Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Rockstar Pink

I am a fan of glitter nail paints which have purple in them. The day I saw the sparkly Rockstar Pink, I knew I have to have my hands on it. 

Sally Hansen Hard as nails Xtreme Wear Rockstar Pink is an dense glitter polish which has multi colored glitter ( pink, purple, blue, red and silver).

It has a dense formula which goes opaque in two coats.

How I wear it

I apply a thick Elmer's glue/ Fevicol layer on my nails and let it dry for 15 minutes so that it becomes transparent. Then I apply the paint. To remove the paint I just peal it off from my nails. This pealing won't ruin the nails.

  • Nice coverage.
  • Long wear time.
  • Dries quickly.
  • Budget Friendly.
  • Being a thick glitter it is annoying to remove.
Retail Price
 $2.50 (for 11.8 ml)

Here are the swatch comparisons in three different lighting conditions.

With such a bright glitter I wanted to pair a creme polish. I paired it with Colorbar Lemon drop (Sheer yellow creme). As Lemon drop is pretty sheer I have to layer it 3-4 times for the design.

The nail art design is inspired by Amy from The Polish Perfectionist. I loved her beetle inspired nails. So I tried the nails in my own way...

I used a nail art tape for the design and peeled it off while the yellow creme was wet.

Thanks for stopping by. Stay beautiful...
