Since I overrode Saturday's normal Swatch It with my haul, I figured a mani Monday was in order to actually do a swatch post for ya. As you'll have seen in the Texas Polish Haul, I picked up a couple more of the Sally Hansen Velvet Texture polishes from the States which weren't released in the UK. The first of these I would like to show you is Plush.
Plush is a gorgeous teal blue with a slightly concrete-like texture, identical in formula and experience with the three UK shades I bought a couple months ago. It dries down to a soft matte finish.
These swatches show two thin coats on all but the index finger, which had a boo-boo and ended up taking a third coat to cover my smudge. I didn't notice it at arm's length, but in photos you can see that it actually does deepen the color a touch.
In case you were curious about the finished texture, I grabbed a macro so that you can see it isn't quite as textured as others, such as the Liquid Sands or the Pixie Dusts, so this may be a formula perfect for those of you who like the look of textured polish but don't like the way it feels or sometimes catches on clothing, etc.
All in all, I'm a fan of this line and I'm still pretty sad that they didn't release the full collection of shades in the UK. I'm very lucky to have the ability to hop across and get unreleased shades from time to time, but that's little to no consolation for other Brit polish lovers.
Hope your week is off to a fine start, and be sure to return on Wednesday to see the nail art I created from this swatch!
