Claire's Candy Shop!

So this is decidedly more me!  I'm still rocking the Essie/Nubar combo(5 days strong, what is this magic??) but I wanted to show you a swatch I did before I put that on.

So I finally found Candy Shop at Claires, and I was SO psyched to try it and let me say, it does not disappoint!  I'm sure the Lippmann one is great, but to be frank, I like a brighter pink.  This colour is really beautiful, a really nice pink shade, and the variety of glitter is great.  Even with all the glitter, it applied very easily and I had to do very little placing of glitter.  It distributed evenly and levelled quite nicely, though it's not smooth and needs an extra layer of top coat if smoothness is a priority for you.

This is 2.5 coats(I wouldn't say it's a FULL third coat because for the third I just touched on a little extra glitter on a few spots that needed it).  Great coverage too.


As you can see, while it's levelled nicely, it's not very smooth.  
This is with one coat of Essie Good To Go.


What do you think of Candy Shop?  
Is it on your wish list?

  5. I love this! But I will most likely end up getting the Deborah Lippmann one instead because I like her bottle better (I know, I sound ridiculous)
