Ummmm yes! That's all I can really say about this gorgeous, glowing blue creme polish! I know Hard Candy has done creme polishes before, but this is the first time they've featured them since changing their bottle design. That being said, if Blue Lagoon is any indication of Hard Candy's Fall 2014 creme polishes... I'm going to HAVE to buy them all!

The pigmentation in this polish is absolutely insane! I definitely could've gotten away with 2 coats, but 3 has really become my standard. And I only got around to wrapping my tips prior to coat 3... :) Oddly enough, this polish is brighter once it's completely dry then when you first paint it on. I was a little skeptical when finishing the 3rd coat, because my nails didn't exactly match the bottle. After a coat of clear and a coat of Seche, I noticed Blue Lagoon brighten up a little. This morning when I woke up, my nails were a full-on match to the bottle.

The brush in Blue Lagoon is your standard size brush, just like all the other Hard Candy polishes. Nothing wrong with that! One thing I did notice, because of the bottle size and subsequent longer wand for the brush, polish can drip down the wand at inopportune moments. It's more of an annoyance than a problem, really, and I've noticed it with other similarly shaped bottles. Nothing that a quick swirl of the wand can't fix!

I'm seriously loving this color right now. Cobalt blue came back out of nowhere this spring, and I'm honestly glad it did! I know that this isn't a unique color, by any means, but I do think that it's one of the most afforable cobalt polishes out there right now. Just $4 a bottle! 

Overall, I'm really pleased with Blue Lagoon. Based on my experience, I would definitely pick up more of the new cremes from Hard Candy. I'm adding Schoolhouse Rocks, Record Breaker, Sweet Retreat, and Island Fever to the official wishlist!

Have you picked up any of the new Hard Candy creme polishes?!?

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate.

One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 5 Coats daniPro Forever Girl* 1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover* 1 Coat Seche Vite I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3 In case you missed my review of First Kiss , daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health. Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter sha

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon. That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY . This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's? Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones.
