Hard Candy Walmart Halloween LE
I happened to run into the three new Hard Candy Walmart Halloween bottles - Wicked, Zombie, and Mischief, when I spotted a Walmart off the freeway in SGV and made a quick detour. These polishes are a little thick and goopy, but didn't really give too many application problems and they have pretty good coverage. All of these swatches are three coats.
Mischief is a pretty generic shade, I have more than five black loaded with silver glitter, so I picked the ones with denser glitter for comparison.
Wicked is a bright orange glitter loaded into a greenish sheer black base. It's pretty similar to China Glaze Ick-A-Bod-Y from their current halloween collection (Awakening 2010) but the glitter is a little brighter and more dense.
Zombie had two dupes right there at Walmart. Pure Ice Cheatin and Nicole by OPI Gone Wishin. I couldn't bring myself to buy three identical bottles, but i did get the cheaper Cheatin to do a comparison. Cheatin is pretty much the same, but much less dense. It would take several extra coats to build to the same opacity as the Hard Candy.
