I recently tried Tip Top nail polish for the first time. I also tried my very first glitter nail polish.
The silver glitter pieces are a combination of small and large hexagon glitter pieces. The largest has about a 2 mm diameter. It reflects light in green, pink, blue, orange and yellow. The silver glitter pieces are suspended in a colourless medium. The glitter pieces are fairly sparse and you would not get a completely silver nail using this polish. It needs to be applied over a background colour. The background colour plays a large role in the final look of your nails.
The thickness of the glitter on this nail was achieved with 6 coats of glitter.
Only one coat of glitter looks more like this.
This stuff is strong. It lasts. I have worn it for a week. Because the glitter is irregular, slight chips and imperfections are not really visible. My only complaint: This nail polish is really hard to remove. This stuff sticks !
It was my first experience with glittery nails. I loved it. I was popular with all girls under 10, even impressed a boy or two. But a colleague did tell me that I would never again be taken seriously.Other reviews can be found here, here and here. This is my New Years nails.
Tip top also has a very nice facebook page.
