Hey everybody! How is your week going so far?
I may not have spent the past few months blogging about my polish purchases, but I did in fact *make* polish purchases. :) On one of my more recent polish shopping jaunts with Mr. Sweets, I picked up two of the new 2015 releases by Hard Candy: Wild Child and A Mermaid's Tale. I was drawn to the former due to its combination of duochrome and glitter. I purchased the latter because I always buy polish with mermaid names...I think there must be 72 out there named Mermaid's Tale.
So this particular A Mermaid's Tale is a medium electric blue shimmer that has a slight green undertone.
The formula is good, with an easy and non-messy application. It's a little sheer so you may want to use 3 coats. And what is up with my fingers in these pics? They look absolutely cadaverous. Oh well..early Halloween! :/
Wild Child is the more complex of the two. It's a medium purple shimmer with a slight green duochrome that doesn't really translate on the nail. But in my opinion, Wild Child's best feature is its blue microglitter. Yay sparkle!
Mmmmm...shimmer. And tiny blue glitter. Niiiice. Wild Child is also a sheer little number...I'm wearing three coats in the pics, which covered up Mr. VaNeLi quite nicely.
So has Hard Candy been releasing anything lately that has gotten your attention? I'm always on the lookout for interesting drugstore/big box store polishes. Hard Candy polishes are sold at Wal-Mart (which I avoid like the plague...but you know) for $4 each.
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day! :)
Both colors are nice for fall. I own something very similar to them so they don't feel very unique to me.ReplyDelete
They're not unique...but they're such cute little bottles. :DDelete
Cadaverous? Not the preferred nomenclature, dude. Elegantly pale, please!ReplyDelete
No, no! Not my color!! I <3 that! I was referring to that arthritic nonsense. :/Delete
Oh WOW these are both gorgeous :-DReplyDelete
:D And you know something? They had a pretty good wear time for a cheapie!Delete
