Retro Sunday Squared With Scholarly Nail - Vintage Hard Candy - Cloud & Cosmic

Hello there, ladies! 

Jacqui and I had to take a short hiatis due to my moving and getting my life together again, but we're back now! Today we chose to do vintage Hard Candy polishes. Jacqui has the most AMAZING HC collection, so I know shes going to blow you all and myself away! The two I have to share today are actually both gifts from her! ;) They're both minis, so sorry in advance if the posture holding the bottles is the little awkward. :p 

First up I have Cloud. OMG I was blown away by this one! Cloud is a sky blue metallic polish with flecks that shift from silver/white to gold. The name of this polish really holds true to it's airy look! So light and delicate. I was really happy with this formula, this is two coats. 





Next up I have Cosmic. To be honest, when I think of a polish with the name Cosmic I think of a deep blue or black and holo glitter. What we have here is a slick light mauve/pink polish with micro-fine silver glitter. I love this color so much, but I think I'd love it more on me if I had a tan. I have total lobster hands with my fair skin! Once again, great formula. Two coats.

  1. OMG I absolutely LOVE both of these on you! Cloud is amazing, I think I may have to swatch it for myself soon. I love how it's almost a foil. And ughhh Cosmic is so awesome!! I feel like this is one of those office-friendly colors and I can definitely see myself being able to even wear it to court!! Great swatches!!
