When I first moved out to go to college I was seriously broke. Like, trying to live on thirty dollars a week broke. Getting food boxes from my mother-in-law's church broke. Broke, broke and p.s. BROKE.
The only luxury I really had was magazines, courtesy of my parents buying me gift subscriptions. I'm sure it will surprise you that the range of magazines was between Metal Maniacs, Marie Claire and Newsweek.
Yeah, not so much. ;) Anyhoo, this is relevant because back then Urban Decay and Hard Candy launched. I kept seeing the awesome polish colors and seriously amazing makeup swatches in the lady mag and I desperately wanted them. But there was no way I could afford department store makeup.
Go many years later and when I can finally afford these beauties and Hard Candy is kaput and Urban Decay does not make polish. Grr...
Imagine my excitement when it was announced that Hard Candy would be back. This time I could afford it! I could buy all of the nail colors and not have to give up eating for the week. I could buy two of each and not risk having my electricity turned off! Seriously, this was my thought process.
The best part? I fucking love this polish. It's a gorgeous color, applied beautifully and wore quite well.
So worth it.
