Attitude ~ Night Sky & Glam Glitter top coat

Attitude ~ Night Sky & Glam Glitter top coat
Black with silver micro shimmer & Clear base with holographic glitter

When I bought this polish, I thought it would actually look like the night sky on my finger nails. I’m sorry to say that it turned out not to be.

The formula is OK - not great, but not bad either...just OK. The first coat was on the tricky side because I kept pulling the already applied polish off with the brush. The second coat saved me from all the bald spots and streaks, and I was satisfied with the level of opaqueness.

It really doesn’t live up to its name though. To me it just looks like any other black polish with silver shimmer in it. The “stars” in the sky are not prominent enough for my likings.

Take a look. Two coats, no top coat:

The stars can be arranged though! ;) Attitude themselves made a polish to make up for the missing stars. It’s called Glitter Glam Top Coat and it’s a clear base packed with holographic glitter in different sizes. There’s even square glitters in it!

I applied a coat of that on top, and whoa! Now we’re talking! This top coat is way more holographic than I imagined it would be!

Here it is:

Talk about a million stars in the sky! :D Here’s a blurry picture, so you can see the holographic effect.

The holo effect is so strong that it’s even visible in low lights. I’ve never seen that in a holo before (not that I’ve seen that many, but still…). So. Desired prettiness levels attained, satisfaction achieved!
