I used this over Essie's Jiggle High, Jiggle Low (metallic silver colour) as an accent nail - my other nails were painted with Essie's Leggy Legend). Holy Metallic Holiday Nails! Essie polishes are a steal at their price point, the formula is easy to work with - and the glitter was well suspended in the clear base, which made it a dream to apply! I had to take one star away due to the fact that it was pure hell to remove, as most glitters are, even using my fool-proof, tried& true methods… But…hey, the completed manicure DID look stunning!
Like most of the layering glitters that Essie has available its really great because it can be used in conjunction with anther polish as a top coat or you can layer the crap out of it (like 5 coats) and have that real "disco ball" in your face glam sparkle. A tip for you if you do want the intense sparkle, do one coat and make sure it dries completely then do another and another. Go to bed and in the morning apply a few more coats (always letting it dry completely between applications) and then BAM intense sparkle nails.
