Hard Candy Swatch Spam

Press Sample

I showed you the back to school collection from Pure Ice that is at Walmart the other day, and now I want to share some more polish that can be found there exclusively. Hard Candy polishes have been around forever and they remind me of being in middle school and buying the polishes with the matching ring! They've updated their look and I have a few polishes to share with you!

 First, I want to show off this adorable cosmetic bag. It's fairly large so you can fit A LOT of makeup in it and the inside has a protective lining. I like that the bottom has a zipper to either expand them bag OR to zip up your makeup brushes. Isn't that genius? This cosmetics bag retails for $5.92.

Bronze Champion: 2 coats. I LOVE this color. It's a gorgeous bronze metallic polish without the brushstrokes. There's an addition of gold and pink shimmer and it's just really pretty. It's going to be a gorgeous base for autumn manicures. I know I'll be reaching for it.

A Mermaid's Tale: 2 coats. This is a mermaid blue teal metallic polish. It is the perfect mermaid blue color. You want to do as few strokes as possible, as you can see that it can be a bit streaky. It's completely opaque in two coats.

Lace Me Up: 1 coat over A Mermaid's Tale. This is a black and pink matte glitter topper. I like the hot pink against the blue base. I feel ready for the 80s with this combo of colors! It basically would look awesome over any color and it's great for Valentine's Day.

Crush on Hot Pink: 2 coats but minor VNL, so 3 coats for photos. This is an uber girly bright pink with hot pink and violet shimmer. It's almost neon it's so bright! It's another Valentine's Day polish!

Black Tie Optional: 1 coat over Crush on Hot Pink. This will be a great topper for really any color. It has black and white matte glitter with bar glitters and a variety of sizes of hex glitters/

Crush on Pink: 2 coats.  This color is like Bronze Champion and it has a beautiful gold shimmer in the metallic. I love that it's not brush strokey either. I just adore this color. I need to do a gradient with Bronze Champion and this color.

  1. These are really pretty. I hope they fixed the formula. When they first moved over to these bottles, the formulas were thick and awful and dried up super quick.

    1. Well the formulas on these were great--mostly 2 coats. I can't speak for longevity because I've only had them a couple of weeks but I'll definitely keep my eye on them and update the post if needed!

    1. Is it in these types of bottles or the old ones? Obviously the old ones are probably due to age, but maybe there's an issue? I'll keep my eye on these!
