Hard Candy Beetle

A few months ago, I was at Walmart with the family. I wandered over to the cosmetics department and spied a shimmery, duochromy Hard Candy polish. It was the only one on the shelf and it had been obviously opened. (Hard Candy comes with a little ring shrink-wrapped to the cap) I don't like buying things that are opened and it was the last one on the shelf, so I passed it by.

A month or so later, we were back at Walmart looking for school uniforms for the Charlie-monster. On our way to the check-out counter, I remembered the polish that got away. I went over to see if it had been restocked...and of course it hadn't. That same sad pre-opened bottle was still sitting right where I left it. I decided I couldn't leave it alone. It had to be MINE.

Colors Used:
Hard Candy in Beetle
Sally Hansen black crackle coat

So, a while after this manicure was dead and gone, I found out this polish is a pretty good dupe for Orly's Space Cadet. Which is kinda cool, I guess. Hard Candy is $5.00 at Walmart, and Orly isn't the most widely available polish brand.

And since seeing Amanda's sponged-on CG polish...I kinda want to revisit this color. I bet it would look awesome applied with a sponge.


  1. I'm so confused!! ....isn't Beetle supposed to be a dupe of Orly Space Cadet? This looks soooooo pink.

  2. it does look pretty pink here. But the lighting is kinda weird in my house. This pic shows it really well.
