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 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 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.

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.
