Hard Candy Just Nails: Swatches, Review
|Collection: Hard Candy Just Nails, Nail Color 0.35 oz|
|Buy it: Walmart Stores|
Now that you've seen a preview of Hard Candy's new makeup line, are you ready for some yummy eye confection? If you're not familiar with the brand, Hard Candy was founded in the mid 90's, best known for their sky blue and pastel colored nail polishes. They've recently teamed up with the largest retailer in the world, Walmart to bring you cost effective, higher-end cosmetics.
Just Nails is a range of 16 new nail colors. Each shade is included with an oversized plastic ring, similar to older bottles. And the formula is just as wonderful as I remember. Although some of us might find the opaque colors are bit more thicker than usual, but no big deal. Just apply in thin coats.
Let's get to swatches!
Mr. Wrong is anything but wrong, it's a bad-to-the-bone amazing shade that you have to see in person! A smokey purple with silver and gold glitter! Just fabulous!

Envy is a gorgeous, deep blackened green shimmer.
Sweet P is a yellow green pea colored glitter.
Date Night is a pink glitter in a clear base.
Hot Pants is a sheer pink jelly with large hexagon shaped glitter. It makes a great topper over any nail polish.
Break Up is a clear glitter with smaller hexagon shaped glitter that shifts different colors depending on the lighting and base color. Another great topper over any nail polish.
Oh, yeah Frenzy is uber hot! An opaque sky blue creme that's a classic Hard Candy color.
Splendid is a soft buttery yellow.
Lava is a red orange loaded with an insane amount of glitter. Similar to Mr. Wrong's texture.
Mr. Right is an opaque Navy Blue with shimmer.
Sugar Daddy is pretty spectacular when used as a topper. It's similar to CND's Colour and Effects line. A sparkly sugar topping that coordinates with any nail polish. Check out one more example below.
Don't you just love the gold over green? Hard Candy's Evny would also look super hot!
Hypnotic is another candy topper similar to Sugar Daddy. A sheer pink loaded with gold, pink and subtle purple glitter.
Overall, great collection! Price is right and budget friendly. The application and formula is right on. A variety of 16 colors ranging from shimmers, glitters and cremes. Readily available at most Walmarts.
Make sure you bookmark this page; I'll be adding more Hard Candy nail swatches soon. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I usually don't like sparkles - they're too hard to remove; but I'm really liking date night. Thanks for the swatches!

I love your swatches! I wore Lava last night - I've come to the conclusion it's glass-flecked, not glitter, because it was way too easy to remove!!! These are great colors! I can't wait to wear Mr. Wrong :) I tried 3 local Walmarts before I found the winner :)

I checked my wal-mart last Tuesday and they didn't have it out. I came back on Thursday and they had everything out but had already sold out of frenzy! I was so disappointed, I need that shade!

I just ordered them off wal-mart.com....They dont have those names listed, so I hope I bought the right ones I wanted :)

Your swatch of "Lava" is the *only* one that I've seen that's true-to-life. Every other one I've seen has made it look like a weird sheer, jelly-like texture. Yours is the one that made me go out and buy it. :) As soon as you said "similar to Mr. Wrong", I was sold, cuz I LOVE that polish! Thanks! xoxo
