New Hard Candy Polishes Review

Today I've got a look at 10 polishes from the Newly released Hard Candy polishes that are exclusive to Walmart. Hard Candy recently released a total of 45 polishes and these are just a taste of some of the awesomeness that they've unleashed! These retail for approx $4.00 which doesn't break the bank! It seems like a mega deal until you realize the bottle is only .26 fl oz. However compared to other polishes and the quality of these it is a very fair price... I just never have been a mini bottle fan. I will say this elongated mini bottle is more acceptable to me than the normal mini bottles that we are used to seeing. 
If you are having hard time finding these at your local Walmart they are for sale on
You can also check out the Press Release here if you'd like to see high quality images of all 45 colors.

Okay lets push forward to the swatches and reviews! There's a lot of goodies here!

Crush on Raisin
This was the first one I swatched and I honestly wasn't expecting much from it. I put it on and it was like bam, Instant love! It can be a one coater and I love a nice opaque formula. The multi gold fleck foil in is just made this polish sing!

Lil Lilac
It bugs me when the name of a polish refers to a color yet the polish just doesn't come close to the color it's named after. This one to me just looks pink more than a purple lilac. It has a gold shimmer to it but it wasn't quite the gold foil fleck like in the one above. Not a bad polish just wasn't hitting the spot for me.

Bity Blue
I felt a little disappointed with this one at first because in the bottle it has this crazy duo chromatic look where it has this intense purple shift. Once on the nail that purple doesn't really come out, even in the micro shot which usually will show it it's just not there. Even though that purple doesn't pull on the nail this ended up being a crazy blue. It's very metallic, shiny and pops like crazy once on the nail. I will be pulling this out in the future because it makes for a great base for a few glitters I own. 

Crush on Gold
This is a great polish. I loved everything about it. I want to say it's a dead on dupe of Zoya Ziv. I never pulled it to check them side by side but I love Zoya Ziv and this one provided me with that same kind of love feeling. I really do love that gold foil fleck, but it is a pain to remove sometimes since you remove all the polish yet you still have little sparkles that just don't quite want to be removed from all over your skin. 

Celebrate Sequins
I own a lot of sliver holo glitter, but this one felt new to me. It has a nice mix of hex and square glitters along with a smaller glitter size. I wore it over bity blue and the combo was stunning. This is the type of glitter that will look great over any color. 

Glitter Jam
This one is opaque in two coats and it has great coverage for a glitter without feeling super thick on the nail. It's a very fun polish, but these colors just aren't my thing.  

Fun n' Festive
This one just reminds me of Halloween. It's dark and murky and if a glamorous swamp was such a thing, this would be it. It's a black base with three glitter sizes, a smaller green , a medium orange and larger gold glitter. It went on well but I did find myself fishing out the larger gold glitters which tends to be pretty common with larger glitter in general. I also read pumpkin patch off this one but there I go again feeling that halloween vibe with this one.

Tinsel Town
I tried to wear this one on it's own and it just wasn't working for me. I tried again layering it over just a simple black and Magic happened! Bar Glitters just aren't very loved but if they looked anything like this glitter I could see them catching on a lot more! These colors appeal to me and I did enjoy the gold bar glitter being a holo because when the light would hit it just right it really sparkled! 

Pixie Pink
One of the more exciting things about all the New Hard Candy polishes was that they came out with a lot of sprinkle glitters in exciting colors. This is a very delicate polish and I haven't quite made up my mind on whether or not I like these colors together. So I'm on the fence about the colors but I had no issue with the formula. 

Gummy Green
I saved the best for last! Well from the ones I reviewed this one was my favorite. A super Minty green with silver and black glitters.. Yes Please!! I really loved this on my nails and the color is really refreshing and super fun! 


  1. These look awesome! Thanks for the swatches :D I must get some now!

  2. Pixie Pink looks awesome! Too bad we don't have Walmart.

  3. Great swatches! I hope my Walmart gets some more in - last time I checked, the display was totally empty.

  4. I need to go back to Wal-Mart to pick up Crush on Raisin and a couple others that I've been eyeing!
