30 Days of Colour [Day 19: Vampy] Sally Hansen Velvet Texture in Lavish

Swatch of Sally Hansen Velvet Texture in Lavish

It's no secret that I love texture, right? So when I saw the new Sally Hansen Velvet Texture line in stores I knew it was something I had to try. Texture that emulates velvet? Sounds awesome to me! And the colour I picked up just so happens to go along with today's prompt for the 30 Days of Colour - 'Vampy'!

What did I think of the texture? Does it really feel like velvet? Check under the cut to find out!

Lavish is a deep and vampy shade that I'm going to call a blackened raspberry. Doesn't that sound deep and lavish? (Ba-dump-tsss!) It took three coats to get full coverage and unfortunately even with that the coverage is still a wee bit patchy from a distance, though you wouldn't guess it from these pictures.

Now let's talk texture. This is definitely a more finely textured polish than most, and I can definitely say my nails feel like they're covered in velvet when I run my fingers over them! It's kind of weird but I kind of love it? Haha. Think more gritty than flocking powder but still soft and without the mess of flocking powder! (Worth the trade-off in my opinion!)

I think this is a fun and (surprisingly) new take on texture. My nails feel so soft and I'm in love with how rich the colour is. My only complaint would be that I wish the coverage was a bit more even.

Have you tried this line from Sally Hansen? What do you think of it? 








Thanks for visiting!! xx

    1. You'll need to pull them out and give them a try! :D I'm really happy with this one, though it's the only one I picked up from this line.

  2. I am normally not a fan of textured polishes without shimmer, but this one I like.
    That macro shot is striking.

  3. Not a huge fan of this particular texture finish since I do like the sparkly ones much more. It does look very edgy and rocker feeling on the nails though.

    1. Yeah, it's a bit more edgy looking than the nice glittery ones for sure. I don't know which I prefer!
