Hard Candy Walmart The End and Break Up

Today's manicure is Hard Candy Walmart Break Up over Hard Candy Walmart The End.
The End is a simple black creme. Break Up consists of microglitter and large hexagonal chunky glitter that flashes orange, yellow, and green depending on the lighting in a clear base. Since The End is not unique or interesting in and of itself and Break Up is glitter is a transparent base, I thought these colors would make good a good layering combination.
Disclaimer: I think that Break Up is beautiful, but unlike Hot Pants, the glitter is so chunky it does not lie flush to the nail. It doesn't look horribly chunky to the naked eye, but even with top coat the nail surface still feels bumpy and uneven.
We'll see how difficult removal will be.
In case you were wondering, The End is a good black creme. It's easy to apply and opaque in two coats, but a comparable polish can be found cheaper in the drugstore.
This mani is one coat SpaRitual resurface base coat, two coats of The End, two coats of Break Up, and one coat of SpaRitual tout de suite top coat.


  1. Love glitters to layer with and this looks like a fun one to play with. Thanks for letting us know how lumpy it is!
