Sally Hansen – Glam Fest

Today I have one of the polishes from the Sally Hansen Ltd Edition Spring 2014 Xtreme Wear Color Vibrations Glitter Mania collection (way to go SH for the longest collection name in a while….) For more info on the entire collection, you can see this page on Nouveau Cheap.  This is Glam Fest a multi coloured glitter in a clear base.

Ah, glitter polish.  What’s not to love?  This one has mulit coloured glitters and small silver glitters within it.  I wore this over a gray creme from KIKO so all the glitter is from the bottle. My experience with the recent Xtreme glitters has not been good.  In my opinion, there is too much base coat, meaning that to get more than three bits of glitter, you have to pass over more than once.  Plus if you dare to put it on too thickly, it bubbles quickly.  Thin and slow is the way here and lets be honest, which a cheap drugstore buy, you want quick.  Not slow.

Much as I love this combo, its not something I would reach for in a hurry.  Drying time, even with top coat, too ages……

I didn’t get this in the UK, I bought it via a reseller on eBay along with a number of other polishes and lip balms (don’t have enough of them either) so if you want to take the plunge and you are in the UK, Europe or beynd, eBay is your best bet.  Otherwise for those of you in North America check your local drugstores as there may be a few of these knocking about.

Let me know what you think.  What is your fave glitter top coat?
