Hard Candy Crushed Chrome Collection Swatches & Review

Hard Candy Crushed Chrome

The Hard Candy Crushed Chrome Collection, which is another Walmart exclusive, has made up for the Crystal Confetti nightmare from earlier! Aren’t you glad?

This nine-piece collection features super shimmery, metallic shades. They all have a heavy gold shimmer in them and the formula was absolutely fabulous. Thick, yet creamy and smooth, and great coverage in just two coats. Not shown are Crush On Pink, Crush On Tin and Crush On Lava.

Now we’re talkin’!

Hard Candy Crush On Gold
Crush On Gold

Crush On Gold is a cool-toned gold with warm gold glitter.

Hard Candy Crush On Amethyst

Crush On Amethyst is a warm purple with heavy gold glitter. Wow this color blew me away once it was on my nails. It’s so pretty and rich, and my favorite one.

Hard Candy Crush On Raisin
Crush On Raisin

Crush On Raisin is a warm pink/brown with gold glitter. Another one I wasn’t expecting to look so amazing.

Hard Candy Crush On Copper
Crush On Copper

Crush On Copper is a bright orange with gold glitter. Very saturated and rich.

Hard Candy Crush On Ivy
Crush On Ivy

Crush On Ivy is a vivid green with gold glitter.

Hard Candy Crush On Caribbean
Crush On Caribbean

Crush On Caribbean is a deep blue with heavy gold glitter. This one is far cooler in person than any photo I could take of it. The gold and blue looks really amazing in person, trust me! It’s not just a blue, you see tons of gold flashing around in different lighting.

Overall: Great collection! Really cool colors and the formula was really great. This is what I always hope for in a collection. Because they are metallics they dry really quickly as well. They do leave glittery pieces behind on your nails and fingertips when you remove them, but not as bad as regular glitters. If you could only get two I would suggest Crush On Amethyst and Crush On Caribbean. But the others are awesome also!

Availability: Walmart only.

Pricing: $3.97 for 0.26 oz.

Do you see anything here you shall be hunting down?

    Although I’m not a huge fan of these types of finishes, I have to say, I’m impressed by these. Crush on Caribbean is gorgeous. It is really one of the most amazing blues I’ve seen in a long time.

    Isn’t that gorgeous purple one a dupe of the old Hard Candy “Mr. Wrong” (which was a dupe of a Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear limited edition polish as well)? One of my favorite polishes ever, I think. I have the SH one myself, but I’ve seen comparisons done and they were definite dupes. It only makes sense that Hard Candy would recycle this color and also add more with the same great formula and finish.

  • March 4, 2013

    WANT. Seriously. Are these actually out in stores now? If so, I’m gonna have to run to Walmart.

  • March 4, 2013

    Crush On Amethyst is my favorite! I hope to find that one, along with Crush On Lava.

    I picked up Crush on Lava yesterday and boy did you miss a beauty!! It flashes pink, green, gold, bronze and purple! I was shocked when I put it on. Truly beautiful and I have nothing like it. You NEED it Kelly!!

    • March 5, 2013

      I just got Crush On Lava tonight, put it on just now, and I’m in love with it! Sooo pretty. It’s duochrome in the bottle, but not sure on the nails since my lighting is not the best.

  • March 5, 2013

    These rock! I’m “crushing” on almost all of them and after glimpsing a bottle pic, would love to see Crush on Lava too. Lucky you, Ashlyn! :)

  • March 5, 2013

    Crush on Gold looks to be a near dupe of Zoya Ziv.

    I must have copper, and maybe Carribean. I’ll have to stop by walmart nad check these out ;)

  • March 5, 2013

    Wow….this is such a gorgeous collection! I want them all!
