Top: "Fuzz-Sea" / Bottom: "Peach Fuzz"
I saw these on display at Target when I was buying some tampons the other day and figured "you know what, my uterus is in knots and my vagina's bleeding so why not treat myself to something pretty?" ESPECIALLY since I have been wanting one of these types of polishes since they started popping up on UK blogs; I'm not sure if they just launched in the UK first or if they're just really scarce here in the states but either way this is the first time I've seen any sort of finish like this within my reach.
And reach I did folks.
Reach. I. did.
And what better time than now to put this post up? Happy Gilmore is on TV (even though I own the DVD... is anyone else a bit of a self-sadist and make themselves sit through commercials like I do??) so I'm feeling all sorts of fuzzy with nostalgia; it's one of my dad's favorite movies so we watched it all the time as kids and even now I can't help but snort with laughter throughout the stupidity ("YOU'RE GONNA DIE CLOWN!!!!!").
Either way, this isn't a movie post!! Take the jump and let's get onto the (picture heavy post of) fantastic 'fuzzy' nail polishes shall we?
I'm going to start things off with "Fuzz-Sea" because... well, because it's what I painted my nails with first.
My creativity is astounding, I know.
"Fuzz-Sea" is a gorgeous mix of bright aqua-teal and pistachio green sprinkle... flake... things. Can we just stick with sprinkles? That's what they remind me of and calling them 'fuzz' seems off since they aren't actually textured as such.
Regardless, they're suspended in a clear base so you need to layer this polish over a solid polish (I used Maybelline's Color Show "Go Go Green" this time around) if you want an opaque look. I only needed one coat of "Go Go Green" plus 2-3 coats (depending on the nail) of "Fuzz-Sea" to get the effect I desired.
I thought this looked absolutely stellar and was utterly and completely different from anything else I have coated my nails with (and I have put everything from rhinestones to bows on my nails so it's pretty hard to surprise me nail polish-wise). I couldn't take my eyes off them!! That was until...
... until this beauty begged for some action.
How could I say no to that beautiful peach fiesta in a bottle???
Urban Outfitter's "Hangover" was made for "Peach Fuzz"; seriously, they are the perfect compliment to each other. The Crayola mac-and-cheese orange looks so fresh and fun paired with the yellow sprinkles in "Peach Fuzz" so it really does end up reminding you of a fuzzy peach... or Big Bird, I can't really make up my mind.
I just can't get over how fun these polishes are!! Sure they're a little gloopy and take a few coats to bring the opacity to up to par but if you're willing to put in just a teensy bit of effort you'll have a nail effect that catches everyone's eye.
Have you tried Sally Hansen's new Fuzzy Coat polishes?
Love 'em? Hate 'em?
What's your favorite 'special effect' nail polish at the moment?
