So beautiful. I love the sparkles in there. Application of this product is very easy and requires about 3 coats to be fully opaque.

I love this polish. I've worn it both over a darker color & by itself - I like it better over another color for greater depth effect & sparkle. By itself it's sheer & looks more like pewter-silver glitter which I already have many other boring bottles of. It has a sheer grey base w/tons of silvery glitter. So I've worn it over black polish so far & it looks fabulous that way. By itself it took me about 4 coats to get some kind of opacity to it, & it needs 1-2 layers of topcoat to shine it up as by itself it dries matte (which looks pretty cool too, when in the mood).

I expected the glitter to be more dense, hence the four stars. However, when I layer it over another polish it's awesome! I love it over a cream black nail polish or any other dark color, really. It even looks good by itself, but you have to layer it quite a bit, probably about four coats to get it to be opaque.

This was the only one of the Metro collection to catch my eye (I'm automatically drawn to sparkles) and I'm glad I got it. I was unsure about trying it on its own so I layered it over Wet 'n Wild Disturbia and it looks great! The glitter is a lot more dense than I expected it to be, but that's ok with me. There are different colors of glitter and it looks very interesting on the nail. It reminds me of Sally Hansen Purple Gala, as if those colors were suspended in a clear base rather than a solid, foil-like finish. I love PG so this is a clear win for me.
I can't speak to the wear because I just applied it, but I was so excited about the color that I had to write a review right away. I got this on sale at Ulta so the price isn't bad. I'd buy this again if I ever ran out.

This polish is part of the Metro Collection.
It's all glitter and sparkle. The liquid has a slight lavender color to it. I experimented and used it on it's own. It took me four coats to get it opaque. I did use thinner coats because thicker ones can peel off.
Though it does not match the darker color in the bottle, it really is an amazing color on its own. Silver, white, purple, sparkle all in one. It sparkles in any light. It has so much depth of color, more so than any polish I've ever tried. It shimmers more than anything. The texture/look is more like a glitter christmas ball.
Application was easy. No drag and it dried quickly. It was smooth and not runny. Obviously, you have to let it dry completely or else applying the next layer will drag off the glitter from the previous.

Using a topcoat does not take away from the glitter at all, nor does it change the texture. It almost seems to blend in with the polish.

Wear is okay. After three days I noticed a chip and I haven't even been doing too active. It's now four days and no further damage or general tip wear.

I'd be weary of using it on its own again but it would be great as a layer of sparkle to any polish.

I'd buy again.
