Illamasqua "Speckled" Nail Polish Collection Dupe


Hello to everyone! I wasn't planning on doing a post today. However, I was shopping through the cosmetics section at Walmart and stumbled upon a new nail polish collection by Hard Candy.

I've never really jumped on the Hard Candy wagon even though I've heard mostly good reviews. Anyways, I have been loving the Illamasqua "Speckled" collection that Temptalia has been reviewing on her blog lately. The problem is, these nail polishes retail for $16. I don't know about you guys but I like nail polish, just not THAT well!

So when I saw this ENTIRE speckled-like collection from Hard Candy, I took advantage of it! The Hard Candy version retails for $4 which means I could buy 4 of these polishes for the price of 1 Illamasqua polish. Good deal huh? :)

Is it just me or is the Hard Candy collection identical? Honestly, Hard Candy even expanded on the colors to provide a wider variety and let me tell you, it was hard for me to choose which to get! There's four polishes total in the Illamasqua collection and nine in the hard candy.
I ended up getting Pixie Pink (which is actually a lavender) and Cotton Candy Pink (pastel pink)
I haven't tried these out yet because I JUST picked them up. I wanted to let you all know in case you've been lusting over the Illamasqua collection but don't want to break your bank!

I'll let you know an update on the formula and possibly a full review!




Hope you all enjoyed this post!
Until next time,

Love,
Shelbey
