Layering: Sweet Candy Sparkles

If the name of this alone doesn't make you think Malibu Stacy... I can't help you! (Sorry, not sorry.) The forces of pink, sparkle, and shimmer joined together for the common glittery good...

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats Wet n Wild Candy-licious
1 Coat NYC Sweet Candy
2 Coats SinfulColors Queen of Beauty (accent)
3 Coats Nicole by OPI Inner Sparkle (accent)
1 Coat Seche Vite

With Mother's Day and Peanut serving as inspiration, I had pink on the brain. So, while marinating in a hot bath, I had a staring contest with some of the glitter polishes I've yet to swatch. Lo and behold, Sweet Candy and Inner Sparkle practically begged to be included in this layering.

Candy-licious is a warm bubblegum pink from Wet n Wild's core collection of Megalast polishes. I picked it up when the line first came out. (It was a while ago...) I think I swatched skittles of it then, but I don't recall if I've ever worn it by itself. I layered one coat of Sweet Candy by NYC over 3 coats of Candy-licious for a soft, shimmery, updated take on bubblegum pink. (And in other news, I'm really glad I bought 2 bottles of Sweet Candy, because WOW! I'm in looooove!!!)

For my accent nails, (always left ring, right pointer and pinky...) I painted on 2 coats of Queen of Beauty to get some glittery coverage going, then topped it with 3 coats of OPI Inner Sparkle. The silver of Queen of Beauty plays nicely with Inner Sparkle, cooling down the warmth of the pink and purple glitter. This is a great layering for Mother's Day, but I would also rock this on my Birthday, Valentine's Day, or any random day, really! :)

What do you think of Sweet Candy Sparkles?
