Hard Candy Sky
Hard Candy is an American drug store brand found at Wal-Mart, and they have a lot of lovely colors. This brand also has a lot of affordable dupes of “it-colors” like Beetle (dupe for Orly Space Cadet and MAC Mean & Green), and Sky is also a dupe for Chanel’s Côte D’Azur hit polish Riva.
I have to admit, I didn’t fall for neither Riva nor Sky at first sight, but after seeing beautiful swatches on blogs and the MUA Nail Board, I realised that this definitely was a must-have! It looks like a nice baby blue creme most of the time, but when the right light hits it, you can see the lovely blue “hidden” shimmer that gives it that little extra.
The formula is surprisingly nice for a pastel, it’s a little bit on the thick side, but it never feels like I’m painting with glue. It does have some pastel problems like streaking and unevenness, but it levels out very well and is smooth, even and opaque in 3 coats.
Thanks for reading!
