Swatches and Review: Rockstar Nails - Punk Rock Barbie

Hello Darlings, 
It's Friday, and I've got an Indie to show y'all!!

Black and White glitter seems to be getting around quite a lot lately, so I'm really happy to show y'all this one. 
When Rockstar Nail on Etsy said she would send me a polish to review, I wasn't expecting this one, but when I got it and saw that it was black and white with a little bit of pink in it, I was like YES, Mama Likes!
Here's a bottle shot. 

I Know this is not your traditional polish bottle shape, but fear not, there's a brush in it. Lol.

I was excited how I could see from the outside of the bottle that the glitters were all over the place. I can't say it enough, I'm tired of sinking glitters  in Indie polishes. So this was a pleasant surprise. :-)

For my swatches, I layered it over Sinful Color - Ocean. I wanted something that will show all of the colors in Punk Rock Barbie. 

Application was nice with this, But I can't tell you how many coats this is, as I had to apply this using the "dabbing" method. I didn't have to fish for glitters, but I found that dabbing worked best.


I then decided to use the same dabbing method to apply the polish on my nails without a base color.

This polish wasn't meant to be worn alone, as all others that might look like it. It's a glitter topcoat that can be worn over so many colors! I LOVE THAT! BUT As you can see, if you want to wear this alone, you'll have to use quite a number of your polish. Lol... The dabbing method works to cover all spots so you don't leave naked nails visible underneath, like on my ring finger in the picture above.


Overall thoughts? 
I Love the Extra pink in the Black and White glitter we happen to see so much lately.
Everything appears fine with the polish and the smell is just like regular polish. Not offensive.
TOPCOAT is necessary as glitters like this tend to dry gritty.
If you have gelous, I say use one coat before your favorite fast dry topcoat. :-)
I wish though that it had a bit more base/liquid in it, so I didn't need to "dab" to apply.
But again, the dabbing method is actually kind of a blessing. Less dry time, and more precise application.


Late Night Update: I discussed this with Erika - The creative mind behind Rockstar Nails, and she assured me that she's fixing that issue. I LOVE when businesses take the recommendation of reviewers. Yet another seller quality I Love!

  1. I must admit that I'm not a fan of black/white glitters, and that may sound strange bearing in mind that I'm a huge glitter fan. I don't know... they haven't really convinced me yet. Perhaps one day... :)

    1. That's what I thought too. It wasn't "too much" in person at all. Just enough "wow factor".

  5. Love this! I wish I could deal with glitter polishes though =( I'm so over the impossible to take offness/ruining my nails with acetone. Oh well, I'll just stare at your lovely pics!

    1. That's why I put a coat of some "meh Top coat" over my glitters, wait like 2-5 minutes, and use my fingers to peel off the polishes. Lol..

      The wet new coat of polish saturates and wets the entire polishes on my nails. So peeling is easy. :-)

      You too can enjoy Glitter polishes sugar. Yes you can. :-D

  7. I gotta say, this catches my eye more than most glitters do. Black and white have been going around lately, but I loooove the pink thrown in there, and other colors would be perfect too. I am in love.=]
