Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT I'm so happy to have this in my nail polish collection I wear it all the time and it makes me feel girly and really put together hahah. I always pair this with a light pink polish with a pearl finish alternating the fingers and looks great every time. A must have, and will for sure get you some compliments

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Sparkle I adore this effect over a pale classic pink like ballet slippers. It is so glittery that it threw glints of light around my car as the sunlight caught my nails when driving. A fabulous luxe effect of pure sparkle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More is more!! This color is very sparkly and not for the faint of heart! The jumbo sparkles go on easy (but are extremely hard to take off). The sparkles are different sizes some quite large for nail polish and some more like glitter which gives this polish a modern effect. Layering this color brings out your creative side because the pink can either blend in or stand out from whatever is under it! I personally enjoy the latter, especially for NYE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Valentine's Day Last year for Valentine's day, I wore this pink glitter applied liberally over a deep red shade of Essie polish (I think it may have been called Forever Yummy, but really any red will do) and got tons of compliments - a perfect V-day combo. I'll probably do the same this year.I like how all the glitter is perfectly round but varies in size - adds some great dimension to the sparkle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sparkle I bought this about a month ago and I can't stop using it! It's got gorgeous sparkle and a wet shine, but it also has surprising staying power. Plus it's just the right shade of pink to look good on just about an color I want to use. I just love this polish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest little pink sparkles! This polish goes on so well. Enough polish goes on in the first coat that you really dont even need a second unless you just want it. I love the softness of the pink color and I recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome nail addition I bought this last season and it has served me well! I keep going back to it whenever I feel like just a color is dull. Love how it highlights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So sparkly!!! This is my all time favorite essie! I don't even layer it over another color, iI just keep building it up until I have a complete glitter mani.
