Oh-ho~ what a surprise (no it's not)… another sprinkle nail polish post!
Honestly though I just can't help myself; if you've followed my blog even the littlest bit before my semi-hiatus this summer then you'd know I'm an avid nail polish fan (hoarder). Then add into the mix that the last couple of months have been horrendous for me because of summer school and you have my current obsession with sparkle packed nail polishes. Because what better way is there to improve your mood other than a bit of jazz on your nails? In my world, the answer is simple: nothing.
I was oh-so sweetly (see what I did there?) sent this nail polish by my lovely nail blogger friend Stephanie over at Short 'n Chic a long while back and, truth be told, this polish was probably the highlight of the care package. The sprinkle polishes that Hard Candy came out with (how long has it been now? My mind is saying "years" while my intuition is screaming otherwise) were something I wanted to get my hands—and nails—on so so badly but couldn't bring myself to go to a Walmart to get. For whatever reason I never seem to live very close to a Walmart location (it's the only place Hard Candy cosmetics are sold, for those of you who didn't know), Target or Walgreens was always closer, and I just plain old don't like Walmart haha. Thankfully though, Stephanie fulfilled my nail-polish-needy soul and shipped the color I had been lusting over… chocolate covered bliss doesn't quite cover how freaking delighted I was to unwrap this polish from its bubble wrap and slap it on my nails.
The formula was ever-so-slightly gloopy but, truth be told, I was so happy to use "sweet tooth" that it didn't bother me. It's kind of expected (at least to anyone who knows nail polish) for polishes packed with glitter to be on the thicker side though so it really was no big deal. The sprinkles laid flat on the nail and, since the polish was so saturated with the stuff, there was no need to 'go fishing' in the bottle like you have to with a lot of glitter nail polishes (this particular polish comes to mind). As you can see in the photos above, "sweet tooth" is full of blue, pink, and white sparkles all suspended in a milky, semi-sheer periwinkle base. The combination of colors and finish make this polish super whimsical and playful; basically it's right up my alley.
Thank you so much (times a billion) Stephanie for sending this polish (and the other goodies) my way… truly, I'm still overwhelmed with the kindness packed into that box. Working my way through the polishes has been so fun and I've found many gems through your hand-me-downs; Hard Candy's "sweet tooth" is definitely one of them!
Have you tried out the sprinkle polishes from Hard Candy?
Love 'em? Hate 'em?
Do you make special trips to Walmart for the Hard Candy section (am I the only one too lazy to do so?)?
