Hard Candy Fun N’ Festive Nail Polish Review, Swatches, Photos




Hard Candy Fun n’ Festive

When Hard Candy launched 45 new shades of nail polish I went to my local Walmart to hunt down my favorites. Good thing I saw the display early, because it no longer resembles the photos in my post showing you all 45 shades. The display is sold out of many colors, and typical of Walmart a lot of the shades have been ‘tested’ on the display. I hate that so much!

Fun n’ Festive comes from the Crystal Confetti collection. The base is a blackened green jelly. It may be black but influenced by the green glitter. I do believe it is a blackened green. It has small hexagonal green glitter, medium sized hexagonal copper glitter, and large red and gold hexagonal glitter.

The formula for this is thick and a bit goopy/stringy. The small and medium glitter applies well, but you do need to tap the large glitter on to evenly disperse it across the nail. It looks sheer on the first coat, but looked great on the second coat. I did my swatches with 2 coats.

This dries really fast. It has a semi matte finish, so you do need a shiny top coat to finish this off. It tends to soak up the top coat, so you will need more than one coat to smooth out the texture left by all of the glitter.

Despite the formula of this polish I do like it. It does have a fun n’ festive feel to it. The color scheme actually makes me think of Christmas, like a blackened Christmas.

Hard Candy Fun n’ Festive retails for $4 and can be purchased exclusively at Walmart.

    Such lovely macro shots of the polish! I really like it in the bottle, looks much darker on your nails I guess as you get more even application of the glitter pieces and less of the little green flakes.

      Thanks, yes it gets darker. This could work as a glitter top coat over another color, possibly a green to bring out the green tones more.
