Strobe Light looks gorgeous in the bottle. I bought it because I loved the colour. It was a little disappointing because I was hoping it would be a bit more the way it looks in the bottle, like solid light rose glitter. It's not like that, but it's pretty awesome anyway. If you put it over a fairly dark colour it looks like little droplets of water or stars. It looks good by itself with two or more coats.
The only problem I have with it is that it's ridiculously hard to remove. When you try to rub it off with nail polish remover the polish comes off but the sparkles themselves stick to your nail extremely hard. I imagine it's not so good for yout nails trying to rub that off because the glitter scrapes them. It's actually better to chip it off, but it lasts so well that you could have some glitter on your nails for a long time.
I said I'd buy it again because it's totally worth it, although I probably won't because I like trying new ones instead unless I'm obsessed with the colour.

I love this product. This glittery polish has different sizes of glitter in it and goes with any colour (my favourite colours to use are nude/sand, white, and dark coloured polishes). I always wear it over polish and it works great as a top coat. The staying power is amazing and quite frankly it is hard to take off! But like other Sally Hanson products I have found that it can get clumpy as it ages. Not a problem considering I can get it at my local drug store for 2 dollars. This polish is a MUST have!

I absolutely loveloveloveeee this stuff!!!
I dress quite preppy and girly and this is the perfect compliment to what i wear and it always just cheers me up cuz its so sparkly and pretty
It is soooo pretty and i get loads of compliments on it
The only downside is a lot i tend to use 3 even 4 coats sometime to achieve what i want but for some reason my sister only uses 2 and that works for her haha
this can either b worn over other polishes or by itself (I always wear it by itslelf tho

This polish is glittery and nice to put over a white or dark nail polish. It's just clear with glitters and it was dirt cheap. I'll definitely buy again.

I have recently developed an obsession with glitter! So when I saw this at Shoppers Drug Mart for 2.99, I knew I had to have it. I just did my nails and it is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Love! As a side note, people need to know that glitter polishes are a pain to remove. Be prepared to spend at least five minutes per nail and even then you will still have sparkles left. But it's definitely worth it! Thumbs up.

I am COMPLETELY in love with the amazing sparkle and rainbow effect of Strobe Light! It makes any polish look fun and very pretty, I can't stop staring at my nails when I have it on. It doesn't take a lot of light to see all the colors, but in the sun, it's a stunner. The base is a very, very light pink, I would say not enough to notice though.
The texture is rough after applying, but a top coat easily makes it smooth. I use one coat for a nice fun effect, two if I want my base color to barely shine through.
It wears like iron unless I apply a too thick coat, which once resulted in the glitter peeling/flaking off. Due to its long wear, like all glitters it is a PITA to remove. One big reason I gave this 4 lippies is because it got super gloopy halfway through the bottle. I added LOTS of thinner yet it manages to revert back to a gluelike goop.

various sized holo glitter, very easy to overapply. My nails look like they've been glitter-bombed

I love this to layer over my other polishes, it's pretty and effortless. my only issues are that you need a ton of coats for it to be super glittery, and it's impossible to take off.

This is an awesome glitter polish. Strobe Light is a dense mixture of pink and holographic glitter in a clear base. Some have said it is a dupe for OPI Teenage Dream, but they look different to me. Strobe Light is lighter and has no hex glitter, and Teenage Dream has a pink jelly base as opposed to a clear base. They are definitely in the same color family though. Strobe Light is has a slightly chunky texture but with a top coat it smooths out. The only complaint I have is that the application is a little uneven - I had to do three coats so that the bald patches were covered. But it is an eye catching polish, even though the color is light the scattered holo effect is very noticable. I have it on now over two coats of Essie Mademoiselle and I love it!

I remember having this nail polish for a while. It's a nice glitter, leaning on the rose-pinky color side. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it went goopy when there was half of the glitter still remaining. Had to throw it out, but it was a nice glitter.

This is a really pretty rose gold glitter polish. It remind's me of Orly's Rage but in glitter form. Some of the glitter reflects rainbow. I like to layer this on top of other nail polishes. But I think you can build it up enough to wear on its own. You would need to put at least 3 coats though. It can be grainy so I recommend a top coat to smooth things out. And like with all glitters its difficult to remove. I wouldn't buy it again because I want to try different glitter polishes out.

This is a really fun, inexpensive, and versatile polish. I paid less then $3 and have really got a lot of use out of it. It can be worn alone over bare nails and paired with a variety of other colours from pinks, greens, purples, silvers, red, and even black looks stunning. The only gripe I have is it does flake off and chip easily, but a good clear top coat over top does extend and protect the longevity of wear.

I never, ever wear sparkles but this Sally Hansen baby had me at hello!
The color (colors I should say) is so, so cute without being to cutesy, I find: sparly without entering Ke$ha's territory...
When I put it on, I couldn't stop staring at my nails--it is that pretty.
I like to put on only 2 coats, so as to make it cute & discreet.
My only gripe with it: it flakes of very easily.

strobe light is a pale pink glitter nail polish with multi color glitter as well. I pair this one with a soft,almost nude pink. It is verry pretty! It shines,last long with a top coat! To complete a nail color or to bring little stars on a soft nude pink.love it!

It's fun! It jazzes up any nail polish - light or dark. Or can be worn solo. Very cheap. Paid less than $4 (CAD), I believe. Dries quickly! I have it overtop of a mango-coloured polish on my toes, at the moment. It looks really awesome. More coats = more glitter. So have fun with it and experiment. Unfortunately, the downfall for me is that Sally Hansen tests their products on animals. Therefore, I will not be repurchasing.

theee best and CHEAPEST glitter nail polish out there. i love the color and pairs well with a lot of colors surprisingly. my favorite at the moment is pairing it with a nude/pink color and appling 2 coats of the Strobe Light on top. i absolutely love the champagne effect that takes place. love it! (you can see a picture of the pairing i used in the product gallery)

The polish clumps when the bottle is two third finished, and is hard to remove but the color is wonderful and it makes the manicure last longer.

Gorgeous color and an exact dupe to OPI Katy Perry Teenage Dream! Love to wear this on my toes for an extra little sparkle. I also find it really flatters my skin tone and makes me look tanner.
