Focus On Blue: Hard Candy Sky

Hard Candy Sky is a sister to the much loved Chanel Riva - it's not a dupe, but it's darned close! Have a look at Kelly of Vampy Varnish's comparison post. I picked this up ages ago and have never done a swatch of it for the blog, but I did try it out. I've worn this probably three times and I have a hard time getting it even and not patchy! This time, I did three thin coats. It's probably my best application yet!
Sky is a pale baby blue creme with a subtle darker blue shimmer running through it. As a matter of fact, it's so subtle, you cannot see it in my photos. You can see a tiny bit of it in the bottle, but not on my nails.
Application is tough, but this color is gorgeous. I've always had a soft spot for baby blues, so this one will stay in my stash and I'll just be patient with it.
Plus, it makes a great layering base! I recently picked up a couple of Kleancolors (not the much touted "holos"!) and I decided to try out Sparkle Emerald over this. WIN. This is so completely gorgeous and glowing. I tried my best to capture how much Sparkle Emerald glows in photos, my best shots were a tad blurry.

Yeah, it's probably best to click on those last two photos to get a true look at how pretty Sparkle Emerald is! Not aptly named, though. This is not reminiscent of emerald in any shape or form.

  1. I've seen this at Wal Mart and have always wante to pick it up but could never bring myself to because i wasn't so sure about it. I'm with you on loving pale blues but I'm not a patient person either! Still, very pretty!
