Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink and NARS Midnight Express

I was in a layering mood recently and this combination happened:

One coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Rockstar Pink over NARS Midnight Express. I loved this combination. I'm holding the bottle of Gelous basecoat to remind me of the trick I learned. I put a coat of Gelous over the glitter and then used quick dry topcoat to make the glitter more smooth. Sometimes with really chunky glitters I use two coats of topcoat, but if you use the Gelous underneath instead it seems to be a lot smoother and shinier than plain quick-dry
topcoat.


This is what the Sally Hansen glitter looks like alone:

It's a really dense multi-color glitter (great coverage) that consists of light pink, purple, blue, red and a little silver.

  2. I like the color a lot. Very nice. What kind of top coat do you use so the nail color wont chip all fast?

  3. That reminds me a lot of OPI Mad As A Hatter. Either way, I like this one layered over the blue!

  15. I definitely like that better than the glitter polish on its own. Gives it a sophistication, n'est pas? ;0)

  19. I've held Rockstar in my hands quite a few times deciding if I should bother with it or not, and I imagined layering it over something blue like Royal Navy...so this was a great post to see! I just might have to grab it next time I'm at Walmart! :-) Thanks!

  21. How do you make the glitter polish so smooth on your nail? Your nails always look so smooth and shiny. Is Gelous the trick?

  23. I have Rockstar Pink. Love all that glorious glitter. Thanks for the tip about the topcoat.

  24. So if you layer you should totally layer Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Lavendar Pearl over any black. I'm so happy I scored this polish at the dollar store about a week ago because it is a near dupe of Orly's Space Cadet.

    So excited!!!
