I just read that Dineh Mohajer is going to be the beauty editor for a new mag called Nylon.The first issue is set for march!
New Sonic Glosses!
By now I am sure most of you know the story about how Hard Candy came to be. Young medical student Dineh Mohajer wanted a funky blue polish to match a pair of sandals..she found it with the help of some of her friends in the chemistry department, she mixed her own. Dineh's sister, Pooneh, thought she was on to something, so Dineh bottled some and brought them to funky salon Fred Segals, where she happened to work. The bottles sold as fast as she could manufacture them. With help from her family and friends a business was born. Before, there were only staple pinks, browns and reds upon the shelves. Now you can find just about any shade you can imagine.
The Original Six. Violet, Sky, Mint, Sunshine, Peachy and Bubble Gum. These bottles are the original bottles dating back to 95. Look at how mung they are. Bubble Gum however, is a new bottle of it. That and they've been reconstituted with clear polish over the years, before I gave in and bought new ones.
These bottles took what seems like months to arrive. The original polish formula was thick and chalky, but one dry ultra foxy nonetheless.
New Fall Shades
Melt (Gold glitter>), Normal (Burgandy)and Hype (Metallic brown).
Love polish, some of the proceeds go to the American Foundation for Aids Research. It is a white based polish with a gold sheen.

Lip CubesLip Cubes (around $12.00 US), come in five shades ranging from blue to pink. The gloss is thick and glittery, soft on lips....Best part being it tastes and smells like cake batter.
Candy Man, Hard Candy's line of men's nailpolish developed with Dineh Mohajer's boyfriend Ben. The polishes from left to right are Dog, Oedipus, Superfly (aka Superman), Gigolo, Cowboy, Libido, and Testosterone. Supposedly more Candy Man polishes are being developed.
Highball Nail Gloss, marked as being made and distributed by Hard Candy. I bought these at Urban Outfitters in spring '96. Applied they are more of a gloss than a flat lacquer.

The pencils are available in Cyber (Black w/silver glitter), Hyper (Brown w/gold glitter), Pink Eye (Pink w/silver), Sky (Light Blue w/silver), Haze (lilac w/silver) and Trailer Trash (grey w/ silver).
