Swatch and Review: Hard Candy Nail Color for Spring 2013

Recently I had the chance to review a few of the new Hard Candy Nail Color shades for Spring and would love to show you swatches!  The five shades that I have were very fast to dry which I absolutely LOVE.  There is nothing worse than I lazy nail polish, ha!

First up is Pinch of Spice, a shimmery orange.  I used 3 coats for the coverage you see here:hard candy nail color Pinch of Spice swatchPinch of Spice is a great shade, no?

I only needed 2 coats of Crush on Caribbean for the gorgeousness that you see below:hard candy crush on caribbean hard candy swatches 2013 crush on caribbean swatches hard candy nail swatches

Next is Pink Taffy, which I think is very fun and definitely unique to my own collection.  This pink shade has lots of small round glitter.  I used just 2 coats for the coverage you see below:

For me, thin coats worked best so it would not start to look “clunky” with glitter piling on.  I did not have issues with glitter placement though, there was plenty of glitter and it landed all over the nail just like I wanted.

Next is So So Sequin, this one is a very close second in my favorites!  This shade is packed with loads of fine holographic glitter and mixed with some blue medium sized hex glitter.  What a party!!  I used just 2 coats for these photos:so so sequin nail swatch hard candy glitter nail polish

Last up is Jubilee, a sheer green with all kinds of craziness!  There is fine black glitter, larger light green hex glitter, larger black hex glitter, and orange bar glitter.  Personally this shade was a little much for me, but I know there are plenty of folks who will love this.  My daughter saw my nails and said “Mama, you have zombie nails!”, pretty hilarious :).

Overall, Hard Candy Nail Color has a new fan!  Since all of these shades were great with formula, application, and dry time I would recommend them.  The inexpensive price tag doesn’t hurt either!  These five are just a smidge of all the shades available.  Find Hard Candy only at Walmart,, just $3.97 each.  Looks like the nail polish is not on yet but I’m sure it will be soon!

What do you think of these new shades?

    I like Crush on Caribbean and Pink Taffy best but they are all pretty. My GrandGirls would wear all of them I think. Jubilee would be cute for St. Patrick’s Day 🙂 I will be looking at these on my next trip to Walmart. Thanks
