NPA Loves Candy Lacquer #1

Pin It
If you're a regular reader, you might have figured out that I'm a lover of Candy Lacquer glitters. Sandra makes so many different novelty glitter mixes. My favourites involve hearts and butterflies but there are stars, moons, flowers etc.

When my latest parcel arrived, I literally tore it open and started swatching!

Candy Lacquer Barbie Girl over China Glaze Grape Pop

 Barbie Girl is a seriously exciting glitter topper. Instead of the standard glitter in a clear base, Sandra loaded it up with pink-purple color shifting shimmer too. Then there are neon pink squares, butterflies and large hexes; pastel purple flowers, small and medium hexes and blue iridescent flakes. It packs a mighty punch to say the least! I applied one coat - with a bit of individual placement - over my grape creme base and finished it with two coats of Glitter Gloss for a smooth and shiny mani.

Candy Lacquer Candy Girl over Nicole by OPI Kim-pletely in Love

Candy Girl is a sweet, pastel glitter mix containing pink, green, purple and blue hexes with flowers, large squares, giant hexes and heart glitter. I actually put off placing an order for about a month because CG was sold out for a while and I couldn't live without it!!! I layered 1 coat over a very pale baby pink shimmer and placed a few pieces of glitter in the gaps too. This one is finished with 1 coat of Glitter Gloss and Seche Vite.

Candy Lacquer Princess Celestia over Cult Nails Mind Control

I have been drooling over Princess Celestia for MONTHS! Whenever I made an order it was either sold out, or I just couldn't afford any more bottles. Thankfully it's a permanent offering, so I snagged it this time. It's a white and iridescent glitter mix with gold holo stars, white hearts, diamonds, squares and hexes. Too much love!!!!!!! Here I've layered 1+ coats over Mind Control and smoothed it with Glitter Gloss and Seche Vite.

The one thing I wish I could change? I wish chunky glitters could dry smoother, but i doubt that's ever going to happen. Wider nails would help too! Glitter manufacturers PRETTY PLEASE make thinner, solvent resistant glitter?

You can get your own Candies from the big cartel store for US$8.50/15mL bottle and they offer international shipping.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway, it closes in 3 days!!!
