Swatches of Hard Candy New Polish Collections

Yesterday I wrote all about the 5 new Polish Collections that Hard Candy just came out with, well here are the swatches of the five shades I was sent.
From the Crushed Chrome Collection, Crush on Amethyst is a lilac purple foil with flashes of Gold and its GORGEOUS!!!

From the Itsy Glitzy Collection,  Pinch of Spice is a bright orange with gold shimmer, this polish is on the sheer side, so I used 3 coats for the swatch below.

From the Crystal Confetti Collection, Hip Hip Hooray has a sheer purple base with large silver hexagon shaped glitters, large black hexagon shaped glitter, medium blue hexagon shaped glitter, medium pink hexagon shaped glitter and square shaped purple micro-glitter which is shown layered over China Glaze Recycle, 1 coat of glitter is shown for the swatch below.

From the Candy Sprinkles Collection, Sugar Rush has a  milky white base with black, white and silver glitter, this is also a more sheer polish, and I used 3 coats for the swatch below, or you could put down a coat of white first to eliminate the need for 3 coats.

 I really like all 5 shades, there are defintly more colors I'd like to pick up, which you can buy at Walmart.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today is also my husband's birthday, so Happy Birthday honey!

Surprisingly I don't own any regular gold polish, but I realized that if I apply very thin coats of China Glaze Tarnished Gold that they don't crackle and can be built up to an opaque color, so that's the base color that you see and then I topped it with China Glaze Graffiti Glitter
