Drugstore Buy of the Week - Hard Candy Cream Nail Color

Hard Candy has been know for their nail polishes with cool and unique special finishes that involve Chrome, Confetti, Micro-Glitter, even "Sprinkle" effects.

Now, they've come out with a new line of nail polishes, Hard Candy Cream Nail Color  that is just a simple creme finish - but they're anything but boring.

This new formulation is amazing for the price ($4!) - not only are they rich, beautiful colors but no base or top coat is needed. 

They also have a super shiny finish - the next best thing to a salon gel manicure!

There are 15 creme shades in all, and among them some pretty blue, red and purple shades perfect for Fall and into the holiday season as well. 

They can also be layered with the other Hard Candy special effect polishes if you really want to create a unique manicure or do some nail art.

Three of my personal favorites were: Beach Babe, a coral based pink (pictured, top); Girls Night Out and Schoolhouse Rock, a unique "greige"/violet, (pictured, left) shade that's a nice new twist on the pale pink manicure.  The formula was creamy, non-streaky and the brush was the perfect length and width to get to easily get to all sides of my nails.  With two coats I got the exact shade in the bottle with tons of shine.  With no additional top coat, I got about 4 days chip free, but with an added top coat added after the 2nd day, I got about 6 days before noticing any major chipping on the tips.

By the way, if you looking for a darker, trendy shade and don't want to spend a ton of money, Blue Lagoon is also a STUNNING bright cobalt blue that looks like it's a lot more expensive that it is :).  - RLB
