Hard Candy - Peach Pop

I'm loving these new Hard Candy polishes. I'm so glad that the Walmart near me had some in stock! I grabbed almost all of the polishes from the Candy Sprinkles collection. There's just something about colorful micro glitter in creamy bases that I love!


This one is called Peach Pop, and it certainly reminds me of peaches! The creamy light orange color flecked with bits of red and silver glitter is perfect. It really reminds me of a nice ripe peach with red and orange tones. 


I have to admit I was a little hesitant to get this one at first. I'm actually not a huge fan of the color orange, but I'm still glad I bought it. It's light, a bit lighter than in the photos. In some light it's almost an orangey nude next to my skin! It's definitely peachy-tan and not super bright orange.


As for application, Peach Pop went on pretty smoothly. It's pretty packed with glitter, but the glitter didn't make it difficult to apply. The brush inside is also pretty wide, more like an OPI brush, so it was really easy to get nice coverage. I used two coats and it was completely opaque. I then topped it with a coat of Seche Vite and it was smooth!


It's such a fun spring and summer color! I'll definitely be using this polish again soon. I think the only thing I didn't really like was how some of the glitter ended up hanging off the edge of my nails. I didn't manipulate the glitter in any way, so it's sort of my fault. I just applied two coats like I would with a normal, non-glittery polish. I'll either have to make sure the glitter doesn't dry hanging off, or I'll lightly file the stray bits. 


Even with that, I'm really pleased with this polish. I was also happy that it was only $4.00 at my local Walmart! However, it may be $4.00, but the bottle is only 0.26 oz instead of the typical 0.5 oz. You get less polish, but at least buying a variety won't break the bank!

Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
