Nail polish enthusiasts were all a'twitter when we heard that Hard Candy was revamping their cosmetic line and coming out with a bunch of new nail polishes! At first, I wanted ALL of the pretties, but then I calmed down. Today, I have two for you.
Crush On Lava. A supposed dupe for Hard Candy Beetle (apparently it's close, but not a true dupe), it's the polish I most wanted. I love a duochrome! This one is pink and gold/orange.
It has large particle duochrome pigment, so it looks textured, but it's not. I was inspired by this nail art I saw on Raggio di Luna and created my own version with a few rhinestones and a white striper.
Ah, duo-chromey goodness.
Piece of Papaya. Another variation of pink and orange. This one, unlike Crush On Lava, doesn't have the black undertones, it's pure metallic shiny lightness.
I love how it can be the same basic colors as Crush On Lava, and yet look completely different. This is more pink with an orange shimmer, and a chrome/metallic feel to it.
I wasn't a collector of the old Hard Candy, but I know some people still miss the rings that came on the bottle! I like these new bottles, though. Very current. I liked both of the formulas, too. Not bad for $4.
What do you think of the new Hard Candy line of cosmetics? Will you be crushing on lava or getting a piece of papaya?
