Happy Friday afternoon folks!
I am super excited to show you the COMEBACK of a cosmetics line from years past. It’s Hard Candy. Yep, they have returned only this time, they are selling at Walmart and everything is between $5-6 bucks! Amazingly inexpensive.
Now I will admit, I don’t think I ever owned any of the original Hard Candy nail polish. I did own some eye makeup, but don’t remember having the polish. I remember it being mostly light pinks, blues and pastels, and I was never really into those colors much. But now they do have some darker super cool ones which I bought so I could show you.
The formula on these is pretty good. Some of them were a bit thick so be careful to apply lightly and wait in-between coats. Other than that, I had zero application issues.
Frenzy is a bright sky blue creme. Totally vivid and gorgeous. This was one of the ones that was a little thick so be forewarned. You can see it kinda globbed on my middle finger because I was rushed. You could get away with one coat with this one, but I used two here.
Sweet P is a sheer polish with lime (or pea) green micro glitter. I can’t even begin to image how cool this would look layered over another green! This was two coats.
Hot Pants is a very light purple color with holographic micro glitter and larger hexagon shaped glitter. Really cool on it’s own, but would rock out over something else as well. This was two coats.
Lava is a hot, bright, tomato red packed with gold micro glitter. I seriously love this, even though I don’t wear this kind of red often. This is seems like a very appropriate holiday color. This was super opaque also, I used two coats.
Mr. Wrong is a silvery purple packed with gold and purple micro glitter. This one is simply stunning I don’t have anything else that looks like it. It reminds me a little of Sally Hansen’s Opulent Cloud but a more purple, glittery version. This would be a great Mardi Gras color! This was two coats.
Mr. Right is a deep sapphire blue shimmer. This has that lit from within effect that I love. Though I know there are other colors like this one, I still love it. This was two coats.
Envy is a dark jade green shimmer. This one is RIDICULOUS. And I mean that in a good way. This is an insanely gorgeous green, one of my favorites ever now. It’s very, very similar to Deborah Lippmann’s Don’t Tell Mama, but that one may have a wee bit more blue in it. This would be a great inexpensive way to get the same kind of color. This was two coats.
You can find Hard Candy at your local Walmart now, and these were all $5.00 each!
What do you think, are you sold on the new line? What colors did you have from the old line that you would love to see come back?
