Hard Candy Candy Sprinkles collection nail polish swatches & review

Hi girls,

By now, you all must be aware of how beautiful and diverse polishes are available in the world polish market. It is a shame that we Indians can't have them easily. I can't get myself to settle down for the limited variety of nail polishes available in the Indian market. And at times like these, eBay comes to my rescue.

After finishing my swatch project, I bought a ton of new polishes :D Quite a few were bought from eBay. Amongst those were these beautiful new polishes from Hard Candy, a drugstore brand from the U.S.

Hard Candy recently came out with a bunch of really cool polishes. The ones I am showing here are a part of the Candy Sprinkles Collection.



All the polishes in this collection are filled with tiny color coordinated hex glitters, mostly black.

Jelly Bean Blue is a light blue crelly with black and royal blue hex glitters.





Peach Pop is a bit unusual, peach crelly with magenta and silver hex glitter.




Gummy Green is a light mint green with black and silver hex glitters.




Shown here are 2 coats of each with a generous layer of top coat.

Application was relatively easy for all three polishes. They tend to show a bit of VNL with 2 coats so the trick to get an opaque look without adding another coat  is to do a thin 1st coat and a medium 2nd coat. This ensures no VNL :)

Hard Candy polishes come in 9ml bottles and the price we will have to pay for them on ebay makes them a little expensive. But these are a good addition to your collection, especially for people with no time to do fancy art on every polish application !!

Price: 3.97$ in the U.S and around Rs.500 on ebay for 9ml. (with combined shipping for around 6 polishes)

Rating: 3.8/5 happi :)

What do you think of these ? Lemme know below :)
