Fresh Coat: Hard Candy Just Nails in Sky...

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

When I saw Hard Candy Just Nails in Sky in Wal-Mart, I was instantly mentally transported back to the day I discovered Sephora in SouthPark Mall in 1996 in Charlotte. I remember walking in there and instantly feeling like I found a!

I totally remember Hard Candy and Sky polish ( just like I remember buying Tony& Tina Body Glitter and Shower Gels, it was the 90s!! Woo-hoo!). It was always sold out, but I had a bottle that I barely used. Years later, I saw a old crusty bottle of it in a TJ Maxx but didnt buy it.

Check out the history behind Sky according to Hard Candy's Wikipedia page:

Hard Candy is an American cosmetics company, founded in 1995 by Iranian American sisters, Dineh and Pooneh Mohajer and Benjamin Einstein.
The company's first product was nail polish that Dineh mixed herself - a shade of baby blue named "Sky" to match her sandals. In that same year, actress Alicia Silverstone appeared on Late Night with David Letterman and, when asked about her pastel blue fingernails, replied, "It's 'Sky' by Hard Candy," causing an overnight explosion for the brand.[citation needed] A mere 18 months later the brand was quoted as generating $10 million a year in a Forbes ad featuring Dineh.

Thank God its back and it all places, Wal-Mart. I bought two bottles, well I bought the ONLY two bottles there.
 Pretty.!!! Great Formula...this is three coats plus a coat of Seche Vite.

I thought I had something close to color in it in L'Oreal High Tide but High Tide is a grey base and a silver micro shimmer whereas Sky is lighter with a iridescent shimmer.

Have you picked up Sky?

Lash Experiment: 16 weeks featuring TriLash......2 week Update....

Hey Everyone!

The beauty junkie in me has been dying to try a lash growth product but the ex-librarian assistant in me didnt wanna do the research to find out which one works the best. Combine that with my broke single mother-ness and you got no lash growth product yet. However, the Universe is loving me every once in a while and I have the chance to try TriLash for review!!

According the TriLash website:

TriLash is not a mascara or a lengthening effect makeup. TriLash is a revolutionary cosmeceutical scientific breakthrough that helps your body naturally create your very own longer thicker lashes with the advanced patent pending peptide active ingredients. Clinical tests and more importantly user experience has confirmed that TriLash’s key active ingredients work to deliver safe and drug-free results easily and effectively within as little as 2 weeks.

I will do my TriLash experiment like I did my Clinique Even Better Clinical Review and update the change in my lashes every 2 weeks for 16 weeks ( Since each lash cell matures individually, continued use of TriLash for up to 16 weeks is advised for best results.).

I will also not  give a full review of the product til the 16 weeks is up.:)

Lets get started!!

This photo of my lashes was taken the day that I started applying the serum. I have okay length lashes but they are not thick and I have some sparse places. I will take the picture after I wash my face at night so all the photos for this experiment will have mascara free, natural lashes.


I see a slight change in length in some places. I'm not applying it to the lower lash line since I dont wear mascara on my lower lashes. Too much smudging for me:(

I think I'll take the growth experiment pictures like this one above....It shows the difference better...

See you in TWO more weeks for the FOUR weeks update!!

I received a free product (or products) for review purposes. I did not receive any form of compensation from the company. All opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway. My reviews are my personal and honest opinions
