 I was sent a few of these new releases to review, but I will breaking them up into 2 posts!

This post will contain 4 Hard Candy Nail Lacquers – 2 from the Itsy Glitsy Collection and 2 from the Crushed Chromes Collection!  All of the nail lacquers I received were gorgeous, but these 4 were my absolute favorite!

Ready for the swatches?

Crush on Lava:

Crush on Lava is beautiful!  It has a beautiful coppery red to a red tone purple shift with some shift of gold.  I used 3 coats for this mani and a glossy top coat!

Little Bo Pink:

Little Bo Pink is a gorgeous shimmery bright pink.  This was the sheerest of the ones I received and I used 4 coats for this mani and a glossy top coat.


Little Bo Pink CU

Look at that shimmer!  Perfect for Spring/Summer!  So girly and fun!

Bity Blue:

Bity Blue full

Bity Blue is a must have!  This is a beautiful medium aqua blue foil and it shifts to a deeper blue and even a touch of purple!  I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat!

My favorite shot of Bity Blue!  Look how beautiful and vibrant this is!


Bity Blue CU

Just beautiful!

Overall – I love these 4 polishes!  Little Bo Pink was a little on the sheer side, but the layers dried fast enough that it didn’t put me off too much.  All 4 colors are vibrant, well pigmented and the color shifts in 3 of them were beautiful!

Make sure you keep an eye out for Part 2!  It will contain a few from the Candy Sprinkles, Crystal Confetti and Glitteratzi Collections!

Hard Candy Nail Lacquer retails for $3.97

Where can you find these?  In Walmart as well as HardCandy.com

What do you think?  Will you be snagging any of these?  I have my eye on a few more!
