In case you missed yesterday's post, all this week, myself and several other bloggers will be posting pink manis in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My pink mani for today is Claire's Candy Shop, a bubblegum pink jelly base filled with rainbow hex glitter. This is a pretty blatant knock-off of Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop (I mean, really, Claire's didn't even come up with a different name!), which I've had a lemming for forever, yet somehow still haven't bought.
I've never tried a Claire's polish before so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of quality. (I had sooo much Claire's jewelry back in middle school and the metal bits always turned green and nasty after a little while.) But this actually applied quite nicely. I used three coats here.
Based on pictures I've seen, Claire's version of Candy Shop has a darker pink base than the original. I still have a lemming for DL's version (I need to just buy the damn thing already) but this polish is a decent way to get the look for less. I got my bottle about a year ago, so unfortunately I have no idea if Claire's still makes it anymore though! If you've spotted it recently, I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
