Hard Candy Glitteratzi Collection for Spring Swatches & Review

Hard Candy Glitteratzi

The Hard Candy Glitteratzi Collection is the final of the five new collections that have been recently released at Walmart.

Glitterazi features nine super glittery shades that are actually opaque enough to wear on their own! Or you could add them over another shade for more dimension. The ones I do not have are Glitter Jam, Party Lights and Sparkle City.

Happily these applied much better than the Crystal Confetti Collection ones. I mean yes, they are super messy to remove because of all the fine glittery particles, but they are much more even in application. As long as you shake them before applying, you get a good amount of the large and smaller glitter and it doesn’t all wipe off with a second coat. Nearly all of these are just two coats in the swatches below.

Hard Candy Tinsel Town
Tinsel Town

Tinsel Town features tons of teal sugary-like micro-glitter, and gold and purple bar glitter. I actually like this one, despite the fact that it has bar glitter, which normally isn’t my thing. It covers really nicely in two coats and I like the color combo.

Hard Candy So So Sequin
So So Sequin

So So Sequin features pale pink and holo micro-glitter and medium light blue hex glitter. This is another color combo I love and it also covered excellently. Two coats.

Hard Candy Mermaid Magic
Mermaid Magic

Mermaid Magic has lots of deep blue micro-glitter and medium purple hex glitter. This is another one that works really well in terms of coverage because there is so much of the micro glitter. I like! Two coats.

Hard Candy Fire Flash
Fire Flash

Fire Flash features tons of orange micro-glitter and large fuchsia hex glitter. This one doesn’t have a lot of the larger glitter, so it’s harder to get it on your nails. I used three coats here to get better coverage.

Hard Candy Glamour Girl
Glamour Girl

Glamour Girl has a lot of pink micro-glitter and medium fuchsia hex glitter. Again, nice coverage with just two coats.

Hard Candy Sparked Up
Sparked Up

Sparked Up has blue sugary micro-glitter, and blue and green short bar glitter. This one covers nicely also in three thin coats. I like that the bar glitter is really short so it doesn’t stick up anywhere.

Overall: I liked these more than I expected I would. There are a few I really love which are Tinsel Town and So So Sequin. They applied SO MUCH better than Crystal Confetti, but are still a nightmare to easily remove.

Availability: Walmart only.

Pricing: $3.97 for 0.26 oz.

    they look neat but again, not something i could wear- i would pick at my nails too much.

    I wish I had more attraction for this part of their new collection, but bar glitters don’t do it for me. They look nice on you, but I would go up a wall with them on my nails for some reason. I really appreciate you swatching all these for us Kelly! ♥

    I have Tinsel Town and I like it. I might end up getting So So Sequin and Sparked Up. They’re gorgeous!

    Hey, random question – do you do a top coat on your glitter polishes normally?
    I love glitter polish, but I want it to last and feel smooth – is top coat a good idea in this case?

    They have hit it out of the park with these new releases!

    Thank you so much for swatching this entire collection! I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed looking at all the swatches these past few days. It’s incredibly helpful! I dragged myself to Walmart today because I was ready to purchase a few based on your swatches. Luckily, my Walmart was pretty much untouched. There were a few missing, but none of the ones I wanted! Thanks again for the lovely swatches.

    I love all these new pretties! I had a hard time choosing but narrowed it down to five. I got two of the ones you reviewed here…Sparked Up and Fire Flash. I put Fire Flash over their Little Bo Pink, and it’s beautiful. It was a pain in the ass to get off though.

    Honestly I can’t be bothered to deal with the hassle of polishes like this, but I like how they look. I really give credit to Hard Candy for all these new creative releases.. they really went all out and I think that’s awesome, especially given their affordable prices :)

    I don’t know, the glitter combinations look a bit random… like when I started to franken and didn’t know what combinations would work, so I just added everything.

    Have you tried the glue base coat? Search for it on Youtube.

    Basically, its glue watered down to be a base coat. Then apply the glitter polish. The glue base coat dries clear, so the glitter polish is the only thing seen. Then, when its time to change, the polish pops off. No lie! Pops off!

    One video said when it popped off accidently, she just applied another coat of glue and put the nail polish form back on. Wild!
