Before nail art became a household idea, Hard Candy was on the scene offering the crazy colors women only dreamed of painting on their fingertips. The fact that each bottle came with a ring that matched your manicure was just icing on the cake. Hard Candy still makes those amazing, affordable nail polishes. Today's equivalent is indie Aussie brand Picture Polish. This company produces its lacquer in small batches, creates crazy and unique colors, and has a cult following.
