Sally Hansen Sugar Coat - Sour Apple and Razzleberry

Sally Hansen has launched a line that captures the hot trend of textured polishes.  It is called Sugar Coat.  Today, I'd like to share two of them with you, *Sour Apple and *Razzleberry.  Feast your eyes.
Ring finger: two coats of Razzleberry.  Remaining fingers: two coats of Sour Apple

These polishes are true creams, no shimmer, no sparkle.  Application was a breeze, just two thin coats without top or base.  They dried really fast and though they chipped within a few days, the textured nature of this polish made touch-ups so easy. Razzleberry did stain, as many deep blues do, but otherwise, I was quite happy with these fun colors.

If you try these, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Barielle Brilliant Colors Collection

Feast your eyes on Barielle's *Brilliant Colors collection.  These five vibrant creams are just perfect for the dog days of summer.  Here's a peek:
Colors from thumb to pinky are Straight A Coral, Head of the Class Green, Magna Cum Laude Turquoise, High Marks Purple and Smarty Pants Pink.  I used two coats of each color.

These polishes are packed with deep pigmentation and tons of shine.  Not surprisingly, Head of the Class Green and Magna Cum Laude Turquoise (green and blue, natch) were the standouts for me.  However, each color gets a gold star from me.
