So this week I’m going to be cranking out a toooon of nail polish posts. I’m behind on putting some thangs out and wanted to hop to it before the seasons change. About a month or so ago, Hard Candy released several new polishes. And not like 10 or 20. I’m talking like…50. It was a huge new collection and these polishes were landing in Walmart stores nationwide. Beauty bloggers were going crazy because these polishes were just…stunning. And there were so many different shades and formulas. Not just creams and shimmers but holographics and glitters. ZOMG is right. I finally spotted a few of ‘em and between those and the ones I was sent for review, I am so in love with Hard Candy right now.
Beautiful, aren’t they? There are so many more that I want to scoop up. I am nowhere near done with my haul of HC polishes. But these will keep me satisfied for a good…week or so.
Little Bo Pink is a shimmery hot pink. It’s so pretty! And there is something crazy unique about it. It reminds me of sparkling ocean water. Except pink water. Crazy description, I know but I am totally drawn to this pink. And I am NEVER drawn to pink nail polishes. Or the color pink in general.
Black Tie Optional is a white and black glitter with specs of hexagon glitter bits. Yep, it’s cool. I’ve seen a ton of indie brands release a polish like this but I haven’t seen many of the bigger brands pull this off. It’s an awesome top coat and can spruce up any polish.
Crush on Gold is a warm gold foil. It’s not super spectacular but if you dig foils, you’ll like this one. I loved how smooth the formula was. It was nice and smooth at only 2 coats.
Tinsel Town is a purple and gold glitter meshed with turquoise glitter. It’s pretty much New Orleans in a bottle. I layered it over Crush on Gold for some extra bling!
Gummy Green looks like mint chocolate chip ice cream on the nails, uh? The black and white specs stand out beautifully against the mint base.
Cotton Candy Pink is a baby pink with purple and silver glitter and teeny hexagon specs. I think I love this one more than Gummy Green
This is my first time trying Hard Candy nail polishes in a loooong time and I was impressed. The quality of these were spectacular. I applied 2 coats for each polish (except for the last 2. I used 3 coats for those babies) and formulas were all nice and smooth. Go Hard Candy!
