Today is a special post because I did my first ever swatchfest just for the new Hard Candy release. I don't think I'll do that again. My pictures are all mismatched. I have no rhyme or reason to my pictures. And I did all the pictures outside because I wanted to copy The Polishaholic but it made applying my polish more difficult because it was a bit windy and the polish dried on the brush a little. And I got sad because I took one picture with my phone and it was better than with my DSLR. Oh well. I'll get better one day. ;)
First up is Gummy Green from the Candy Sprinkles line! I surprised myself and only got one milky glitter. To be honest I wasn't too impressed when I first saw swatches of the milky glitters. I didn't like that they used a silver glitter instead of a matte white. I did like this one though, it is a mint green crelly with a mix of small black and silver glitters. I actually liked it a lot more after I applied it. Makes me want to get more from the Candy Sprinkles line. Two coats for the pics below.
Next is Pee Wee Purple from the Itzy Glitzy line! I thought this looked like a duochrome in the bottle, but it was hardly visible on the nail no matter how I angled my nails. It is a beautiful purple glass fleck polish that looked like it had a bit of a golden flash to it. I don't know, maybe my eyes deceived me?
|Doesn't it look like a duochrome?|
|Now this was weird in the shade it looked like a flash of blue and purple.|
|In the sun.|

|In the shade. See how it glows in the shade?|
Next is So So Sequin from the Glitteratzi line! It looks like light pink micro glitters with holographic glitters and larger sized blue hex glitters. It's a glitter bomb what can I say. Looks like a full coverage glitter. I layered it over Pee Wee Purple because I felt like it. Now I wish I saw what it looked like alone. Oh well. Still learning right?
|So sparkly and pretty!|
|Like this picture better but I wanted a bottle shot (see above). :)|
|Look at the holo glitters! So pretty.|

|Taken from my phone! Dang it. Okay the lighting was just nicer here. But man, this is so much better than all the other pictures. Lol!|
Okay, after I put on Mermaid Magic, I just didn't want to take it off. So yes I skipped one. And it looked awesome too. Here is bottle shot of Black Tie Optional from Crystal Confetti line. Will swatch someday! This is a matte black and white glitter bomb! It looks so dense with glitter. I swirled the brush in the polish and it was so fun to watch! There are so many different sized hex glitters and yes there are bar glitters in there too. Looks amazing.
Get thee to Walmart as soon as possible!!!
