Fantastic glitter accents!
on 1 October 2013
I don't usually review on Amazon, but felt I had to write something about this product as it has so many negative reviews, that seem to be because people don't understand what this product is actually intended to do, and their expectations have been dashed.
This product will not create a full coverage glitter effect on your nails.
It will add a smaller number of sparkles to each nail ... so, one coat of the varnish will typically add 20+ tiny glitter hexagons, 6+ medium glitter hexagons and 4+ large glitter hexagons ... you can vary this, and I usually try to add fewer glittery bits.
Normally I paint my nails a solid colour then try to just add a few glittery accents to each nail. The red version of this varnish is fabulous as an accent to many different colour polishes. I also own the blue version, but find I use it with much less frequency.
I have had so many compliments on my nails when I've used this red glitter ... I usually use it on top of black/blue/purple nail varnish. This glitter catches the light in a stunning way that will have people wondering how your nails are so sparkly and envying your your snazzy nails. Over the right base colour this glitter gives your nails that precious gem stone look.
The only major flaw with this polish is when it comes to removing it ... but this is the same for all glitter polishes, at least the ones I've tried ... it is hard to remove, and I often end up having to peel off at least a few of the larger bits of glitter, as they simply won't come away with nail polish remover. This is the only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star review!
