Okay, I admit it, it's been a long time since I was like, "Ooh, Hard Candy! I must go buy something from them!" But back in the day, their nail polishes were fabulous. I seriously think I owned them all at one point. Also, there isn't a Walmart anywhere convenient to me, and since that's where Hard Candy is sold now... well, it kind of just fell through the cracks. But then I saw online that they had just released a collection of new nail polishes - and not just any ol' collection, but one with a whopping 45 shades and I knew I had to seek them out. So yesterday, I went on a special Walmart run (hilarious!) and it wasn't until I got all the way there that it occurred to me that since they're new, they might not even be there yet. And then I got very grumpy. But I turned the corner and - miracle of miracles - there they were! I think I heard angels singing (or maybe that was just the bad Muzak the store was playing).
The 45 new shades are divided into 5 different groups - Candy Sprinkles, Crushed Chromes, Crystal Confetti, Glitteratzi and Itzy Glitz. There are SO many different colors and finishes and kudos to Hard Candy because I can honestly say I wanted about 90% of them. I even liked all the greens and greens are usually the color I covet the least. I think I loved all the chromes the most, which is also weird because I almost never wear chromes, but they were all just so, so pretty. I might've bought, uh, 5 of them. Because here's the even better part - each shade is only $4.00. Thank you, Walmart! (And I can say that as a girl who loves her Target runs!) I also bought a few of the Candy Sprinkles because honestly, as much as I love the thought of those, I don't know if I'll love them on me, so if I can only pay $4.00 to find out that I only want to wear them a few times, all the better. My love for glitter polishes also means that I bought some of the Glitteratzi shades because who can resist a good glitter? Not me! I love using glitter for a pedicure. There's just nothing more fun than a pair of sparkly toes peeking out of a pair of my favorite high heels. Love!
I just bought them this weekend, so I haven't tried them yet, but from what I'm reading online, people love them, so I'm super excited for my next mani-pedi. I can't wait to try a few of them out. And, uh, now that I'm home and looking at them online again, I might just have to make another Walmart trek to pick up some more. At only $4.00, it's like I would be stupid not to, right? RIGHT?!
