Claire's Candy Shop - ABC Challenge "C"

Claire's Nail Polish
Here is my "C" polish for the Alphabet Challenge (if you would like to join, add your link to the links below).  I have never bought/tried a Claire's polish before, but I had to get it when I found out that it was a dupe to Deborah Lippmann's Candy Shop.  I had that on my wishlist for quite some time and then this emerged.  I already have a swatch of this, but I posted it when my blog was new and I only took pics of my thumb (click here to see LOL).  It's fun looking back at old posts!
I layered this over Zoya Shelby to have a more opaque base.  I love the look of this and am going to enjoy looking at my nails today while at work.  I'm not, however, going to enjoy taking this off...argh, glitter:(  I will be doing the foil method for sure!

  1. This looks really good with the layered base. When I tried it, it looked kind of dull! I'm definitely taking note for future uses!

  2. I love this layered over a pink creme! It makes the color stand out so much and eliminates multiple coats for opacity :)

    1. LOL, I laugh at my first photos. I was scared to show all of my fingers! They were still healing from picking my cuticles for so many years. Now that was a hard to habit to stop. My daughter Shelby told me that my nails look like birthday cakes this a.m.:)

    1. I've been doing that with some of my early ones. Plus, I swatched so many of my favorites in the beginning and want to wear them again...so if I can get a better picture, I'll add it to my Friday Favorite with a Flair or to a challenge like this:)

  9. Looks great on you! I have this one and layered it but didn't like the combo I chose. I might have to try a different base. I hear ya with removing glitter. One think that I love it the Target Dip It tub. It has a little scrubber type thing in there and while you can only do one finger at a time, it is amazing for glitters. I find I wear glitter polishes much more now that I discovered this. Here is a link to it...it's only like $2 I think. http://www.target.com/p/up-up-maximum-strength-acetone-nail-polish-remover-dip-it-9-oz/-/A-13317437

    1. Ya know, my friend at work always uses that tub from Target but I never thought of using it for glitter. Good idea! :)

    1. That's why I usually just do an accent nail, then it's not as time consuming.
