Make sure you shake the bottle HARD. The larger glitter tends to stick at the bottom and can only be brought up by some vigorous shaking or stirring.
That said, I think this polish looks a little cheap. Without a few good topcoats, the glitter looks unevenly shaped (although still very shiny). Also, the base looks a little murky.
Finally, something really weird happened. A chunk of the larger glitter cut through my thumb when I was removing the polish. I had to remove it with tweezers. Pretty painful.
Sample led to purchase
I am so thrilled with this sample that I immediately ordered the large size! It is the fist product that has helped repair my nails from a go round with Gel Nails at a nail salon, one thing I will NEVER do again. I can't wait to try using color over this product to see how that works. But so far this is the best thing that has happened to my nails in close to a year!
Sparkly but chips too easily!
The polish is very pretty and sparkly when you put it on, but completely chipped off my nails within a few days. I was very disappointed as I bought this to wear to Vegas and once I was in Vegas, I was left with half painted, half sparkly nails. Wouldn't buy it again.
