LA Colors - Candy Sprinkles!

LA Colors candy sprinkles
Hi y'all! Something SUPER exciting today! I finally finally FINALLY got this polish!! This is something I've been looking for, for well over a year now. I started seeing them pop up around christmas time 2013. And have been looking ever since. I'd pretty much given up hope that I would ever find my own bottle. Well, I was out shopping before Christmas, went to sallys for a few things and thought 'i'll run next door to family dollar cause I'm low on top coat..' Welp! Got in there and they apparently don't sell my top coat there anymore :( BUT, as I was ready to leave, defeated that I didn't get what I needed, I see a shelf of gift box sets, and individual polishes. Once I spotted the LA Colors display? I forget ALL ABOUT that top coat cause OMG a WHOLE SHELF full of Candy Sprinkles, that super hard to find color that I thought I'd NEVER get. But there it was! So of course I grabbed it up. (I should have took the whole shelf full, I know) and I grabbed one other one called 'Blue Icicle' which is basically the same thing.. but in blue. Such pretty colors! And while I don't do swatches here a lot of colors I bought myself, well.. I needed posts for the blog and as soon as I got home I just HAD to paint my nails with this, so here we are! 

For a short little review - I was ALMOST disappointed with how this looked in the bottle compared to pictures I'd seen. And even more so when I painted on the first coat; First coat was so sheer and had so little glitter I thought I was going to need 5+ of them to get full opaqueness. Then I did the second coat. And I FELL IN LOVE. It looked even better in person than in pictures! So so much better! Second coat cause total opaqueness and there was SO MUCH GLITTER. Much more glitter than I excited. I love it! Soo, this is two coats shown in the picture with one coat of Sally Hansen Instadri top coat. (The one in the red bottle)

Hope you all enjoyed this! Let me know what you thought in the comments below! 


  1. I completely understand you. I was the same way when I picked mine up last year. I found it in a dusty corner of an old run down pharmacy in a small village in England.

  2. What a pretty and girly crelly color on you.

    haha Right!? Silly color just doesn't want to be found. I'm thinking it was part of a 'holiday' type collection this year and thats why I found it though since all the other colors on the shelf had wintery and holiday-ish themed names.

  6. Mine was stuck in between a bunch of dull looking emeralds and a dull looking grey-blue thing.
    It did not want to be found, that's for sure.
