Beetle

Today is hump day. I always have and still do think thats such an odd name for Wednesday. Why not just say Wednesday?

Today, I have Hard Candy Beetle for you! I think there was a lot of hype around this polish. After I purchased it, I don't really know why. I think it's really pretty polish. But not one that I'm crazy about.




Sorry for the blurriness in the first photo and I forgot to take a bottle shot. But the douchrome in this is very strong. On the nails it flashes from a brown, purple, green, olive to even red. This was 3 coats. The formula was really thin, thankfully no streaky. It could have been definitely worse. So I guess, at the least I'm thankful for that. I also picked up another bottle of this, maybe for a giveaway or something. Is Hard Candy sold outside of the US? I wonder.

While Beetle is a very pretty duo/multi chrome, I'm really not too impressed or in love with it. Why? I'm not sure. I just don't love it that much.

What did you think of Beetle? If you don't it, do you have access to HC?

  1. I have Beetle and I love it! It is one of my favorite HC nail polishes (I have a gorgeous rosy dusty pink opaque glitter of theirs that I also love). P.S., I tagged you on a Q&A thing on my blog!

    1. Nope. This was just 3 coats. Have you used yours yet?

  3. I don't have Beetle but I do have Orly Space Cadet (which is dupey to Beetle) and I kinda had the same reaction..."yea ok this is cool & pretty but not mindblowing"...I think I'm just more of a glitter/flakie girl.

  5. I don't think it's sold outside of the US. If it is I have NEVER seen it. I've never tried any HC but I have tried ORLY Space Cadet(like someone mentioned above) and thought it was ok.

  8. I love this polish. I bought it a month or so ago, before I knew there was a hype around it. I think it is fabulous, and I got mine to be completely opaque in two coats. Bummer that you don't like it. :( I think it looks great with black stamping over it. I haven't tried stamping with it...hmmm..I just might have to! <3
