Today I have the new Sally Hansen Velvet Texture polishes to show ye. This is a small release with only 3 polishes in total but it's an interesting one. The end result (as you can guess from the name) is a velvet look (matte with a bit of a sheen) and a slight textured feel. They look more textured than they feel. You don't have to worry about your nails snagging on your clothes or anything like that.
The first one I have is Velour. This is a lilac shade with a good formula. 2 coats and it is fully opaque. I found this to be a tad bit thicker than the other polishes. It's not something that will really affect your application in any way but I just happened to pick up on it. I like this colour. It looks really nice with the velvet texture finish.
Next up is 620 Velveteen:
Velveteen is a plain black polish. The formula was very nice on this one. Again I have on 2 coats and it's fully opaque, I think the texture look really suits this polish. I haven't come across a black texture so it's a nice change from the regular polishes.
Finally I have 670 Lavish:
Lavish is a raspberry shade. It's a shade or 2 darker than what you seen in the pictures, Like most raspberry polishes my camera had a hard time picking up the exact colour. Formula wise I only needed 2 coats for full opacity. The texture look isn't as strong on this one from my experience. It is still noticeable though so no worries about that,
Overall this is a nice little collection. I happen to like the textured effect range and I think this is a nice subtle alternative to the really obvious glitter textures. Removal is pretty easy, it's basically a normal polish in that sense. I would like to see some plain matte/velour polishes from Sally Hansen. That would be such an interesting addition to their range.
Each bottle costs €6.95 at the moment and you can find them in the usual pharmacies that stock Sally Hansen polishes.
