Hard Candy Cosmic

Oh,Hard Candy.Why did you stop making nailpolish? You had some awesome colours back in the day.Pimp,Sushi,Porno,Sky, some of my favourites that I foolishly threw out before I knew about nail polish thinner. But for the intrepid (or crazy) nail polish addict they can be found on ebay,being sold at some ridiculously high prices.Fortunately for me,this one wasn't.Even with the exchange rate from pounds to Cdn dollars, the price was very affordable. Good thing,because this is some old school Hard Candy and I love it.
First of all it's pink,which makes it love-able by default.Secondly,it has a beautiful iridescent shimmer-at some angles it looks beige,but not enough to be considered a true duochrome.And last but not least,this one has glittah! Silver glitter to be specific.It had all of the usual suspects of being drab but then they had to go and add glitter to it. I'm a sucker for sparkly things!

This is three coats, taken indoors with no flash

I will pick a winner for my giveaway soon.As usual I went and made the rules super-complicated so I've been checking and double checking everything to make sure it's all good.The announcement will come shortly after that :)

Have a great evening!
Ginger-who shocked my mother when I showed her exactly how much nail polish I had.She wants me to give some away-Ha! As If!

  2. Ooooh, GORGEOUS! What a great find, I'm glad you got it for a reasonable price. I often shudder when I realize how many VHTF polishes I threw away "back in the day". Ugh.

  3. I have this and love it. I think it's a foil. When you remove it it becomes silver like all foils.

  6. You came clean to your Mother! How brave and crazy. That made me laugh when she said give some away. Gorgeous shade on you. I never owned any of the old Hard Candy's. I don't know why. I also gave away a load of polishes. They are also HTF's now. Makes me sick when I think of it.

  7. Lucy-Thank you <3 I laughed too :)Whenever I tell her I'm a collector she doesn't understand.I've given up trying to explain it to her.I only bought a few Hard Candy polishes because the price (12 or 13 bucks) was a little expensive for me back then.I recently saw a polish I used to own being sold on evilbay for 30 bucks! It made me sick to think of how I just tossed it.

    ABOP-Thank you :)
