I admittedly don't paint my nails often, I don't really like the feel of polish on my fingernails, but I figured I'd give the sample a try and I just didn't like this one. I got the mini kitten heels color (a very hot pink and bright red), so already this wasn't for me. As I was applying, I noticed the scent was MUCH stronger than most nail polishes. I definitely wouldn't buy this.

Pretty fun nifty idea and all but I'm not really that into it. I love nail polish I'm just not a glitter nail polish kinda girl

ANOTHER POLISH!!!
Sampled

Seriously, I am tired of nail polish! I've received 4 polishes in the last 6 boxes, and I am so so over it. I don't use polish on my fingernails so these will be given away. Good grief, get it together Birchbox!

When I first put on this nail polish, I thought what it meant by color changing was that the glitter sparkles blue. Then I saw on the top of the bottle it said that it was supposed to change from gold to a pinkish color, which confused me because mine didn't the first few times I went in the sun. Then once when I was outside I was shocked because I looked at my nails and parts of them were this nasty, splotchy pink color, so I thought that I had somehow got something on my fingers until I went to wipe it off and discovered it was nail polish. Over all, not a pleasant experience at all. I tried it again later to see if maybe I just didn't put it on heavy enough the first time but it still didn't look nice outside. Also, the glitter was not easy to remove with nail polish remover, but never failed to get on whatever I touched somehow, long after being dry. I'm still finding pieces of glitter in odd places occasionally.

There is no major difference in shades when out in the light.

Not My Favorite Glitter
Sampled

I have used many glitter polishes and this is not my fav of them. It did not go on smooth, I could feel the pieces of glitter once it was dry and it came off in huge chunks. I also never noticed that it changed color and I was out in the sun most every afternoon.

I was turned off by this product because of the color I was sent in the box - I'm not a red OR a gold person! But I tried it with my DIY at home manicure for Valentines Day. The polish didn't last all that long, but it was quite thick with only two coats and no base coat. That's pretty good for a glitter polish.

I didn't really like the way that this nail polish went on- it was rather thick and goopy and I prefer nail polish to go on smooth and creamy

Great concept, but the exception failed. The color went on clear with glitter. Then, when I went outside (after forgetting about the color change) I freaked out seeing what looked like a smashed fingernail! Ha! Anyone who has used polish with glitter knows how difficult it is to remove. Maybe it would have been better to use on toenails as an accent? Definitely not for fingers, or an office environment with a regular "mani"!
