Some New Hard Candy Spam

I was at Walmart trying to hunt down the Libman Freedom Mop. I want this mop like I want nail polish. Usually I do not get excited over cleaning products but I am about this one. It worries me actually. I didn't find the mop (dammit!) but I did come home with a few of the new Hard Candy polishes. They are $5 a bottle and that is a little spendy considering they are smaller than the average bottle and the new colors aren't unique. If you have easy access to these they may curb your craving for certain colors. I don't think they are worth hunting down but they are fun.

Beetle is a dupe for Orly Space Cadet and MAC Mean & Green. It's a tad less sheer compared to the other two but that is the only minor difference. I do love this color though.







Zombie is a holo/glitter in a tinted purple base. Fun and reminds me of NYX Frizz Spots. I wore this over OPI Do You Lilac It. This is actually Hot Pants renamed to Zombie. I didn't see the real Zombie polish but you can see a swatch here at Lacquer Laine.







Mischief is a dupe for China Glaze Ick-A-Bod-Y with the murky green base with orange glitter. I was suprised at how nice this went on and it didn't eat topcoat.







Mushroom is a dark taupe creme much like a number of other dark taupe cremes. I needed three coats since the formula is a bit on the thin side. It is very shiny and it seems to lean more neutral on the taupe scale.

Thanks for the swatches!! I like Beetle best, even if it's not exactly fresh and never before seen.

And LMAO @ you hunting down a mop. I have to google this mop, because clearly, it is serious business.

All of these are so pretty. So far I only have mischief. Haven't found the others yet.

That mop will be mine! I need that mop in my life but I can't find it anywhere. Grrr!!

I went out and bought all four of the brand new Hard Candy polishes in one fell swoop. It wasn't until I got home later that I realized that Mushroom cost $8.00 instead of $5.00 like every other color in the collection!

I couldn't justify paying an OPI price for a neutral from Hard Candy. The girl that did my return couldn't understand why it would be more expensive, either.

Did anyone else have the same thing happen, or is it just Wally stores in my area?

$8?! What?! That is ridiculous. Mine were $5 and I cringe at that price.

Yeah! I went to two different Wal-Marts in my city, and they were both priced at $8. I pointed this out, and even indicated that every other color was $5.00, but they said nothing could be done.

I hit up a Wally up north of where I live, though, and found it with the five dollar price tag. But what do I find when I'm unwrapping it at the stop light outside? The cap is cracked! Almost all the way around, whaaaat. D: Booooo.

At the end of the day, though, I'm thankful for my little brother (so handy with super glue and duct tape!), and I'm really hoping that this one will look great on me and be worth all of the effort. :)

Just found Mushroom at $4 at my Walmart! All the other colors were $5... so i was wondering why that new shade was cheaper!
