40 days and 40 Nights Of Beauty Cult Classics
Day 29 , Hard Candy's Sky
David Letterman is known for inquiring about a star's fragrance. Letterman has complimented Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts and Mia Farrow on their scents.
One night, over a decade ago, he complimented a young starlet named Alicia Silverstone on her toe color.
She stated that it was Sky by a company called Hard Candy.
The polish and company became an overnight sensation.
Dineh Mohajer created Sky to match a baby blue platform sandal that she adored. She mixed several nail polishes together to create the perfect sky blue shade. Little did she know that she would create a successful business and a nail polish cult classic. Hard Candy revolutionized the nail polish industry. The Hard Candy team made it cool and profitable to create and wear hip shades. Urban Decay and Revlon's Street Wear line all followed the HC trend. There might not have been a Chanel Black Satin if not for Hard Candy's Sky paving the way.
Sephora relaunched the Hard Candy classic shades and once again Sky has managed to sell out.
