The previous reviewers treated this polish as a regular polish and it is not a regular polish, it's a topcoat. It is not meant to be worn alone. This topcoat looks AMAZING over dark colours, especially black. I love to pair it with blue (put it on top of OPI's Road House Blues = loveliness) and purple as well. It will also give a nice subtle, glittery sheen to lighter colours. I plan to do some experimenting with it and a couple of China Glaze's holiday shades. I really love this topcoat and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to jazz up their dark polishes.

I picked this up at Sally for $1.99. It looks like a pale violet with crazy iridescence but it's actually a clear topcoat with subtle green and pink shimmer. You have to be out in the sun to really see it light up. I put it on my bare nails and it's not noticeable indoors. But it'd probably look great on a black polish. Love the grippy rubber top.

Orly Twilight is a pretty but extremely pale sheer lilac polish with iridescent microfine shimmery glitter - in the bottle. On the nail it's an almost total dud. The lilac tone barely shows up and the same goes for the glitter - and that was after four coats. Basically this is nothing more than a topcoat - and a not-so-great one at that. I added this over a pink creme polish that needed sprucing up (after trying it alone to see what it would look like). It added a little bit of sparkle (with three coats of Twilight) and toned down the harshness of the pink creme just a "hair." However, it dried to a dull finish to so it definitely needs another topcoat on top of Twilight to make it shiny again. All in all, there are other, better sparkly topcoats that I could use instead so I won't be repurchasing this one.
