Hard Candy Breakup

Hi everyone! I am finally getting around to posting today... I was with my BFF since first grade today. I never get to see her anymore :(. She took some family photos for us and I am so excited to see how they turn out! We also bonded over our mutual love for cosmetics. <3

So today I am showing you Hard Candy Breakup. Besides their matte topcoat, this is my first time using Hard Candy polish. This is a glitter topcoat and it's super pretty! I haven't come across anything like this before, but I think the China Glaze 2011 re-release of Snow Globe is slightly similar. 

All the Hard Candy colors come with cute rings that match the shade. 

Rather than doing a full mani, I wanted to show what this glitter looks like over different colors. Although, I am wondering if that was pointless because I am not sure how available this shade is anymore.

Regardless- here is the first batch I tried Breakup over. L-R China Glaze 3-D Fantasy, Color Club Pucci-licoius, Wet N Wild Creme Black, and Color Club Get Your Lem-On.

And with Breakup on top:

And since I love glitter with a matte topcoat I slapped some on before taking this off. I used Hard Candy Matte-ly in Love.

And the second set: L-R Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Nopi My Lifesaver, Dr.'s Remedy Bold Baby Blue, Color Club Yum Gum.

With Breakup...LOVE these combos minus the blue...I don't think this looks that great with shimmer.

And again matte- I am so loving the white with matte glitter!

You can find Hard Candy at Walmart for $4. Also be sure to like their Facebook page because they do have the occasional giveaway! So which combo do you ladies like best?
