Let's just put this out there: this is a top coat. The polish itself has no color and there is not enough glitter density to create total opacity. That being said, it's pretty awesome. It's a basic, silver, holographic discoball type glitter which is easy to spread evenly on the nail with a single coat (and swipe of the brush). It costs a dollar. At most.
I have another silver glitter top coat that I like more, but it's 9 times the price, so if you're in the market for a glittery top coat, this is a great budget option.
I believe this polish was made to be used as a topcoat. And for that purpose it works FANTASTIC! The glitter has a lovely holo effect and I like the two small sizes of circular glitter. They look like little dots of holo on the nail, really cute. I was also impressed with the smooth-ness of the glitter. I applied this over three coats of Wet 'n Wild Craze - Jade and my regular topcoat (Seche Vite), and you can hardly tell the glitter is on top because it's so smooth. Dry time was excellent as well. I'll definitely buy this again, for such a cheap price this is a must for anyone who loves fun manicures.
one of my favorites! of course the price (usually $1) intices anyone to try it. looks pretty over both bright and deep colors. has larger glitter flecks than the average glitter topcoat, which makes it more youthful and funky. i am very pleased with it
I was looking for an inexpensive glitter polish to experiment with and this fit the bill! At only $0.99 it's a great bargain, however I agree with some of the reviewers that the glitter chunks are larger than normal, I'm not sure if I like that or not, we'll see!
This looked great in the bottle, but trying to apply it in an even-ish layer over my nails was impossible because it's so sparse w/ the glitter. it took many layers to get it even, and once it was on it just didn't flash different colors like it did in the bottle no matter what kind of light I was in. I've pretty much loved all the other Mega Shine's I've tried, and this isn't awful, but it's not good either. you could easily find something similar that works better in the same price range.
I hate to give it a bad review, but I really don't like it. It's sparkly only under some angles, otherwise it looks just like silver blobs, very strange. The sparkles are very big and sparse. Not pretty.
Theres not much I can add to what the other reviewers have said. It is awesome especially since I paid just 60 cents for it!!! I dont know how to add pics but I came up with a nail look to really showcase this nail polish. First I painted vertical stripes of rainbow colors. I used to a pretty lime green w/ a hint of blue shimmer,a shimmery turquoise, a metallic "y'' purple, a medium shimmery pink, and finally a neon orange. I applied the stripes while the previous stripe was still wet for optimal blending. I let my nails dry then applied 2 thin coats of a gorgeous white pearl. Let nails dry and finally applied a coat of kaleidoscope then top coat! OMG it looks so hot I really wish I can post a pic but you should definitely try it!!!
Great holographic rainbow-colored glitter nailpolish (clear polish base). The glitter effect of this polish makes it very aptly named. I love adding this polish on top of other colored polish to give my manicure more oomph or a new funky, playful look. The colorful sparkliness is bold & shows up easily in 1 or 2 coats. More coats give it more glittery punch! Only 99 cents @ local drugstore. Can't go wrong. Packaging is great too & easy to work with (long rectangular bottle, decently long-handled cap). Definitely an item to have in my manicure collection.
BTW has anyone tried making their own glitter nailpolish by buying a vial of loose makeup glitter & adding it to a bottle of clear polish or a bottle of glitter polish to kick up the glitter intensity? It's something I'm planning to try......
I was in search of a good 'blingy'(god how I hate that word) glitter polish & picked this up for $1 at Wally World. That's my hand in the picture, and I have on about 7-8 coats there. The picture doesn't do this polish any justice at ALL. I'll try to take a better pic because in real life it's so sparkly it's actually distracting! It takes a LOT of coats to achieve even partial opacity with this polish but it's worth it. My fingers could light up a room with this stuff :D
The only reason it doesn't get a 5 is simply because it takes so many coats. They should have put more glitter in it. That can most likely be remedied by starting out with a good silver base coat though.
