NOTD: Hard Candy Sweet Tooth

Hard Candy Sweet Tooth

After I wore nails inc. Sweets Way last week I remembered that there was a possible dupe made by Hard Candy in their Candy Sprinkles line. It was amazingly close!

However, the price is a bit different. Hard Candy retails exclusively at Walmart for $3.97 for .26 ounces. Nails inc. can be purchased from Sephora for $9.50 for .33 ounces.

I used 2 coats of Nails Inc. while I needed 3 coats of Hard Candy to get the same look.

Another difference I noted was that the Hard Candy version dried smoother- I only needed a topcoat of NYC Grand Central Station to smooth it out. With the Nails Inc. version I added a coat of Gelous before my topcoat.

One more thing: these tend to be pretty chip-tastic on me and I had quite a few chips on the second day. Still love the effect- the layered glitter sandwich look you get by doing multiple coats is so cool.

Pin It!
