Good Morning Polished People!
There are so many awesome indie polishes out there. The thing I most like about indie polishes is the variety of glitter that the polish makers use. They use giant hexes, squares (which, by the way I would just about kill to get some square glitter, especially black and/or white square glitter), stars all kinds of shapes. I love them!! I don’t have any of those crazy glitter indies though so when I saw that Wet N Wild was releasing these Fergie glitters and there was a star glitter in the collection I just about peed my pants. I was on a mission to find this bad boy. I had to go to three Walgreens (they are apparently a Walgreens exclusive) to find this and when I did I grabbed two bottles. I also got the black and gold glitter, which I’ll show you all later. For today- let’s have a peek at this star glitter I got my hands on!
WnW Hollywood Walk of Fame
What you see is my Mrs. Robinson nails from yesterday, topped with one coat of Klean Color Chunky Holo Fuchsia for some added sparkle and then several coats of Hollywood Walk of Fame on top with Seche Vite dry fast top coat.
Hollywood Walk of Fame is multicolored glitter (red, light blue, silver, gold, lavender) with some sort holographic bar glitters in two widths in a clear base.
The application for Hollywood Walk of Fame can be a little rough. The glitters are a little hard to get onto your nail but with a little dabbing and some creative applying you can get plenty of the stars onto your nails. I applied it by inverting the bottle, then scooping plenty of stars up on the brush, wiping them off on the inside of the neck of the bottle (where they’re more accessible) and then using the brush again to pick which ever star or stars I want to apply to the nail. I repeated this for each nail. When I had the stars where I wanted them, I just dipped my brush into the bottle after it’d sat upright for a minute and picked up plenty of the clear base and used that to smooth out the stars a little before I applied my top coat. The base is pretty thick and takes a while to dry/harden but the Seche Vite really helped. If you didn’t have a good quick drying top coat it would probably stay soft forEVER.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
I think the star glitters are cool and I’m glad to see some unique glitters in a drugstore brand so for that reason I give this a Yes, Please. That being said- I definitely didn’t need two bottles. I’m sure the base has to be thick to hold the glitters up so that didn’t bother me much, and I expected a tricky application with these big stars. The only problem I had with this polish is that it looked SOOO JUVENILE! I went to work wearing these nails today and of course all the kids loved it, but I seriously felt like a 7 year-old. If I wear this polish again, I’ll definitely put it over black and definitely not add any extra glitter because I’m into all kinds of nail art but nails that look like they belong to a first grader… not so much.
How do you like these nails? If didn’t know I was a grown woman, how old would you think the person wearing these nails would be? Let me know what you think and please don’t forget to check out my guest post on The Little Canvas today. Thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
