Mxed feelings but overall I like it.
I am sorry to say this is the single most difficult polish I've ever used. You can't stroke it on like normal -- you have to daub it on in weird streaks and splotches, then hope it settles down into a semblance of smoothness and coverage. Takes at least 3 coats, several remedial daubs, and a lot of focus on the tips to get it looking anywhere near decent. (Yes I have used several glitter polishes before, and no, they have not behaved like this.)
While trying to get the nails painted with any kind of reasonable coverage, little globs of paint nowhere near the edges would suddenly seep down into the cracks between the sides of the nail and the skin, so that you have to run a toothpick, or whatever along that crevice to slice out the misplaced polish. This has literally never happened to me before, cheap polish or not.
Also, it dried very slowly. I tried the Sally Hansen Insta-Dry top coat, after 2 minutes as per usual (has always worked perfectly with other polishes), but it smudged up and ruined the Rock n' Roll coating of that nail. So, I let my hands dry for more like 10 minutes, then applied the topcoat. The Insta-Dry worked like a charm after this longer delay, giving a smooth glossy finish, finally.
It was a lot of trouble, but I loved the results. This is easily one of the prettiest and most unique nail-polish colors I have ever seen: a deep, silvery, almost slaty gray, with fine silver glitter plus a touch of rainbow glitter. It looks beautiful. I don't know if it's the top coat or what, but it only started beginning to chip slightly today, a Friday morning, and I put it on Sunday evening.
It's a mediocre quality polish of a BEAUTIFUL color at a very reasonable price. You just have to put unusual effort into it.
I LOVE the thick/wide style of the brush!!! it really makes it much easier to apply (at least for me)
i wouldn't recommend using this polish alone, however, i used mine with Fergie's Wet n' Wild " Heels of Steel"
I put on three coats of "Heels of Steel" and then two coats of the "Rock n' Roll" and my nails look awesome!!!!
Looks like i had them done. Which is pretty good in my book.
I lucked out cause at Walgreens right now (10/12/13) they had them BOGO.
So how could i resist.... the two colors were sitting right next to eachother calling out to me and i am so glad that i grabbed them!
the Fergie line has a few other colors i wanna try so i will probably go back and get some more, hopefully before the BOGO sale is over.
I think that people who are expecting this glitter to be opaque will be disappointed because it takes about 3 coats to get it to completely cover the nail line.
The glitter isn't too chunky or gritty-which I like. The micro glitters are a nice charcoal grey and the larger glitter pieces reflect yellow, orange, and green. I really like to layer this over a black nail polish.
Overall, a beautiful glitter for the price.
This is a gorgeous deep grey glitter with tiny silver holo discs that give off an awesome rainbow shimmer. The payoff doesn't come until the third coat though. Dries relatively quickly, and I got it on sale at CVS for $1.75.
