry out your cuticles but get the full power of 100% acetone for easy removal

Design Ideas

I had a lot of fun experimenting with these, there wasn’t enough time to try out all of my ideas. Here is a another referee, black and white manicure since I had a scrimmage today:

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Tweedy Gradient

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Tweedy Tips & Moons

Tweedy Tip & Moons – Get The Look

For this look I used:

  • Orly – Dazzle (silver base)
  • Sally Hansen – Tweedy (fuzzy coat)
  • China Glaze – Liquid Leather (black for tips & moons on second look)
  • Nailene – French Tip Guides

Sally Hansen Fuzzy Mojito Fantasy

Great for summer, mojito nails!

Mojito Fantasy – Get The Look

First paint your nails a white base, then using a wet sponge apply a white to green gradient. Fill in the gradient using lots of little green dots. Use two coats of fuzzy coat in a gradient effect on the top third of the nail. Put a thick line of clear polish on your nail tip and dip in white glitter to create a ‘sugar rim’. Put a lime on it, so refreshing!

For this look I used:

  • Sinful Colors – Snow Me White
  • Kleancolor – Neon Green
  • Sally Hansen – Fuzzy Fantasy (fuzzy coat)
  • Lime – Fimo/Polymer slices (from a nail wheel)
  • Craft Glitter – White
  • Bundle Monster – Small Dotting Tool
  • Kitchen sponge cut in pieces and dampened

Sally Hansen Purple & Pink Woollite Princess

Love the way this one turned out, so girly!

Woollite Princess – Get The Look

First paint your nails a base of light pink. Next using a damp sponge dabble a purple/pink/light pink gradient over your nails. Apply two even coats of fuzzy coat, then top with a iridescent glitter for added sparkle!

For this look I used:

  • Wet n Wild – Tickled Pink (wild shine)
  • Wet n Wild – Lavender Creme (wild shine)
  • Wet n Wild – On A Trip (megalast)
  • Sally Hansen – Wool Lite (fuzzy coat)
  • Wet n Wild – Hallucinate (wild shine)

  1. Shayna

    I tried these out and didn’t love them. With that being said, I absolutely love your designs!! If I was only as talented as you, I would totally try out your ideas :p.

    • Thank you Shayna! I wasn’t sure I liked them at first either, but after some experimentation and trying over and over, I found ways to use them that I LOVED. Not sure it is talent, as much as practice! I would go for it and try something fun!

  2. I have the black one and I absolutely love it! The effect is so different from other polishes I own. I love the designs you did with them, looks really great!

  3. Hi! I came here from Will Paints Nails for Food feedback form. I love the layout of your blog, and I love the follow options/search options up top that scroll along. I like the way you’ve done this review with the different looks, and I like your photos. I actually don’t have any feedback – what a lovely blog!

    • Hello Jessica! Thank you for your nice feedback, it’s all really helpful. I’m hoping that my polish review posts are one of the things that make my blog “different”, so I am really happy you noticed!

      We just added the pink sticky navigation bar yesterday using a plugin called “Sticky Notification Bar” v1.0.4. I’m lucky to have a best friend who is also a web programmer, so I might be a bit spoiled, lol!

  4. Hello there. I came through Will Paint Nails For Food’s Blogger’s Bootcamp and I hope you’ll find my input useful.
    First of all, I find your layout very interesting. The locked header is well set up without being overpowering. I don’t like locked headers, but I like yours. Your homepage is clear and well organized, I just find the header image and font too different from the rest of the blog. The social media cloud is awesome. I think the bullet points make your reviews different from many. One can easily find the info they are looking for and the idea of providing different ideas how to use a product is really a nice touch.

    • Hi Vedrana! Thank you for taking the time to critique my blog. This has been such an interesting project! Like I mentioned to Jessica above, the sticky navigation bar is new and I am SO glad it is going over well.

      The social media cloud was a happy accident (joke? at first) graphically, then a labor of love to program. And of course, thank you for the nice comments about my reviews! They are fun posts to write and try to get creative with the designs.
