Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear by Sally Hansen in Cotton Candy is definately not the color for my skin tone. that being said it is a very pretty polish. For this swatch I used two coats of the polish. You can't really tell that I am wear any nail polish at all hence why it is all wrong for me. I recommend that people with darker skintones weat this polish and I also reommend using at least three coats.
