Hard Candy: Beetle *pic heavy

Today I have a really fun mani for you. I'm usually not a fan of duochromes. I don't know why. Maybe my first one was just a dud - but no more. I am in LOVE with duochromes. I went to visit my mother and now that she's caught word of my polish addiction (I'm good at keeping secrets, but why would I do that to myself?!) she bought me this:

It took me three coats to get full coverage. The formula is really nice and effortless. When you put this color on it looks more goldish-green, which initially I was not a fan of but after awhile it grew on me and I think it looks really fun. In the light it turns purple and in different lighting it turns an even brighter gold-green. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. You'll definitely want to enlarge these photos!

I tried to capture the purple in this but only managed to take one good purple photo w/flash. The rest I took under a flap and tilted my nail so you could see the different colors in the polish.

Below you can kind of see the green-gold-purple shimmer thing happening.

Final verdict: This is a really awesome nail polish and super affordable at 3.99-4.99 I've never tried any other hard candy polishes but if they're anything like this one I hope they come out with more colors because I am very pleased with the end result.

Did I mention I really need a new macro lens? I can't use flash with it because it creates a weird ring. Ugh.

Do you have any duochrome polishes? What's your favorite? What about hard candy?

If you layer it over black it looks even better! A lot of douchromes are like that. :)
