Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer: Taffy Tart

I recently received a box of full-size samples from Sally Hansen to review for them. In the mix were 6 Sugar Shimmers, 6 Satin Glams and 3 Fuzzy Coats for me to try out, swatch and review! Here is the first installment from the Sugar Shimmer collection.

Now this is an awesome polish! Taffy Tart is a dark navy blue, textured with a sugary feel that is rough to the touch and dries with tiny shimmering specks that show up in sunlight. The bottle says to gently shake and apply two coats. I did three for good measure. It dried fast, less that 60 seconds, and the effect began to appear after about 10 seconds after application. It dries semi-matte and has a tiny glint to it in the sunlight. This polish is definitely one I would wear for  long periods of time and I would also use it as an accent nail. The only problem I found with this polish was removing it. Scrubbing and scrubbing at your nails with a cotton ball soaked in remover is NOT a good idea, so I tried out the glue method for removal which worked fine. Overall, this polish does what it says it will: show off a nice color and have an eye-catching texture that is super fun.


Let me know your thoughts on this polish (and my first swatch) in the comments!
