Nailed It!: Candied

Nailed It!, PR, Regular release

*Disclosure: PR samples- I received these polishes free of charge in exchange for photography.*

Release: 7 June 2020

5 polishes

Little heads-up: these five candy-inspired, flakie-packed shades looked so good matte I had to include some photos of them that way as well! So I have my normal glossy top coat photos as well as two extra (a full hand and a macro) of them with matte top coat as well.

Konpeitō

Konpeito is the silver holographic of the group. It features a holographic base with shimmer and iridescent flakes in green, pink, and purple. It throws a soft holo flame in direct light.

3 coats + glossy top coat

Feelin’ Berry Blue

Feelin’ Berry Blue features a rich blue base packed with iridescent flakes, shimmer and some scattered holo. Two coats was really close to being opaque. I also found this formula to be a little on the thicker side.

Livin’ On A Pear

As a New Jerseyan, I can’t help but sing the name of this one every time I read it! Livin’ On A Pear features a bright green base packed with gold/green iridescent flakes and matching shifting shimmer. I love how the flakies work in this base color so, so much. The formula was also a bit thicker than usual.

Gumbelievable

swatch nailed it! gumbelievable 2

Gumbelievable features a coral-ish pink jelly filled with iridescent gold flakes and some holo microflake. These iridescent flakes are absolutely amazing and I wish this collection featured more of them on their own like this! This is my favorite polish of the collection finish-wise, solely because of these gold flakes, but unfortunately I don’t love how the base color looks on my skin tone. This base color will be a chameleon on different skin tones, It is a true pink, but in some lights it can lean more coral or even a bit salmon. Definitely one to check out on different swatchers!

2 coats + top coat

You Rock!

And a rich purple to round out the collection! You Rock! features a rich purple base filled with iridescent flakes in gold, pink, and green and some scattered holo microflake. Don’t purple flakie shades feel so comfortable to wear? I love how the flakes shift against this base color.

2 coats + top coat

Isn’t this collection just stunning? I had to showcase how they looked matte as well…those flakies pop so well with a matte top coat. Such a cute and fun collection! I’m so hoping to see more shades like Gumbelievable with just those iridescent gold flakes in a jelly base.
