NOTD: Hard Candy pixie pink 659

Posted on: June 11, 2013

Hard Candy 659 pixie pink is a lovely milky lilac base glitter with small all round glitter in copper (rose gold), white/silver and dark green. The formula was fine, I had no issues with having to dig for glitter or to “place” glitter. These pics are 2 coats. I used my usual Nail Envy (don’t leave home without it), a coat of Nfu-Oh base coat and I am impressed with the coverage of this polish. It retails at Walmart for $4.99 for a .26 oz bottle. Again, smaller bottle, normal brush, I like it. I believe it is exclusive to Walmart I know you will let me know if I’m wrong about that — Lori! So of course I always take a star away for that purpose because as we all know I don’t care for Walmart, especially the one in my town, the whole snake story and all.


Pixie Pink reminded me of It’s a Trap-eze! from the China Glaze Worlds Away collection from this spring. But you can see they are completely different. The China Glaze IAT is in a clear milky base with multi colored, multi sized glitters. I do like the opacity factor of the Hard Candy pixie pink being opaque in 2 coats. A bit of nail line shows, but not bad. You know how I am about the VNL, but this one doesn’t bother me so much. And the CG It’s a Trap-eze! Is different enough to justify owning both. I have made it no secret on this blog, that I do not care for glitter polish, but I must say I really like this Hard Candy pixie pink 659. Shocker!
I think it is safe to say glitters are growing on me. I give pixie pink 4/5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟. I am taking away a star because of the Walmart factor only.

I bought Betty a new “necklace” it is not a collar. It is pink with a silver dog bone shaped charm surrounded by pink crystals and of course her name and my phone number are engraved on the other side. I felt so bad leaving her for the week end but I think she likes her new “necklace”!

💅As always, thanks for stopping by.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
