Two really great nail polishes came to my house recently. The first was Cult Nails I Got Distracted. It's gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. It will be featured in a post all of it's own because it deserves maximum attention with it's holographic deep blackened green features. I wanted it since it's first inception and am so happy to have this polish. Go get it. Now. Wait!! Finish the post and then go get that polish!! (Full swatches and review soon!!)
The second polish came home while I still wearing I Got Distracted. It's Wet N Wild's Fergie nail polish in Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's totally Fergalicious. Perhaps the funnest nail polish I own. It might seem a little childish at first, all full of multi-colored stars, but it will surely get your fingers noticed. You won't be able to stop looking at them; it's just so fun. I thought it would be all kinds of awesome over I Got Distracted. It was $3.99 at Walgreen's.
When I see a polish with large glitters like this, I'm always a little worried that application might be spotty. Sometimes, as in the case of OPI Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It, the glitter pieces are so few and far between that it's difficult to get enough of it on the brush to get even just one accent on your nail. I didn't have that problem at all with Hollywood Walk Of Stars.
I learned a valuable trick from Jessika of Polish Insomniac. With a polish that has large glitter pieces, turn it upside and you'll get more glitter on the brush. I did this and got so many glitter pieces that I was able to do my whole hand with one dip of the brush. They just kept coming out of the brush!!
You'll find a delightful array of colored stars along with some holographic ones. There is also short bar glitters in the polish that add sparkle. It's hard to photograph because there's just so much shine and sparkle from the glitter pieces that the camera can't accurately record it. There's so much reflection off a flash and without one, it looks dull so put on your imagination to view it in your mind's eye the way that it's seen to the naked eye.
Two with flash:
One without flash:
I did have a star that stuck out over the edge of my index fingernail, (you can see it in the last picture), and I had to clip the star just a tad so it wouldn't feel awkward, (the end result is the two previous pictures). You can easily arrange the stars, but work quickly because it dries a bit faster than you might think.
The only place in my town that carries Wet N Wild Fergie is Walgreen's and Cult Nails can be purchased on their website and beginning 8/24/12 on Gloss 48. Both polishes were purchased by myself. Links are included solely for your ease of continued information and/or purchase.
