When I think of Hard Candy, I automatically go back to 8th grade. The brand has been around for FOREVER. This year, Hard Candy has totally revamped their style and brought out some new polish goodies - five new collections with nine new shades in each! Say whatttt!? That's 45 new polishes! On top of polish, Hard Candy offers a full make-up collection, eyeglasses and apparel exclusively at Walmart.

L-R: Sparkle City, Crush on Lava, Pop of Peach, Little Bo Pink & Glitter Jam

Pop of Peach is a dark peach crelly (creme/jelly) base with red and silver hexes from the Candy Sprinkles line. This reminds me a lot of the Nails Inc. Sprinkles collection (Review is here) but for a lot less cheap. Same formula, same application (which is awesome, btw).

Crush on Lava is a blackened red/gold duochrome from the Crushed Chromes collection. Excuse me while I pass out from the awesomeness of this polish. First off, this duochrome needed no undies! This is three coats all by itself. Secondly, I mean, c'mon. Just look at it.



Little Bo Pink is a neon pink with gold flecks from the Itsy Glitzy collection. This polish screams summer to me. This is two smooth coats. No application problems.

Glitter Jam is a mix of blue, magenta and red hexes in a red tinted base from the Glitterazi collection. This definitely could've been more opaque with about one more coat. Super pretty. No issues.

Sparkle City is a dense silver micro glitter base with random black hexes mixed in from the Glitterazi collection. Another polish that could've been opaque with one more coat. This looks like a mini disco ball on your nails. No issues although I think I would've loved this more without the random black hexes.

What do you think of this collection? I absolutely loved Little Bo Pink and Crush on Lava. Which ones are your favorites?
