Hard Candy Holiday Polishes

Today I am going to be showing you the holiday mini nail polishes from Hard Candy found at Wal-Mart. They released a 5 piece set and 8 individual polishes. And here they all are for your viewing pleasure.

side note: I had to go to a few different Wal-Marts to find them all.

Here are all 8 of the individual polishes:
and here are the 5 from the set, without the box... I threw it out before I took a picture :(... sorry.

Since these are such small bottles I decided to swatch them on a nail wheel (or whatever you call them lol) so I numbered the bottle and swatches to correspond with each other since they do not have any names or anything. All swatches are 1 coat.

#1: A basic silver with micro glitter, nothing totally special but it's still pretty.
#2: This one is kind of a redish pinkish color. It has a shimmer in it and is really pretty in person.
#3: I guess this could be considered more of a tangerine then an orange. This one also has shimmer
#4: Your run of the mill black w/silver glitter. This is also very similer to their "Mischief" from the 2010 holloween collection I was able to find last month at Wal-mart in clearance.

sorry about the hair lol
 #5: In the bottle this looked similar to #1, but on the nail it is totally different. #1 was pack with micro silver glitter, where #5 has very sparse small round silver glitter and smallish hex silver glitter.
#6: It's hard to see but this one has a faint yellow base and has gold micro glitter (dupe of #11)
#7: I was looking forward to this one the most since I love green. It's not bad, the green base is very pretty and I really like the green glitter that is a little bit dark color then the base. (dupe of #12)
#8: This is a dupe of #3
#9: This is a lovely purple and I love glitter so this is a win :) I thought that this would be a dupe of #10, so I put them next to each other on the color wheel, but I was wrong and very surprised.

sorry about the red speck on #12 I had an accident with another polish so please ignore that :) Thanks!!
#10: This is one of my surprise favorites for this collection. It has a very pretty purple-to-blue color shift in it that I was not expecting.
#11: dupe of #6
#12: dupe of #7
#13: This is a nice bright blue with shimmer in it that makes me think of a nice clean ocean or some crystal clean water source lol

 Most of these polishes are very pretty and totally worth $1 each. There are a couple that aren't anything special, to me anyways. Everyone likes different things :) If you want to get them all I do want to remind you that 3 of the polishes in the 5-piece set are dupes for 3 or the individual polishes. The only difference in these polishes are the size of the bottles, the individual ones ar 4ml and the set are 3ml. I have them shown here:

So if you are wanted to get each color I would suggest getting the set and the black, blue, silver, red/pink, and the purple in the individual ones.
