Hard Candy Sky,plus WnW holiday glitter and NYC glitter.

Hey guys! How are you? It's a rainy night here, and I'm afraid I'm getting sick. :-( I'm sore,hot and tired. I'm also bored out of my mind! Hopefully I just need a good nights sleep, but I just feel blah. I do have on a super blingy mani though! :-)

I started out with Hard Candy Sky. To tell you the truth, I never understood all the hype about this polish. I mean, it is just a pale blue creme right? Since it came out, I have picked it up, and put it down so many times. I finally decided to buy it last night, after seeing a mani someone on the MUA nail board did with it. After using it, I do like it ok. It is pretty, but application was not very good. It was really thin and streaky. I had to use four coats to get it just right. It is a pale blue with a hidden blue shimmer.

Pics. are's been dark and rainy all day.

You can kinda pick up the blue shimmer in this pic.

I then added Wet n Wild Prancer over Sky. Prancer is one of the new Holiday polishes, and I LOVE it! It comes in a really small bottle though. I'm buying as many back up bottles of it as I can find. So far, I only have two. Prancer is a red hex glitter and is perfect for layering. It applies very well, and I used one coat.

Next, I added a coat of NYC Starry Silver glitter. SSG has pink and blue hex glitter and small silver glitter. Application was good and I used one coat.

Soo...what do you guys think? Is it too much? Do you like it best alone,with Prancer or all three?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :-)


  1. I love it with the WnW Prancer!!! Looks soooo wintry. :) I keep passing up on that HC.

  2. I love the layering! I've seen Sky several times in Walmart, and I've picked it up and put it down each time. It just doesn't call my name, I guess.

  3. Like all the versions! Pretty and nice holiday look.

  4. ShortAndSweet...Thanks! I think that's my fav. one too. :-)

    Zara...Thank you! So I'm not the only one?! Looks like and ShortAndSweet did the same thing. I thought I was in alone in not loving Sky.

    Biba....Thank you! :-)

    Thanks, Lucy! I didn't even think about it being a holiday look with both of the glitters, but now that you mention it, it does. :-)

  5. I have had the same problem with Hard Candy creme polishes.They all seem streaky and thick. I stay away from the cremes. It does look Christmasy with the layering!

  6. Really? I think this is the first HC creme I've used. It wasn't horrible, but not great either.

  7. I love the colorful glitter.. it's so Christmas-like :)
