Here’s a new weekly feature that I hope you enjoy! I love reading manicure blogs like my friends of All Lacquered Up, Clumps of Mascara, 52 Flavors, KarlaSugar, Seouldiva and Vampy Varnish. Unlike those bloggers, I’m not an expert at-home manicurist, or a regular manicure-recipient. In fact, my nails are often um…shall we say, textured? I struggle to maintain a mani, and my polish is usually chipped. But I’m trying to step my nail game up a bit, and I’m gonna share my weekly nail colors with you!
Last week I got the opportunity to review some Hard Candy products, and can I just confess that the products are giving me all kinds of pleasant surprises. I’d kind of thought of Hard Candy as a brand I loved as a glitter-obsessed teen. But the brand has lasting quality for the adult in me (who still loves her share of glitter!) Reviews of their makeup to come. This post is all about the polish!
Sweet P is a bright acid green, not for the faint of heart and definitely not for those who are conservative in style. These are nails that are meant to be noticed! If you’re fine with that, you’ll probably love Sweet P.
The first coat of Sweet P goes on kind of sparse, but the second coat makes for a dense, all over sparkle – glitter with texture. I’ve been getting teeny little threads caught on my nails because of that, but I don’t even care. I absolutely love this color with my skin tone!
Hard Candy nail polishes cost $5 a pop at Walmart, and judging from the quality of Sweet P, I need to go get some more. The purple glitter colors — Hot Pants and Mr. Wrong — are calling my name!
What are your thoughts, bellas? Would you rock a polish this glittery, or are these kinds of colors best left for your younger years? What are your go-to polish colors?
