Got the RED chunky (NOT the one with fine and chunky mixed together). At first I was really worried that even one coat would never dry. But with some OPI DRI DROPS, success! I have the glitziest nails for holidays (oh hello, Valentine's day, nice of you to approach)!
Hope the product wears well aka doesn't chip like mad.
Only downfall (IMO) is that the glitter is quite sparse, I've had to put on four coats. But hey, I'm blinging like no body's business for sure!
I LOVE these glitter nail polishes. It's not your average glitter, it's massive chunky glitters, seriously like little gems in every bottle!
As with any glitter polish, they can be a little difficult to work with and remove, but the outcome is just so gorgeous and eye-catching. I definitely want more of them. I can imagine layering different colors would just be so gorgeous!
Awesome glitter polish, I bought this because I didn't want to spend the $$$ on the Deborah Lippmann 'Happy Birthday' that everyone loves so much.
The best part of this polish is that it makes a great layering coat when sandwiched between two coats of jelly polish. I also wore this over black for NYE and it looked really cool.
People say it's difficult to remove, which it is if you don't know what you're doing. Either use the Elmer's glue base coat trick (if you don't know, Google it), or the foil method. Either way, taking off the polish only takes a few minutes.
Pretty and fun on its own, or on top of another shade. Milani n/p is inexpensive but I still wait for sales since I usually stock up. I like to see the glitter "gems" so it helps that the brush is on the smaller side and doesn't lay them all down at once. I would repurchase:)
I adore this nail polish! I believe it came out before Happy Birthday.. Though the two are very similar. I love how fast this dries (as with most glitters) it wears very well-I've had it on for 2weeks on my toes in the past. If you use 2 coats you will get nice coverage compared to other standard glitter polishes. Overall one of my favs, and one of two that I own a backup of..
As many others have said, this is a GOOD, CHEAP semi-dupe for Happy Birthday or Rainbow Connection. Mine was an impulse buy since it was the last one in stock, but I'm glad I found it and picked it up. No major issues with it-- it doesn't wear super long but I change out mani's constantly anyways.
I love glitter so I love this. I ALWAYS get compliments on my nails when I wear it. The only downfall is that it chips off in huge chunks shortly after applying it. I would still buy it again though, it is worth the constant reapplying.
I just bought this last night. I was looking at a blog for nail art and the blogger had glittered tips using a different dupe for DL's Happy Birthday. Apparently, there's a Wet N Wild dupe, but I couldn't find it at Target, luckily I saw Milani's version and I snagged it. For some reason it took me 15 minutes to open the bottle. I don't know if it was the glitter that makes the cap stick, but it was really hard to get it open! I used the color to create glittered tips and I used a dark base. It looks great.
I adore this fun nail polish! Like others have mentioned Milani's Jewel FX Gems is a dupe for several higher end nail polishes. I actually prefer it to the Sephora's OPI Spark-tacular, since the glitter is bigger on the Milani's version. So many different ways to wear this polish. You can wear it on its own and over an array of several colors. I also love that you can build this color up, or actually just build up layers of glitter. So much fun on you fingertips :)
I hardly write reviews, but I thought this nail polish was so neat! I have a friend who had the DL "Happy Birthday" and this is an excellent dupe, in fact, this covers a bit better than the DL brand IMO. I had initially bought this to go over a number of nail polishes, as it would look adorable over so many colors, but I wanted to pack several coats onto my nail to see what the overall effect would be. I posted the pic. Would make a fun beach pedicure! I currently have this on my toe nails, with an overall fuchsia polish with a couple of coats of this on the tips, looks really cute! I went to my second Walgreens today and found one lowly bottle hidden behind another glittery shade, I will repurchase this if I can find it again!
