Hard Candy Black Tie Optional
I have been wanting a black and white matte glitter overlay since I learned they existed a few years ago.  This one is Hard Candy Black Tie Optional worn over Wet 'n Wild Megalast Tropicalia.  Lynderella Connect the Dots was the first polish of its kind (shown right, not my picture).  The polish was only sold online by an independent seller and was so popular that you couldn't buy it.  There was a frenzy trying to get this polish and people were whining and complaining about how websites worked and this and that wasn't fair in their quest for the polish.  The woman who made the polish mostly as a hobby got fed up and quit.  Fast forward to a few years later, and you can finally find a couple versions in brick and mortar stores.  There have been a lot of imitators, but no polish has come close to the original, which was truly perfect.  As you can see, black and white glitters look great over lots of polish colors, especially brights, pastels, and neons.
Hard Candy recently revamped their nail polish line.  The new line has lots of polishes that are inspired by independent, online brands (most sell on  One good example is Hard Candy's sprinkles selection (above, not my picture).  All their new polishes are worth a look.  If you plan to buy a glitter, take a good look at the bottle.  Some people have reported curling glitters (taco glitter).  Hard Candy is exclusive to Walmart.  The polishes are 4$ for a mini sized bottle.  The price per oz is on par with OPI or Essie.
