Hard Candy Crystal Confetti ♥ Swatches and Review

Hard Candy Crystal Confetti
Hard Candy recently released five new polish lines that are available exclusively at Walmart and retail for $3.97 each!  Each line includes 9 polishes for a total of 45 new polishes!
If you missed my first two posts, I have already review the Candy Sprinkles and Glitterazi lines, you can see them here and here.
The next line I have to show you is called Crystal Confetti.  It consists of nine glitter polishes that have a variety of glitter shapes and base colors.  I received four to review:  Hip Hip Hooray, Fireworks, Celebrate Sequins and Fun N’ Festive.  The polishes I did not receive were Birthday Bash, Party Central, Black Tie Optional, Jubilee and Masquerade.
Hard Candy Hip Hip Hooray over Lil LilacHard Candy Fireworks over Bitty Blue
Hip Hip Hooray has a lilac tinted base and it is filled with medium sized black and silver hex glitter, small blue and pink hex glitter, and purple micro glitter.  Here I have layered one coat of Hip Hip Hooray over three coats of Lil Lilac.  I love the combination of pink, purple and blue with the silver and black!
Fireworks has a pink tined based and it is filled with medium sized red hex glitter, small blue hex glitter, red micro glitter and red “eyelash” glitter.  The “eyelash” glitter is a bendy bar glitter that does not lay completely flat on the nail.  Here I layered one coat of Fireworks over three coats of Bitty Blue
Hard Candy Celebrate Sequins over Pure Ice Kiss Me HereHard Candy Fun N Festive
Celebrate Sequins has a clear base and it is filled with medium silver holographic hex glitter, small square silver holographic glitter, and silver holographic micro glitter.  Basically it’s a disco ball for your nails!  Here I have layered it over two coats my of Pure Ice Kiss Me Here, which is another polish that is available at Walmart!  I love the combination of the different shapes of holographic glitter, especially layered over a smooth crème polish!
Fun N’ Festive has a murky green base and it is filled with large gold hex glitter, medium black hex glitter, small orange hex glitter and green micro glitter.  Here I wore three coats of this polish on its own.  I thought this would be my favorite, but I ended up not liking it at all!  It looks like a lumpy green swamp on my nails.

The Crystal Confetti polishes are available now in stores and “soon” on Walmart’s website (currently listed as Out Of Stock).
Have you picked up any polishes from the Crystal Confetti line?  What do you think about the “eyelash” glitter?
