I have a love/hate relationship with this polish. I actually bought it, tossed it, and then bought it again. I love the combination of various sizes and shapes (regular and round) of glitter in baby pink, sky blue, silver, and holographic, but it's a pain to get any kind of coverage out of it. The best strategy I've found is to dab the first coat on for more coverage, then apply 1-3 more coats normally, but for me it definitely has to be worn over another polish. The pic I've uploaded shows it over Revlon Lilac Pastelle; it peeled off a day later because I was wearing a half-dozen coats of product.

I am probably a little old for glitter polish but I still can't resist it. I didn't wear it when I was younger, back then it had a sort of "white trash" reputation. Today it seems that anything goes - I really envy the style rules of the younger crowd now.

Seems that out of all the higher end brands I have bought, this one, for 99 cents, really rates! Better over a darker polish than over light or alone, very sparkly, with different colors and types of glitter to give it some depth. I see blue, pink, and shimmery little silvery specks of all shades. Dries pretty fast, and a pain to remove like most glitter polishes. Wish they had more colors. Lots of fun!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the mix of glitter in this polish has changed since NYC changed their packaging (which was maybe a year ago). I used to see this polish when it was in the old style packaging and didn't think much of it. It was a silver glitter base with medium blue and pink hex glitters if memory serves. I picked it up today because NYC was BOGO 1/2 off at Rite Aid - and because I see that it has fine holographic glitter in the mix now! Either it had holo glitter before and I never noticed or they've recently added it to the mix. But in any case it is a gorgeous, dirt cheap holo glitter. Highly rec. checking this one out :D

Starry Silver Glitter looks divine on dark polishes because it forces the silver to show up. On lighter colors, the finer glitter looks like little spots in the sunlight but looks amazing indoors. This one's got the usual multi-colored fine glitter and has blue and pink hexagonal glitter interspersed.

This isn't a one coat glitter and it's not meant to be. Application is a bit of a technique thing but it's really pretty all around.

Also, 99 cents!

Beautiful glitter mixture. Looks great over another color. I don't know how it looks on its own but it was well worth 99 cents.

Really like using this over my nails to add a little oomph. I layer this on top of other colors because in my opinion it doesn't look good by itself. I like to wear this around the holidays because it makes my nails look a bit more festive. Sometimes its hard to apply the big glitters evenly though. It can also be a pain to take off. But overall a really lovely polish. I recommend using a top coat over it to smooth things out.

This is a combination of tiny silver holo glitter and larger light pink and bright blue round glitter in a clear base. It's fine to spice up a boring color, but don't expect to ever get any opaque coverage out of this - in fact, the only way to get more than a few specks of glitter on any given nail is to dab it on rather than brushing it on in strokes. Dries fast even when globbed on, about 20 minutes. I wore it over a neutral light gray (NYC Sidewalkers) for something fun but sophisticated. :)

Found this in my sis' drawer. I usually just love simple matte colors, but I wanted to switch it up a bit. This nail polish is cute and Fun. I love that the circle confetti is scattered over my nail. Formula is thick but it's clear so you can pack it on to add more sparkle to your nails. Right now, Im wearing this over revlon's lilac pastelle. Def will repurchase :)

EDIT: this polish is super cute but such a pain in the butt to remove. It felt like I was scrubbing my nails.

I love this nail polish! I used it to decorate iPhone case which was just plain black and got a billion compliments on it! I also painted my nails black and this over it and got a million more! I don't use it as a nail polish anymore that much but more as a little polish to make my personal belongings more prettier! Like my candle jars, Phone cases, Bobby pins and etc !
