There's a trick to working the glitter

Glitter polishes tend to go on my nails smoothly and give me trouble coming off. Hoping to avoid this, I used a buff-natural color nail polish as a base coat, then used the Ruby Wing color changing polish (Ride 'Em Cowgirl) on top of it.

My manicurist uses a "stippling" effect when using glitter polish, tapping the brush down the surface of the nail to get a high-impact glittery effect. I did that with this product and the gold color was very vibrant. The color change takes place in direct sunlight only so at first I thought I had been sent a dud bottle.

In the direct sunlight, suddenly, the gold took on a rose-gold tone which was beautiful but the changing color was not evenly placed, probably because it wasn't apparent when I polished my nails with the "stippling" technique. The product also chipped from the tips of my nails very easily. This wasn't so apparent when it was gold but when it turned rose-colored my manicure looked busted.

Last, when I used polish remover to clear my nails the glitter clung terribly and had to be worked off with a coarse emery board.

I will try the product in a pedicure where tip-chipping won't be such an issue. Not so sure I would want to purchase more of this product for my hands.

Ride Em Cowgirl polish

This nail polish is really fun. I wore in while in Florida on vacation and it totally works! I felt like a little kid when I saw the polish change colors; I was surprised that it made such a drastic change in the shade and in the sun. This shade is very sparkly and the only issue I have with it is that it was difficult to take off. Those sparkles wanted to stay on my nails!

good idea, poor execution

product does actually change color and is a cool idea, was just executed poorly. the nail polish was not really great quality. didn't go on nicely, didn't stay on long, scratched easily.

Awesome!

I LOVE THIS NAIL POLISH!! I recieved the almost neon pink one in my box and this is perfect for me! That color is all I wear on my toes! It is long lasting with almost no chipping! Thanks for sending me this! Ruby Wing is definitely a close competitor with OPI!!

Fun stuff!

I liked this nail polish because it changed from pink to red when in the sun. It was fun to watch change, but it wasn't as significant of a change as I was hoping for!

Gooey nail polish

I have the glitter one which is pretty gooey and thick. Beautiful color when it goes on but I had to apply many coats and with such a small sample bottle it uses up a lot of polish.

not a fan

This polish did not go on even or smoothly, even after several applications. It was streaky and rubbed off easily.
