Sephora Glittering Nail Polish: Review, Swatches

New Sephora Glittering Nail Polish

Sephora introduces a new line of glittering nail polish sure to glam up those tips and toes.  A sparkling assortment of eight colors to pick to from sure to please your appetite.

The glitterning polishes come in a small compact mini size (.16 oz) that are perfect for travel or on the go which retail for $5.

Since each bottle is packed with loads of color I was able to use two coats on all my swatches.  Some of the formulas were thick and others were just fine.  I actually prefered them on the thick side because less is more and at $5.00 a pop you'll want to save every drop.

The glitter consistency varied between thick & chunky and fine mircoglitter.  Check out all the swatches below.   

Sephora Black Strass Nail Polish

Black Strass - a black with chunky silver glitter.

Sephora Red Ruby Glittering Polish

Red Ruby - a ruby red with chunky pink and silver glitter. 

Sephora Blue Sapphire Nail Polish

Blue Sapphire - a deep royal blue with chunky silver and blue glitter. 

Sephora Blue Sapphire and Essie Starry Night

Blue Sapphire has a royal blue base compared to Essie's navy and the glitter color & consistency are different as well.  Although they are both different, Blue Sapphire can satisfy your Starry Starry Night lemmings.  Shhhh, I wont tell..

The next three swatches have fine micro shimmer.

Sephora Violet Amethyst Nail Polish

Violet Amethyst - one of my favorites, a deep violet purple with pink, purple and rustic micro shimmer. 

Sephora Pink Fuchsia Nail Polish

Fuchsia Quartz - a fuchsia pink with silver micro shimmer.

Sephora Beige Topaz Nail Polish

Beige Topaz - a light beige gold with silver chunky & microshimmer.

I'll be posting a you tube review in a the next couple days.  Some of my favorites are Black Stass, Blue Sapphire, Violet Amethyst.  The glittering nail polishes are now available at Sephora and retail for $5.00.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
