Simply Polish: Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat

Hey, everyone!
It's been a busy week, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to try out my bottle of Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Wool Knot.  

Here's the backstory - I was obsessed with this polish when it came out.  It's $8 a bottle - so I would mostly look longingly at the display and pass it by.  One day, I impulsively grabbed three bottles of it and made a rush for the register.  I figured I would thank myself later for it.  I was wrong.

I realized pretty quickly that if you don't find a nearly perfect match to the polish colors, something  I managed to find a perfect base for the blue, but the peach and lime are still sitting in the polish drawer with no matches.

Then, I noticed how weird the application is.  I had to blob it on to get the complete coverage I wanted, which isn't entirely unusual for a glitter polish, but it has this weird jelly-like consistency that took a long time to dry.  When it dried, it reminded me vaguely of spongy stuff that gym floors used to be covered with...yikes.

Finally - and here's the biggest thing - I don't think it looks fuzzy!  I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting - flocked nails without the actual flocking?  I don't know.  I guess it's just not as interesting as I thought it would be.  I imagine the peach and lime - if I ever were to find a good base for them - wouldn't have a lot of pizzazz since you probably barely notice the effect because of the lightness of the color.

Okay, so enough complaining from me.  What do you think?  Have you tried this polish?  Am I being too hard on it?  Has anyone had a "total win" with it?

**** Oh - as a WONDERFUL side note - since this post could use some good news - the newest set of Bundle Monster plates are available and they're only $16.50 for 26 plates!!!  What?!

I got my bundle monster plates and love them. I plan to stamp away tonight. I am very undecided about the fuzzy coat. I am not attracted to it much. The same with the feather coat by China Glaze. It just seems like I would pick it all off. Do you think you could do some type of nail art with them??

Hmm...this is another good idea. Maybe I could stamp over this stuff..
