Pretty, but doesn't last long.

I really loved the concept of this set- I love the space theme! I especially loved the name Champagne Supernova! I bought the set on sight when I saw it in the Birchbox shop. After opening the box and swatching the colors I was pretty disappointed. All of the holographic glitters (Blinded by the Light, Cosmic Love, Fantastic Voyage, and Champagne Supernova) look the same on their own. I put 4 coats of the polishes on my nails before the slightest difference began to emerge between them, and since they are minis, I didn't want to waste a good fraction of the bottle on a manicure to make sure the sheer polish base was visible. . These are going to be used as glitters over a base polish color. The saddest thing is that the polishes flake off. They don't chip, they come off in a nice sheet. Even with a base coat, my pedicure- which usually lasts forever - didn't make it through the weekend when I used "Lost in Space". The darker colors: Lost in Space and Twilight Zone have a matte finish, which is kinda cool. It does apply on the gritty side, but not as gritty as some other "sandy" polishes.
