Let me tell you a story about a nail polish loving girl who created a wish list of all that fabulous polishes that she wanted and one of those polishes that she wanted was Floam… but every time she went to buy it it was sold out….. after a year or so she decided that it was not meant to be and moved on to other polishes… she brought Sand Art but wasn’t happy. Maybe that was one of the reason she fell so hard for Salon Perfect neon collision collection… seemed like the perfect dupe, but this girl was unlucky and none of her local Wal-Mart’s’ carried that collection, which made her seriously upset…because her Wal-Mart don’t carry anything she likes… one day quite by accident the girl found a coupon in the Sunday paper for Sally Hansen’s Fuzzy Coat and although it wasn’t the same they reminded her of her beloved Floam polish she got it anyway and when I tried it was a mess, but this week I’m willing to try again with something similar so let’s get started …
THIS WEEK’S RANDOM NUMBER IS 225
I used an alternate numbers would be 2+2+5 = 9

So first off let me say thank you, thank you, thank you to my friend Kayly who sent me this nail polish a few months back as part of a care package when I was in the hospital. I specifically waited to use this polish because it reminded me of a sweater that you wear in the fall. As I mentioned above, I’ve had an experience with a similar product and it didn’t work out that well for me. For the Fuzzy coat nail polish it said to continue to layer until the polish was opaque. Oh vey! I used up almost half a bottle and my nails looked liked crap…. so with this “feathered” polish I was determined to do better. Party Fowl is described as a multi colored bar glitter in baby blue, orange and black in a clear base. So it could work with a multitude of colors for a different look, or it your brave enough rock it on it’s own for an opaque look. But my personal favorite is wearing them with a black or white base…. they both give very striking but different looks
So I started with a black base for this one, I felt like using white would be a bit “summery” plus I always feel bad ass when I wear black polish. I made sure to use one of my favorites Sinful Colors Black on Black… you can’t go wrong with that , Now my first impression while putting this on my nail was, “wow, this is pretty thin” which it pretty good because it’s always difficult to control the amount of polish you want on your nails when it’s thick and goopy. I applied two thin coats and bam! an interesting manicure for the Thanksgiving holidays.
There are a couple of things to note; 1. This polish dries really fast, so you won’t be sitting around for a long time waiting to dry. 2. This is a matte polish. 3. This is a textured nail polish so use a few layers of top coat if you don’t want to feel the “feathers”. I decided that I wanted a slight shine so I used my regular topcoat ( I was still able to feel the texture slightly) … and honestly I love the look.
