Hard Candy Adventure/Review

I know there are a lot of Hard Candy Polish reviews out there but I want to tell what I went through just to get these. Also you will find swatches of the ones I managed to get. Warning: Pic Heavy.

I had been to 3 different Wal-Marts over the course of about 3 weeks searching for the new Hard Candy Polishes. None of them had them in stock. Finally, one day I was there with my mom to pick up some chicken for supper on an overnight with her. I decided to check once again. Guess what! Still no polishes. So we decided to ask someone if and when they would have them. I waited around for about 10 minutes and finally I see a worker walk around the corner and give the shelves a once over then she disappeared. So I walked around checking out other polishes and I hear an "Excuse Me, can I help you?"

I waited on this worker as he scanned the display shelf and told me he would check in the back because it said they should have some. So I walked around some more. While waiting for him to return this is what the display shelf looked like.

He then returns with a box. I literally sat on the floor in Wal-Marts nail polish aisle for an hour and a half helping him unbox 4 of each of the 45 polishes. Each tiny box had 2 polishes to it.

After an hour and a half we finally had them all out for me to look at. OMG I was in love with every last one of them. I wanted to take them all home. I was unable to. I managed to select 6 of them, which was a very hard decision. These are the 6 that I chose.

Onto the swatches. First up we have Piece of Papaya and Sparked up.

Piece of Papaya 632 is a shimmery pinkish coral color with an orange/gold hint to it.I only applied 2 coats.

Sparked up 673 has green and blue bar glitter. I only applied 2 coats.
Next up we have Glamour Girl and Glitter Jam.
Glamour Girl 670 has micro pink glitter with larger pink hex glitters. I only applied 2 coats.
Glitter Jam 666 (yes that is the number on it) is a purple/magenta micro glitter with green, yellow, and blue hex glitters. I only applied 2 coats.
For the last 2 we have Mermaid Magic and Hip Hop Hooray
Mermaid Magic 668 has micro teal glitters with larger purple hex glitter. I only applied 2 coats.
Hip Hop Hooray 653 has micro purple glitter, larger yellow, blue, orange and purple hex glitter. It also has even larger white, silver and black hex glitters. I applied two and a half coats. What I mean by that is I applied 2 coats, then went back and filled in any bald spots.
 Each of these polishes cost $4 at Wal-Mart, as long as you can find them.

Overall I am very happy with all of these. I wish I could own every single one of them but unfortunately I can no longer find them. I am also on a NO-BUY until the 23rd of this month (April). I definitely would love to have the entire collection. 


  1. These are so pretty! And hahaha, sorting all of these polishes sounds like hard work! :P

  2. What an ordeal! Although it kind of sounds like opening presents :) I love Mermaid Magic!
