Generally I am not a fan of glitter nail polish. When I want something sparkly, I want to be able to see if from across the room. I am constantly disappointed by the amount of glitter in nail polishes, until now.

A buy one get one 50 percent off sale at Rite-Aid prompted me to give the Sally Hansen Gem Crush glitter nail polish a shot.

I give the glitter polish 4 stars out of 5.

Even in the bottle you could tell this isn’t your average glitter polish — it was almost solid glitter.

I put two coats of the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength no chip nail color (#460 Save The Date) on all of my fingers, but only put one coat on my ring fingers. Then, on my ring fingers I added two coats of the Gem Crush polish (#06 Razzle Dazzler) and it covered over the dark purple almost completely.

I love it.

Unless it is a special occasion (Christmas, New Year’s, etc.) I don’t think I would ever paint all of my nails with the glitter polish —that’s just overkill — but it makes for a nice accent on a nail or two.

After a day, I don’t have any chips in my nails, but time will tell how long that will last.

My only complaint is that the glitter is a MAJOR pain to take off. Almost to the point it isn’t worth wearing, that bad. I definitely recommend this product.

4 out of 5 stars.
