NAILS: Hard Candy Polish Swatches & Combos

I'm sure that by now you've heard about and probably seen the newly released Hard Candy 2013 Spring Collection. Within that collection was the release of 45 new nail polishes: 5 collections with 9 new shades in each.  I was offered the opportunity to review some of these new polishes. I received 5, denoted with a "*", and I purchased 3 more on my own, so far. 

The 5 collections consist of 5 finishes. They are Crushed Chromes, Itsy Glitzy, Crystal Confetti, Glitteratzi, and Candy Sprinkles.


Crushed Chrome Collection. Luxurious and timeless hues embellished with a golden textured finish. This collection boasts refinement and sophistication and is infused with a vivacious luster.

* Crush of Amethyst is a jewel-toned purple chrome with a silver undertone. It looks a little darker on the nail than in the bottle, but either way a good shade. I love Chrome finishes.
* Crush of Amethyst
Piece of Papaya, was one of the polishes I purchased and I'm happy I did. This will be a great Spring into Summer selection. You will need 3 coats to not have visible nail lines. This pinky-coral Chrome will look great on tanned skin.

Itsy Glitzy Collection. Intense, illuminating, and incandescent hues saturated with the richest and most extreme mica and glitter. Inspired from the runway and now at your fingertips.

* Bity Blue, you can guess that this was the first polish I planned to purchase, but fortunately, it was one sent to review.  A gorgeous cobalt blue with a foil finish. I must have taken 50-75 pictures of this polish and none of them do justice for this blue with purple undertones.

Crystal Confetti Collection. A unique collection based on artistic expression. Flourishing, adventurous, full coverage shades with various particle sizes and creative textures. Graffiti is revolutionary; it's an outlet to create public art. Now take this artistic and creative expression to your nails.

Party Central, is a fun multi-colored, multi-size glitter with a clear base, as such it will go great as a layer over varying polishes.  I layered it over Orly Snowcone to show the various shapes and sized glitters.

Black Tie Optional was another must have. There are several versions of the black & white glitters from other brands, but I would always pass the up. However, this version just would not allow me to pass it by. And I am so glad I didn't.  I decided to layer it over Sinful Colors Pullover to show the various shapes and size glitters.

* Hip Hip Hooray is a another good layering choice. Its a blue and purple, micro and hexagonal glitter in a clear base. I would suggest waiting for the base to dry so that you can adjust the glitters to your liking.  I decided to layer it over Orly Lollipop to show the various shapes and size glitters.

Candy Sprinkles Collection. Suspended in a clear top coat, shimmery flecks sparkle brilliantly with different shapes of shiny glitter. Candy Sprinkles is a fabulous top coat over any color.

These Candy Sprinkles are very similar to the polishes that Deborah Lippmann ($19), Illamasqua ($16) and Nails, Inc ($9.50) each have.  So if you have been wanting to get them but didn't want to spend the money, Hard Candy has 9 different shades to choose from. This *Jelly Bean Blue, is one I received but I would have purchased it on my own. It's a robin's egg blue with blue & black specks. I'm showing here, 2 coats and it's a bottle match.
* Jelly Bean Blue
Glitteratzi Collection. The combination of confident opposites and intimate tonalities mixed with the right amount of sparkle creates enthusiasm for the vitality of life. The hues are natural and are becoming more evolved and colored. Tasteful tones with all the personality to satisfy every trend setter.

* Mermaid Magic is rightly named. In its clear base, are micro teal green glitters with larger purple glitters.  This is another great layering glitter. I choose to layer it over Orly Gumdrop to show the various shapes and size glitters. 
* Mermaid Magic
So that's all for now. But I'm sure I will be purchasing additional polishes from these collection. Have you bought any yet, and if so, which ones?

Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
* Some of these products were sent to me for review consideration by the creator. These however are my honest opinions. I am not employed by nor was I paid by this company.
