POLISH SWATCH: Hard Candy "Sky"

Here are some quick swatches of Hard Candy "Sky". I am a pretty avid collector of Hard Candy polishes. I liked this one because it was the lightest blue there could be and it had a subtle aqua shimmer. 

However, after wearing it, I'd say it's probably not a polish I would ever buy again. The formula is BAD. It's streaky. You need at least 3 coats for an even application. Worst of all, that subtle shimmer I liked in the bottle was barely in site on the nail. Darn. 

Oh well....that's the beauty of polish, you don't like it, you can change it. So here's 3 coats of this polish with base and topcoat. 

You can see the shimmer a bit in this photo. 

So what do you think of this polish? Do you have it? I think if the formula was a little better, it would have been a perfect polish. 


  1. Actually in the close up picture the aqua shimmer can be seen nicely, but yes, it's very shy...
    I have this one and I am not really using it cause of the sheerness and formula. I used it once or twice as base for nail art cause - like you, I really liked the very very light color that is still blue and not white
    In any case, in these pics it looks real good on you

    1. Thanks Jin! I do have to admit it didn't photograph all that badly, but in person, it's very dull and patchy. :(

  2. This is what Sally Hansen's "Sea" (Smooth and Perfect line) should have looked like but it was too darn sheer. Anywho, cute color.

  3. Really looove light blues, but their application really ticks me off... Gorgeous color <3

  4. Awww...this is so cute! Love the color for it looks light and classy. This is perfect for everyday wear.
