NOTD - Wild and Crazy Hard Ball

During a recent trip to my hometown I picked up a few US import polishes from a local shop there that does Sinful, Wild and Crazy, NYX and other exciting things. Hard Ball is an unusual duochrome with a metallic sheen. It took about 4 coats to go on opaque, so would probably be better on a grey or sky blue base.

The colour is really distinctive. The base colour is pale blue, with a contrasting sheen that shifts between orange and lemon yellow. It reminds me of the light at sunset in California (on the two occasions I've been there).

I paid around £2.99 for this, and for the distinctive colour and 4-day wear, I'd have been glad to pay 2 or 3 times as much. If you see this around online, I recommend picking it up.


  1. Beautiful colour. Right up my street!

  2. This reminds me of a polish I got last week at the Westfield Beauty Base for 99p, it's L. A. Colors 'Shocker' - a bright pink with a pale blue/purple sheen like the yellow in this one.

  3. Lovely colour but I don't think it'd look right on my skintone unfortunately.

    I'd love to check out this shop you've mentioned though - would really appreciate if you could let us know whereabouts it is!

    Julianne - L.A. Colors have some great shades, even though the formula isn't always the best. I bought some great oranges for the summer.
