Hard Candy Groove

Today's manicure is Hard Candy Groove. My mother-in-law looked at this bottle twice and said "it looks like different colors...I didn't know nail polish could do that." Yup, I'm spreading the nail polish gospel. Nail polish can do just about anything, aesthetically anyways.

Hard Candy Groove is a trichrome polish that flashes purple, bronze, and (to a lesser extent) green. It looks awesome in the bottle and doesn't disappoint on the nail.
Indoors it shows purple with green around the edges. The only downside, this polish is sheer. I swatched it first, and upon discovering how many coats it would take to achieve opacity, I decided to layer it over black. Layering over black, white, or a tonally compatible
This mani is one coat Nubar Nu Nails, one coat Illamasqua Boosh (black creme), two coats HC Groove, and one coat Nubar Diamont.


  1. That is a pretty shade. Reminds me of Nubat's Iris Dust.

  2. i'm really sad about Hard Candy. the quality of their products has gone to shit. =(
