I've been into glittery nail polishes, and have been wanting to try Hard Candy. When I finally went to Walmart, I had to get grab one.

Product Review: Hard Candy Candy Sprinkles Nail Polish in #664 Gummy Green

Where to purchase: Walmart and online at hardcandy.com
Price: $4 for 7.8 mL/ 0.26 fl oz.

Made in USA

Description from the website: Candy Sprinkles is a collection of trend-setting nail polish shades that puts the final touch on fingertips and toes with a top-quality formula.
Thoughts: I felt like a kid at a candy store when I was looking at the Candy Sprinkles Nail Polishes. They come in different colors and they're so gorgeous in person! It was hard, but I only choose one. I strongly believe in trying one before you get more. If you get more than one and you don't like the quality, you might regret it. If you like it, then it doesn't hurt to go back to get more.
Here's a closer look at the nail polish. It's very true to color.
Here's a look at the brush. The width of the brush is pretty much the same width of OPI nail polishes.
Here's how the nail polish looks on me. The first, second, and last from the left is 2 coats of nail polish topped with Seche Vite Top Coat. The third is 2 coats of nail polish with OPI Matte Top Coat. To be honest, there's no difference between all of them. They all look the same even in person.

Now for my overall opinion... The consistency of the nail polish is on the medium. It's really easy to apply and it goes on smoothly. There's no streaking and bubbles. I also found it easy to clean the glitters on your skin or at least easier than most glitters I have tried. I loved everything about this polish but one thing. I'm really sadden to say this. The lasting power is extremely short! My nails started chipping in 2 days. It wasn't all small chips at the tip. There were big chunks and sometimes they would dangle on the nails. My hair or piece of cloth from my clothes would get stuck. It got to the point it was so bothersome that I had to remove the nail polish. I only wore the nail polish for 4 days. Let me tell you, removing the nail polish was a nightmare! Since there's so many small glitters, it was a lot of work.

Pros:
* Comes in a varieties of color.
* Medium-width brush.
* Easy to apply.
* No streaking and bubbles.

Cons:
* Only can be purchase at Walmart.
* Lasting power is short, 2 days.
* Hard to remove.

Would repurchase: No!
