Nail Hoot's Candyland Collection

***Press Sample***

 

My brother's favorite game when he was a kid was Candyland.  I tried playing it.  Felt like this little girl because I just couldn't win.  

Yeah, I'm...uh...I'm more of a card game girl.  Gimme some Canasta!!

But you don't have to like the Candyland game to appreciate the gorgeous Candyland inspired collection by Nail Hoot!


This collection consists of five lovely polishes.  First up: Gramma Sparkle Berry





Gramma Sparkle Berry is a blue polish packed with purple and turquoise micro glitters, inspired by the character Gramma Nutt.

Next up: Ice Queen




Ice Queen is a light blue/purple polish with small pink glitters throughout, inspired by the character Queen Frostine.

Next is: Kandy Krunch




Kandy Krunch is a burnt copper orange with fiery micro glitters and large orange and brown glitters.  This polish is inspired by the character King Kandy.





Licorice Twist is a chocolate/mauve polish with flashes blue and various micro glitters, inspired by the character Lord Licorice.

And last but not least: My Green Plum




My Green Plum is a green polish with a purple/blue flash and packed with various micro glitters.  This polish is inspired by the character Plumpy.

Overall, I found this collection extremely easy to work with!  All the polishes applied very smoothly and were opaque in 2-3 coats (depends on how thick you apply each layer).  They all dried to a semi-satin finish, so I topped each with a layer of KBShimmer's Clearly On Top to really bring out the sparkles and shimmers in each.  All the polishes dried in under five minutes as well.  I give this collection two fabulously polished thumbs up! :D

You can find this collection and more polish at the Nail Hoot shop here.  You can also follow the brand's Facebook page, Facebook Fan Group, and Instagram for swatches on current and upcoming collections.

What do you think of this collection?  Are you/were you a Candyland fan?

Polishes sent to me by the maker for review purposes.  All experiences with the polish are my own and my opinions remain 100% honest.

  4. I have no idea what Candyland is! Maybe it has another name over here, or it just doesn't exist, no clue! Anyway, I love how you show us brands that I never saw before!

  19. really digging My Green Plum. My daughter loves candyland right now but seems to think that she can go up the slides. Doesnt understand that it's cheating which makes her brothers not want to play but she's so darn cute about it.
