Hard Candy Polish Swatches

Hey there!  Since I'm new at this, I'm having a hard time getting in the swing of things.  Regardless of whether or not people read this, I will stay the course!



This is a swatch of OPI by Nicole, Still into Pink.  I LOVED this color.  I can't wait to paint my nails with this again.  It is a HOT HOT HOT pink with a matte finish.  I was so excited for the Hard Candy nail polishes that were going to be released at WalMart.  While driving by one of the few and far between WalMarts in Southern California (That is not a joke.  There is 1 WalMart for every 4 Targets) my kids had to pee.  Perfect!!

 
This is "Still into Pink" with a top coat of the Hard Candy polish "Black Tie Optional".  It was the last one in the WalMart that I went to.  The other 2 WalMarts that I went to (one didn't carry Hard Candy at all) didn't have this polish at all.  LUCKY.  I love it!
 

 
Next we have "Mermaid Magic".  This is a aqua and deep purple glitter.  I thought it would look good over a deep purple that matched the glitter (some essence polish, I can't remember the color right now).  I was wrong.  It took away from the beauty of the polish.. a LOT.  Next time I try it over a lighter base.
 
 
 

Lastly, we  have "Sweet Tooth".  I thought this polish would be more like speckled polish.  It's actually a glitter polish in a transparent jelly like base.  In the bottle it looks like blue, on the fingers it clearly looks pink.  I like this although it isn't what I thought it would be.  Above is 3 coats.
