i decided to try this np since i tried one of their megalast nps and it impressed me. this ones pretty good too! like the name states, it really is fast drying which is perfect for someone like me who doesnt have the patience to wait till their nails dry. i picked up this color for the holidays, it looks fab on white, layered with other glitter nps, or on its own if you layer it enough. when i purchased this, i couldnt decide between this and a milani np thats almost the exact same color as this but that one has more glitter and gold glitter too iirc? except this one was half the price. since this ones fast drying, its easy to layer so i dont mind doing it but im still knocking a lippie off for not having enough glitter.
will update about the wear.
I LOVE THIS! I put it over a bright red polish, and its PERFECT for the holidays. For reference, i used a red polish from the Charlotte Russe "Reds Collection"polish set from Christmas 2010. The glitter in this polish is really spread out, and i would use about 2 coats over your polish of choice. Over red, this nail polish is very Christmas-y. I think over a dark blue, purple or black, it wouldn't be so holiday-ish.(?) But the formula is spot-on. Very easy to work with, and dries quickly!
I just picked this up at Walgreen's last night for .69. I really like it. I didn't apply it over a base or anything and it still looks really pretty. You kinda have to press/push the glitter on with the brush but after two coats, it covers fairly well!
I found a bottle of this at Five Below for a whopping $1.99 and decided to give it a try. It's a multilayered glitter polish in a clear base. It dries pretty quickly (fastdry formula) and looks really pretty when layered over a dark color (I used OPI's Black Cherry Chutney for the base color). I think if you use it with darker colors like purple or black it helps get rid of the "Christmas" vibe of this polish. That said, I can't wait to use this with a white pearl base or a deep green in December. It's cheap thrill if you find this - I like it!
This is an interesting polish containing five different glitters: Silver, light blue, red, green, and magenta. Because of the red and green, this gives me a slight Christmas vibe which is kind of weird because I hate holiday themes when it's not the holiday season. At first I thought I could layer this to be one big wall of glitter, but even with 3-4 coats, it's not happening. This is just best as a glittery top coat. I tried it over AA Hunter and is pretty neat. The polish also dries quickly, per the name. If you like glitters, you should try this one.
I bought PoFG b/c I was hardcore lemming DL Happy Birthday! Though they are not exact dupes, I decided at 1.99 and with the Milani Gems (another dupe for DL HB) was not available at my local DS.
Finish: multicolored hexagonal glitter! 3 different sizes
Base: clear base
Colors: Purple, green, red, silver and skyblue
Opacity: 2 heavy coats or 3 medium coats to get decent coverage
Dry time: fast :)
Application: super easy! not thick at all
Durability: I had it on for 3 days before I removed it, but really... I can't comment on it since it wasn't covering my tips. No notable chips.
Price: 1.99 at Walgreens
I think it's a good alternative to DL HB (esp with the change in glitters from what I hear), but the original DL is prettier IMO (I think it has gold and a different red colored glitter + much more dense coverage). I wish there was more glitter, but I guess if it were more loaded with glitter, it may have been more difficult to apply. I haven't used it enough to comment on whether it gets thicker with use, but I have seen no settling issues.
I would re-purchase!
I love this glitter polish, it's unlike anything I own. It actually reminds me of a dupe for a deborah lippman polish (i forgot the name). My favorite way to apply this is over a medium pink color towards the tips, it ends up looking like a pink donut with springkles :) yes it takes a bit of time to dry but nothing out of the ordinary. I think for a deborah lippman dupe, the look, and price alone; it's totally worth it.
I love this polish over black!!! I mostly see the red glitter pieces, the green, & silver. The other two don't stand out as much. My nails chip with this polish, but with a clear coat on top it lasts quite awhile for me! continued >>
I wanted to love this, but in all honesty, I probably won't use it as much as I'd like to. Don't get me wrong, the glitter is pretty, and it has the potential to be a really fun and festive topcoat, but the application process is incredibly frustrating. The glitter is impossible to control. It somehow got all over my fingers (because it actually takes LONGER to dry than other Wet N Wild polishes), but I just couldn't get an even layer of glitter on my nails, even with several coats.
Yes, it's cheap, but some of the other, cheaper Wet N Wild nail polishes deliver way better results. Kaleidoscope (from the Wild Shine line) is a nice glitter topcoat option.
I wear this over my blue and black nail polishes. It doesn't dry fast and I usually have to layer to get lots of glitter. But the effect is worth it and looks so darn cute!
